Heaven on Earth – Jo Willis

God’s plan was always that we would experience the gate of heaven – we just have to change our perspective.

Grab onto the hope we have in Christ and the fact the Lord sees the man in the mess this week as we work together to begin to build the church He sees. Be encouraged in this with Ps Jo Willis’ latest message – the first part of our new series – Heaven on Earth: Home Away from Home.

I’m Triggered – Tebo Mpanza

Are there any areas of your life that feel a bit cluttered? Any place where, if even the smallest button is pressed, you’re triggered?

It’s been easy in this stay-at-home season to get caught up in the clutter. To feel as though we have to do everything and be everyone to make sure all bases are covered. But trying to fulfil all these areas in our own strength can not only build up our frustrations, but sap our strength in and devotion to Christ.

We need to chill and regain our zeal! Figure out how you can do that in your own life with this week’s podcast message from Ps Tebo Mpanza.

Back To Life – David Stoner

What are you battling with right now? What is happening in your life that is making it seem like there’s no way back?

Know that, through the love and mercy of Christ, there is always the hope and reality of resurrection. Whatever the illness of your circumstance, it’s not too late for you to come back to life. Listen in to Ps Dave Stoner’s message this week as he encourages us remember the hope we have in Christ.

Let the Saints Rise – Jo Willis

In all the tumult of our world, it’s so easy to lose sight of our first love. But what is our first love? Is it Jesus, or is it the church?

Listen to this week’s podcast with Ps Jo Willis as he explores our need to reprioritise our loves to further the kingdom of God. Let’s rise up as an effective church; an effective body, with our unique parts and gifts working together in unison.

Locked Out of Heaven – Gosia Denham

Do you know that God isn’t as far from you as life may make it seem? Do you ever get the sense that you can’t quite reach Him; there’s something stopping you approach him; that, in a way, you’re locked out of heaven?

Jesus wants you to come in. He wants you to draw near. And He’s given us the keys to open the door. Listen in to this week’s podcast as Ps Gosia Denham explores the keys to sharing space with Christ.

The Scattered Church – Joel Burden

It’s easy in the world’s current climate to feel displaced and distant from church. But although we are scattered, we have been called for such a time as this! God is using these circumstances to bring about a revival not just in His body, but of His body. He is moving us where He needs us to be.

Be encouraged this week with this message from Ps Joel Burden.

The Messy Middle – Louise Davies

Right now, we’re in The Messy Middle. We’re experiencing losses, a slowing down, a redirection of purpose and changes to our daily rhythm. It’s been confusing and difficult to adjust. Though even in these challenging times, there’s joy to be had! Listen to Ps Lou Davies today as she encourages us to reclaim our joy in the midst of this trying season.

Head Down, Eyes Up, Go – Mark Ritchie

In this Easter message, guest speaker Mark Ritchie encourages us in our ‘mess’ and points us to Christ and the power of the cross.

Speaking from Mark 16, he demonstrates how in the midst of the unknown, our default is to just keep our heads down and get on with things, but that through the promise of Christ’s life we can lift our eyes and receive His hope. In turn, this encourages us to go and share this hope with our world!

We pray this message fills you with the joy and peace of Christ!

Happy Easter!

 

 

 

Giant Slayers – Jo Willis

There’s an unexpected power in belonging. 

Your ability to belong is inextricably linked to your gifting being released and without it giants of intimidation will continue to threaten our future. But God has built a giant slayer into each one of us, uniquely gifting us to take down giants both personally and on behalf of others, and it happens as we are we are planted in the soil of community and flourish beside the stream of the Holy Spirit. Understand that there are stages to belonging; it takes something of us, and as we move through them, God transforms us to become giant slayers on behalf of a generation. 

Take A Knee: How To Stand Firm Without Standing At All – Jo Willis

Defiance in the right space can be a good thing. We often see defiance as being in a position of strength standing firm against the things that oppose us. And yet, Daniel’s defiance was found humbly on his knees in prayer. Take a knee and see the astounding ways in which God will move on your behalf.

The Meaning of Life – Ps Dave Gilpin

To have a life of meaning is the primary driver of human souls. To do this, tables must turn, saying goodbyes must happen, storm clouds are ushered and reinventions begun. That’s why many choose to attempt to live a life of happiness only to discover that on either side of moments of happiness lies deep discontent. The more meaningful your life is, the more fulfilled you’ll become.
