Man-made vs God-made – Lois Willis

As a church, we are on a quest to ask God, “what does the church that you want to build look like?”

In this week’s message, Ps Lois Willis explores the idea that perhaps, up until now, we’ve been stuck in man-made living. But now God has led us, like Jacob, to an altar where we can lay down our old ways and move our lives and the church toward God-made living.

Heaven on Earth: A Refuge on the Rock of Ages – Jo Willis

Do you know God as your safety and your refuge? Like Jacob, are you able to find your peace, safety and rest in Him, the Rock of Ages?

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.

What’s in a Name? – Lois Willis

Do you know who God says you are? Do you know that you are loved, chosen, wanted, God’s handiwork? Do you know of the life-changing and empowering implications that rooting your identity in Christ entails on your life?

Take stock this week of how you view yourself – or how the world views you – and compare it to how God views you. His opinion of us is infinitely better than anyone else’s. Join Ps Lois Willis as she explores our identity in Christ in this week’s message, ‘What’s in a Name?’

Living Life Ordained – Simon Taylor

It’s time to break off the shackles and the lies of the enemy and live our lives as we truly are: ordained! Each of us are called by God to reveal His goodness and work out His will upon the earth. Nothing and no one can stop us when we’re in the will of God! But how do we outwork such a high calling on our lives?

Join Ps Simon Taylor in this week’s podcast as he delves into the hows and whys of living life ordained.

Fear Not – Phil Pringle

If anything is clear in times of difficulty and upheaval – whether in our personal or corporate lives – it’s that God is far closer than we will ever know! He is an ever-present help in times of trouble, and we have nothing to fear.

On Father’s Day, we are encouraged to hear from the father of our movement, Ps Phil Pringle. Listen in as he passes on the encouragement of our Father in heaven: “Fear not!”

Fundamental Facts – Tebo Mpanza

It’s time to go back to basics. What makes our lives worth living? How can we have total trust in God? What fears; what insecurities do we need to let go of? 

It’s no longer about performance. Let’s flip our perspective.

Tune into this week’s podcast message as Ps Tebo Mpanza unpacks the fundamental facts of the Christian life.

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.

Let’s Do This Again – Chris Denham

This is an unprecedented season for us all.  In unprecedented moments, God can do unprecedented things. Today’s sermon emphasises the importance of remembering God’s work in our lives, it is important to know that God is more than able to deliver us from this valley again and again. It’s easier to step out in faith when we see God move over and over again. God is calling out to you today to go again. Let’s do this, again.

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!

Who lives in a House like this? – Chris Denham

Courageous Faith – Jo Willis

The glory days are something we so often look at as something that’s behind us, but more than ever before we believe that it’s something God is leading us into. 

The way we access them? Courageous faith. And one of the most surprising people to make it into the Hebrews 11 ‘Hall of Faith’ was Samson. This message attempts to unravel the mystery as to why

Conference Sunday with Sarah Percy

After an amazing night of the Holy Spirit bringing revival in Hope City York, with many receiving words and healings from God, Sarah Percy finishes with a short message on making way for the Holy Spirit in our lives.

Confident Faith – Georgie Kelsey

God wants to tell you how valued you are.

You would think that we are living in a time where people know their  worth but the reality of this generation is that people don’t know what real confidence is.

We live in a ‘value crisis generation’, which makes it difficult to know how much God love’s us. As a new creation a journey of allowing God to change, form and transition you from your previous mindset brings Confident Faith because God way is always better.

Ps Georgie encourages that as believers, we are to lift our heads and hearts to walk out as people who carry a Confident Faith, knowing that God wants us to be completely set free.

Legacy Builders – Jo Willis

So much of what we live in tomorrow is based on what we are building today. 

The legacy we leave in the future has the ability to break open areas in our world not just for the kingdom of heaven but for others to follow in as well but the question we have to ask ourselves before we get there we have to ask ourselves one question. What are we building?

Locked Out Of Heaven – Gosia Denham

Preached live at Hope City Church in York.

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. 

Shut The Door – Chris Denham

It starts with shutting the door and seeking God, the only thing that is meant to overwhelm us is the presence of God. Join us live at Hope City York as we kick off 2020 with a powerful message from Ps Chris Denham. This is a message to propel you into everything God has for you this year through seeking and living for the one God

You’ve Got the Wrong Address – Jo Willis

Ever been on autopilot and gone back an old address? 

In life that can often happen too; we can move back into our old habits, ways of thinking or lifestyles, but God has called us to occupy a new place. This new place is influential and significant, but in order to reside here we have to say goodbye to the old address and utilise the keys to our new location. 

Now it Gets Personal Part 2 – Vanessa Hoyes

It is imperative to know what is on the other side of your digging…it is the wall of breakthrough. 

Ps Vanessa gives us 7 keys to breakthrough.  The act of reflection on all areas on ones life can tell you how closer you are to your breakthrough. 

The Holy Spirit will help you to go into open and uncomfortable places, we are called to be in these places often because no one else is willing to go but there is a shift of what God is doing! God is going to go beyond your imagination.

It’s About You And It’s Not Just About You!

Which Jesus? – Chris Denham

Intervention Jesus is definitely more Hollywood, but sleeping Jesus is far more powerful. Which Jesus are you chasing after? A message from Pastor Chris Denham on staying calm in the storms of life, preached live at Hope City Church in York (except for the first 60 seconds which are from Leeds).

Now It Gets Personal Part 1- Vanessa Hoyes

Ps Vanessa  introduces a different perspective of how we are used by God. She uses the example of a well to explain that every individual stands as a well in there community and before there is breakthrough of water, there is some digging to be done. 

Any time the people of God dig wells, people life flourish. 

This message will help you explore the questions what wells do you need to dig up in order for you to be effective in your community?

What does it mean to access living water not just for you but for the world around you? 

Getting Unstuck – Ryan Smith

Ps Ryan Smith teaches 4 mature responses to failure. As believers it is important for us to understand the importance of having discernment to know when it is time for a new beginning or an ending to something. 

We all have an individual dialogue which means your relationship with God, yourself and others changes overtime, as you journey in Christ. 

Failure – unwillingness to learn from past mistakes and not remain open to what God has for your in the future. God doesn’t define you by your mistakes, you are defined by the deep work of your transformation He does in you and through you because of your mistakes.
