Leadership Lessons

New sermon series

Leadership lessons from Old Testament Legends

During the month of August, we will be studying a different Biblical character each week, and thinking about how we can apply the lessons learned from their life to help us be abundantly fruitful wherever God has placed us.  Leadership is not a position or title, it’s influence.  And we all have influence.  The goal of this series is to help us think about how we can increase our influence and maximise our impact in the circles we each travel in.   

New sermon series: The Voice

Jesus says in John 10:27 that “His sheep know His voice,” and yet sometimes it can be difficult to know how to recognise when God is speaking to us. 

This series will explore how we might discover the wonderful gift of being able to hear God’s voice in our lives and how we might be an encouragement to others in listening to God’s voice for them.

SatNav – Swimming Confidently Upstream

In a world of competing claims about what’s good, beautiful and true, Christianity could seem to be having a hard time. For many in the West, it’s just one way to live amongst a multitude of alternatives – many of which may seem more enticing, exciting, or even true.

Yet we often long to speak up wisely and winsomely as Christians – whether we’re a teacher discussing school policy in a staff meeting, a leader with anxious people in our team, or in a family with a convinced atheist.

This SatNav journey is an opportunity to strengthen our grasp of the good news of the gospel by exploring three questions: Is it true? Is it good? Does it work? As we deepen our confidence in the wonder of our faith in the face of opposition, we trust that God will help us be ever more fruitful as his ambassadors wherever he’s placed us day-by-day.

We’d love you to join the SatNav community for this journey which will be led by Tash & Simon Edwards, Tracy Cotterell and Russell Soden.

Rediscovering Joy – new sermon series post Easter

In a world where everyone is trying to find the secret of happiness, christianity offers something so much deeper, richer and fuller.  Christianity offers joy.  And joy, unlike happiness, is something that we can experience even when our external circumstances are not so pleasant.  When Paul writes his letter to the Philippians, he does so in the midst of great adversity and yet nearly every line of his letter overflows with joy.  And so, over the course of this series we are going to be exploring the nature of true joy and discovering for ourselves what it means to be a people filled with Joy.  

We look forward to having you join us.
