The Story of Noah

Andrew Perriman
Sunday 10 June 2018
Our guest speaker, theologian Andrew Perriman, opened our new series on ‘Risk-Takers’ by taking us deep into Genesis, the goodness of Creation, but the distortions of the Fall, and how God, grieved by the violence and wickedness of humans, called Noah to take a risk, build a boat (complete with ‘flood-lights’!), called him to be His agent for rescuing life human and animal on earth. Andrew unpacked how ancient Israel, in re-telling this judgment story, interpreted it differently than the surrounding polytheistic cultures with their fickle, soap-opera deities; the one true God is merciful, the God of a new creation, a covenant sign, a rainbow, to promise ‘never again’... and this God, then, and later, in a ‘new covenant’ of grace, through Jesus, in being willing to use imperfect people...like Moses, like us... is the real ‘Risk-Taker’ hero of the story!
Risk takers for God

Risk takers for God

As we read the Bible story, we encounter people willing to put at risk all that they hold dear to respond to the call of God and to join him in the unfolding of his redemption story. Whether behind the scenes or in the limelight, these risk-takers have chosen a life that involves both challenges beyond their natural ability, lives of great sacrifice, as well as lives of deep meaning—the deepest, most ultimate adventure! Starting now, and throughout the summer, we will explore together the lives of people like you and me who accepted God's challenge and, by God's grace, made a difference in the unfolding story of the coming of the Kingdom of God.

When Jesus arrives late

Peter de Bos
Sunday 13 May 2018
This Sunday we will look at the story of Lazarus from John 11:1-46, “When Jesus arrives late”. Consider how you would have felt to be Lazarus’ sister or one of his friends, including Jesus. This isn’t simply a story in a book, but is a true story of real people who dealt with death and grief, just as you and I do. 
 
Called to be the community of God

Called to be the community of God

As we look into the book of 1 Peter in this sermon series, we see that God desires for us as his people to live in community. We will discover that the community of God is called to be a community of hope, of grace, of servants and of humble warriors. Ultimately, we rejoice in the fact that God in the midst of his community is the enabling factor in becoming what we are called to be.

Shepherds and undershepherds

Caroline Zwart-Candelaria
Sunday 06 May 2018
Continuing in the series Called to be God's Community, we are encouraged by Peter to view our care for other believers in the same way a shepherd sees his care for his sheep. Whether you're an elder in a church or a Small Group leader or a Sunday School teacher - there are many lessons we can learn by looking at the Good Shepherd. Peter tells the shepherds to lead joyfully, the sheep to follow willingly and for all the clothe themselves with humility towards each other.

Following Jesus to the Cross

William Wade
Tuesday 27 March 2018
As we consider Jesus' journey to the cross this week, we are challenged with the question, 'Are we following Jesus to the cross?' If we are, then that means we are laying down our lives for him and making sure we do not get caught up in 'lukewarm' Christianity.
