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!

Giving - Jesus is Lord of All

William Wade
Sunday 11 March 2018
When we say Jesus is Lord, we make an outstanding statement. When we say that, we include everything in our lives; our relationships, our dreams, our career... and our bank account. With the story of the rich young ruler, we see that Jesus is not seeker-sensitive when it comes to calling for obedience - even when it comes to our money.

Streams of Living Water

This series takes a look at the historic traditions found within the Christian Church. Jesus is the source of each of these great traditions of Christian experience:  Contemplative (the prayer-filled life); Holiness (the virtuous life); Charismatic (the Spirit-empowered life); Social Justice (the compassionate life), Evangelical (the Word-centered life) and Incarnational (the sacramental life). Come with us over these next six weeks as we delve into each of these rich expressions of the Christian faith.

Tradition of social justice: the compassionate life

Sarah Hamel-Brown
Sunday 25 February 2018
This week we explore the tradition of social justice: the compassionate life. As human beings we are wired to care, but in our brokenness we can be misguided or even damaged to a point of not caring even hating. Inundated with "good causes" its hard to sometimes focus on the good news and simply be present and ready as pilgrims through this journey of faith and life!

The Contemplative Tradition:  Discovering the Prayer-Filled Life
 
We all hunger for a prayer-filled life, for a richer, fuller and deeper experience of the loving presence of God.  It is the contemplative stream of the Christian faith
that can show us the way into just such a life of intimacy and loving attention to God.  Come join us as we seek to better understand and experience the how the contemplative practice of prayer can be integrated into our daily lives.

Repentance and Revival

William Wade
Sunday 14 January 2018
As we begin our week of prayer as a church, we start by looking at the role of repentance, and how this links in with revival. When Solomon dedicated the Temple in 2 Chronicles, God had some words of blessing and warning to him. Yet in all of this, he promised to revive the nation, even if they wandered away from him - providing there was repentance. This message looks at the pivotal verse of 2 Chronicles 7:14

An Awe Filled Christmas

An Awe Filled Christmas

Christmas is a time of year which means many things to many people. At Crossroads, it means that God so loved the world that he gave us his Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life. This Christmas, our theme is about the awe, wonder, glory and power of God. We are trusting that it will truly be an 'Awe-Filled Christmas'.

You might send or receive Christmas cards this year with angels, wise men and stars on them; but you won't receive a card with King Herod on it. This Christmas message compares the difference between the wise men and Herod, and asks the question - who do you identify with most?

Glory in a Manger

Maurice Lubbers
Sunday 10 December 2017
At Christmas we see God's glory displayed in the face of Christ. In order to understand how we can experience God's glory not just at Christmas, but all year long, we look at the story of the shepherds to find out how and where God has chosen to meet with us.

An Awe Filled Name

William Wade
Sunday 03 December 2017
There is something about the name of Jesus.
Here, Gabriel's message to Mary unveils the mission of Jesus to the
world: to save people from sin and from hell. The challenge for us as a church is to let people know, especially in this season of Christmas, about our salvation found in Jesus alone.
