Annual Review - 1 Corinthians
Charlie Kang • December 15, 2019
As you look back at 2019, do you see Jesus in both the blessings & hardships? Finishing our series with the final chapter of 1 Corinthians, Ps Charlie reminds us that if we don't find Jesus in both the highs & lows, we're limiting our hope, but if we attach hope to Jesus we never become hopeless!
God With Us
Charlie Kang • December 8, 2019
Christmas cards make the nativity scene look so perfect and beautiful but what about the smell and mess? In this short Christmas message, Ps Charlie speaks about how God comes into the midst of our chaos and mess to bring order and peace so that we can always have a hope & a future.
What True Love Is - 1 Corinthians
Charlie Kang • November 17, 2019
Ps Charlie looks at what 1 Corinthians 13 can teach us about what loving well really is. If we are loved well, we will also love well - the perfection of God's love is available to us now, through Jesus Christ - once we open our hearts to receive, we can love others out of that.
The Family is Growing
Charlie Kang • November 10, 2019
Ps Charlie shares where we have been as a church, where we are currently and announces the forthcoming addition to our family. Please note the following correction to the spoken information - It was in January 2017 (not 2014) that Ps Charlie became the Congregational Pastoral Pastor & Ps Lisa the Associate Congregational Pastor.
Global Sunday - Denying your Culture
Hands at Work • November 3, 2019
On Global Sunday we were privileged to have Caleb & Becci join us from Hands at Work as we were challenged to think about the loveless in our community and how our culture can interfere with our heart for God - do we see the poor and vulnerable, and if we do see them, do we act?
Be Free, Stay Free, Live Free!
Charlie Kang • October 20, 2019
We all have a desire to be free, but do we know what we want to be free from? Simply following our desires hasn't led to us being free, in fact we often feel more trapped through having to live with the consequences of our actions. But the gospel news is that we can't bring freedom & happiness to ourselves - only Jesus can do that - He doesn't want us to try harder but come alive to a continuous relationship with our Creator God.
Vision Sunday - Stay in Your Lane
Charlie Kang • October 13, 2019
What does it look like to stay in your lane, to be fruitful, full of the Holy Spirit in the season that you're in right now? On Vision Sunday, Ps Charlie reminds us to keep it simple - start walking in the Spirit & then keep in step with the Spirit, as the Spirit causes the fruit of the Spirit to be grown in us regardless of the season we're going through.
Discipleship, Encouragement, Discipline - 1 Corinthians - Week 3
Charlie Kang • September 29, 2019
Continuing our journey through 1 Corinthians, going through every chapter, even the less comfortable ones! What do we do as a church when someone claims to be living for God but there is repeated unrepentant sin in their lives? We all need to be willing to be discipled - do we have people in our lives who tell us what we don't want to hear, who are looking out for our blind spots, who remind us who we are in Jesus?
Division over Leadership - 1 Corinthians - Week 2
Lisa Adjei • September 22, 2019
Continuing our 1 Corinthians series, Ps Lisa looks at what we can learn from Paul's response to the divisions over leadership in the Corinthian church; encouraging us to set & build our lives on the foundation of God's Word, to make Jesus our first and foremost pursuit & to desire the hidden place in God.
Gospel Driven Culture - 1 Corinthians - Week 1
Charlie Kang • September 15, 2019
Do we get more revelation straight from the Word of God or via podcasts or social media? In this series on 1 Corinthians the aim is to read the Word together & mature as we meditate on it. Ps Charlie introduces the book reminding us that we are called to live differently as we are set apart for a purpose - if so much of the world is in us, how can we bring about change? The gospel is life and death, we need to get serious about knowing the Word of God & bring it into the centre of our lives.
