Abide in The Lord

Andy Elmes • March 22, 2020 • Andy Elmes

As we are instructed by Government to be socially distanced from each other during this time of dealing with Covid-19, Pastor Andy provides a clear message about guarding our hearts and coming into deeper relationship with God. Now is the time not to be distant from God but to reach into him, feast on his presence keeping our lives based on The Word rather than being filled with fear from the evil one, media etc. 2 Timothy 1:7 tells us "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind".

Long Haul Discipleship

Roddy Gillies • March 15, 2020 • Roddy Gillies

Practical teaching based on building principles, Ps Roddy encourages us to consider what are we building as a church, both personally and corporately. Seek God's Blueprint for your journey, get Planning Permission approved, build firm foundations and ensure you get a Completion Certificate signed off. Ensure the materials are durable, be missional and be in it for the long haul!

The Armour of God through Seasons

Chris Hoskins • March 8, 2020 • Chris Hoskins

During the storms of life we are to fight the good fight of faith, as the Apostle Paul did, and learn to trust God that He is with us and for us throughout. Prayer is not something we go to as a last resort but should be threaded throughout the process of "having put on" and "taking up" the armour of God.

Fight like a Christian

Sandy Hoskins • March 1, 2020 • Sandy Hoskins

God's precepts and principles are likened to the armour of a heavily-armed soldier, which we need to put into practice before opposition strikes. We need to be enveloped and restrained by the truth, guard our hearts and also be prepared to give an account of the hope that is within us. Who we are in the crisis is determined by who we are before the crisis, so preparation is key to fighting like a Christian.

The Armour of God

Chris Hoskins • February 23, 2020 • Chris Hoskins

In order to put on the armour of God, there are a number of prerequisites which the Apostle Paul describes throughout his letter to the Ephesians. We need to know who we are in Christ, how loved we are by God, that we should walk worthy of the Lord, and finally that we are to submit to one another. Our level of authority is dependent upon our level of submission, firstly to God and then to each other.

The Storms of Life

Sandy Hoskins • February 16, 2020 • Sandy Hoskins

We all experience storms in life, which are caused by a number of different factors, which include the devil, circumstances, other people, our own choices and the words we speak. Storms can distract us from the purposes of God and at times cause us to isolate ourselves. We need to keep our eyes on Jesus throughout - He will never fail us!

Psalm 133 details the goodness and pleasantness which unity brings into the church. The Psalmist makes 2 major comparisons, comparing unity to the flow of the anointing and also to the dew on Mt Hermon which nourishes and waters other regions. We are called, as followers of Jesus to keep and guard this unity, in order to experience all God's blessing in our own lives and in the lives of others.

It Shall Come To Pass

Chris Hoskins • January 26, 2020 • Chris Hoskins

Looking at the life of Joseph, the dreams or visions which God places in our hearts will be fulfilled as long as we diligently obey God's Word and leading.

Living with a Godly Vision

Steve Carey • January 19, 2020 • Steve Carey

God wants us to have a personal vision for our own lives; a vision bigger than ourselves and based on tomorrow and not today. As we do so, we will serve the purposes of God and flourish within each season!

Ingredients for the Anointed life

Chris & Sandy Hoskins • January 5, 2020 • Chris & Sandy Hoskins

In order to attract the anointing in our lives, we, as Christians have need of the five ingredients as represented in the anointing oil used to anoint kings and priests: meekness, uprightness, humility, inner cleansing and continuous infilling of the Holy Spirit.

Advent, from Preparation to Dedication

Chris Hoskins • December 15, 2019 • Chris Hoskins

A People Prepared

Sandy Hoskins • December 8, 2019 • Sandy Hoskins

We look at an aspect of this period of advent - ie preparation, while looking at the life of John the Baptist and his parents Zacharias and Elizabeth. This season of preparation can be summed up in one word - "BELIEVE".

The Season of Waiting

Chris Hoskins • December 1, 2019 • Chris Hoskins

Advent - the antidote for an over-commercialised Christmas, is a time of preparation and waiting and is an opportunity for us to get a spiritual perspective amidst festivity and fun.
