Don't Neglect the Gift
August 22, 2021 • Helen Edwards • 1 Timothy 4:14
In 1 Timothy 4:14, Paul instructs Timothy not to neglect his gift. Whether it's through fear, discouragement or ignorance, we need to be aware of the impact that neglecting our gift can have on others not just us. He has given us both natural and supernatural gifts to be used for His glory. But it's when we know the gift giver that we value the gift all the more. This morning's message encourages us to "dust off" the gifts God has given, to use them wisely and to persevere so that we finish the race strong.
Sharing Your Faith
August 8, 2021 • Adrian Porter • 1 Timothy 2
Sharing our faith is sharing our story and His story where they collided in you and I accepting Jesus as our Lord and Saviour... But this great message is not just for us! In this week's preach, we look at how we can effectively share this message as encouraged to do so in 1 Tim 2!
Solving the Mystery
August 15, 2021 • Thabani Nyoni • 1 Timothy 3:9
Holding the mystery of the faith is not for the esoteric (not only for the elders, bishops or deacons), it is for us all. This mystery was solved 2,000 years ago. Listen to the message as we consider what the Bible says on the mystery solved!
Keeping the faith
August 1, 2021 • Matt Rees • 1 Timothy 1
Matt Rees opens this new series for us as we look at 1 Timothy starting with chapter 1. Matt looks at who Timothy was and what we can learn from his calling and ministry. This first week looks at Keeping the Faith as we are in such challenging times looking at Purity, a Clear Conscience and a Solid Faith! A very practical and equipping message for the church today!

In this message 'First Breath', we explore John 3 as Jesus meets Nicodemus and tells him (and us): "You must be born again!". The first breath of our spirit into life is when we are born again to begin a new life as a Christ follower. Some great testimonies from Marg and Jude of their stories of being born again.

We sing the great hymn: Amazing Grace, but this week we see how Grace came first! And that amazing grace gives us the power to live for Jesus in a very weary and broken world. Through the story of the prodigal son, we will explore how grace comes first in our relationship between God and you and then between you and others.

You wouldn’t think that anyone could improve on the masterpiece of michelangelo’s Sistine chapel painting. But Maybe me and a spray can could make it better? What do you think? God’s greatest masterpiece in all creation I think was marriage and family! The marriage represents our relationship with Jesus as we are the bride of Christ what an awesome picture of that union. and family is a wonderful picture of our God loves and cares for his children. But society believes it can do better and has take a spraycan to the masterpiece that is Marriage and the family. But in the end it’s just vandalism. This week we look at key ways that God can be first in the family as family is first in Gods plan. First with parents, children and the lost who can be adopted into Gods family.

In life we can find that our time and energies can get swallowed up in the busyness of life. Before you know, we have filled our life with Netflix and Facebook, hobbies and projects but have neglected the things that really matter. Jesus said "seek first the Kingdom of God, and all these things will be added to you". Over the next 6 months, we want to look at how we can intentionally put God first in our lives again starting with our First Love! Today's message looks at how wide, how deep, how long and how high God's love is for us and as a result how we can respond in our lives to that love.

The walls were finished and the externals looked great in Jerusalem. Now God was working on the internals as the people came before God in response to the reading of His word. They confessed and repented and moved into worship!!! This sunday we look at how repentance leads us into times of refreshment as we are free from guilt and sin to encounter Jesus!!
