In prayer, we discover more deeply who God is, who we are, and how God changes us. But what exactly is prayer? And how do we integrate prayer into our everyday lives?

In 1 Thessalonians 3:9-13 we examine the example of the Apostle Paul’s prayer for his friends and what it means for us.

We live in a world where authentic friendship and community seem hard to find, and even harder to maintain. How can we cultivate friendships that are trustworthy and true? And what keeps them from becoming transient or even toxic?

In 1 Thessalonians 3:1-9 we see how faith transforms our idea of friendship and our very lives in the process.

In a restless and conflicted world, how can we cultivate an authentic and healthy spiritual life? How does the good news about Jesus bring life to every area of life?

We begin a new series by looking at 1 Thessalonians 1:1-4 exploring how the gospel brings about faith, love and hope.

First Things: A Faithful Presence | Titus 3:1-8


Does it really matter where Christians live, work and gather? What difference does it make?

In Titus 3:1-8 we explore why the presence of the church matters, why your presence matters, and what priorities we must embrace to not only bring good news to our neighbours but experience personal transformation along the way.

First Things: Why Community Matters | Hebrews 10:14-25


We all long for friendship and community, and yet there is a rise in individualism and isolation within our culture. In what way does Jesus not only transform our idea of community, but also the very core of our own lives? 

First Things: Knowing & Loving Jesus | John 21:15-22


With a new year comes new opportunities– and new obstacles. How we face them all is a matter of priorities. What are some of the priorities of the Christian life and how can they be practised?

We begin the first few weeks of 2019 by exploring key passages in the New Testament on what it means to be a follower of Jesus, seeking the renewal of our city.

Your Hope Restored | Isaiah 40:1-5; 27-31

Your Hope Restored.001.jpeg

As we look to the year ahead, what reason do we have to hope? In the face of pain in our own worlds and the world around us, how do we hold onto the hope that the gospel offers us?

As we end our year and look to the one to come, we see how God responds to the questions we hold within, and calls us to hope in Him alone.
