Current sermon series

Morning Series

Living by faith

In this series in Matthew’s gospel we follow Jesus’ disciples on their journey as they have their eyes
opened to see who Jesus is and what he came to do and begin to put their trust in him. On the
way we meet some people with surprising faith and others blind to their unbelief. We hope the
series will help us all grow in our faith in Jesus.

Evening series

Keeping the faith

2 Timothy was written by the apostle Paul towards the end of his life out of concern for the
churches during a time of persecution under Emperor Nero. He exhorts Timothy to guard the
gospel, to continue in it, to keep on preaching it and to be willing to suffer for it. It’s a helpful
encouragement for us today to stay focused on the gospel in the face of many distractions and
challenges in life.

The Reformation

This four-part series will help us reflect on and celebrate the 500th anniversary of the
Reformation – a vital period of church history where the gospel was defended, upheld and
proclaimed. The series will start on September 17th in the morning service with a summary and
introduction followed by a three-part evening series in October that will dig a bit deeper

Hot topics

These three topics are designed to help us see what the Bible says about our relationship with
the world, our struggles in the world and our identity in Christ.


In the rush up to Christmas we will be slowing down to take a closer look at Matthew 2 in both morning and evening services to reflect on the birth of Christ and what true worship really is.
