What Does The Worshipping Church Look Like?
1 Peter 2
What happens when a lot of living sacrifices come together? This passage explains; we form the temple of God and serve as priests of God, resulting in others seeing the goodness of God. This has huge implications for how we each approach Sunday mornings.

Family On A Mission
Colossians 4:7-18
As we finish Paul's letter to the Colossian church, we see far more than just the end credits! The tone of Paul's final greetings and instructions is a tone that has been present throughout the whole letter: it is a tone of both family and mission. However, these two values are not in tension as many may imagine, but feed each other necessarily. Jonny encourages us to set the same tone at Churchcentral.

Tensions In Evangelism
Colossians 4:2-6
We know evangelism is good and right, but so often we don't feel it. In this talk, we seek to get our thinking right about three tensions in evangelism, as we see what Paul calls the Colossians to do with this glorious gospel.

Children, parents, antelopes & leopards!
Colossians 3:20-21
Nothing reveals our need for grace like the relationship between children and their parents. We all get this wrong at times, but Paul encourages us not to give up in trying to live in the good of God’s perfect plan for family life.

Wives Submit To Your Husbands
Colossians 3:18-19
What is this? The 1950s! Who would take such an instruction seriously today? Well, Jonny and Jemma Mellor would be two such examples! They talk through how they’ve tried to live out God’s instructions in this area and how, although they’ve both struggled with this kind of teaching in different ways, they’ve discovered God’s wisdom as they’ve looked to faithfully live out leadership and submission in their marriage.

All We Need Is Jesus
Colossians 2:16-23
The letter to the Colossians was written in response to a problem: there were other voices speaking into the church leading them away from the gospel. These voices had one overriding message- Jesus isn't enough. He's not enough to make you happy. Not enough to make you wise and not enough to make you holy. This whole letter is a response to this and for the first time, in today's passage. Paul hits these voices head on.

Who are you?

The desire for identity never goes away. This talk will both help you work out where you’re currently finding your identity and also challenge you not to settle for defining yourself in really limited, finite ways.

Don't Be Deluded!
Colossians 1:24-2:5
Believing things that aren’t true has real implications in your life. That’s why Paul longs for the Colossians not to be deluded! We explore two themes that even the most fruitful and faithful Christians can be off-track on and hear God, through Paul, calling us back to clarity and confidence.

Three Things To Know About The Gospel
Colossians 1:1-14
If we were starting a letter to a group of people we'd never met before, we might like to kick things off with some pleasantries and a warm hello. Not so Paul! The introduction to his letter to the Colossian church powerfully lays out the gospel that has come to this church and to all Christian ever since. Jonny picks out 3 things that Paul highlights about this amazing gospel.
