The Power of Weakness
Judges 7
Sometimes you’ll never know God’s all you need until he’s all you have. What we learn from the example of Gideon is that our weakness can often be our greatest advantage.

Wrestling With God | West Site
1 Corinthians 12
If you wrestle with issues relating to God you are probably on the right track to getting to grips with truth. So how can we wrestle with God for all of the gifts he promises? Why is the example of a mustard seed used to describe the Kingdom of God and how can these ideas enable us to begin to be fruitful?

Easter Sunday
2 Timothy 2:8

Devotion & Multiplication
Acts 13:1-3

Finding Your Place In The Body Of Christ
1 Corinthians 12:4-14
Jesus gave up his body willingly because he knew God had a plan, to give him a new body that would continue his ministry on earth. That’s us, the church of Jesus; the Body of Christ. It’s important that we find our place in the body through getting to know the Holy Spirit, discovering our gifts, and playing our part.

Vision in a Time of Uncertainty
Ephesians 3:14-21
In these verses Paul is praying for the churches in Ephesus and the wider region. The social and cultural issues Jesus' followers were living in were not that dissimilar to the ones we face today. What was Paul's passion and prayer for the church and how it should live and what can we learn for the 21st Century?

Loving the Whole City
Acts 10
Birmingham is one of the most diverse communities in the UK but what does it mean to love the whole city - especially when there are so many cultural and social differences? In Acts Chapter 10, the Holy Spirit shows Peter how the gospel overcomes barriers and takes Peter out of his comfort zone. We need to do the same and the Holy Spirit will help us as we do so.
