Believing For A Better City
Hebrews 13:11-16
How do we live now in light of the hope of a new heaven and earth? Failure to consider this crucial question deprives us of one of the main motivations provided by the New Testament for persevering through difficult times.

Community Matters
Hebrews 13:1-9
After the lofty heights of the previous 12 chapters, Hebrews 13 appears to be an anti-climax on first reading. However, as we dig beneath the surface, we catch a glimpse of a radical new kind of community, unlike anything else the world has ever seen.

It's Time To Stand And Fight
2 Samuel 23:9-10
The Christian life is a battle and we have a magnificent champion who is standing in the "barley fields" of our lives, fighting our battles. Will we stand with him?

Motivations For Holiness
Hebrews 12:14-29
The call to "live a holy life" sounds like the small print of the Christian 'deal', the rubbish bit we nod along with but struggle to find motivation for. What does holiness look like? And why should we care? Does it even matter? Listen in.

Persevering In Faith
Hebrews 12:1-13
There’s arguably never been a society with a lower pain threshold than ours. In today’s passage we learn the secret of persevering in faith when everything in us just wants to give up.

Living With A Different Story
Hebrews 11:13-40
The 11th chapter of Hebrews is a challenge to what faith really looks like. It’s uncomfortable reading but it’s full of encouragements to help us. Faith means following God’s script for life no matter what the cost but this chapter shows us it’s worth it.

What Should We Do With Samson?
Judges 13
2017 has been a year of discredited heroes. Harvey Weinstein. Kevin Spacey. Robinho. Samson seems like an ancient equivalent- his achievements cancelled out by some serious moral flaws. If there was a statue of Samson in your city, would you campaign to have it torn down? If not, what can we learn from such a compromised hero?

How To Avoid Infighting
Judges 9
In the story of Abimelech, we see a new enemy arise to challenge Israel. That enemy is Israel! By the end of Judges, infighting will have done much more damage to the people of God than external oppressors. How can we make sure that we avoid repeating this scenario in the church today?

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.

Fight For Freedom!
Judges 6
As Christians we know Jesus has set us free! Yet we all find it hard to live in that freedom day to day. Why is that? How can I break free? The story of the Israelites - and our first glimpse of Gideon - in Judges 6 provide the answers.

Why Do We Need A Rescuer?
Judges 3:7-11
The first judge of ‘The Judges’ is Othniel. In this short synopsis of his career, we see a template of all that is to come, but also we are confronted with a story of sin, slavery and deliverance that summarises the universal Christian message, and a picture of what ‘sin’ actually is that shows why God thinks it is such a big deal.

Lest We Forget
Judges 1-2
This talk shows the crucial importance of remembering what God has done… and living consistently. As we see in the story of Judges, the consequences of forgetfulness are simply disastrous!
