The Power of Weakness – Rob Nicholls

The Power of Weakness - Rob Nicholls

Times of weakness can be hard, gruelling, galling, humiliating – yet Paul says in 2 Cor 12 “When I am weak, I am strong”. What’s going on there that reshaped the way he looked at what was, in many cases, a life of trial and hardship? Our guest speaker Rob Nicholls opens the word with […]

The Christians Self Image? The Image of God! – Peter Abetz

The Christians Self Image? The Image of God! - Peter Abetz

We hear so much about “self esteem” these days.  But is the term self esteem a Christian concept?  For Christians, the term “self image” is perhaps a better word.

Who are you, and what are you doing here? – Frank van den Bos

Who are you, and what are you doing here? - Frank van den Bos

As we revisit the story of Jonah this week again, we are once again confronted with a very confusing story.  We would expect that with the rescue of Jonah and the repentance of the Nineties, the sort would finish on a triumphant note – God wins, and the peasants rejoice!  But that’s not happening here […]

Are you ready to do battle for the Lord in 2017? – Peter Abetz

Are you ready to do battle for the Lord in 2017? - Peter Abetz

Every believer is involved in a spiritual battle.  The enemy is demonic, powerful, wicked and cunning – he has even convinced some that he does not exist! We are called to take our stand against the devil’s schemes, and we can stand against them if we put on the full armour of God, and then […]

Open Our Eyes – Alex Thompson

Strength in Weakness – Brendan Meyerink

Strength in Weakness - Brendan Meyerink

Rather than trying to fight against our weaknesses, we can embrace them so that Jesus’ grace and power can be displayed in us. In this passes Paul boasts, but not about how impressive he is, instead he boasts about his weaknesses. Paul has learnt that when he is weak then he is strong. This sermon […]

The King’s Passion – Tony van Drimmelin

The King's Passion - Tony van Drimmelin

The Last Supper closed as a disappointment for Jesus (v.38).  What happens next under the cover of darkness is the onset of his physical as well as his spiritual suffering.  At one level, we see Jesus’ isolation from his disciples, they fall asleep!  At another level, we see Jesus experience incredible agony in obedience to […]
