The Cost of Doing the Right Thing

587BC was a time of national crisis for the Jewish people generally and the inhabitants of Jerusalem in particular. But as is often the case, a time of national crisis becomes a moment of individual personal crisis. So it was in Jerusalem for three men - a prophet, a king and a eunuch. All three faced the same fears. Two chose to do the right thing. The third failed. Why? ...

Rejecting and Embracing the Word of God - Sunday Nov 3rd

One approach to the Bible, or its teaching, is that you pick and choose the bits you like, and discard the bits you don't. If that's your approach - deliberately or subconsciously - you're not the first. In fact, it started with the first recorded writing of part of the Bible - the book of Jeremiah. The question is, what is it about the authority of the Bible in our lives...

So why don't we just be less superficial? What is it about external appearance that exercises such a power of us?

Home Coming - Sunday September 29th

What does it mean to 'come home'? Where, or in what situation, do you think, this is what I was made for? And what happens if, after a while, that place, or that thing, loses its shine? Does that mean there isn't somewhere that's 'home', or you just haven't found it? This Sunday we will look at how the prophet Jeremiah foretold that the Jewish exiles would return home, bu...

Serving the City - Sunday 22nd September

Imagine living in a city that was opposed to everything you held dear, where the authorities wanted you to conform to their way of thinking and seeing the world, and where you were, in every sense, a foreigner. What would your attitude to the people of that city be? That was the situation that the Jewish exiles living in Babylon in Jeremiah's day faced. This Sunday we wil...

Turning the World Upside Down

There was a time when the Christian message was revolutionary - when, becuase it challenged the gods of the day, it incited riots. When we consider what it teaches, it has lost none of its revolutionary power - not least in its critique of religion. Join us this Sunday as we begin a new series: Upside Down World. Our Morning Service is at 10:30am, our Evening Service at ...
