He moulds our lives, and all of history like a potter mou...

The Good Life You're Looking For - Sunday May 12th

When someone describes themself as 'a person of faith' it implies that other people aren't 'people of faith.'

Coming Home... and Change of Venue! Sunday March 3rd

The prophet Jeremiah warned that ancient Judah would be destroyed because of her worship of idols. And she was. You might think that has nothing to do with us in the 21st Century - and yet we constantly look to things other than God to give us 'the good life', and those things we look to have this tendancy to consume us.
