What the Gospel Isn't - Sunday January 19th

Join us at ourMorning Service: 10.30am or at ourEvening Service: 6.30pm, both at the Foyer Paroissial, St Sulpice....

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...

This Sunday we're going to see how the prophet Jeremiah was invited by God to encounter him in ways tha...

So why don't we just be less superficial? What is it about external appearance that exercises such a power of us? This Sunday we're going to see the dark side of external beauty, the mask of exter...

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...
