New Sermon Series-Sermon on the Mount

New Sermon Series-Sermon on the Mount

Our new sermon series on the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 5-7. These chapters are often thought of as containing the essence of Jesus’ teaching. People who are not Christians will sometimes refer to Jesus as a great teacher, thinking about his emphasis on mercy, love, peace and turning the other cheek. But how many have actually read the Sermon on the Mount and heard the call to “the narrow road that leads to life” (Mt 7:14)? What does he mean about building your house on rock? Or storing up treasures in heaven? These are challenging chapters indeed. This will be a great series for anyone thinking about Christianity.

Sunday February 10th we commenced a new five week series called "Essentials for Life".

You might describe these essentials with words like belonging, growing, serving, reaching out and loving. They could also be described with words like connectedness or membership, maturity, ministry, mission and worship.

 This series will lay an important foundation for the rest of the year. It will remind you of why we are church and what really matters. We strongly encourage you to attend or listen to the sermons of each of the five Sundays. We think you will find it refreshing, challenging and encouraging.

100th Armistice Day Prayer and Reflection

100th Armistice Day Prayer and Reflection

From Peter MacPherson, our Senior Minister

This Sunday marks the centenary of the end of World War 1.  The Armistice was signed at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918 thus bringing hostilities to an end. Historians estimate that 15-20 million people had died because of the war. The scale of death is beyond comprehension.

We rightly pause to mark this centenary in 2018. It’s a moment to give thanks but also a moment to reflect. Sadly the last 100 years suggest that humans continue to find it impossible to live at peace with one another.

You might find it helpful to pray the following prayer:
