Child Abuse

Children are precious, and deserve to be loved and protected. Unfortunately, that’s not always how children are treated. It has been huge news in the last several years about abuse of children and young people. And some of the horrific stories have come from the church. In this message we talk about that. We raise the level of conversation about child abuse, and about the safety and protection of children in our church and in our homes.  This message is…

Imagine Heaven – The Highlight of Heaven

Imagine Heaven – The Highlight of Heaven A common, beautiful thread weaving many stories of near death experiences together is that of the overwhelming love they felt in the presence of Jesus, the being of light.

Here are the video links from this week: The first snippet from Dr…

Imagine Heaven – The Beauty of Heaven

Imagine Heaven – Relationships in Heaven

Imagine Heaven – Relationships in Heaven When I die, will I still be myself? Will I have a body or will I be some kind of angel or spirit? Will I see the people I know and love and will we recognise each other? These are some of the most fundamental questions of the heart and soul in each person, and the Bible has something to say about each of them! Here are the video links from this week of…

Imagine Heaven – Evidence for the Afterlife

Imagine Heaven – Evidence for the Afterlife Everybody wonders—is there a God? Is heaven real and if so, does heaven have a place for me? It’s a human question because there’s a human longing to know—what happens when I die? How you think about Heaven affects everything in your life.
