Jesus feeds 5000

When Jesus fed 5000+ people on the beach one day, he did more than provide food for them. He had compassion on them and gave them what they needed most. This same God will provide for your needs, too. Connect with us anytime at

Reawaken the wonder of your faith

In Mark 6:1-6 people were amazed at Jesus but also deeply offended at him. Have you lost your wonder in the familiarity of your faith? In the weeks after Easter we’re going back into the life of Jesus to learn from him. There is incredible truth, wisdom and transformation available in the words and actions of Jesus. Each week we’ll pick up a story from the Gospel of Mark and learn from a Jesus story. Connect with us any time…

Easter Sunday 2023

If all you knew was the 3pm Friday story, Christianity wouldn’t make any sense. A troublesome spiritual teacher is crucified, and then is declared to be God by the very empire that killed him?!

Good Friday 2023

God IS ABLE to strengthen you, that no matter what happens, you can stand strong. This happens when you have a strong foundation in the gospel.

What if Jesus was coming back today? What would you want to do differently if you knew he’d be here in just a few hours?

What personal things would you add under each of these headings from Romans 13 & 14 about how to live in the…

Faith comes from hearing

What is the Gospel (Good News) about Jesus that we must hear and have faith in? We can’t get to God so he came to us, in Jesus. Jesus restores our relationship with God because we can’t do it by ourselves. The next question is often , ‘how?’ How does Jesus do this? The answer to the ‘how’ question is a wide variety of ‘atonement theories’ that we should explore. There is freedom to hold more tightly to the ones…
