Responding to … Steve Chalke

Steve Chalke is a name that is familiar to many evangelicals in the UK. He has been, for many years, a prominent figure in the ‘evangelical’ church. He made his profession of faith at the age of 14, served as an assistance pastor for four years in Tonbridge Baptist Church in Kent and founded a Christian Charity called Oasis which…

A Letter to Ephesus

We’re going to try to frame our study of this remarkable letter by thinking about how it is addressed. It comes from … Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God Which betrays Paul’s understanding of himself, his purpose, his reason to live – and all of it is traced back to God.…

Expect the Unexpected – Part 1

Our LifeGroups are working through a study guide on the book of Judges called, “Judges – The Flawed and the Flawless” by Tim Keller. This evening we’re thinking about the first half of the second study – Expect the Unexpected – in Judges 3 looking at Othniel, Ehud and (briefly) Shamgar.

Reminding us that one of the great blessings of the incarnation is the profound increase in the intimacy with which we…

Not a message, but a mission

In our carol service, with readings from Genesis 3 and 12, Isaiah, Luke and Matthew, we tried to recapture the whole of the Christmas story to help us remember, once again, that Christmas isn’t just a message from God but a mission undertaken by God.

Zechariah and Elizabeth

it seemed good also to me to write an orderly account for you … so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught (Luke 1:3-4) There’s a great need to recover Christmas as an historical fact, too often it seems to have become little more than a beautiful fable, a children’s story…
