What Is My Purpose In Life

Preached on January 19, 2020
Speaker:

This is a question that at some point confronts us all. It is central to who we are and gives us a reason to get out of bed in the morning. We will look at how our world seems to answer this question and then turn to what God says and consider the implications for our lives.

Why Doesn’t God Answer My Prayers?

Preached on January 12, 2020
Speaker:

As we look at this difficult question about prayer we ask why so many people get the feeling that God isn’t listening, or that he might hear but doesn’t seem to care. By looking at a number of passages in the Bible we first come to see why God says he won’t answer our prayers (under certain conditions), before looking more closely at why we have this feeling of disappointment and why God allows it for our good.

If God Is Good, Why Do Bad Things Happen

Preached on January 5, 2020
Speaker:

We began our January ‘Ask Anything’ Series on Sunday asking the question, ‘If God is good, why do bad things happen?’ We don’t answer the question of the origin of evil here, we’ll deal with that in term 2 when we look at the early chapters of Genesis, but in this sermon we look at why a good God would bring hardship, tragedy, suffering etc. into decent people’s lives. There is no simple answer to this, but as we look at 8 important points we get a good idea what God is doing through the mess of our lives to bring about his good purposes for his people.

God With Us

Preached on December 22, 2019
Speaker:

When the story of Christmas is all dolled up it seems to lose its power because the the true beauty of the moment is lost behind the clean-cut re-enactment we’re all used to. However, when we see the moment for what it was and take the time to see what God was doing behind the scenes, hope and glory emerges out of chaos and we find a joy and peace for all the people, for on that day a Saviour was born, who is Jesus Christ, our Lord
