Are You out there?

By | July 29th, 2018|Uncategorised|

Prayer is a strange thing. In some ways, it's the most natural thing in the world. We sometimes can't really help ourselves in crying out to God in times of distress or anxiety. Even atheists admit to praying at times as they frantically send cries for help to heaven, even though they they don't think [...]

What NOT to pack away this Christmas

By | December 27th, 2017|Family News|

  There’s always a melancholy feeling that comes over me when it’s time to pack the Christmas decorations away. Christmas has come and gone and in some ways, nothing is different.

Last Sunday, I preached about our freedom to choose and how we need to keep choosing freedom and choosing to live by the Spirit, rather than following our natural inclinations (see Galatians 5).

3 things I learnt about faith and God from being a mom

By | May 12th, 2017|Family News|

In honour of mother’s day I’ve been reflecting on how being a mother has changed my life. There aren’t really any words, of course, to sum up how it has changed me, but I do know that it has shaped my faith and helped me understand God more deeply in many ways. Here are a [...]

Freedom

By | April 27th, 2017|Family News|

Today, on Freedom day, we reflect on what it means to be free. We remember our national history of oppression and the violation of people's freedoms and rights and we continue to pray for our nation, but we also acknowledge that freedom is ultimately not something that can be granted by a government or any [...]

By | March 10th, 2017|Family News|

We recently finished a series entitled "I AM" in which we looked at the seven "I am" statements Jesus makes in the Gospel of John. He says, "I am the bread of life", "I am the light of the world", "I am the door", "I am the Good Shepherd", "I am the way, the Truth [...]
