In this message Jenny looks at the upside down (right way up) nature of the Kingdom of God. The Bible is full of stories of women with jars (The woman at the well; Elijah’s Widow; Elisha’s Widow and the Woman with alabaster jar, to name a few). They are simple, unassuming and normal. Looking at these stories Jenny unpacks how, surprisingly, women carrying jars are one of God’s secret weapons. It’s not about being a woman... it’s about being you. You don’t have to wait for some great supernatural experience in order to be everything God has called you to be. You just need to be you. Normal, genuine you. As simple as a woman carrying a jar.

God always wants to move us forward. “Step by step were moving forward” He often leads us through challenging situations. He puts people in place to support/help us and puts us in place to support/help them. As you move forward don’t be satisfied with a little, ask for a double portion from God.

In this message, Gareth explores the passage in Luke’s gospel of two men travelling to Emmaus shortly after the Jesus’ death. As they journey, their mood downcast and thinking all hope is lost, they meet the resurrected Christ but do not recognise that it is Jesus. What is preventing them from fully seeing Jesus? What can we learn from their experience and how do we walk with God with open eyes?

.. is a question we rarely ask ourselves. But the answer to this question is what informs how we feel, behave and interact with the world. The Word says that we are royalty, holy, chosen and special. In this message Jenny unpacks some of the factors that contribute towards forming our identity, and explores why sometimes we struggle to accept what God says about us. When we fully accept the truth of who we are, we will begin to “walk worthy” of our calling.

In his first ever preach Alan takes us to the book of Colossians. Drawing on the first 9 verses he explores 5 key words - prayer, faith, love, hope and the Gospel. He encourages us, that in the face of distractions and complications we really just need to get back to our roots.

​​Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God, It’s time for the Church to take hold of God’s Word, to believe it’s the truth. It’s time to find out what God’s Word says over every circumstance we find ourselves in, let’s find it, guard it, speak it out and act on it because it is life. God is always committed to His Word, He is watching over it to perform it. Let’s walk out in Faith on the truth of God’s Word.

Ever felt like God has left you on the sidelines? That what He said He would do He just didn’t do? In this message Jenny talks about the joy and excitement experienced when we hear God and He speaks to us about His plans for our future. She explores what happens after we hear and how things rarely pan out as we imagine! In this message of hope she encourages us to see God moving in the dark times and implores us to trust that His Word is still true - He WILL fulfil His promise to you.

Build a relationship whilst in the place of the word. Go to the High place where we can see the cross. The cloud of His presence is looking for somewhere to rest. Let Him rest in you. We are of the way, let’s not be in the way.

It’s easy to get overwhelmed when we look at the massive job of transforming the world. As a result we become disheartened and some of us even hang up our boots. The job is just too big! In this message Dennis addresses this mentality. He implores us to take heart and reminds us - You don’t have to change the whole world, but you are called to change your world!

Why do we feel under the greatest attack from the enemy after a great spiritual experience? The enemy wants to keep us from walking with God, so when we feel closest to the Lord it can feel like we're under the greatest resistance. Elijah experienced exactly this feeling after witnessing the power of God on Mount Carmel. In this message we look at why "force creates resistance" and how we can overcome the schemes of the enemy that try to drag us back in our walk with God.

Ever felt frustrated, disappointed, overwhelmed, betrayed, hurt, misjudged and humiliated? In the last 24 hours of Jesus life He experienced these emotions and more. The Bible says Jesus was tempted in every way. In this message Jenny explores what that really means - and how acknowledging his humanity brings us closer to Him as we realise that He understands us... even when we don’t understand ourselves.

Jesus teaches us that the greatest commandment is to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’” (Mark‬ ‭12:30‬). But is that the reality of our lives? There are many areas in life which can distract our focus from God. These areas such as sport, social media, success or money, can become a greater focus to us than God. How do we keep our lives free of ‘modern idols’ and love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength?

Do we believe God, or do we know Him? Heb 6v1-3 explains the necessity to go from basic elementary teaching about Christ into maturity. As we developed this maturity, we go from believing God into knowing Him.

Whilst driving along in his car, Mark heard God tell him he needed to “strengthen his core”.  In this message, Mark unravels what he has learnt from exploring how  spiritual strength is not something that is developed in public, rather it is in the secret place, at our core that the real work is done.
