Advent Pulpit Series: Our Celebration of Hope

The first coming of the Messiah is a fulfilment of the Hope that was prophesied in the Old Testament and now fulfilled in the New. We can rejoice and celebrate because Christ has come, he has died on the cross for our sins and we have hope because He has returned to the Father and He will return again soon to establish His kingdom.
This Christmas season, in spite of all the fake news circulating and all the bad news that confront us daily, we can be confident and steadfast and look forward to blessed days because HOPE has arrived.

Pulpit Series: What The Bible Says About The End Times

The signs tell us that Christ’s return is imminent. But more than just pointing to the signs of His coming, the series will also cover all the critical events of the end times, made known to us in the book of Revelation & in the major prophetic passages in the Bible. What will the Tribulation period be about? Will those who believe in Christ go through the Tribulation? Who is the Antichrist? What is the Millennium & what happens during the millennium reign of Christ? What really is judgement day? What is the New Heaven & New Earth & how different is that from the millennium reign of Christ?

Come prayerfully to learn about these matters and so prepare ourselves as the ready Bride of Christ.

Haggai – Consider Your Ways (4-part Sermon Series) 23 Sep to 14 Oct 2018

Every generation of believers must seek first the kingdom of God. In the book of Haggai, the prophet admonishes and ex-horts the post-exilic community of Israel to prioritise the restoration of God’s temple in Jerusalem over their own pursuits. In doing so, Haggai reminds us of the centrality of God’s presence, provision and purpose and thus the proper priorities of his people. In a world of ever-increasing attractions and concerns which clamour for our attention, Haggai has much to teach us about keeping God and his purposes the main thing.
