Join us as we continue our series in Mark's Gospel, looking at Jesus the servant king. This week we look at the transition in Jesus' ministry as he turns from the crowds to his twelve disciples. He now begins to especially focus on developing them to continue the minsitry of the Kingdom. Jesus unwraps four key traits for the disciple: humility (thinking of yourself less), hospitality (thinking of others more), generosity (thinking better of others) and growth (focusing on your own).
Join us as we continue our series in Mark's Gospel, looking at Jesus the servant king. This week we look at the varying levels of unbelief around Jesus. We see the stubborn unbelief of the scribes and religious leaders who refuse to accept Jesus, we see the lapsed faih of the disciples, we see the partial faith of the father and we see the total faith of Jesus. Rather than being condemned for our imperfect faith, we are encouraged to simply exercise what faith we have in Jesus and trust his capability and trustworthiness; all things are possible for the one who believes.
Join us as we continue our series in Mark's Gospel, looking at Jesus, the servant king. This morning we look at Jesus' revealing of his glory before his closest disciples and their inability to see Jesus for who he really is. Mark's Gospel centres around and turns upon this moment of revelation and we consider why this is the centre of our faith.
Join us as we continue our series in Mark's Gospel, looking at Jesus the servant king. This morning we look at Jesus' prayer in the garden of Gethsemane as he approaches his arrest, trial and death. We ask why it was that Jesus brought his closest disciples to witness this moment and what he was trying to teach them and us.
Join us as we continue our series in Mark's Gospel, looking at Jesus the Sevant King. We are now focussing on Jesus' journey to the cross. This week we look at Jesus sharing of the passover. We see Jesus preparing the course for his death (as are the religious leaders). We see a despicable betrayal from one of his closest friends. We see Jesus fulfilling everything that the Passover had looked to and we see that Jesus is the hope for us all, who also fail and fall but he goes before us. Its not about us keeping it up, but him keeping us up.
Join us as we finish our two-part new year's series looking at who we are and so what? We have been thinking about what it means to be a Christian and what it is we are trying to be. This week we close by looking at the call to give and go to make disciples. We look to the example of Jesus in John 1 who gives himself and gives up so uch of his glory in order that he might reach us and save us - and who sends us as he was sent.
Join us as we continue our New Year's series reminding ourselves of our vision and distinctives as a church. As a follow on to our series Who do you think you are, looking at our identity in Christ, we are now looking at the life that he calls us to. We begin our series by looking at the call to gather to Christ to worship, in fulfilment of his plan, to gather in relationships, to form a new community and to form a community that seeks to transform the community we are in.
