Easter Services 2018
Jesus said he came that people might have ‘life, and have it to the full’ (John 10:10). He said he came to give eternal life (John 3:16), that he gives living water (John 4:10) and is the bread of life (John 6:35). Despite these claims, his own life was tragically cut short, executed through a conspiracy of religious leaders and a failure of political justice. Yet, it is through this darkness Jesus offers life.

Christmas 2017
There were many _strange things_ around the time of Jesus’ birth—angelic appearances, shepherds announcing new kings, visitors from distant lands, and a maiden who became a mum. These strange things were all pointing to one momentous event—the baby in the manager who is ‘God with Us,’ the promised saviour and king—it’s strange but true. Please join us this Christmas as we reflect on _strange Christmas things_ and celebrate the coming of Jesus. Read more

In term 4 2017, at both Church and Bible studies, we’re continuing our series in Romans, seeing what it means to know and to live in God’s mercy. Read more

Jesus’ Crucifixion: One Among Many (Free Public Lecture)
During the time of the Ancient Roman Empire, ten’s, if not hundred’s of thousands of people were executed by crucifixion. It was a painfully cruel method of execution reserved for the lowest of the low—slaves, pirates, and enemies of the state. However, out of all those crucified by Rome, there is one whose name is remembered and whose death is celebrated around the world—Jesus of Nazareth. What makes Jesus’ crucifixion different? Read more
