In today’s talk, we’re wrapping up our God in the Everyday series, and through it, we’ll be exploring what actually takes up the vast majority of our every-day – the mundane ebb and flow of our lives. Where is God when we’re on autopilot? By the end of this service, I hope you’ll be equipped to think about your routine activities, and how you might leverage your routines to help you to show more thankfulness, to ground your days in...

As Christians, we believe that God designed us to live a certain way – primarily living to love God, and love other people. Believe it or not though, we don’t always do that very well. The core message of Christianity though, is that God – through the life death and resurrection of Jesus – has forgiven us. So as forgiven people, we should be extending that gift of forgiveness.

Today, Kirk continues our series on Jesus and Relations...

You know in soppy rom-coms, and so-bad-they’re-good dramas, when the two main characters have an argument based on a misunderstanding? Like, the boyfriend sees his girlfriend hugging another guy, and gets really jealous and upset, only to find out much later that it was her brother? Maybe, like me, you yell at your TV at that point – JUST TALK TO THEM! So much drama and conflict, just because you couldn’t tell them that you’re upse...

Joel today starts by asking the question “what is greatness”? In our bible reading that Karen is about to bring us, we see Jesus flip expectations of the answer to this question, throwing out what we might traditionally consider to be great.

If you responded as Joel pra...

What’s the end of the Christian story? That’s what Wei Han is taking a look at today, as we see in the visions of the book of Revelation.

The great Australian dream is so different to the image we see in Revelation. The Christian Dream makes a huge difference in how we live our lives, living in the hope of Jesus Christ, and waiting the day when we sing those two songs of salvation and worship.

Neville Naden from Bush Church Aid brings today's message.

There’s no reconciliation without unity. Secular reconciliation requires one person doing something for someone, and that person returning the favour. Biblical reconciliation though says that God has done everything required for reconciliation. We have relationship with God, meaning we are in relationship with each other as the body of Christ.

Are you waiting for something exciting? As followers of Jesus, we all are - his second coming. So far, Christians have been waiting 2,000 years, and there are certainly those who scoff at the idea of Jesus coming back. This isn't new though; as Peter writes in this passage, there were already scoffers scoffing just a few years after Jesus' death and resurrection!
