Authority and Obedience: What Is Obedience?
10:30am, Sunday, September 27, 2020
Series: General
Duration: 16 mins 21 secs

Is God Unfair?

Series: General
Duration: 14 mins 18 secs
"In Christ, all are equal. Is that fair, God?" God's grace and forgiveness are unlimited, and are extended to everyone - even the most 'undeserving'.

Forgive One Another as God in Christ Has Forgiven You
10:30am, Sunday, September 13, 2020
Duration: 15 mins 27 secs
'Sorry seems to be the hardest word.' Maybe. But forgiving others also seems difficult. Our world doesn't model this well. As Christians, we have the perfect model in Jesus. He models this by his life of forgiving. In him, we can learn and grow in a life of forgiving.

10:30am, Sunday, September 6, 2020
Passage: Matthew 7:1-5
Duration: 13 mins 42 secs
It seems so normal in our world to blame others. This often happens in conflict situations. Jesus calls us to search our own actions, words, thoughts, and hearts to see if there is a 'log in our own eye'. The Seven A's of Apologising/Confessing can help us work through conflict in a healthy way.

Passage: Romans 5:6-11
Duration: 13 mins 8 secs
We’re all made differently. Our personalities and make up are different. How do you respond to conflict? Sometimes our responses are very different. God has a way of working with conflict which he shows and gives in the life, death, and resurrection new life of Christ.

Series: General
Duration: 11 mins 30 secs
We all know that 'sinking feeling' in life. Peter experiences it when he takes his focus from Jesus to his own strength and fear. But Jesus doesn't abandon Peter, nor any of us.

Series: General
Duration: 13 mins 42 secs
There are times in life that we feel overwhelmed, over-tired, under-prepared for difficult situations. We are like the disciples who were faced with feeding a huge crowd and who say “Lord, send them away”. Jesus wonderfully equips us with what we have as disciples, and says, “You go and feed them.” (YouTube video of the service including this sermon: https://youtu.be/SBnoykO3HDo) [Prerecorded music - Pentecost 9]
