In his letter to the Ephesian Christians, Paul compares us, God’s community, his church, to a building. The key is the cross of Christ; the foundation is the apostles and prophets, called to speak God’s Word concerning Christ and to witness to Christ and his resurrection; and Christ Jesus himself is the cornerstone, the foundation stone. What’s more, in Jesus we are built by God to be his cross-shaped church in the world. What does this mean?

Passage: Isaiah 6:1-8
Series: General
Duration: 14 mins 35 secs
In baptism, God gives us his name, and calls us by name. We are rescued from the darkness of death, and given the light of eternal life. God calls and equips us to radiate this light by the way we live. But what if we lose our spark? What if the flame of new life in Christ loses its warmth and light in us? God calls us to turn anew to himself; to repent and receive again and again the light and life of Christ for us, and through us for the people in our lives. God is faithful.

Passage: Acts 16:1-15
Duration: 17 mins 34 secs
Maps and GPS units can help us to reach a destination quickly and efficiently. We’d like God’s path for us in life, and for us as church in mission, to be clear and effective and cost-efficient, too. But God’s path is not always likely to be so clear when it comes to his mission direction for us. He calls us to have faith, to dwell in the Word and to discern together his call to us. It’s a call which will always point us to Jesus, and call us to share his love and life for all people.

Passage: Acts 2:1-11
Duration: 14 mins 39 secs
When we hear the words "the Holy Spirit", different images may come to mind, such as wind or fire. But God's Holy Spirit is not an "it", but a person. The third person of the Trinity sends God’s Church on an exciting journey into the neighbourhood and into the world, like a boat setting sail and catching the prevailing winds. Are you ready to come aboard and set sail to follow where the Spirit blows us in God’s mission?

“Do This in Remembrance of Me.” With the Lord’s Supper, Jesus gave us a gift that takes us into his presence. His Word with the bread and wine bring us into his saving acts of grace completed that very first Easter, but also gifted anew when we receive this meal. It is a foretaste of the heavenly banquet with Jesus, also promised for us in heaven.

Series: General
Duration: 15 mins 34 secs
Jesus says in the gospel reading today, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified” (John 12:20​-33). But what does Jesus mean that the Son of Man will be glorified? He calls us to follow him to the cross, and be met there by our gracious God who is there for us and all in need, and who calls and commissions us to go into the world with hope and new life for all. Here is the hour of glory. (YouTube video of the service including this sermon: https://youtu.be/zhHzbb1EUsw ) [Organ/Choir - Lent 5]
