Into the Wilderness
8:30am, Sunday, February 18, 2018
Passage: Mark 1:13
Series: General
Duration: 18 mins 1 sec
Into the wilderness -- this is where Jesus was LED. Why would God lead Jesus (or anyone) into the wilderness? This is part of our Lenten (and life) journey. May God teach us the lessons there that we need to learn. [Organ/Choir - Lent 1]
ABC Transformation
8:30am, Sunday, February 11, 2018
Passage: Mark 9:2
Series: General
Duration: 19 mins 7 secs
Transformation. It’s a big word or concept. It is not used often in Scripture, but this is one of those days. The disciples were witnesses of it. Later they experienced it for themselves. This is meant for all of us. [Organ/Choir - Transfiguration]
Healed to Serve
8:30am, Sunday, February 4, 2018
Passage: Mark 1:29-31
Series: General
Duration: 13 mins 25 secs
Jesus was running all kinds of risks when he healed Simon's mother-in-law, but he did not hold back. He engages directly and intimately with human need. The healing he brings allows us with our wounds to minister to others. [Organ/Choir - Epiphany 5]
Touched by Freedom
10:30am, Sunday, January 28, 2018
Passage: Mark 1:21-28
Series: General
Duration: 15 mins 41 secs
Words have layers of meaning, and change all the time. So to really understand a Bible story, sometimes it's good to dig deep. Like when Jesus preached with authority plus freedom plus privilege; and then Paul writes that we share in the same privilege and freedom to serve like Jesus. [Organ - Epiphany 4]

Passage: Mark 1:15
Series: General
Duration: 21 mins 49 secs
What is repentance? We can learn from Jonah and the Prodigal Son. It begins with a change of mind, with the realisation that things aren't going so well. Next comes a change of direction. Thirdly, and at last, we change our lives, the whole point of repentance. [Organ - Epiphany 3]
God Calling
10:30am, Sunday, January 14, 2018
Passage: 1 Samuel 3:10
Series: General
Duration: 25 mins 11 secs
Does God still speak to us, or did He fall silent after the Bible was written? The latter is what a lot of people believe, but this is not what the Bible teaches, and not what many Christians experience. Today we take a closer look at how God is still calling and wanting to speak to us. [Organ - Epiphany 2]

Passage: Mark 1:10
Series: General
Duration: 21 mins 52 secs
Have you ever been “torn”? God has. This was part of the sign or significance of His baptism. The result is all good for us. The heavens are open, the Holy Spirit comes, and we hear God. [Organ - Epiphany 1]

Passage: Luke 2:22-40
Series: General
Duration: 20 mins 46 secs
Amid ever-increasing change, some important things continue to resonate. Have you noticed that in this story, we hear next to nothing about the travel and birth itself, and enormous detail about the announcement of the news? [Specialist Choir - Christmas Eve Midnight Mass]

This year, Christmas Eve is also the fourth Sunday of Advent, traditionally celebrating the angel telling Mary that she was to bear the child Jesus (the Annunciation).
