"God's call on our lives" - This sermon series is about taking a fresh look at the person and words of Jesus, understanding the impact of the call of God in his life and responding to the challenge this brings to us. We are called to become like Christ - so we must KNOW the person of Christ, as our friend and Lord and must WALK with him, putting him central and allowing him to work in us, taking the place of our old self (Gal 2:20). Being a Christian is about having a daily commitment to LIVE as he wants us to. Let's allow the challenge of this series to stir up a renewed personal response to the call of God on our lives.
"Re-discovering our passion for God" - our relationship with each person of the Trinity. In this series we'll be looking again at our relationship with the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit, asking God to re-kindle that first love (Revelation 2:4) for him. Being reminded of the richness of God's love for us in each person of the Trinity, we pray for a new revelation of the grace we have received.
Jacob and Sons (Dreams, Disputes, Decisions and the plan of God). We all know this as the story of that dreamer Joseph, but the bible actually describes it as the story of Jacob. It is a story of family favourites and feuds, of loss and lies, redemption and restoration. It is a reminder to us of the real consequences of our actions, and how, despite the mess we often make of life, God can still work through every situation to restore relationships.
Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

A series called Spiritual Detox, aiming to help us all "detox" our inner lives. There is a connecting sequence in this series - our past influences our thoughts and how we think; our thinking is articulated in words; our words create our actions; our actions determine our habits; our habits determine our character, and our character determines our destiny.
