The Power of Weakness
Judges 7
Sometimes you’ll never know God’s all you need until he’s all you have. What we learn from the example of Gideon is that our weakness can often be our greatest advantage.

Faith For The Future: West Site Vision Talk
Hebrews 11:1-3
What are you looking forward to? When you look at the future, do you see reason for hope? As Christians we have a solid and secure foundation for hope, based on what God has said and done. As a church and a site, God has a bright future for us. How do we get there? Owen shares...

Fight For Freedom!
Judges 6
As Christians we know Jesus has set us free! Yet we all find it hard to live in that freedom day to day. Why is that? How can I break free? The story of the Israelites - and our first glimpse of Gideon - in Judges 6 provide the answers.

Selected Series
The Big Story
[ 18 Episodes ] 24 September 2014 - 01 March 2015
The Bible is hard to get your head round. 2000 pages. 66 books. And if you get lost in the detail you can lose sight of the Big Story. This series is accompanied by an art project. Some of the artists are just starting out on their creative journey, others are more experienced. You can view it at bigstorybible.tumblr.com.

Finding your place in the story
As we conclude the Bible in 20 weeks series the Big Story leads us to ask how we find our part? By looking at the call God gave Abraham we will begin to answer that question and see how we can live radically different from the culture around us

How does the gospel reach the ends of the earth?
Acts
Last week we saw how God sent his Spirit to us so that we could take his wonderful rescue plan to the ends of the earth. But how exactly should we go about this monumental task? Today we look at the rest of the book of Acts and find the answer to that question.

How the Spirit fits into the story
Acts 2:1-12
With Jesus' work completed there is a real sense that 'it is finished', yet in another sense, it has only just begun. How then should we understand the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost?

The Shepherd King
1 Samuel
David is one of the great heroes in the Bible. A man of courage, a warrior and a worshipper, but more than these things he is described as 'a man after God's own heart'. as we look at his story we see what this looked like.

Who is the Lord
Exodus
A good story is not just about advancing a plot; it is also about developing the characters. It's the same with the Bible and in this section of the Big Story, we learn a lot about the main character in the story: God. We may think we know these characteristics inside out, but as we look at the time when Moses and the Israelites found them out for the first time, let God's power, love and righteousness hit us afresh again.

The people God chooses to use
Genesis 11-50
The people God chooses to use are not the obvious choice – they’re nobodies who believed & risked everything to follow him. Although this might initially surprise us, this message will help us see that it actually makes perfect sense

In the beginning God
Genesis 1-10
God invites us right at the start of the Bible to make a choice between submitting to him as creator of all & living to worship him, or forgetting about him & living for ourselves.
