Whatever our beliefs about life and God, we all face times of doubting those beliefs. What is the place of doubt in the life of a Christian? How does it relate to words like faith, unbelief, certainty, and trust? Jonathan opens up this theme and helps us navigate the doubts we face.

Exhaustion To Rest

Christianity: Restriction Or Freedom?
Matthew 7:14
The search for freedom is a crucial part of the human story, but religion often seems to oppress, limit and restrict. At our South Site baptism service, Rich explored the question: "Does following the way of Jesus restrict you or free you?".

The Prayer of Prayers
Matthew 6:9-13
As we come to ‘the prayer that Jesus himself taught us’, we must not be over familiar or sentimental about it. This is no optional life hack to boost our prayer life. This is a model of how we can have a relationship with God, such as Jesus has. But it also challenges us to accept God’s terms. This is a prayer treasure trove, and if we let it shape and mould our lives we will be transformed, and so will the world around us.

I still worry a lot
Matthew 6:24-34
The things you are most devoted to tend to be the things you worry about the most. The solution to your worry isn’t trying harder to stop worrying, or merely pretending the problems have gone away – the ultimate solution is redirecting your devotion.

Direction determines destination
Matthew 10:1-22
Is what we see of Christianity in the UK today 'normal'? Starting in the book of Matthew we look at Jesus' ministry, the early church and the church today across the nations to undertand what 'normal' really is.

When God's silent
Matthew 11
What do you do when it seems God is silent, he doesn't act and he's forgotten you? In this sermon we learn from how Jesus responded to his cousin John the Baptist and see that our personal circumstances do not necessarily correspond to how God feels about us.
