Spirit-Filled People
Ephesians 5:18
We know the Holy Spirit is important but sometimes we can lack confidence in relating to Him and understanding how He works. Here we look at what the Bible says about Him, and at how we can be filled with the Spirit as individual Christians.

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.

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.
