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?".

Identity
Genesis 1:26-28
One of the most basic questions a human being can ask is 'who am I?'. As Jonny outlines a biblical picture of identity, he explains why we have to consider not just one, or even two, but three different identities, as we seek to understand who we are and who we could be. (Preached at West+North only).

Sex
Genesis 1:31
There's a lie going around that says God is a grump, a killjoy, who loves to stop our fun. Nothing could be further from the picture the Bible paints. Jonathan starts our Blueprint series by exploring how sex itself was God's idea, and yet so often we end up distorting this good gift.

Christ The Victor
Colossians 2:13-15
The death of Jesus is the darkest day in the whole Christian story. How could it possibly be good news? Rich unpacks the New Testament idea that as Jesus is defeated on the cross, he's actually winning a far greater victory...

How Can Anyone Believe In A Dead Man Rising?
As part of our Good News series (and our Big Questions mornings), Jonny looked at the question of whether there's any evidence to support the claim that Jesus of Nazareth came back from the dead. NOTE: The final section of Jonny's talk has been left out, it contained personal stories not for online sharing.
