What Does The Worshipping Church Look Like?
1 Peter 2
What happens when a lot of living sacrifices come together? This passage explains; we form the temple of God and serve as priests of God, resulting in others seeing the goodness of God. This has huge implications for how we each approach Sunday mornings.

Ephesians 6:4
Parenting is a huge privilege, but it can also feel like a rollercoaster of emotions. However, as Christians we are not alone and we have wisdom because of God and His word. This means we can train and instruct our children and learn to banish guilt from our parenting.

The Service Of The King
John 13:1-7
The only people suitable to represent Jesus are the lowly, the humble, the self-denying. Here Jesus sets a pattern for our lives together as the community of God’s kingdom: ‘go low’ to serve and bless others.

The Hospitality Of The King | West Site
1 Peter 4:8-9
The church is the community of God’s Kingdom. Our life together is a demonstration of the good news and a foreshadow of that which is to come when Jesus returns. Through practicing hospitality we invite people into an experience of the grace of God and reflect the fact that he has called us from the outside into his household, where he has prepared a place for us at his table.

Wrestling With God | West Site
1 Corinthians 12
If you wrestle with issues relating to God you are probably on the right track to getting to grips with truth. So how can we wrestle with God for all of the gifts he promises? Why is the example of a mustard seed used to describe the Kingdom of God and how can these ideas enable us to begin to be fruitful?

Finding Your Place In The Body Of Christ
1 Corinthians 12:4-14
Jesus gave up his body willingly because he knew God had a plan, to give him a new body that would continue his ministry on earth. That’s us, the church of Jesus; the Body of Christ. It’s important that we find our place in the body through getting to know the Holy Spirit, discovering our gifts, and playing our part.
