Each of us know the experience of seeing a marriage end in divorce. This can happen for so many reasons, and leave us with any number of questions and feelings. What does God's word say about divorce? How can we as a church help each other to experience God's grace, whatever our past experiences? Jonathan explores.

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).
