A Call To Community
Various
"If God sets the lonely in families, individualism sets the lonely in tribes". With isolation and loneliness at record levels as our culture creaks, Jonathan uses various passages to call us to something gloriously different, to true community.

Comparison To Calling
Judges 6:11-16
So many of us are stuck in a pattern of comparison, where we look to our left and our right to find our place. Even though we know it's a desperate way to live, we can't seem to help ourselves. Looking at Gideon's unlikely journey in Judges 6, Rich shows us that the cure to living by comparison is living by calling.

Doubt To Trust
Matthew 11:1-6
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.
We apologise for the crackling on the recording.

Exhaustion To Rest
Matthew 11:25-30
Despite all of our so-called progress, stats show that Western 21st century produces record levels of burnout, restlessness and exhaustion. What's the solution? Here, Jonathan shows how the gospel of Jesus is the only hope for the deep rest we all long for.

Judgment To Generosity
Luke 6:36-37
Critical, finger-pointing, slow to think the best of others - it's not a great list! But, tragically, even the church of Jesus can fall into such graceless judgmentalism. By considering our past, our future, and who God is, Jonny helps us move instead towards a generosity of spirit.

Devotion & Multiplication
Acts 13:1-3
The early church experienced phenomenal multiplication. But preceding the call to ‘go’ was the invitation to ‘come’. This sermon explains our reason for existing as a church and is an appeal to prioritise devotion to Jesus above all else!
