The Secret Of Daniel's Success
Daniel 9
Two of the most noticeable things about Daniel are that he navigated life in exile brilliantly and that he had a disciplined, faith filled prayer life. In Daniel 9, we zoom in on what that prayer life looked like and get practical as to how we can order our private, devotional lives to be like Daniel.

The Presence of God
Exodus 33:1-18
In a time of transition and testing, our greatest need is to deeply encounter the powerful, personal presence of God. Here Jonathan unpacks the story of Moses in Exodus 33:1-18 and calls us to a radical renewal of our hunger for God.

Spirit-Filled Community
Ephesians 5:18-21
What does it look like when a bunch of Spirit-filled Christians come together to worship God? Paul shows here how this results in us being both a singing, and a submitting community. Owen applies it to the West site context.

Participation In Babylon
Daniel 4
In today’s chapter, we see God bring about an incredible change in the King of Babylon. But it was only possible because one of his people chose to participate in Babylon. Jonny opens up the amazing story we find in Daniel 4 and asks what we can learn from the incredible balancing act that Daniel plays as he faithfully serves God at the centre of Babylonian culture.

Selected Series
Where's God?
[ 3 Episodes ] 08 January 2012 - 22 January 2012
We all face times when it feels like God is far away; our prayers are unanswered and our circumstances go from bad to worse. In this series we explore the lives of three characters from the New Testament - each faced circumstances which suggested that God was absent.

When God's forgotten me
John 11:1-45
Can sickness really be for God's glory? Isn't it just a bad thing? From John 11, we look at a time when Jesus didn't act, even for 'the one he loved', 'so that God's son may be glorified through it.'

When doesn't act
2 Corinthians 12
Why doesn't God do something?! Why wouldn't God do this for me? This week we look at Paul's thorn in the flesh from 2 Corinthians 12 and see that God's answer to the person who wrote over half the New Testament was 'No'. Despite what we sometimes feel, there is actually no correlation between whether God acts and whether he exists. In fact sometimes God says no for our good.

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.
