How To Make Sense Of Everything

6 September 2020 - David Archer

How To Make Sense Of Everything

A Sunday exploring one of life’s big questions. It was Pablo Picasso who said, “The world today doesn’t make sense, so why should I paint pictures that do?” Perhaps you relate to his sentiment especially at this time. Many people report feeling confused, lost, frustrated, fed up, and their health and well-being are suffering as a result. They feel like giving up. God hasn’t given up though, and this is our single biggest source of encouragement. The question then becomes, do you know God?

Quarrelling With God

30 August 2020 - David Archer

Quarrelling With God

Week 5: "Quarrelling With God" Jonah 4.1-11 God’s grace is the centrepiece of the story. Yet all too many mean-spirited believers fail to identify with the outrageous favour and actions on God’s part, instead feeling jealous when God acts in a way that they don’t understand or approve of!

Jonah 4:1-11

A Second Chance

23 August 2020 - David Archer

A Second Chance

Week 4: "A Second Chance" Jonah 2.10-3.10 God is the God of second chances! But, like Jonah, when God gives us a second chance, it marks a new beginning and a fresh start – not just for our lives, but also for the lives of those around us.

Jonah 2:10-3:10

In Deep Water

16 August 2020 - David Archer

In Deep Water

Week 3: "In Deep Water " Jonah 1.7-2.10 The good news is that, as with Jonah, God is willing to go to great lengths to call us back to our destiny. The bad news is that they way He does this might not be what we want, or expect ...

Jonah 1:7-2:19

Wake Up!

9 August 2020 - David Archer

Wake Up!

Week 2: "Wake Up!" Jonah 1.3-9 There is an irony with going the wrong way. Although the journey to Tarshish promised much relief and freedom to Jonah, it was to become a voyage of unrest, danger and loneliness, as Jonah encounters life outside God’s will.

Jonah 1:3-9

On The Run

2 August 2020 - David Archer

On The Run

The message of Jonah is simple: God who is rich in love, has a passion for reaching the unreached that’s way more intense than ours! He has a commitment to evangelism that far exceeds our own, seeking to reach out to those who live in ignorance of His love and grace! And He’s committed to doing so through His people, even when they let Him down badly! Week 1: "On The Run" Jonah 1.1-3 There is something in each of us, which like Jonah, left unchecked will prevent us realising our potential or cause us to evade our destiny!

Jonah 1:1-3
