Out of shame: impurity to perfection – the new heart (with Q&A)

5/21/2019
More
William Taylor - We all know how significant reputation is in life. But what does God do to restore his reputation when his reputation has been ruined by his people? God's promise is that he will act to establish his reputation.

Duration:00:32:35

Out of exile: ruin to restoration – the new land

5/14/2019
More
William Taylor - Despair is a wretched condition. The Christian assurance is of a sure and solid hope, a certain future and concrete promise of eternal rest. The promise is made by God over millennia and underwritten in history by the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus.

Duration:00:35:22

Out of chains: slavery to security – the new king

5/7/2019
More
William Taylor - We can all see the failings of leadership in our companies, governments and in the church. But what is it like when God takes charge? And have we welcomed the divine takeover?

Duration:00:30:53

Out of oppression: from abuse to care – the new shepherd

4/30/2019
More
William Taylor - Leadership is something that concerns us all—especially flawed leadership. Whether in Westminster, Hollywood, the office or the church, we all hate hypocritical and self-serving leaders. So does God. The trouble is wherever we look, every leader has their 'Achilles heel'. In the Bible God promises a different kind of leader; one who leads his people with genuine selfless care.

Duration:00:33:44

From despair to hope – the new voice (with Q&A)

4/23/2019
More
William Taylor - What hope is there when everything appears to have been stripped away and all we are left with is bleakest darkest despair? Where does hope come from in a world of unrelenting bad news? When it seems that God has acted to remove everything that gives cause for joy, how can God’s people find grounds for optimism? Ezekiel, that great prophet of the Old Testament, provides answers to these most testing questions.

Duration:00:35:40

What's wrong with the world and how did God fix it?

4/9/2019
More
William Taylor - Jesus' death on the cross was to glorify his father's name, cast out the ruler of this world, to be lifted up from the earth and to draw all people to himself. But what will our response be? Will it be to continue to walk in darkness or will we choose to walk in the light that is Jesus?

Duration:00:26:48

The Bible in 20 minutes (with Q&A)

4/2/2019
More
Charlie Skrine - In this short overview of the Bible, Charlie Skrine explains what the Bible is and why we should read it because it gives the answers to what life is about and what God is doing in this world.

Duration:00:33:37

What is satisfaction and how do we get it?

3/26/2019
More
Charlie Skrine - What is satisfaction and how do we get it? Jesus Christ says that true satisfaction can only be ultimately found and fulfilled in him, the living water.

Duration:00:31:45

Share and keep sharing Jesus from the Bible

3/19/2019
More
Le Fras Strydom - Jesus motivates us to keep sharing his powerful word, even when it's hard work and the response is mixed. His powerful word has the power to open blind eyes.

Duration:00:24:11

Jesus and his word are so powerful (with Q&A)

3/12/2019
More
Carl Porter - Jesus' words are powerful, but how will people hear them? In this talk, we see how easy it is to share Jesus' life-giving words with anyone - whoever they are and whoever we are. In this talk, Carl shows how easy it is to use the ‘Word One to One’ books to share John’s Gospel.

Duration:00:23:25

The joy of Bible sharing (with Q&A)

3/5/2019
More
Carl Porter - We often don't see disciple-making as a joyful work, but instead a work to be feared. We worry about not knowing what to say and do. Carl shows us how every Christian can engage in the best work available - sharing the gospel with our colleagues. It is a lot easier than we might assume. This talk includes a Q&A on how to use the ‘Word One to One’ books, which help you to share John’s Gospel.

Ambitious for glory

2/26/2019
More
William Taylor - Many Eastern thinkers view history as circular - we're just going round and round. Much Western thinking sees history as random - there is no rhyme or reason. Christians believe that history is linear. We have come from somewhere, creation; we are going to somewhere, judgement. This Christian conviction concerning the future governs everything about the mature Christian in the present. In a world who thinks that we are all adrift, it presents a beautiful and radical...

Knowing resurrection power

2/19/2019
More
William Taylor - At the heart of the Christian faith is a personal relationship with Jesus. Christianity is about knowing him. But what does knowing Jesus actually look like? Paul speaks in terms of knowing his resurrection power in our lives today and having confidence of a future resurrection from the grave. It is the first of these two aspects of the resurrection that provides the greatest surprise. For the resurrection power of Jesus is experienced today in our partnership in the...

Rejoicing

2/12/2019
More
William Taylor - Paul's concern is for the wellbeing of his gospel partners in Philippi. He asks them to compare the value of all human achievement against the value of knowing Jesus Christ as Lord. Compared to gaining Christ, every human possession should be as nothing to them.

Duration:00:36:07

Willing to serve and suffer

2/5/2019
More
William Taylor - The practice of imitation or copying sometimes receives a bad press. But there are few higher compliments than someone who mimics you. Paul gives us two examples to copy - a church leader and an ordinary Christian worker. They both knew the ‘mind of Christ’, which transformed them into true gospel servants.

Duration:00:28:44

Without grumbling or disputing

1/29/2019
More
William Taylor - God works within the Christian both to will and to work for his good purposes. This makes the Christian's labours unlike anything else on this planet. It is the work of God that we are engaged in here in the City, both prompted and empowered by him. It is a thrilling enterprise that can never be thwarted.

Duration:00:32:01

With the mind of Christ

1/22/2019
More
William Taylor - Mindfulness coaches will tell you to put yourself right at the centre of everything. The Christian alternative is radically different. The 'mind' of Jesus Christ is one of selfless, purposeful sacrifice. We see this most profoundly in his death on the cross; it is vindicated by his resurrection from the dead. To have this 'mind' changes everything and sets the guage for every decision in the Christian's life.

Duration:00:34:12

In full accord

1/15/2019
More
Charlie Skrine - We all work in teams. But often, whether in the workplace or the church, those teams are divided, dysfunctional and distressing. Paul’s vision for the Philippian church is to create loving, like-minded, gospel focused teams that last.

Duration:00:31:21

Firm and fearless for the gospel

1/10/2019
More
Charlie Skrine - The world needs the life-saving gospel but Christians are so often divided, weak and scared. The answer is the mind of Christ.

Duration:00:35:24

Immanuel, God with us

12/20/2018
More
William Taylor - Immanuel means God with us. That is who Jesus is - God with us. We were given the greatest gift imaginable on that first Christmas day; God’s son who would take away the sin of the world. Predicted hundreds of years before his birth, Jesus’ whole biography was already written in the Old Testament. His life, death and resurrection on this earth was just the beginning - God will one day put right everything wrong in this world, through a final judgement. All of us stand...
