Talks in part one of this series

The Beginning of the Greatest Sermon Ever Told (Part 1)

Rich kicks off our series on the Sermon on the Mount by looking at Matthew 5:1-5 and the first set of “beatitudes”. He reminds us that the gospel is for everyone, and it’s not a reward but a promise of God being with us, whatever life may throw at us.

The Beginning of the Greatest Sermon Ever Told (Part 2)

Rich continues unpacking the first section of the Sermon on the Mount by looking at the next four beatitudes and how to grow as disciples in light of Jesus’ statements.
Read Matthew 5:1-12 and think about the three aspects of our journey that will help us live lives that speak of God’s presence with us: realisation, encounter, and action.

The Beginning of the Greatest Sermon Ever Told (Part 3)

Rich closes our weeks on the beatitudes by looking at Matthew 5:10-12 and what these verses mean for our lives and our patterns of discipleship.

Salt and Light

Louise unpacks the next section of the Sermon on the Mount and delves into how Jesus helps us see how important it is to be salt and light in our lives for the sake of those around us.

Complete in Jesus

Rich helps us unpack this next part of the Sermon on the Mount together and points to how we can step into the freedom that Jesus brings by being the completion of the Law and of the Prophets in the Old Testament.

Talks in part two of this series

Anger, Jesus & Me

We return to our Patterns series and our journey through the Sermon on the Mount by battling some of the more challenging teachings from Jesus. This week we look into anger and its effect on our lives, how Jesus talks about it and how to deal with it within us when it arises.

Jesus, Sex, Lust & Relationships

We continue through the Sermon on the Mount by looking at what Jesus has to say about sex, lust and relationships. He challenges the world view at the time, and today, at how we look at, treat and love each other.

Jesus, Truth, Lies & Whitewashed Tombs

As we continue through Matthew and Jesus speaking on the Mount, we see that what He is saying is designed to bring us back to Jesus, not to add to the list of “to dos”. We’re invited to be transformed through encounter, not to try to change ourselves in order to fit a mould to be allowed to encounter.

Jesus, Conflict & Difficult People

Nina sharing from our morning service, looking at Matthew 5:38-48 and Jesus’ invitation to love our enemies, battle our desire for retaliation and look to Him for a perfect way of living.

Love Your Enemies

Connor sharing from our the Six, looking at Matthew 5:38-48 and Jesus’ invitation to love our enemies, battle our desire for retaliation and look to Him for a perfect way of living.

Talks in part three of this series

Integrity, Relationship & Religon

We return to our look at the Sermon on the Mount, our Patterns series we’ve been digging in and out of for the last year and a half. We start by looking at what Jesus has to say about prayer, fasting and how we conduct ourselves with integrity throughout our lives.

Security & Status

We continue our journey through the Sermon on the Mount and see what Jesus has to say about where we put our security in and what our treasures say about us.

Measures, Planks, Pigs & Pearls

We encounter a rather crazy passage through our look at the Sermon on the Mount and the Patterns that God calls us to live in. What is Jesus saying here and how can we learn to see the beauty of the gospel in our every day lives?
