Wisdom pt2 - Ecclesiastes
Jamie Fredricks
Jamie takes a look at Ecclesiastes, an unflinchingly honest book about faith that is by turns cynical, worldweary and yet deeply insightful. This is a book for people who have weathered storms: It doesn't offer easy answers or trite philosophies... But for those who engage deeply with it, Ecclesiastes brings rich wisdom and sound encouragement.

Father of Us
Jamie Fredricks
It's sometimes known as 'The Lord's Prayer' or the 'Our Father', but either way the prayer that Jesus teaches his disciples could be said to sum up his whole message, and speak to some of the deepest truths of lives. This week Jamie takes a look at the first one and a half verses...

Struggling, Spitting and Upsetting People
Jamie Fredricks
Often we find ourselves in times of grief, confusion, pain or challenge. Sometimes attempts to comfort us can feel like trying to deny the mess, or tidy it up - they usually feel superficial. Instead, Jamie considers how wrestling with, and being honest about our questions and struggles are at the heart of following Jesus.

The Messiah Manifesto
Nick Drury
Continuing this irregular series, Nick looks at how the first of Jesus’ public addresses is a direct answer to the key question of what this guy's all about. Looking to this Jesus manifesto can help us re-form our understandings of what/who God stands for, and in turn how we are called to represent Christ as we journey into the year ahead.

In All Things Give Thanks
Richard Starling
"In all things give thanks" - 1 Thess 5 v18 as Paul exhorts Christians to remember God is always with us- even in the difficult times. God's compassion is shown as He "saves our tears in a bottle" (Ps 56 v8). God is good, faithful and loving- this is who we follow into 2019.

Gifted pt 3 - Myrrh

In the final part of this series, Nick explores the symbolism of Myrrh and how this relates to the ministry of Jesus, and to our lives. Myrrh manages to tie together images of bitterness wounds and suffering, with healing, transformation and a deep and mysterious sense of the divine.

Gifted pt 2 - Frankincense
Jamie Fredricks
The gift of Frankincense invokes images of worship and priestly ministry. But what does this mean for our lives? The story of Jesus and the Samaritan woman shows how sometimes our thinking about such things can get side-tracked, but also gives us a wonderful vision of 'lives of worship'.
