Current series | D̶Y̶S̶FUNCTIONAL

Everyone knows what dysfunction looks like, especially in other people and their families. It’s so easy to spot and such a great source of gossip.

But what does healthy functionality really look like in my life? What could it feel like? How much better would life be if we all functioned in healthy ways more often?

Life together may look more like a celebration than disappointment with ourselves and discomfort with others. Heaviness and discontent may be replaced with a lightness of being and contentment in all things. Come with us as as we ditch the ‘dys’ and embrace God’s healthy functionality for families, marriages, relationships and communities.

A great read at a great price

Alan Hirsch is convinced that the inherited formulas for growing the Body of Christ do not work anymore. And rather than relying on slightly revised solutions from the past, he sees a vision of the future growth of the church coming about by harnessing the power of the early church, which grew from as few as 25,000 adherents in AD 100 to up to 20 million in AD 310. Such incredible growth is also being experienced today in the church in China and other parts of the world. How do they do it? The Forgotten Ways explores the concept of Apostolic Genius as a way to understand what caused the church to expand at various times in history, interpreting it for use in our own time and place. From the theological underpinnings to the practical application, Hirsch takes the reader through this dynamic mixture of passion, prayer, and incarnational practice to rediscover the dormant potential of the modern church in the West.

Discover freedom

“You’re free!” Releasing words, indeed. Through The Freedom Journey, you’ll be taken on a venture from whatever enslaves you, into a life of freedom and opportunity, all via the wilderness. In this place of restoration, not desolation, you’ll identify the renewed mindsets the Holy Spirit will grow in you. Restored, and propelled forward, you’ll discover that freedom is not so much a place, as a way of being and relating, living in the absolute security that you’re incredibly loved. Loved and loving, you get to soar and lead others into freedom as well.

A passionate speaker, preacher, Bible teacher and now author, who was a church planter and pastor for 25 years. Peter now spends his time helping others know the power of God's love for themselves, their families and communities. Check out all four inspiring titles:

The Wonder

A fresh sermon series begins soon

Joy, joy joy down in my heart…Where? That’s the question isn’t it. So much of this life can be described as struggle and suffering. We wait for circumstances to change so we can have some relief but it rarely comes soon enough and never seems to stay. We forget how to laugh and celebrate, we experience the distancing of friendships and the increase of isolation and loneliness. What if joy was a choice and it could be experienced it in any moment of any situation? What if joy had the capacity to establish resilience, strengthen character, and the power to build us into communities? St. Paul in his letter to the Philippians invites us to embrace the pandemic of joy that is highly contagious and leads to an abiding joy that is in our hearts to stay.

Begins Sunday 1st October 2023.

Today's verse & thought to ponder ...



HEBREWS 10:24-25

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the day approaching.
