Isn’t it amazing that we are all made in God’s image, and yet there is so much diversity among his people?

Sacred Differences - pt 3 (Gender)

Sacred Differences - Series Setup.001.jpeg

Join us for our new series Sacred Differences, where we explore the vision for diversity, unity and reconciliation in the Kingdom of God. This week Dan and Alisha tag-team a talk on gender difference in the church, together framing up some of the issues that have been experienced and then painting a picture for a vision of the future.

God didn’t create a world where one gender can flourish at the expense of the other. In God’s world, the true flourishing of one depends on and promotes the full flourishing of the other. In fact, God’s kingdom purposes for the world hinge on how well we both flourish and pull together to serve him.

This week Dan teaches on the removal of the social ladder in the early church and we hear from a couple of our own with their story of the gift of difference amongst each other.

In Christ we now have a flattened reality to live in together.

Sacred Differences: Series setup

Sacred Differences - Series Setup.001.jpeg

Join us for our new series Sacred Differences, where we explore the vision for diversity, unity and reconciliation in the Kingdom of God. We begin with Dan Sheed sharing on the scriptural movement from the chosen people of God to the open and diverse church, and what that means for us today.

So often, our vision of a dream church is a dream of more people like us. Is this really the full expression of the community following Jesus?

Pentecost: Baptism of the in-and-on Spirit

Pentecost Dates.png

Join us for this special festival of Pentecost as for two weeks we make the most of the church season of Spirit empowerment. This Sunday Dan starts us off in the origin story of the church in Acts 1 and the revolutionary promise Jesus told them to wait for.

‘Come, Holy Spirit’ is a direct, bold request for the Spirit to do the work the Father wants to do in us, and to be the fire that propels us out to do the work the Father wants to do through us.
