Two sorts of power

An inspiring cave rescue and world power politics are the backdrop to the story of John the Baptist. One message is that we need to be careful what we ask for. Listen to Kim’s sermon for more!

Connecting – then and now

Kim talks about connecting and crossing boundaries in the ordinariness of life. What connections could you make as you do and share the love of Christ?

Wake up Jesus! I need your help

In the boat, in a crisis, needing help – Who is Jesus to you?

Living life in reverse but going forward!

Kim couldn’t pay for his coffee but someone else did. Others have experienced unexpected generosity. What do we make of this in the light of the Gospel?

Binding the strong man

Kim says this sermon has taken over 20 years to prepare because it is based on life experience. The reading is from Mark 3: 20-35.

Love and Hospitality

We experience the love and hospitality of Jesus as we share in Communion together. How can we be sharers of love and hospitality with others?

God of Awe

Kim, Sue and Melissa explore the subject of awe and lead us in our thoughts and experiences of God.

Unlimited joy in a troubled world

Pentecost is a wonderful, exciting, uplifting reminder of the joy we have when the Spirit of God becomes personal – so that we know and are known and loved by God. Can we then care for others in the knowledge that God cares?

It’s the Vibe

Quoting from “The Castle”, Kim leads us to the conclusion that being a Christian today is a whole of life deal – we need to get the Jesus “Vibe”.
