If we have a passion inspired by God how do we move forward? What are the next steps? Today we learn from Nehemiah that you have to define the vision, you have to plan carefully and you must inspire others.
What do we do when enough is enough, when we can't take it anymore? Today join Darren as he teaches about an OT character called Nehemiah and what his heart led him too when he couldn't take the suffering of his people anymore. (Sermon inspired by teaching by Pastor Craig Groeschel)

In a moving and inspiring sermon Rod clearly demonstrates the powerful message that honouring one another makes to those who witness it.
Paul makes it clear that forming judgements against one another doesn't have a place in the body of Christ. Join Josh as he unpacks yet another 'one another'!
There is nothing more toxic and damaging to the body of Christ than grumbling. Grumbling is the audible sound of a discontent and disbelieving heart. James said "do not grumble against one another", and he did so with good reason. The Bible is littered with people, families and groups that grumble, moan, murmur and complain...... and it never goes well for any of them!
Why do we lie? It's a great question that really does need some attention. We all do it and we could easily do a google search and look up on the internet what the latest, psychological, philosophical or academic view might be about this pretty widespread human behaviour. But the question Darren asks today is personal, why do we lie? What motives are at play, what provokes us to drift into the world of untruth. It truly is a question that needs some attention if the body of Christ is to be truly healthy.
Pastor Greg Johnston shares with us the importance of truly knowing God as a loving Father. This fantastic sermon is born out of his devotional book of the same name which is available free online. Our current newsletter includes details of how to download Greg's book.
On this Pentecost Sunday Darren outlines four things that the power of the Holy Spirit brings into people's lives. He wants us to share Jesus boldly, be strong when we are weak, have hope overflowing and know the fullness of God. Bless you all on this birthday of the Church.
Rod Denton starts the new teaching series entitled 'the one anothers' with Jesus' last intimate words to his disciples. This was so crucial that within the course of his last conversation he mentions three times the importance of loving one another.
