Our story, our song

Israel’s song tells the story of what God has done, who God is, and what God will do. Everyone who has a story of salvation has a song to sing, including us.

Deliver us from evil

Israel’s great deliverance through the Red Sea reminds us that we desperately need deliverance, that we experience deliverance by trusting God and that when we are delivered, God is the one who gets the glory.

Dealing with disappointment

All of us experience disappointment in life. Tonight’s passage helps us think about how Christians can understand, express and move past the disappointments that they encounter.

God revealed

Revelation changes the way we view things. Let us consider how God’s revelation of himself changes the way we view our identity, our problems and our future.

The rescuer

Listen as we meet Moses, Israel’s imperfect rescuer, who points us forward to our perfect rescuer, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Refugees to slaves

As we begin the story of Exodus, we encounter three themes which set the scene for the rest of the story: God’s promises, Pharaoh’s opposition, and Israel’s pain. These themes help us understand how the story of Exodus has become the story for all Christians.

Fitting praise

Listen as the Psalmist gives us three reasons why it is fitting that we praise God. May we always remember just how worthy of praise God is.

Healthy choices

The letter of 3 John centres around three characters, Gaius, Diotrephes and Demetrius. Each of them teaches us a lesson about what it means for us to nurture healthy Christian lives.

Encountering God’s love

The Apostle John encountered the extraordinary love of God on that first Easter. From his writings, it is clear that he never got over just how amazing God’s love for us is. On Easter Sunday, let John remind us again of the extraordinary, life changing love of God.
