Sunday Morning

Desperate Faith

Luke 8:40-56 The story of Jesus raising Jairus’ daughter from the dead and healing the sick woman teaches us that Jesus has authority over sickness and death. It calls us to reflect on our own weakness and mortality and to come to Jesus with desperate faith. We believe that Jesus has power to heal in this life, and even more importantly, that he has the power to give us eternal life.

Simeon’s Song

Luke 2:25-35 Christmas is a time of great anticipation. In today’s passage, we meet Simeon, a man who has been waiting with great anticipation for the Lord’s Messiah. In Jesus, Simeon finally sees the one he has been waiting for and he praises God for his gift of salvation. But he also has a sombre warning for Mary. This baby might be the bringer of peace, but he will also face great hostility, as will all who pledge their allegiance…

Mary’s song

Luke 1:46-55 Mary magnifies the Lord because he is mindful of us, mighty, and merciful. She celebrates because of the great blessings that will come through the baby she carries. These blessings are for her, for the socially marginalised and for all the descendants of Abraham, including us.

Partners together in Christ

Philippians 1:3-11 In today’s message Pastor Murray farewells the City North church he has pastored for the past 19 years. Using Paul’s heartfelt words to the Philippians, he urges us to see the vital importance of the gospel in defining the character and ministry of the church. He also expresses his confidence that God will continue to complete the work He has been doing in our lives. And like Paul, he prays that we might always keep growing in our…

The Worthy Pastor

1 Peter 5:1-4 Churches need godly leaders, especially when times are tough. But what makes a good pastor or elder? What should we look for when choosing our leaders? The words of the old apostle Peter in today’s passage are urgently necessary for us today … men who understand their calling to spiritually shepherd God’s people, men whose character and motives are pure, and men who are not seeking earthly recognition or reward. May God in His kindness raise up…

Fellowship in Christ

We are the temple of God, the body of Christ and the bride of Christ. Listen as we explore these pictures of fellowship from Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, thinking about what they teach us about our priorities as a church. Who we are together ought to shape the way we live together as those whom God has called into fellowship with one another in Christ.

Empowered Through Christ

Romans 8:1-13, Galatians 5:13-26 The work of Christ on the cross transforms the believer, from death to life, from dark to light. But this transformation must then be lived out day by day, as we seek to go the distance in the Christian life. God’s Holy Spirit transforms our sinful desires and empowers us to live transformed lives as we cooperate with his work in our lives.

Transformed through Christ

1 Peter 1:13 – 2:3 If you are a Christian, are you a growing Christian? No matter how old we may be, God wants us to be continually growing in holiness. But spiritual change requires spiritual means. Firstly it begins as we are redeemed by the precious blood of Christ. Only God can do this for us. But secondly, we need to keep feeding our souls on the living word of God. The Bible is our spiritual food like milk…
