The Real Life in Jesus

Jude 20-25

Sermon by Adam Cetrangolo given on 23 February 2020

The letter of Jude is one of the shortest in the New Testament.  Jude, most likely the half-brother of Jesus, is desperate for his readers to hold on to God’s truth and not to be led astray by false teaching.  He encourages his readers to stick to the teaching they were originally given, and to contend for the true faith.  This message resonates strongly in our 21st century culture that seeks to deconstruct traditional theology.  This three-week study aims to resource followers of Jesus to perceive wrong doctrine and to lovingly seek truth.

Value #1 - To Teach

Mark 8.1-21

Sermon by Adam Cetrangolo given on 12th January 2020

As we launch into 2020 we are taking four weeks to revisit our values (or pillars) that underpin our vision and mission. Our four values, derived from Matthew 10.5-15, are: To Teach, To Pray in Power, To Give Freely and to Partner with People of Peace. During these four weeks we will turn to the Gospel of Mark for fresh inspiration into these key themes with an aim to shape our culture and our goals in the year ahead around these values.

Jesus Meets Us In our Mess

John 1.1-18

Christmas Message by Adam Cetrangolo given on 25th December 2019

In this year's brief Christmas message Adam reflected on John 1.1-18.  Jesus comes to us in our mess.  He is genuinely personal and knowable.  Eugene Peterson's rendering of verse 14 is: The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood. We saw the glory with our own eyes, the one-of-a-kind glory, like Father, like Son, Generous inside and out, true from start to finish.

Sermon by Adam Cetrangolo given on 22nd December 2019

The book of Romans has been described as God’s legal document and the believers title deed. It is one of the most succinct outlines of the intentional relationship between every believer and the God of Heaven and Earth; the details of how that relationship has come about and the affirmation of our changed status as citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven. One of the motivations for Paul's letter was the Gospel coming under attack both by Jews and Antinomians. The Jews insisting that salvation comes from the observance of the Law and the Antinomians believing that if we are saved by grace we therefore have license to do whatever we want. These two extreme views were driving a wedge in the young Church and only the power of the Gospel - clearly defined - would enable the effective spread of this life-changing message. This study of the book of Romans therefore invites us to also depth our understanding of the Gospel as well as allow our hearts to be convicted by the Holy Spirit.
