  • Galatians 5:22-6:5

    24/11/2019 Duração: 21min
  • Why me? Why did Jesus choose me and not my friends and relatives?

    24/11/2019 Duração: 24min

    The idea of God choosing people to be saved leaves many asking why me and why not my friends and relatives? This message presents the mystery of the christian faith in which it is God who saves and individuals who have a responsibility to choose God (or not).

  • Galatians 5:7-21

    17/11/2019 Duração: 34min

    Paul affirms that the gospel he preaches has no place for human achievement and merit in earning salvation. But total dependence on the unmerited grace of God, displayed in the Cross of Jesus, offends people’s pride. Whether or not, in daily life, you are led by the Holy Spirit or you follow the desires of the old sinful nature, is evident by the practical lifestyle and moral choices you make.

  • Remembrance Day Service

    10/11/2019 Duração: 19min
  • Sexuality

    10/11/2019 Duração: 40min

    In just one generation, the Western World view of homosexuality and transgenderism has changed beyond recognition. A generation ago, the practise of homosexuality was condemned by people inside and outside the church. Today, homophobia and transphobia are used critically to describe anyone who holds traditional views of sexuality. But what is the Christian view of these things?

  • All Saints day service

    03/11/2019 Duração: 31min

    Our All Saints' Day Service. There are range of reactions to grief and loss. Different people react differently and we as individuals can have a range of reactions ourselves. In this message we explore which reactions are helpful and as well as reactions which are less helpful.

  • Holiness

    This message address questions of how we can be more holy both individually and collectively, and what a holy life looks like.

  • Don't go back!

    27/10/2019 Duração: 30min

    Through the preaching of the gospel the Galatians had come to put their trust in Christ. But now they were at risk of losing all of the progress that they had made and going back to slavery, being strangers, and immaturity. In this very pastoral and personal passage, Paul appeals to them, "Don't go back!"

  • The Bible

    27/10/2019 Duração: 39min
  • Becoming a Child of God ?

    20/10/2019 Duração: 32min

    Today in our Galatian's passage, we discover the difference that Jesus has made to our relationship with God. To help us explore this more deeply, we look at four illustrations used by Paul: a prison, a guardian, a baptism and an heir. Each example being a wonderful picture of how Jesus frees us, forgives us, gives us a fresh start and opens up the way for us to become adopted children of God.

  • What do I do with the pain of unanswered prayer?

    20/10/2019 Duração: 25min

    This second message in our #AskingForAFriend series looks at how we deal with the pain and disappointment of unanswered prayer. We look at Jesus' prayer in Gethsemane to draw out some thoughts to help us navigate when God doesn't answer our prayers as we hope he will. The message included a clip of an interview with Simon Thomas about his own wrestle with unanswered prayer when his wife died. The full hour long interview can be found here.

  • The Purpose of the Law

    13/10/2019 Duração: 29min

    Paul has argued that no-one will be justified by the works of the law. So what then is the law for? In this next carefully argued section of Paul's letter to the Galatians he points out the problem of the law (and how Christ has solved it), explains the relationship between the promise and the law, and explains the purpose of the law.

  • Where am I in the mission of God?

    06/10/2019 Duração: 36min

    Nigel Coles, Team Leader for the West of England Baptist Association, visited CBC to share a message based on Jesus sending out the 72, called 'Where am I in the mission of God?'.

  • Frontline Sunday: Together we grow

  • The Gospel in a nutshell

    29/09/2019 Duração: 35min

    After nearly two chapters of his autobiographical defence of the gospel, Paul finally states in a nutshell what the gospel is: a person is not justified by the works of the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. But he still wants to press home the arguments for accepting this as the true gospel, and so he develops three arguments, appealing to logic, experience, and Scripture.

  • Whoever we are

    29/09/2019 Duração: 20min

    This is the fourth message in our Frontline Sundays series looking at how knowing who we are as children of God shapes the way we interact in our Frontline places.

  • Galatians 2:1-14

    22/09/2019 Duração: 26min

    This autobiographical part of Galatians tells the story of Paul's trip to Jerusalem to ensure he is not running in vain. The leaders come to his defence and offer him the right hand of friendship. This message has some implications for our understanding of the gospel, how God can be at work through us and challenges us to live in line with the gospel.

  • Whatever we do

    22/09/2019 Duração: 22min
  • Galatians 1: 11-24

    15/09/2019 Duração: 22min

    In this autobiographical section of the book of Galatians Paul describes the impact of the gospel on his life. If he keeps coming back to to theme of the gospel of grace then so should we.
