It’s finally here! The day we celebrate the coming of Jesus at Christmas time. Christmas for many of us is a time to reminisce about our childhood, and as people of faith, a time to be reminded that it is Jesus who should have priority at Christmas and all the days that follow.
This Sunday we celebrate the fourth Sunday of Advent by looking at the theme of Love. We learn some interesting aspects of Godly Love that will help us to change our mindsets and lead us into living a more Kingdom life!
This Sunday we celebrate the third Sunday in Advent by lighting the Joy candle. Today we focus on the joy felt by the Shepherds and observe the haste with which they left everything behind to seek out the Messiah. What are the ways in which we can keep our eyes on Jesus this Christmas?
This Sunday we celebrate the second Sunday in Advent – Peace. God’s peace is so unlike the peace that the world offers, how can we grasp the peace that the Prince of Peace gives especially during the storms of life.

The Sunday we start a new sermon series on the spiritual disciplines. In recent weeks we have been covering Prayer and Self Denial and so it seemed appropriate to begin with prayer and prayer as the Lord Jesus taught us.
This week we look at the last theme of NZBMS’ Prayer and Self-Denial appeal, “The Mordecai Movement.” So very pertinent in our time I think. What injustices are we called to stand up for, for the sake of the Kingdom?
Just a quick note to say there will be no videos for the next two weeks as our video editor takes a break. This Sunday, we begin our engagement with NZBMS’s Prayer and Self-Denial appeal. The mission of God is all around us, but often we lose our focus on what God is doing andContinue reading “2021-10-03 Sermon – Prayer and Self Denial – Part One”
