Messages

Persistence in prayer

Looking at Jesus’ parable about the unjust judge and the persistent widow in Luke 18: 1-8, we consider what that means for us in our prayer life, especially when it seems that our prayers go unanswered.

Take time for mental health

At the close of Qld Mental Health Week, Rev Leo presents a message on the QMHW theme, looking at biblical examples from Psalm 22 and 1 Samuel 16. He begins with a story written by Judith Viorst, called Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Some people have Alexander days every day!

Christian Living

In this last message in the series from Colossians we consider Paul’ words about household relationships among other matters.
