Jesus’ prayer

The last Sunday in the season of Easter we consider Jesus’ prayer of protection for his disciples and Peter’s encouragement to Christians facing persecution.

Palm Sunday

On Palm Sunday as Jesus makes his way into Jerusalem, we ask, who is this ‘king’ who rides a donkey?

The Resurrection and the Life

The message delivered in this service on the fifth Sunday in Lent focuses on the incident of the raising of Lazarus as found in John 11. The whole service is being provide due to COVID -19 meeting restrictions.

None so blind…

Today’s message focuses on the story in John 9 of the man who was blind from birth. Really this is much more than a healing story. It is about those who are blind to the truth; those who are in spiritual darkness. We have moved to online worship as we currently are not meeting physically due to the coronavirus and so this message will link to our YouTube account.

You must be born again!

In today’s message which takes the form of a monologue we hear from Nicodemus, the Pharisee who seeks to learn from Jesus. His encounter with Jesus is found in John 3: 1-21.

The Not so Little Matter Of Temptation

In this message on the first Sunday in the season of Lent, Rev Leo invites us to consider the temptations we face and the challenges of living in a world that is all about the self. We look at the first temptation of man in Genesis, and Paul’s Letter to the Romans comparing Adam with Jesus, and, of course, reflecting on the temptation that Jesus faced in the wilderness as it is recorded in the Gospel of Matthew.
