In this service Rev Leo takes a look at Romans 12: 1-8 and calls us to stand up and stand out for Jesus. We are called to be non-conformists when the world is not living by kingdom values. reference is also made in this message to Matthew 16: 13-20.

Covenant Sunday 2020

In this message we look at the Covenant that God initiated with Israel moving to the new covenant we have with God through the action of Jesus. The address was delivered on Covenant Sunday, an annual tradition of renewing our commitment early in the new year.

AUSTRALIA DAY MESSAGE

A message looking at the challenges and opportunities for the church today. Scripture passages: 1 Corinthians 1: 18 and Matthew 4: 17-22.

Sinners in the hands of a Loving God

In reflecting on two of Jesus’ ‘lost and found’ stories (Luke 15: 1-10) we consider the heart of God and the lengths to which he goes to rescue just one person. Indeed we are sinners in the hands of a loving God.

The Cost of Discipleship

What is the cost of discipleship? Is it too much? Jesus calls for radical commitment in this passage from Luke 14: 25-33. Taking up our cross and placing Jesus above all else, including family may not sound like good news, yet it is the way to life.

The supremacy of Christ

In the second in the series on Colossians, looking specifically at Colossians 1: 13-29, we consider Paul’s teaching on the supremacy of Christ. We look at the significance of this teaching for us today.

An introduction to Colossians

In today’s message, the first in a mini-series ‘Ancient texts – modern application’ reading Paul’s letter to the Colossians, Leo Newell introduces the series and unpacks Colossians 1: 1-14. Two things become evident – the necessity of offering encouragement and the need to pray.
