In this service, based on Romans 12: 9-21, Rev Leo invites us to consider how we might live as true believers!
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.
In this service Rev Leo wraps up the series looking at the life of Abraham and Sarah.
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.
A message looking at the challenges and opportunities for the church today. Scripture passages: 1 Corinthians 1: 18 and Matthew 4: 17-22.
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.
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.
In this message we look at Colossians 2 and see that Paul counters some false teaching, encouraging the believers to remain rooted in 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.
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.
What might a Spirit-led church look like. In this message Rev Leo unpacks this question looking at a passage from Galatians 6: 1-10.
