The surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus
Sun Jun 16 2024
Philippians
Matt Alexander

Paul's knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ surpassed any achievement in this world. Are we, like Paul, desperate to know Christ and to receive the righteousness from God that is by faith?
Philippians 3:1-11

Sun May 05 2024
Philippians
Matt Alexander

Our focus this morning is verse 21, which could be described as a motto verse for Paul's life: "For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain." What does Paul mean, and how can we live this way?
Philippians 1:18-26

Advancing the gospel
Sun Apr 28 2024

In spite of Paul's imprisonment, the gospel is advancing. As we investigate how this is happening, may we catch Paul's passion for sharing the good news about Jesus.

Worship or waste?
Sun Mar 17 2024

Exodus 20:15

You shall not commit adultery
Sun Feb 04 2024
Exodus

The attitude of our society towards adultery is very different from that of the ancient world. How are we to obey this commandment in the midst of a highly sexualised society?

What's in a Christmas cracker?
Sun Dec 17 2023

Waiting in hope
Sun Dec 10 2023

Broken
Sun Dec 03 2023

Sun Jun 25 2023
Exodus
Matt Alexander

As we continue to reflect on the plague narrative, we see 1) The deceitfulness of sin, 2) the darkness of God's judgement, 3) the provision of light and life, and 4) the missional purpose of the plagues.
Exodus 9:1 - 10:29

Swimming against the tide
Sun Jun 18 2023
1 Peter
Matt Alexander

Peter was writing to Christians who were very conscious that they were swimming against the tide of their culture. He calls them to love one another, to love their enemies, and most importantly, to love the Lord Jesus Christ.

What's in a name?

Matt Alexander

This morning we are starting a short series on the theme of Confidence that runs parallel to the London Institute of Contemporary Christianity's Lent Devotional series. We will be reflecting this morning on how we can be confident Christians as a result of being convinced
Romans 8:31-39

Exodus 3:1-12
Sun Feb 19 2023
Exodus
Matt Alexander

The Lord reveals himself to Moses by means of the burning bush. This passage speaks to us both of God's identity as He reveals Himself to Moses, and our identity, as we ask the same question that Moses asked: "Who am I...?"
Exodus 3:1-12

Exodus 2:11-25
Sun Feb 12 2023
Exodus
Matt Alexander

We unpack four contrasts in this passage: 1) Comfort or Discomfort, 2) Man's way or God's way, 3) Stand up or Stay seated and 4) Forgotten or Remembered.
Exodus 2:11-25

Exodus 1:22 - 2:10
Sun Feb 05 2023
Exodus
Matt Alexander

We will see how this story of Moses' birth points us both backwards to God's work of creation and deliverance in Genesis, and forwards to the Saviour of the world and to the God who is able to work for good in the midst of evil situations.
Exodus 1:22 - 2:10

Exodus 1:15-21
Sun Jan 29 2023

Matthew 28:16-20
Sun Jan 15 2023
Matthew
Matt Alexander

Matthew presents us with the conclusion to his gospel in a passage that has been called "The Great Commission". We will consider four questions: Who is it for? What is the basis of it? What does it consist of? And, what guarantee or reassurance is provided by Jesus?
Matthew 28:16-20

Matthew 28:1-15
Sun Jan 08 2023
Matthew
Matt Alexander

Matthew presents evidence for the truth of the resurrection and exposes a lie that was spread in his day and is still in circulation today. How should we respond to the claim that Jesus rose again on the third day? What difference should it make in our lives?

New year's message
Sun Jan 01 2023
Enoch Osezuwa

This morning we welcome Enoch Osezuwa to bring us a message of encouragement for the new year. He leads us through seven new things that we can experience in this new year: new birth, a new song, a new name, a new commandment, a new tongue, a new spirit and a new thing.

Simeon's song
Sun Dec 25 2022

Acts 3:1-16
Sun Oct 09 2022

Sun May 29 2022

Matthew 22:34-46
Sun May 22 2022
Matthew
Matt Alexander

This is the final instalment in the battle of the theological heavyweights that we've seen in chapter 22. Jesus both simplifies the Law and the Prophets in two short commandments and complexifies the Pharisees' understanding of the Messiah's identity. The key question is: "What do you think about the Christ?" (v. 42)
Matthew 22:34-46

Matthew 22:23-33
Sun May 15 2022

Matthew
Matt Alexander

In this morning's service we will be starting a new series looking at the gospel of Matthew. We will be taking a look at the genealogy of Jesus in Matthew 1:1-17...what is the relevance of a big, long list of names? We will also be led in prayer by Kenny Cormack and share in an interview with Jayden Alexander. Welcome!
