Jesus calls us to make disciples. All of us, without exception, can follow Jesus’ command right where we live, in the context of our immediate surroundings. This could be in school, in the workplace, with our friends, or even in the privacy of our own home! Every church member can ask, “Where I am, and with what I’ve been given, how can I honour Christ in seeking to make disciples right here, right now? Local mission is necessary and is the most natural manifestation of Chri
Jesus as the prophet can be seen in the character of Gandalf. Gandalf paints an applicable picture of both the biblical prophet and of Jesus the ultimate prophet. The wizard’s death, resurrection and transfiguration all point to Christ. Like Jesus, Gandalf comes with a message which calls others to respond, to live in hope for truth and goodness. Gandalf is seen as a fulfilment of a work that only he could bring to completion, echoing the unique role of Christ as the ultimate prophet.

Jordan "I'm preparing and I'm studying and I'm doing things to hopefully help people I haven't even met yet." Excitement about future possibilities can distract us from what God is doing now.

Dr. Cindy Brown urges us to listen to and love the world as God loves the world. As we interact with the news, let us look past the headlines to where the Spirit wants to bring the Gospel to meet the needs of the world and move past ‘hashtag’ trends to a deeper understanding as people of the Kingdom of God.
Peter McDowell is our new Lecturer in Missiology, so he took a moment out of his preparing for teaching for us to ask him a few questions. So how are you? I'm good, it’s good to be here. It feels like my wife and I have done a lot of different things in a lot of different places, but at each point we look at what’s coming next. For me, teaching has always been a vocation. I like sharing with groups, and helping people (and myself) learn, grow and develop. So this feels

Post Postmodern? What theological challenges face the next generation and how are they responding? Dr Cindy Brown will help us explore how young adults of the millennial and generation z age groups view realities like suffering, compassion, truth and justice. How do their preferences, values and needs impact their view of God, what it means to be human and whether or not community matters? What might these trends mean at both a personal andKeep Reading
There are some stories in the bible that we know very well, having heard them from Sunday school onwards. This familiarity can sometimes be a problem, as we can lose the ability to be challenged or inspired by them. How do we read such stories well? As an example, let us think about a very well-known story: David and Goliath in 1 Samuel 17. One key question to ask in reading the story is why David acted the way that he did. He is introduKeep Reading
‘Every single person who ever lived is personally familiar with fear. It is an inescapable feature of earthly life….Fear is natural to us. We don’t have to learn it. We experience fear and anxiety even before there is any logical reason for them.’ Some level of stress is good. It’s what helps a student submit their assignment by the deadline. But too much stress can cause that same student to sink into a debKeep Reading
The story of the conquest of Canaan in Joshua is a central part of the biblical story of God’s salvation. However for many Christians, the portrayal of God in the conquest is one of the most difficult issues in understanding and using the Bible in the modern world. How can the picture of God commanding Israel to slaughter the Canaanites and show no mercy (Deut. 7:2; cf. 20:15-18) be reconciled with the picture of God in Christ who loved theKeep Reading
In his provocative little book entitled The Christian Mind, Harry Blamires wrote, half a century ago, "The Christian mind sees human life and human history held in the hands of God. It sees the whole universe sustained by his power and his love. It sees the natural order as dependent upon the supernatural order, time as contained within eternity. It sees this life as an inconclusive experience, preparing us for another; this world as a tempoKeep Reading
