July 9: New Spaces With God

“You will never do a new thing with God with your eyes looking back on the past.” Ian Allen

So often with God when we are in a place of need we go back to the places, activities or even attitudes where we had the strongest encounters meetings in the past. While there is some benefit to doing there is also a danger of being too focused on the method instead of the person. This week Ian Allen looks at the human tendency to default to the ruts in our spiritual walks and not going to the new thing God is leading us into.

Dec 18: Human Concerns

Merely Human Concerns.

Drawing from Matthew 16, Ian Allen draws out the question of “What does it mean to have our minds set on human concerns?” By confessing that Jesus was the Christ, Peter was showing his mind was able to pick up what came from God. Yet straight afterwards it seems something shifted and he lost that clarity. What was it that shifted? How do we keep our minds on “the things of God”? Let’s explore this together and don’t forget you can listen via your favourite podcast app and remember to share on your favourite social network.

Oct 23: Re-Alignment

This week Mark Rogan brings a prophetic talk on the times of change and re-adjustment that God is bringing not only to our church but maybe also into your life as well.

See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland. (Isaiah 43:19. NIV)

The times of change and readjustment come and often we need to choose how we deal with them. When God brings the new into our lives can we leave the baggage and embrace what He is bringing?
