Thieves and the Faithful

Thieves and the Faithful Art Work

November 22, 2022 | By: Pastor Efrem Buckle | Scripture: Malachi 3:6-18

If the Lord were to review your bank statements for the past year, would he consider you a thief or faithful? What difference does Jesus make to God's expectation of a Tithe (a tenth) of his people's income? Listen in for guidance on how best to land those considerations


Unfaithfulness is a Family Affair

Unfaithfulness is a Family Affair Art Work

November 6, 2022 | By: Denzel Gaisie | Scripture: Malachi 2:10-16

In Malachi's day, unfaithfulness and disloyalty spread within the family of God, destroying marriages and corrupting worship. Unfaithfulness has spiritual and social implications that threaten the unity of God's people. Yet God's people (then and now) are reminded that they are one people under one God and Father and in Him, they should be faithful to one another.


Weak Leaders, Weak People

Weak Leaders, Weak People Art Work

October 30, 2022 | By: Richard Thomas | Scripture: Malachi 2:1-9

Do we have the right idea of what Christians leaders need to be in order to serve the Lord faithfully? Being faithful to the Lord in a society that is falling away from him will mean that we will be unpopular and counter-cultural. As Malachi hones in on the priest, he highlights how vital their role is, if, the people of Judea are going to retain their identity as his people.


Gods Unfailing Love

Gods Unfailing Love Art Work

October 16, 2022 | By: Bertram Owete | Scripture: Malachi 1:1-5

When it feels like God's promises are not being fulfilled and there's temptation to call it quits, what is there for believers to hold on to? At the start of several proclamations through Malachi, God testifies to His unfailing love for Israel, as the sure hope for Israel, as the sure hope for Israel and all nations.


From Emmanuel to Eternity (Church Building)

From Emmanuel to Eternity (Church Building) Art Work

October 9, 2022 | By: Robert Prendergast |

The Church from Exile to Emmanuel

The Church from Exile to Emmanuel Art Work

October 9, 2022 | By: Richard Thomas | Scripture: Nehemiah 8:1-18

Has modern innovation in education and technology made attending church irrelevant? As we look at the history of Israel, we see that without the hearing and following of the word of God, his people descend into idolatry. In Nehemiah, we see how the returning exiles try to overcome past failure by assembling around the word of God being declared by Ezra and taught by the Levites


The Church from Exodus to Exile

The Church from Exodus to Exile Art Work

October 9, 2022 | By: Richard Thomas | Scripture: Hebrews 12:18-29

How does the New Testament church relate to the Old Testament? The mass assembly of the Israelites at Sinai (Exodus 19) was the first of its kind, and one that completely overwhelmed the senses of those who attended. Should the modern church look back at this event and try to learn from it? The writer of Hebrews believes that there are better realities to explore than those experiences of the ancient church which we need to tap into.


Eternity to Eden

Eternity to Eden Art Work

September 12, 2022 | By: Efrem Buckle | Scripture: Genesis 1:1-3

Some start at the beginning when seeking to answer the question 'why church?'. But did you know the real answer starts BEFORE the beginning? Listen in to see how come?

Introduction: To One of the Least of These Art Work

September 11, 2022 | By: Richard Thomas | Scripture: Matthew 25:31-46

How do we establish a healthy ecclesiology? By looking through The Bible, we will begin to see God has integrated 'the assembly' into his plan for establishing the the faithfulness and maturity of his people.

September 4, 2022 | By: Richard Thomas | Scripture: Hosea 14:1-9

What prevents the Israelites from enjoying a close relationship with the Lord? The final call again is that Israel would repent and turn back to the Lord.

Is All Fair in Love and War Art Work

July 30, 2022 | By: Richard Thomas | Scripture: Hosea 13:1-16

Are we to be blamed if our heart does not desire the Lord? Hosea writes to Israel and to us all that we remain responsible for reciprocating God's love and commitment to us.


A harvest of barrenness

A harvest of barrenness Art Work

July 30, 2022 | By: Alan Black | Scripture: Hosea 10:1-15

What are you investing in your future? Hosea has some home truths for Israel who believe their future is looking bright. Their investment in the idol calves and king and military will come to nothing as they have not looked to the Lord first.


What are you like continued

What are you like continued Art Work

June 19, 2022 | By: Richard Thomas |

Has anyone made a comparison of your behaviour with something less than flattering? Hosea gives Israel an uncompromising view of their behaviour towards the Lord in the hope that it will correct them. Maybe we might also identify some of our own behaviour towards the Lord in this striking text.


What are you like

What are you like Art Work

June 19, 2022 | By: Felix Aremo |

Have you ever noticed how someone can plead their undying love one moment only for it to come to a short end the next moment. Hosea exposes the shallowness of Israel's love for the Lord. For all their outward display of loyalty to the Lord they are inwardly despising him

June 19, 2022 | By: Gareth Jones |

Relationship Rekindled Art Work

May 8, 2022 | By: Bertram Owete | Scripture: Hosea 2:14-23

Why speak of a future with those who grievously offend us? God demonstrated His unrelenting love in declaring His resolve to rekindle the love of his unfaithful people Israel.


Intro and Hosea Family Portrait

Intro and Hosea Family Portrait Art Work

May 3, 2022 | By: Pastor Efrem Buckle | Scripture: Hosea 1:1-11

Did you ever hear the song 'In Love with a Stripper?' This could have been the soundtrack to Hosea's marriage, but worse. As we begin this new series we learn of God's relentless, rescuing love in the face of persistent rejection.


The Resurrection that Frees us from Sin

The Resurrection that Frees us from Sin Art Work

May 3, 2022 | By: Richard Thomas | Scripture: Romans 6:1-14

SOMEBODY HAS TO PAY Art Work

April 15, 2022 | By: Efrem Buckle | Scripture: John 11:49-52
