In the first of our short series on grace, we look at how the grace of God affects our community life together. Acts 11 tells us that when Barnabas visited the growing church in Antioch he ‘saw the grace of God’. What did this look like and how can it help us to be grace-filled communities across Teesside?
Parenting is hard. Period. But Jesus brings His life here too! God understands that parenting will be challenging - remember he has difficult children too! Having a biblical vision for nurturing our kids to adulthood is a responsibility of the whole church family. What we make our focus will ultimately shape their hearts. In the end, we cannot bear the total responsibility. If our children are to have real faith we must lead them on a journey of grasping, receiving and experiencing it for themselves. We need help… lots of help! Jesus brings life to the full.
In this Letter, Gavin encourages us in our worship, both personal and congregational. When we live a life actively choosing to magnify God, it changes everything!
In today’s world, the word ‘temptation’ does not carry the significant weight that it has in the Bible. The concept of temptation is evident from the very first pages of the Bible. In this talk, we look at how Jesus responded to temptation, and how we can learn to battle through temptation by looking at the perfecter of our faith.
How do you think about marriage? Outdated, unimportant or sometimes as worse, the goal of Christian life? Our view of marriage is radically transformed when we understand that God uses it as a parable to point to the passionate, faithful love Jesus has for the Church.
Letting God be God and allowing his Gospel to shape us, results in a life sent with purpose and meaning. The church is God’s glorious plan to reveal His grace and hope to a world in need. Jesus declared His manifesto as He read out these famous words from an ancient scripture as he kicked of His ministry on earth. It was a foresight into what the Kingdom of God could look like through the church. They were life and breath to people who heard…..They still are to us! As you listen to this sermon please consider your part in Gods great jigsaw, your role in the adventure ahead. Thank you Jubilee. You are amazing!
Our God is the most generous, and just like everything else to do with His character, His generosity is holistic and in full measures. This is evident in every page of the Bible and revealed in Jesus Christ. As Christians, we are called to follow this great example. But how do we bring Biblical truth to the culture of “don’t tell me what to do with my money”? In this talk, we’ll take a look at how the earliest followers of Jesus lived generous lives, filled with the Holy Spirit, and lead by their conviction to preach the Gospel and serve the poor.
With summer almost over, Simon gives us a review of some of the exciting things that happened this Summer.
How would you fill out the big question, Life is______? A box of chocolates like Forrest Gump!? Difficult? The weekend? A party? Amino acids?! Jesus said that he has come to bring a richer, deeper, purpose to life. He has come that we may live it out more abundantly. He tells us that there really is more to life than this! That he is the answer to the great struggle that we all grapple with…the struggle between disappointment and hope.
What does joy in the Christian life look like? It is much deeper than what we often consider it to be, and sometimes it can feel like a fight to live in that joy on a daily basis. The gospel is the joy news of Jesus, and it is as we delight in him that we encounter true joy.
In the final talk of our Summer Series, 'God Is', Mekonen, from Eritrea, speaks to us in Tigrynian through the help of a translator on the Holiness of God.
God Provides for all of his children abundantly but sometimes his provision includes answering our prayers in unexpected ways to test our faith. This was definitely the case for Abraham!
The LORD is my shepherd, but how does that really affect us? In our third Summer Sundays talk, four of our young people help us to see from Psalm 23 that God really is our provider, guide and protector.
Have you ever wondered whether God was truthful or not? Has anything ever happened to you that made you question His faithfulness? In the second talk in the Series, Julie Travis talks about God's abounding faithfulness.
Our Summer Series, 'God Is', begins with a look at God's presence throughout history, with the Israelites and with us.
'I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to'. These were parting words of Jesus that shocked His disciples and paved the way for the exploding early church. Today we too experience the fullness of Christianity through the indwelling God who comes to us. How does God the Holy Spirit make real the Gospel? What does He actually do? Why is this sealing so important? How does God want to make me more fruitful, more joyful, more alive? Be filled with the Holy Spirit!
On a return visit to Jubilee, guest speaker, Andy Ball from Turkey, presents a dramatic reconstruction of Jesus' healing of the sick woman who had suffered from bleeding for 12 years. Through this story, we see the miraculous power of the Gospel message to bring restoration and healing to all who are unclean, cast out and weary. Jesus is the hope for us all.
In this talk celebrating Baptism Sunday, Gavin unpacks what it means to be a new creation in Christ. As we give our lives to God we literally become born again, what does this mean for us as individuals?
Have you ever looked around at the state of this world and wondered, 'God why don't you do something?' So did the Israelites!
In this prophetic passage, God tells us what he's doing and calls us to be prepared for 'The Day of the Lord'.
John Hosier is a gifted Bible teacher with over 47 years of pastoral experience. In this talk he encourages us to stand firm in this truth - Surely the Day of the Lord is coming - and how do we live out that reality now?!
