The Neighbourhood #3 – Anji Barker

Guest speaker, Anji Barker brought an inspirational message on the importance of doing life together with people. The thrust of her sermon was they we should assume that everyone wants to be included, even in their brokenness. We should aim to partner with God in what He is doing in the community by creating different ways to meet people and helping them dream for themselves.

The Neighbourhood #2 – Jody Destry

With a message entitled “10, 000 Reasons”, Jody Destry encourages us to engage in what God is doing in our neighbourhood by allowing Him to open our spiritual eyes to see the people He wants us to help. God’s purpose is always bigger than what we can see with our natural eyes. We are called to nourish people and make a contribution to our neighbourhood. Unpack your suitcase because God has you where He needs you to be.

Titled “First Things First”,¬† Jesse Starr’s message is all about returning to our first love: Jesus.

Immeasurably More #6 – Guest Speaker, Peter McHugh

Peter McHugh’s 2nd message for the day continued on in the theme of unconditional love. What a great message again from Peter about living a life of unconditional love. The true mark of your spirituality is how you love. When we experience and encounter the love of God, we are then encouraged to love the people around us. We must not accept or relate to one another based only according to performance. Christians¬† are encouraged to love through acceptance rather than performance.

“It is not how many years you’ve lived, but how you’ve lived your life.” Thank you to Shereen Barker for sharing her story with us on Sunday morning.
