I love the show Grand Designs. I love watching people embark on ambitious projects to renovate or rebuild some amazing piece of history. They have a grand vision and complex plans, they put together a tight budget and an even tighter timetable on completing the work and we watch it all unfold on the screen,

Date 17th November 2013  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Acts 1:1-11; Ephesians 1:15-23

Where is Jesus now? Do you ever think about that question or is it something that concerns only theologians? Is it one of those questions that has no real bearing on how I live today? You may not have thought much about the Ascension, but it is an important event in the Christian calendar and

Elijah: Punishment, Prayer & Proclamation

Date 17th November 2013  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage 1 Kings 18:40-46

Have you ever wondered: if God is sovereign, controls all things and lets history pan out exactly as he wants to, why do we need to pray? Do our prayers have any ability to change God’s mind or to change the course of events? If not, what’s the point of praying, seeing ‘what will be

Elijah: Who is the Real God? – NO SERMON

Date 10th November 2013  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage 1 Kings 18: 16-46

Talking about our materialistic and consumer-driven culture, an author named Krishan Kumar says: “In this simulated world, images become objects, rather than reflecting them, reality becomes Hyper-Reality. In Hyper-Reality it is no longer possible to distinguish the imaginary from the real… the true from the false.” In so many ways this phenomenon isn’t new. While

In a world where the very idea of truth is questioned and claims to know the truth are seen as arrogance, it’s possible to downplay the importance of gospel truth. Sure the truth of the basic gospel matters, but how much beyond that? But the Bible is clear, truth matters. Why does it matter? And
