From the series 'The Real Deal - Part 2' - In the Eye of the Storm (Hebrews 10:19-39)
As Christians, we may not (yet) face the outward persecution in the same way others do around the world, but the battle for the mind can be just as vicious and often harder to resist, but resist we must. These verses call the Christian to persevere (10:36) in all areas of life. How do we live in the eye of the storm?

From the series 'The Real Deal - Part 2' - New Life, Not More Effort (Hebrews 10:1-18)
We are starting a new series by finishing an old one! We are finishing the book of Hebrews and we are starting by digging into what Jesus' sacrifice means for us as believers. Do we struggle with the temptation for ongoing religious activity as a means to earn God’s approval? Our thinking may drift towards other churches, but even as evangelicals we have a propensity to do this, even in ways we may not have even considered.

From the series 'Cruciformed - Discipleship shaped by the Cross' - The Resurrection (Mark 15:40-16:1-8)
From this passage we will be unpacking the significance of the resurrection. It is also important for us because if we are convinced that Jesus is the Son of God and long-awaited Saviour, then our lives should reflect our faith in daily obedience and faithfulness to him.
From the series 'Cruciformed - Discipleship shaped by the Cross' - The Cross (Mark 15:15-39)
At the very beginning of Mark 1 it says…’The beginning of the good news about Jesus the Messiah,[a] the Son of God…’ Mark 1:1a. Why is the cross of Jesus good news for us? This whole book has been leading to this point and we are about to read it’s conclusion. Mark’s description in this passage was without comment or interpretation but just as it happened. This final period of Jesus’ ministry…in his suffering, his death and resurrection.
