Sun 27 Jan

There are many temptations. Could be fruit – Adam in the Garden was tempted with fruit. We would normally see the enticement of fruit as tempting but if it is pleasing to the eye and sweet to taste then we may well yield to the temptation. We all face temptations and they will vary from individual to...

Sun 6 Jan

If you knew someone very important was coming to Wyndham, how would you go about advertising the important meeting. A media blitz on television. A double page spread in the local paper.

As we read through these few verses, we cannot help but notice how many of these prophecies Jesus is fulfilling. On three occasions Jesus is said to have fulfilled prophecy.

Think back to a time before you were a Christian. Now for some that might be challenging because you were raised in a Christian family. For others you were not raised in a Christian family. How did you know what a Christian should do or be?Paul is writing to Titus who is pastoring several churches on Crete...

Sun 18 Nov

There are three letters written by Paul commonly called the Pastoral Letters. They are called pastoral because they are written to pastors – Timothy and Titus. The letters provide teaching on how the church functions and operates. Over the next three Sundays we will study the letter Paul writes to Titus....

The traditional concept of marriage is under attack. Television shows such as “Married At First Sight” and “Bride and Prejudice” not only make a mockery of marriage but undermine the concept of marriage.
