The books of 1 and 2 Samuel follow the biography of David, Israel’s greatest king. A king who began his life as an obscure shepherd boy but became a warrior who brought rival nations to their knees. A king described as “a man after God’s own heart”, writing worship songs that have been sung throughout the centuries. A king whose personal sins devastated not only his own family, but Gods chosen nation. In triumph and in tragedy, this earthly king points forward to a greater king to come.Life group resource

Writing from Rome, Peter writes to a group of churches to encourage the faith and hope they have in Christ. Despite the pressures they were experiencing, he continues to remind them of the great story that they are part of, the story of God’s rescuing work through the people of Israel, the redeeming work of Christ, the call to be the new people of God and the eternal hope they have in Christ. As these early Christians navigated what it looked like to be part of a new community, Peter encourages them to continue to live with a radical counter-cultural obedience.Life group resources Wallpaper 1 Wallpaper 2 Wallpaper 3 Wallpaper 4

This series will unpack the seven I Am statements of Jesus in John’s gospel to give everyone confidence in His divinity and identify how to receive the promises that Jesus offers to everyone who believes. Jesus’ “I Am” statements have a radical inclusivity in His invitation (whoever, anyone) and a clear exclusivity in that He is the only one that can deliver what we need. This is a series with a clear call to believe in Jesus as the Son of God for salvation and an invitation to experience the life of Jesus every day.Life group leader resource

Jesus was rejected by many he came to save. This is the sad reality of Christmas. Truth is not always welcome in this sin-scarred world. But Jesus came to overthrow sin in our lives and give us the right to become much-loved children of God. As we pause to reflect on the promises of Jesus and receive His reign in our hearts, we are empowered to respond by bringing His Kingdom rule to the people around us who are yet to receive His love, joy, hope and peace. Our prayer is that as we prepare room for Christ in our hearts, we might prepare others to receive Jesus as their King.

Every family has values that shape the way they live and influence their relationships with one another and the world around them. In some families, values are clearly articulated and constantly reinforced. And in other families, values are unspoken but easily identified by others looking in.
