City Group

Sermon-Based City Group Discussions

What should we do in our City Group? Leaders of City Groups in Christ City Church are always faced with this questions. Should we read a book together? Or maybe go through a letter in the Bible? It could be daunting to have to come up with a program every week. It took us a while […]

Mary Magdalene

Mary Magdalene (Film Review & John 20)

This Easter Sunday I will be speaking on John 20, where Jesus appears to Mary Magdalene after he has been raised from the dead. To help me prepare for this, and to be up-to-date with the latest blockbuster, I went to see the film Mary Magdalene last night with Leanne. So what did we make of […]

Overcoming the fear of group prayer

Overcoming the fear of group prayer

We know that prayer is an important part of our lives as Christians. We also know that it doesn’t necessarily come easily, especially when we talk about praying in a group. There is no denying the power of prayer; the Bible clearly teaches us that (1 John 5:14-15; James 5:16-18) and each of us will […]

Consumer Church

Consumer Church

Many have said that we now live in a consumeristic culture; that is, a culture where the consumers’ needs/desires/preferences dictate everything. In the business world people often say ‘the customer is king’ –  in other words, what the customer wants is more important than anything else. This has had lots of positive results including better […]

Fasting

Why Fast? -7 Mar

What should Christians do to help them connect to God? What are the ‘spiritual rhythms*’ that help us in our relationship with Christ? I think we’re all familiar with the concepts of prayer, church community, Bible study (private and corporate) and singing. And we probably also would include financial giving in that as we know […]

Annual General Meeting

An invitation to the AGM (by Justin Anderson) – 18 Feb

I’m inviting you all to the Annual General Meeting of Christ City Church. Are you excited? No? It sounds boring, doesn’t it? All about finances and stuff. Shouldn’t church be about people and God, rather than euros and cents? The church should be reaching people’s hearts, not people’s wallets! On first glance there could be […]

Philippians - Finding Joy

Philippians – Finding Joy

What better way to start 2018 than studying a letter all about joy! Paul is writing from a prison; is being slandered by those outside the prison; is addressing a church struggling with unity with a few of its own hostile enemies; and he writes them a letter which is all about joy! Joy pervades […]
