Seminar – Going Deeper: Exodus

Seminar – Going Deeper: Exodus – 27 May

In scripture, the term “covenant” is a vitally important one.  It refers to the ways in which God relates to his people; his promises, commands, gifts, and grace towards them. However, the idea of covenant has elicited quite a few differing positions among theologians over the years.  For example, how many covenants has God made […]

Faith & Work

Seminar – Faith & Work (May 20th)

One of the greatest failures of the church is to create a divide between the sacred and secular; that is to mark off certain activities as sacred (prayer, bible-reading, mass attendance etc) and certain activities as secular (work, sport, music, sex, money etc). This then creates a second and equally devastating failure that also plagues […]

Exodus

Exodus: God Is Here

The book of Exodus is a very famous, exciting and dramatic book. Why? Well there is Moses and the burning bush, there is Pharaoh and the ten plagues, there is the escape from Egypt and the parting of the Red Sea, there is manna from heaven and a pillar of fire in the sky, there […]

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 […]

Womens Seminar

Women’s Seminar – 11 Mar

How often do we allow our fears to hold us back in our daily lives? “Oh I can’t…” “They’re so much better at it than me…” “I don’t have anything to offer…” Our voices are not heard and our gifts are limited when we give way to fear and apathy. Whilst this is not unique […]

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 […]
