Clash Of Kingdoms Series

Resurrection and The Coming Kingdom

Kent Martin - 27-March-2016

As the last supper ends, Jesus – about to face betrayal, his trial, his death – looks beyond it all, and makes his promise to the disciples: “the next time we drink like this will be in my Fathers Kingdom”.

Blood Friday: Betrayal, Sacrifice & the Way of True Cleansing

Ian Martin - 25-March-2016

In Matthew 27, Judas, the Pharisees, and Pontius Pilate all wanted to “wash their hands” of responsibility for Jesus’ blood. Each of us also searches for a way to be cleansed from the guilt of sin. But only through Jesus’ self-sacrifice on the cross can the blood of his betrayal be turned into a blood of cleansing.

Don’t Be Daft

Mike Redding - 20-March-2016

What does it mean to be foolish? What does it need to be wise? Do these things mean the same now as in Jesus time? The Clash of Kindgoms continues with Mike Redding looking the parable of the ten virgins.

The Wedding Feast

Timon Robins - 18-March-2016

Weddings are great. So when invited to a wedding why wouldn’t you want to go? Timon looks at the parable of the wedding feast as told in Matthew chapter 22.

Who is the greatest?

Jason Carvalho - 13-March-2016

The clash of the Kingdoms is clearly be seen as Jesus teaches His disciples: The kingdom of the world says it’s our strength, who we can step over, who we can step on to get to the top, how we can wrestle and fight; but Jesus takes a child as his picture of greatness. Its a radical challenge to our understanding of what it means to be great.

Ourselves on the altar

Gordon Hickson - 11-March-2016

We are not called be people who just merge into our culture, we are called to be people who stand up, put our heads up, give ourselves to God, and then we get our thinking transformed.

Kingdom Force, part 4

Gordon Hickson - 11-March-2016

A training day with Gordon Hickson, talking about God welding people together in a relational way, so that something of him will reflect from them: church is family; the Kingdom is family business. The only way that the world is going to know Jesus will be if we let that Kingdom force fuse us together: “that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.” (John 17:21)

The Net

Billy Glover - 06-March-2016

Matthew 13:47-50

Great Value

Jimmy Weild - 04-March-2016

The idea of a treasure so great that it is worth any price may seem fantastic, but this is how Jesus describes the Kingdom of Heaven. This treasure not only becomes real to us but it also has the ability to alter a man or woman’s path in life to the extent that they are willing to sell all they have to gain it.

The Mustard Seed Kingdom

Chris Servante - 28-February-2016

How does the Kingdom recognise and release our potential? Are we seeing growth in our life? Is our life aligned with the purpose of the Kingdom? An in depth look at this short yet meaningful parable-Matt 13:31-32

The Wheat and the Tares

Steven Williams - 26-February-2016

The Quiet Kingdom: It Matters How You Listen (Matt 13)

Ian Martin - 21-February-2016

The Kingdom of Heaven is easily missed. Unlike human kingdoms of force, it is advanced organically like the sowing of seeds. The seed is always effective, either in judgment or in fruit. But what makes the difference is the soil: how our hearts receive the message. The only crop that counts is the one that bears fruit. (Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23)

Who will inherit the Kingdom?

Timon Robins - 19-February-2016

Matthew 7 contains maybe some of the most challenging words in the Gospel: “Not everyone who says to me ‘Lord, Lord’ will enter the kingdom of heaven”. So who is it who will enter the Kingdom of Heaven?

Treasure Hunt – What does our heart seek most?

Kent Martin - 14-February-2016

This third sermon in our 12-week “Clash of Kingdoms” series, based on the gospel of Matthew, explores how Christians’ right and radical relationship to possessions and money requires we have a singular heart, a counter-cultural faith, and a one-track mind.

The Availability of a Kingdom Life

Jason Carvalho - 12-February-2016

Who is blessed? Focusing on the beattitudes, we want to look at how we are truly blessed by Christ in his kingdom now, and how that produces a new Kingdom life for us personally, relationally, and vocationally. (Matthew 5:1-10)

The Kingdom of Heaven

Mary-Alice Martin - 07-February-2016

Introducing a new series of talks, Clash of Kingdoms, focusing on the Kingdom of Heaven, Mary Alice Martin begins by looking at John the Baptist’s proclamation of the coming of the Messiah from Matthew 3.
