Second Nature: Prayer

Second Nature: Prayer

Many of us acknowledge the importance of prayer to Christian faith, but how much of a priority do we give it in our day to day lives? This talk was given at the beginning of Prayer Week 2019 at Highgrove Church, and is intended to both encourage and to challenge us to make prayer a priority.

Second Nature: Accountability

Second Nature: Accountability

Our faith is personal but not private. How do we live accountable lives in community that give people permission to stick their nose in our spiritual business?

Second Nature: Rhythm

Second Nature: Rhythm

We see in nature different cycles and rhythms. When we try to work against these rhythms, things start to breakdown. What rhythms to our lives do we need to practice so that our lives work best?

Thanksgiving Service

Thanksgiving Service

How do you reconcile belief in a good God with serious disease or illness?

Diagnosed with leukaemia (ALL) when he was 6 years old, John Clarke finished his three and a half years of chemotherapy treatment in November 2018. We were delighted to hold a special Thanksgiving Service to celebrate the end of his treatment. This video features some words from John and his sister, the talk given at the service by Ed Marsh and an interview with John's parents, Mike and Naomi.

If you are struggling to reconcile your Christian faith with illness, disease or a challenging time, this video will encourage you. Filled with the sort of practical advice that only comes from "going through the storm", this video reminds us that God is kind and that He can be trusted through even the very hardest of times.

These verses can be a slap in the face to our western lifestyles. How do we tackle them without either melting in a heap of condemnation or glossing over them as not being relevant to us?

Faith Works: Cynical World James 4

James commands us not to judge others. But in a world where ‘everyone’s a critic’ how do we recognise judgement and cynicism and also guard our hearts against it?

Faith Works: The Power of Words

Faith Works: The Power of Words

Words can either build others up or cut them down. What does James have to say about how our faith should change the way we speak to and about others?

Faith and Love in Action: James 2

Faith and Love in Action: James 2

James tells us, “Faith without deeds is dead’. How do we grapple with this statement alongside the belief that we are saved by grace alone? And what implication does it have for the way we live our lives?

Faith Works: James 1

Faith Works: James 1

Talk is cheap! It’s easy to say we have faith in Jesus without putting that faith into action. The book of James is a ‘how to’ manual sharing wisdom to help us live life the way Jesus is calling us to. Let’s put our faith to work!
