What is holiness?

In this talk, Deborah Marsh explores holiness and what it means to live as God’s holy people.

  • In a culture that isn’t rooted in Christ, how do we live as Christians?

  • What does holiness look like in practice?

From practical tips about how to choose what we watch on TV to Deborah’s favourite thing to do while on holiday(!!), this talk gives an honest, practical, Biblically-based overview of holiness.

Creed: Jesus Christ

Creed: Jesus Christ

What does it mean to believe in Jesus?

In the second talk of our ‘Creed’ series, Deborah Marsh continues our study of the foundations of Christian faith by speaking about Jesus Christ. Listen as Deborah explains what believing in Jesus means for us all today.

You’ll also hear from two members of the church, Heidi and Dave, about how they came to put their faith in the person of Jesus and the difference it has made to their lives.

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.

Faith Works: Responsibility of Wealth

Faith Works: Responsibility of Wealth

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?

Joshua: Steps of Faith

Joshua: Steps of Faith

Joshua 2: Where does trust in God and the need for for us to be active intersect?

Living as Witnesses: Wonders

Living as Witnesses: Wonders

The book of the Acts of the Apostles could be called the Acts of the Holy Spirit. The spread of the Church documented in its pages is undergirded by ‘signs and wonders’; miracles of healing in particular. How normal should sign and wonders be in our Church life?

How is death defeated?

How is death defeated?

God's rescue plan came to fruition as Jesus is raised from the grave, defeating the power of sin and death! 

Why bread and wine?

Why bread and wine?

Why did Jesus give us communion? This is a chance to teach about the symbolism of the bread and wine, the importance of the new covenant and the links to the Passover and Jesus being our sacrifice. 

Application - what purpose does communion have in the modern, global church, and what impact does it have on us as individuals?

Giving and Keeping

Giving and Keeping

Giving is at the heart of what it is to be a follower of Jesus. Why give and how should we go about it? Watch out for the cracking mother-in-law joke!

True King

True King

In the Old Testament story, human kings feature large. But they all served to point towards the true, perfect, humble King.  This Christmas, how can we recognise again the kingship of Jesus in our lives? 

God Habits: Generosity

God Habits: Generosity

Our God's generous, He gives to all of us. But what about us? How can we develop a habit of generosity to those around us in response to God? 

Confidence in God

Confidence in God

Do we have confidence in who God is, how he works and the life he gives? At the start of this series looking at 2 Corinthians, Paul introduces the book by describing God as 1. God our Father, 2. Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 3. Father of compassion, 4. God of all comfort.

God is relational rather than the more static Greek view, therefore we can have confidence that he loves us as a Father, he has plans and dreams for our lives, listens to our prayers and speaks to us.
