We love it when our own people or our great guest speakers bring a specific and timely message from God's word to us - this is a collection of those messages from 2014.

Part 1: New Beginnings - A New Start

by David Fowler January 5, 2014 10:30am

What where your headlines for 2013? What will 2014 hold? Some things are easy to predict, but most of the headlines we have little or no concept of yet. The Christmas story did not stop on Christmas day and the same God that sustained that teenage mum holds out the same promise to us. A new start with an ancient promise - and surely I will be with you always.

Part 2: New Beginnings - New Life, New Ministry

by David Fowler January 12, 2014 10:30am

2 Corinthians 5:11 - 6:1

Do our actions draw other back to God? Our ministry is how we serve God and one another. Our job, if we love Jesus is to participate in any way and every way in reconciling other to God. Are we compelled to talk about Jesus and the good news? This is not an exclusive club for as scripture says 'one died for all'. The all inclusive love of Christ compels us to share the truth with wide spread arms.

Part 3: For Dangerous Times

by Ellie Keene January 19, 2014 10:30am

For times of being surrounded, for times when there are threats and for times when there is trouble. Trust in Christ.

Part 4: Who can God use?

by Dave Oakley February 16, 2014 10:30am

Nehemiah 3

Ultimately to make things happen, it takes people and God uses all different types of people in his building work today. What has God put on your heart? More importantly, what are you going to do about it? (Aim Lower Sound Byte www.max7.org)

Part 5: Gifts for the Frontline

by David Fowler March 23, 2014 10:30am

1 Corinthians 12: 12-31

What do we chase? What are our goals in life? Is it chasing reward without effort or are we willing to take a great gamble and decide that we are not just going to do self service but rather do real service. In serving others it can be the best and worst of our life experiences but one that greatly pleases God.

Part 6: Being friends of God

by Julian Gittings May 25, 2014 10:30am

Whilst we can all quite easily change what we look like on the outside we struggle to change what we are like on the inside. Our problem - human nature, greed, selfishness, envy, jealousy. It wasn't always like this. When God created man and the world he created it perfect. There is a remedy, God's son, Jesus Christ.

Part 7: Fathers

by George Verwer June 15, 2014 10:30am

Philippians 4: 8-10

In these complex, dark and difficult days, keep your focus on the Lord, to be careful in what you say, especially just passing on more negative things. Be praying Fathers, forgiven, conscious of our forgiveness, grace awakened, honest, learning, loving and generous. God is moving more now than at any point in history - are we ready to be a part of it?

Part 8: Finding God in the Darkest Places

by Hannah Flint June 29, 2014 10:30am

When our faith is knocked its best to go back to what is God like? What will get us through is hope and the knowledge of Gods goodness and the joy of finding him in the darkest places. The pressure is not on our shoulders to carry the weight of the worlds suffering but to follow in the fathers footsteps. God is already at work, he already has a plan, he needs us to follow his path to work towards his ends. Where is God leading you?

Part 9: Getting a Life

by Derek Stringer September 7, 2014 10:30am

Ecclesiastes 11: 7 - 12: 14

Jesus said "I come that you might have life and have it more abundantly". What does this actually mean? What is involved in that so that we don't just live in length but also in depth.

Part 10: The Word of God

by Derek Stringer September 7, 2014 6:30pm

Luke 8: 4-15

Do we realise that every time we open the bible we are opening a miracle? Because God is a talkative God and God will be saying things to us so that we can think his thoughts after reading his Word and if we feed our faith with the facts the doubts die of starvation.

Part 12: Living Generously

by David Fowler & Dave Oakley November 2, 2014 10:30am

1 Timothy 6: 17-18

Part 13: Remembrance

by David Fowler November 9, 2014 10:30am

Remembrance Sunday Service

Part 14: The Waiting Game

by David Fowler December 7, 2014 10:30am

Luke 2: 21-38

Simeon & Anna waited patiently for many years for the birth of the Lord Jesus. When his parents bring him to the temple they are each ready to thank God for his salvation and to broadcast the fact that Jesus is the One!
