This week, Mark kicks-off our new Lentern series: The Way through the Wild. He speaks about how Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, was led into the wilderness and tempted by the devil. Although Jesus was the Son of God, He was an obedient son, and the Father's word was his meat and drink. He resisted temptation without the benefit of His own omnipotence, showing himself to be the perfect obedient man.
Brittany wraps-up our sub-series: An Ancient Vision for the Church in the 21st Century. Just like the church in Antioch, God wants to do a new thing and His vision is bigger than ours. What would it look like for us to be open to what He wants for us, our church, our city and beyond?

As Mark launches our final Follow Me series - I Am Here, Follow Me celebrating Advent; we take a look at how the Magi, in obedience to the Holy Spirit, followed a star to Jerusalem in search a King, fulfilling the promise of the Day of the Lord and challenging the moral order of their time. As we live in a culture of competing moral orders we are challenged to be a people who bow our knee to Jesus, the King who has a different moral order to what our culture tells us.
