Latest Talks Online

God’s word, the Bible, is the basis of our beliefs. Here we find out what God is like and how we can know him through Jesus. Each Sunday as part of our gathering someone gives a talk from the Bible. This takes us back to the source of our faith and reminds us of the Jesus we follow. As we grapple with how we understand the Bible within its own context and work out how to follow Jesus in our own world we discover the word comes alive to us and God, by His Spirit, speaks into our lives.
