"Goodness And Glory" by Nigel Clark
For many of us when the word glory is used we either have concepts of warriors returning after great victories in battle or vague notions of ethereal concepts which perhaps bring beautiful sunsets to mind, glorious views across wide open country, the stars in the night sky…
As Christians we can sometimes end up almost as vague in our thinking when we try to consider the glory of God, what it is and how to try to explain it!
In this message the glory of God is made accessible for any who desire to see it, experience it and participate in it.

"Yes, But!" by Pastor Charles Fleming
The Israelite King David knew what it was to experience great pressure and distress in his life.
Many of the songs and poems that he wrote express the full gamut of the emotions associated with those experiences and yet no matter how depressed David is at the beginning of these songs he always ends up extolling God's character and the greatness of His steadfast love.
In this message from Psalm 59 David's life is under threat, doesn't that ring true during these times in which we live?
Many people feel that their life, or the lives of their loved ones, or their jobs and livelihoods are under threat due to the COVID pandemic.
But in the midst of all the life threatening pressures David experiences he pauses for reflection and contemplates the fact that the God who laughs at His enemies must therefore be sovereign over all, making Him a trustworthy refuge for all who turn to His steadfast love, which means that like David we can sing aloud even in the midst of our troubles.

"The Look Of Faith" by Pastor Charles Fleming
Can faith be seen? If so, how?
In the midst of difficulty God calls His Church to shine even brighter, during the COVID pandemic Christians, among many others all over the country, and indeed the world, have been busy involved in acts of kindness and compassion, giving up time and energy on behalf of others.
Sometimes though, the hardest thing in difficult times isn't helping others it's maintaining a grateful outlook, especially if we feel anxious or fearful.
So, is it unreasonable of God to expect His people to praise and thank Him in every situation?
And, how do we with all integrity praise and thank God when we're tired, despondent, anxious or grieving and basically just don't feel like praising?
This message from the book of Psalms will lift your spirits and encourage a faith-filled response of praise no matter how you feel.

"The Just Shall Live By Faith" by Simon Longworth-Riggs
In the midst of all the confusion, frustration, anxiety and upheaval that we are living through at the moment God's question to us all is, 'Where are you in the midst of it all?'
Why is He asking that? Is it because He doesn't know our whereabouts? Is it because He's lost us?
To find out all you have to do is listen to this message.

"Touch Hunger" by Pastor Charles Fleming
Continuing our series looking at principles from scripture which help us make good decisions as we face the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.
A recent survey revealed that physical touch promotes health and well-being, it's scientifically proven that touch stimulates the production of chemicals in the human body which alleviates stress and tension therefore helping us deal better with anxiety. Jesus often touched people to make them confident that He accepted them, especially those who were seen as untouchable by the rest of their society. How then, in a time when we are required to socially distance due to the pandemic, and more people than ever are feeling isolated and alone, are we going to be able to touch peoples lives in a meaningful and effective way that gives them the assurance they need at this time?

"Don’t Stop!" by Nigel Turner
Continuing our present series looking at principles from scripture which help us make good decisions as we face the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.
What a year 2020 has been thus far! The Coronavirus crisis has come to dominate everyones thinking in one way or another; some people seem to be in outright denial regarding the reality of the COVID pandemic right through to those who are just hunkering down to 'wait it out' hoping to emerge into a world free from its threat. Wherever you find yourself in the scale of responses to the COVID crisis the key thing is to recognise that although everything may seem changed God remains the same and He wants to equip you to move forward in life with hope and enthusiasm for your future, this message is all about that.

"He Is No Man’s Debtor" by Pastor Charles Fleming
Continuing our latest series looking at principles from scripture which help us to make good decisions as we face the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Did you know that it's impossible to out-give God?
Sometimes, when circumstances are challenging, we can feel that the wisest thing to do is to concentrate on gathering and accumulating the things that we think we will need to get us through - you probably remember going into shops at the beginning of the pandemic and the shelves being bare! Why? Because our human survival instinct says that we must get as much as we can as fast as we can and stockpile it to see us through, it's human nature! But the prophet Haggai throws down a challenge to the Jews returning from exile, in spite of the lack, in spite of the shortage of food, in spite of derelict housing, consider your ways, concentrate on building up God's house for His glory and then see Him provide for you.

"Keeping Perspective" by Nigel Clark
Continuing our latest series looking at principles from scripture which help us to make good decisions as we face the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It's easy to end up bewildered by all the different versions of what's going on at the moment, there are seemingly endless speculations and theories being circulated. How do we know which ones to take notice of, or which ones are true?
In this message Nigel gives some spiritual but very practical pointers for keeping our perspective and remaining anxiety free and assured of God's goodness.

"Stay On Point!" by Pastor Charles Fleming
Continuing our new series looking at principles from scripture which help us to make good decisions as we face the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Maybe you, like many have been amazed at how many different interpretations of the COVID-19 regulations there have been? Perhaps you've been confused by all the differing versions? You may have felt the same regarding all the teaching coming from different church groups over the last 6 months, some of it attempting to predict the end of the pandemic; others declaring that the pandemic is the judgment of God on humanity! Thankfully a lot of it has been to encourage God's people to use this time well and to allow the Holy Spirit to work more deeply, surrendering in a fuller way to the Lordship of Christ.
This message pulls no punches and presents with great clarity why, as a society we get so confused so quickly, why we're so resistant to truth, and why we struggle to comply to the simplest of instructions, no matter how much they might benefit us in the long run.
