"The Power Of Deference" by Pastor Charles Fleming
What does biblical deference look like?
David deferred to King Saul in the Old Testament, even after he had been anointed by the prophet Samuel to be Saul's successor to the throne of Israel, why? In the new Testament Christians are instructed to 'be subject to the governing authorities' (Rom 13:1)
Are there ever times when Christians shouldn't submit to those in authority?
This message provides insight regarding these questions and why God loves us to learn to defer to one another.

"The Three Anointings Of David" by Nigel Turner
This is the first message in our new series, 'The Look Of A Heart After God'.
A lot of Christians use the term 'anointing' but do we know what the term actually means?
How do we discern between natural talent or gifting and anointing, is there a difference?
This message seeks to look at three aspects of the anointing of the Holy Spirit shown in David's life and which are important for us if we are going to have a heart after God.

"Many But One" by Pastor Charles Fleming
Have you ever been hurt by fellow Christians?
Have you ever been disappointed by church leaders?
The answer to both those questions for most of us, if not all of us is unfortunately, 'Yes'.
With this in mind is it actually possible for Jesus' prayer for His followers to become one as He and the Father are one? (John 17:20-21)
Or is it just a utopian spiritual pipe dream which can never realistically be fulfilled?
Are we as Christians even remotely capable of so positioning ourselves in relationship with God, one another and church leaders that this can ever happen?
This message tackles some of the issues that we as Christians need to get to grips with if we are going to be part of fulfilling Jesus' prayer for unity.

"Encountering The Metaphysical Glory Of Jesus Christ" by Pastor Charles Fleming
Can we as Christians expect to experience the glory of God as a reality in our lives?
Moses expected to see and experience the manifest glory of God, in Exodus 33:18 Moses asks God to show him His glory; In Numbers 14:14 Moses prays, 'You, O Lord, are in the midst of this people. For You, O Lord, are seen face to face, and Your cloud stands over Your people and You go before them, in a pillar of cloud by day and in a pillar of fire by night.'
Was the manifest presence of God just for biblical prophets like Ezekiel, Daniel or the Apostle John to experience or should we be seeking this for our own lives today?
To quote Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones, 'The thirst for God and the longing for the exhibition of His glory are the essential preliminaries to revival.'

"The Advancing Kingdom" by Pastor Charles Fleming
Have you ever thought about the importance of vision, not just to be able to see to read or drive, but vision for life?
Have you ever considered the difference between humanly inspired vision and God-inspired vision?
Human vision comes in the form of various political, social and economic theories and philosophies which are experimentally applied to population groups and are proved right or wrong over time; Godly vision is very different to that.
Find out just how important it is to have Godly vision for our lives and just what that means in this message.

"Vision" by Nigel Turner
The first message in our annual series reminding us of the vision that God has given us as a Church.
Scripture says that, 'Without vision the people perish.' Or another version translates the same verse, 'Without vision the people cast off restraint.'
Recent events in Washington DC on the 6th January, when Capitol Hill was stormed by an angry mob show what happens when a lack of Godly vision causes people to 'Cast off restraint', it results in outrage and anarchy.
Sometimes things can seem so obvious that as Christians we wonder why they might need mentioning again!
Surely we've all got that by now we think! But paying attention to our vision is highly recommended by Jesus, 'The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if the eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light.'

"The Covenant Service 2021" by Shekinah Christian Church - Covenant renewal led by Marina Rule.
On the first Sunday of each year we have a custom as a church congregation, and that custom is to remind ourselves of the covenant relationship that God has called His people into.
This year the congregation was invited to prepare testimonies regarding what it has meant to live in the light of that covenant declaration that was prayed 12 months earlier in January 2020 after 2020 proved to be such a challenging year with the Covid pandemic dominating our lives, the testimonies are great, there is something for everyone, listen on if you want to be encouraged.

"End Of Year Service 2020" by Shekinah Christian Church
Well, what a year 2020 has been!
At the end of each year we usually reflect on God's faithfulness to us, and especially after a year like the one that we've just had.
For some of us it's been a year of immense pressure and challenge with increased workloads, while others have had the threat of their careers or businesses being impaired or lost completely; some have lost family and friends with none of the usual ways of saying last goodbyes; all of us have had 'lockdown' birthdays, anniversaries, scaled back family get-togethers courtesy of Zoom, weddings becoming minimalist affairs throughout the year…
The news media has been filled with avalanches of data and statistics fuelling despair and negativity, anxiety and fear, so it's wonderful when god's people come together in corporate worship and simply share the words of encouragement that God has put on their hearts, this podcast of praise, worship and contributions will lift your spirit and refresh hope in the goodness of God towards you.

"Help Is Here!" by Pastor Charles Fleming
The last in our series of Advent messages charts the extraordinary lengths that God has gone to in providing help for humanity in all our fallenness, weakness and sin. But can we acknowledge that we need saving? And will we recognise the help in the way that He offers it?

"The Forerunner" by Pastor Charles Fleming bringing our second message in advent.
Have you ever considered that you are a forerunner to what God does next?
We have a choice at this time of the year, we can go along with society's version of Christmas, a baby in a feeding trough who is harmless but we all get to give and receive gifts and enjoy getting together with family and friends, or we recognise that with the coming of Jesus into the world something very radical and challenging has actually taken place, the beginning of the inauguration of a new covenant between God and man which transcends gifts, family meals and get-togethers with friends, it ushers in an eternal Kingdom.
The question is on what level are we willing to be involved ?
