The Kingdom is Coming A sermon for Palm Sunday 2020 "I wonder… what we are applauding today, that we will shout crucify at tomorrow? Can we see through the culture of the quick fix?

The End Times?

29th Mar 2020

Where people die, God is. Where people suffer, God is. Where people live in fear, God is. Where people are victimised, God is. Where people are faithless, God is. Where people doubt, God is. Where people betray, God is. Where people repent, God is. Where people love one another, God is. Where people make sacrifices for others, God is. Where people risk their safety for the lives of others, God is. Read more

A Taxing Question

15th Mar 2020

What if our way out of the trap that lies before us, is neither quiescent complicity to the state, nor extremist politics of social revolution, but developing - actively working at - a culture of generous, loving care, for those who are disadvantaged in our world and society; coupled with a commitment to speak out, to challenge those political and economic systems that impoverish the poor and enrich the rich.

Now Wash Your Hands Please

16th Feb 2020

The new world of the kingdom of heaven is not a world of ideological quarantine, spiritual decontamination chambers, or ritualised holding cells. It’s not a world where whispered traditions get to exclude or isolate the vulnerable or the different. It is rather a place of radical forgiveness and all-embracing love, where purity comes as a gift of God, available to all without distinction. Read more

On Forgiveness and Healing

10th Jan 2020

"Simply telling individuals that they must repent of their personal sins to be acceptable to God and God’s people is a distortion of the forgiveness that should be shaping us together into communities of love, restoration, transformation and wholeness." - Simon Woodman Read more

Towards Full Inclusion in Church Life

9th Jan 2020

The starting point for a journey into greater inclusion isn’t a greater understanding of the marginalised and the oppressed, it is a greater understanding of ourselves and our own capacity for sinful idolatry. Read more

By Whose Authority?

5th Jan 2020
