This week we listen to Louie Giglio as he implores us to not give the enemy a seat at our table.
Ad continues our series with a brief talk on Nathaniel’s ‘fig tree’ moment and how even when we think we’re on our own, God is in that place just waiting for us to realise it.
Join us as we start our new four part mini-series as we give up time for talking to give more time to responding. Adam kicks off week 1 talking about the three gardens.
Gemma completes our Incredible Women series with part 7, the story of Anna. As our series comes to an end we delve into Luke 2 and see a woman who chooses to trust God completely with her life, even if it hadn’t taken the direction she imagined or planned.
Adam continues our series on the tragically overlooked and unsung female heroes of the Bible. This week: Phoebe
Adam continues our series by focusing on the couple Priscilla and Aquila and how their commitment to doing faith together and discipling others spread the message of Jesus across nations.

Donna Crouch, If not you, then who?
God is Good? - Part 2
Adam continues our series by asking: If God is in control? Then is He the author of my pain as well? We learn the difference between God being in charge and God being in control and find out that God's Thelema is infinitely more interesting than His Boulema!
Paul Maxwell takes over from his brother to talk first hand about Forgiveness and why it makes the difference.
How do we know when we've forgiven someone? What are the indicators that we've let go of our bitterness and unforgiveness?
Ad shares the three things that can let us know: No shame, no fear and no guilt.
Ad kicks off a two-parter in the Difference series as we study the time and choices that Joseph has in prison.
Ad continues digging into the one difference we can choose to embrace in our lives...forgiveness.
The Difference series continues with part 3 - The pain stops here. Ad digs into the example of Jesus, taking the pain onto himself and stopping that perpetual cycle of revenge.
Ad talks to us about what forgiveness is, and what forgiveness isn't. Not excusing the sin but instead allowing God's power to be the difference in our damaged relationships.
Ad Maxwell starts our latest series talking about being the difference in our world. So what is the difference? The silver bullet?
The series concludes with Lewis talking about forgiveness - the silver bullet for making our communities places of love and grace,
Ad continues The People Decide series by addressing the default within us to make Christianity and Faith about me and me alone. And instead shows us the joy and freedom in getting our hearts tangled up with others.
Lewis kicks off our new series with a new look at an old favourite. "We have decided to not make it difficult for those who are attempting to draw near to God." If we can make it difficult people, surely we can also make it easy?
Jacob delves into the beginning of the traditional nativity story to look at Mary and Joseph and the decisions they made to believe in something more than their reality showed them.
Ad and Paul give us an update on the upcoming events and plans for Hope Church.
Jacob brings us a stand alone message with an unconventional but much needed message that more of us than we'd like to admit have learned to treat as small print: The fact that we all need a saviour.
