Philippians: Slaves, Saints & Sons #4

Paul continues his letter to the Philippians by reminding them of the need to live what they speak as he encourages them to live lives worthy of the gospel. This week, Jonny reminds us that following Jesus involves a transfer of allegiance from one kingdom to another. What follows this change of identity is a transformed life, marked by integrity, perseverance and unity. This kind of life makes God's kingdom available to people today. 

Philippians: Slaves, Saints & Sons #3

Jonny continued our series in Philippians by teaching from chapter 1, verses 12–26. Here we see a picture of Paul as a man who knows his 'why?'. This clarity enables him to find joy in a time of great difficulty. What is his 'why'? Simply this: the good news about Jesus Christ. Paul offers an example for us to follow. The deepest experience of life comes as go on the journey of discovering Jesus as our motivation for all things.

Philippians: Slaves, Saints & Sons #2

Will continues our series in Philippians by taking us through chapter 1, verses 1-11. Paul speaks about a confidence he has that “He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion…”. Will reminds us that God is working in each of us to bring us closer to true freedom, and we can have confidence that He will finish what He has started. This work is for each of us individually, but also for the Church: God is working to achieve something incredible in and through us.

Vision #3

This week we continued our vision series by looking in more depth at what it might mean to be a church on fire. Jonny's message focuses on the next stage of the church's journey, which will involve building on the foundations that have been laid so far, both spiritually and physically. At the heart of this sermon is a powerful testimony of prayer, which continues to inspire us as a church.  

Ancient Paths #3

One of the three practices we have adopted at Trinity is to read a Psalm each day. In this sermon Will gives an overview of the book of the Psalms. He outlines how the psalms are given as a gift to help shape our praying and worship. They teach us words and ideas to pray and they deal with the full range of human experience, from joy to pain and from hope to despair. Ultimately the psalms are ‘praises’: Will explains how we need an understanding of praise that is putting the whole of our selves before our Loving Father.

Ancient Paths #2

This week Josie continues our series on the Ancient paths as she looks at the second of our three practices; the Lord’s Prayer. She outlines what it means for us that Jesus wanted to teach his disciples not about prayer, but how to pray. The key to Jesus' prayer is the the truth that God is our Father, and Josie unpacks how this core reality is the basis of of each line of the prayer.

Ancient Paths #1

This week we begin a new series called Ancient Paths, in which we'll be taking a look at some of the practices that shape us at Trinity Church. In this first sermon in the series, Will looks at Jesus’ teaching in the Sermon on the Mount about two paths and a tree. He explains how getting on (and staying on) the path that leads to life is a matter of the heart more than the head. Ultimately, it's about being captivated by a vision of God.
