Joanne and Jonny continue our series in Romans 8, looking at how the Spirit of God enables us to know and experience the love of God our Father. This revelation is utterly life changing, and it’s available to everyone who wants to receive it.
Amy continues our series by looking at how life in the Spirit means freedom for God’s people. She speaks about what it looks like to win the battle of the mind, by soaking in God’s Presence, speaking God’s truth over our lives, and setting the track for our lives by joining with His will.
This week Jonny kicks off our new series in Romans 8 looking at what it means to live life in the Spirit. Many of us live a life defined by our inner critic, starved of joy and peace. Jonny shows us that to live the life that God imagines for His people means knowing that we don’t need to live under this condemnation any more, but instead under God’s verdict of approval. This means turning off the external voice of criticism, and tuning into the wavelength of the Spirit of God.
This week Jonny closes our series on The Way of Jesus by looking at the attitude that disciples of Jesus must aspire to carry. Looking at the call of Moses, Jonny asks the question ‘how can I have more of God?’.
This week George continues our series on The Way of Jesus by looking at what it means to be set on fire for God.
When God fills us with his Spirit we find that we are more hungry to know Him and to make Him known
This week Jonny continues our series on The Way of Jesus by looking at the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. God flips this agricultural festival – known for being a time where the Jewish people brought a gift to God – on its head by bringing a gift that would change the lives of his followers, and dramatically transform the face of the world. His gift is still available to us today!
This week, Bryan continues building on what it means to take seriously the life of Jesus and way of life into which we are invited. Exploring the beginning of the Sermon on the Mount, he gave context for the type people Jesus is inviting into this kingdom life, reminding us that until we come to terms with our own brokenness and powerlessness apart from God, we will continue to resist life with Jesus. He challenges us to look deeply at our own patterns of control and insecurity, and points us toward surrender as a step to living more fully influenced and transformed by Jesus.
In this second instalment from this week’s teaching, Jonny interviews John Mark Comer on the question of what Jesus might have to say to us in the current cultural moment. Drawing on a wide variety of sources, John Mark offers a powerful picture of a Jesus whose life and message is more relevant than ever.
This week, guest teacher John Mark Comer spoke about a life of following Jesus in an age defined by hurry and restlessness. Speaking from our text for the last few weeks (Matthew 11.28–30), he showed us that the way to life is found as we slow down and enter into God’s rest. He introduced us to an essential practice for every follower of Jesus; the Sabbath.
This week Jonny continued our series on the way of Jesus by looking at an essential attitude of a follower of Jesus; one of learning. Using content from Dr. Roger Bretherton’s Character Course, he introduced us to the difference between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset, and applied this to our lives as followers of Jesus.
This week Jonny introduces our new series called The Way of Jesus. Speaking from Matthew 11:28-30, he shows us that what Jesus invites his followers into is a life with him. This way of life is one of being yoked together with him, and it leads us to freedom and life.
This week we interviewed our guests from California, Bryan and Jenni Rouanzoin. It was a great opportunity to get to know them more, as well as to learn about what it looks like to follow Jesus as family.
We had the privilege of having Dr. Roger Bretherton with us on Sunday. Roger is a senior lecturer in psychology at the University of Lincoln, England, and the chair of the British Association of Christians in Psychology. Rodger shares his knowledge on the subject of character.
This Sunday was very special for Trinity Church Nottingham. Together we celebrated the resurrection of Jesus and 1 2 people were baptised. Listen as Jonny and Amy Hughes share some thoughts on baptism.
This week Jonny concludes the lent series by looking at Jesus’ arrival into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. He explains that what enabled Jesus to hear his Fathers voice above the noise of the crowd was a deep conviction that He was unconditionally loved by Him. This same conviction is available for each one of us, and it’s part of God’s good news for us.
This week Will looks at the third and final temptation Jesus faces in the wilderness. The devil offers Jesus the same thing that God has offered Jesus. The temptation then is for Jesus to take it for himself, now. Will explains how the story shows us two different ways of living life: grasping, or receiving. According to Jesus, we find peace and freedom when we live our lives worshipping God: one long, continual receiving from Him.
This week Jonny looks at the first temptation Jesus faces in the wilderness; the temptation to make bread out of a stone. Behind this temptation is a challenge to Jesus' identity and purpose. Will he fall into it or overcome? Jonny shows that each of us faces this same temptation every day, and suggests that living lives of greater simplicity can help us as we try to respond to this temptation as Jesus did.
This week Jonny starts our Lent series by exploring what it looks like to be in the wilderness and how it can be a gift.
This week George finishes our series on Jonah, looking at Jonah chapter four. In this passage we see that God’s compassion towards Nineveh results in Jonah’s anger towards God. We are called to look afresh at the scandal of God’s grace and his offer of forgiveness to all who turn to Him. Ultimately we see this grace in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.
