In our last service before we celebrate Christmas, Will explores one of the great themes of this season: God’s faithfulness. He shows how Christmas reveals that God is endlessly singing a song of faithful commitment and love over his world. Through the story of Simeon and Anna holding the baby Jesus, Will explains that faith looks like tuning in to this song above all others.
George continues in our preparing the way series by looking at what it means for God to be with us. In Jesus, we know that God comes close and longs to speak to us.
Jonny continues to look at how we prepare the way for the coming of Jesus by focusing on the Magi. These Eastern Astronomers show us something important about how God works; Jesus’ life is about including outsiders even from the very beginning. Those gathered around this baby aren't the powerful or religious, but those who were willing to say ‘yes’ to the invitation to come and worship.
Jonny and Amy share what it looks like to prepare for Christ's coming. This looks like allowing God to use us in our everyday lives and surrendering to the goodness of God. As a church and community what does it look like to say yes to God and see his kingdom come.
This week Jonny concludes our vision series by looking at the benefits of a generous life. He invites us to step into generosity in a new way.
This week Jonny continues our vision series by looking at the area of giving. In this two week mini-series, he addresses the question of why we should practice generosity by looking at the hold that money and possessions can have on us.
This week Jonny explains the next phase of the unfolding church vision. Speaking from Jesus’ interaction with Zacchaeus in Luke 19, Jonny reminds us of the role of radical hospitality in the gospel story, and in our own story as a church. Shared meals and interest groups will be a key part of the story of Trinity going forward, and you can join in now!
This week Will unpacks the invitation to be part of a ‘few’: What these groups are, why we think they’re important, and how we might start them. Jesus has disciples and followers but amidst that he has a ‘three’ - his few. Will shows us how these small units of three or four can be a vital way in which we grow as disciples; they teach us vulnerability, train us in friendship and ultimately help us see more of Jesus.
Amy & Jonny continue our vision series, looking specifically at how we are to connect with God and one another. This week they focus on what it looks like to cultivate a loving union with God as the most important aspect of discipleship, and they suggest a few simple daily practices which help.
This week Jonny gives the first instalment of our vision series, looking at what it might take to see the church on fire and the city alive.
As the second part of our launch Sunday, we heard from Nicky & Pippa Gumbel, church leaders of HTB and pioneers of Alpha.
On our first Sunday in our new worship space, Bishop Paul Williams comes to dedicate the worship space, whilst sharing some of the story so far.
In the last sermon in this series, Will looks at Jesus' interaction with Thomas. Will shows how Thomas' doubt wasn't an obstacle, but became way into deeper trust in Jesus. Will explains how belief is about a different way of knowing; more about love than knowledge, and he shows how Thomas' story invites each of us into a deeper experience Jesus' love for us.
This week Jonny takes us through Jesus’ interaction with those around his crucifixion. Jesus’ death shows us a God who is vulnerable, forgiving and hospitable even in death.
This week Jonny looks at Jesus’ meeting with Nicodemus at night, and the impact it has on him. Though it takes a while, like many of the people Jesus meets, Nicodemus is changed.
This week Jonny continues our series by looking at Jesus’ welcome of children. This open invitation to children breaks down perceived cultural barriers, and reminds us that God’s welcome is open to all who would receive it freely. We can be sure that if we come to Jesus we will receive a blessing.
This week George looks at Jesus' encounter with a father who's son has an 'unclean spirit'. At the heart of this encounter is the question of our expectations of God. As disciples we're called to expect that when Jesus is present everything changes.
Will continues our series by looking at Jesus' encounter with the pharisees. If we want to see outward transformation we need to let Jesus transform us first!
Will continues our series by looking at Jesus' encounter with the pharisees. Jesus is calling us to live life in abundance.
This week Jonny takes us through Jesus' encounter with Peter. It is a remarkable picture of restoration in which Jesus goes looking for Peter, reveals the truth about himself and about Peter, and points Peter into a more hopeful future.
