Shine like Stars: New Resources @Night

September 19, 2017

Where do our thoughts turn to when our mind is quiet? Do they look in regret at the past? Do they spiral to worry about things that might come to pass? Paul teaches us that rejoicing in the Lord actually guards your lives and relationships from the onset of anxious thoughts. Filling your mind with uplifting, positive thoughts, media, books, relationships and literature releases your heart to know the joy that is found in rejoicing in the Lord.

Join with Lead Pastor Stuart Starr and the NewLife@Night service, as we work through this very practical service on how to guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Shine like Stars: New Ambitions @Night

September 10, 2017

Ambition is often a term that many Christians view only as remnants of their old, sinful lives. But for Paul, it was absolutely necessary, even vital that his ambition remain, as his attitude and focus changed. Senior Assistant Pastor Geoff Leader reveals the dramatic shift in focus that led Paul’s heart to seek the Christ and turn his ambitions towards Heaven.

Shine like Stars: A New Covenant

September 4, 2017

Circumcision was a covenant and a sign of tribal identity. A mark that the Israelites took thousands of years ago, to show God, that they were committed to being a new type of people in the world. Paul brilliantly identifies that it is absolutely necessary to use human construct, language and practices to describe a God that is beyond explainable and beyond our understanding, yet at the same time recognises that we can become fully entrenched in practice or ritual itself that it can actually cause us to move away from knowing God.

Join with Lead Pastor Stuart Starr, and the NewLife@Night service, in finding out how we can come to a fuller understanding of who God is and what He is doing in our world.

August 27, 2017

Lead Pastor Stuart Starr looks at how our hearts and lives are inevitably shaped by the people we honour. An honest look at our hearts would reveal that most often times, it can actually seem counter-intuitive to hold anyone in higher esteem than ourselves, except if they are a famous influencer, a political leader or a prominent athlete. 

Paul’s reassuring message to the Philippians is reassuring for us - that if our hearts’ baseline and focal point is of Christ, then our actions will naturally follow - actions that speak about the work that has to be done for the Kingdom to progress and for Christ to be preached, as well as the overwhelming desire to seek the path already laid out for us. The way that Timothy and Epaphroditus chose.

Shine like Stars: New Responsibilities @Night

August 20, 2017

It shouldn’t be of much surprise, that we are today living in what many refer to as a “Post-Christian Society”. Our thoughtlessness for each other, the desire of self and ego, the way in which discrimination runs unchecked - so how do we act in a world where everything, at every turn, is lined with deception, evil and hatred?

Paul’s answer? To Shine like Stars.

To live a life that is exemplary. A life that stands in defiance of hatred and evil. To live as Christ and to die to the old ways and the bondage of sin. Christ was building something new in Paul and in the world he lived in, just as He continues to build this world, remaking it in His image, through us.

Paul invites us to live a life in Christ, to work out each decision that we make with fear and trembling - in recognition that each decision we face is ultimately bringing the Kingdom of God nearer, or pushing it away.
