All Things New

January 1, 2018

How often do we look forward to New Years Day to start our diets, a new fitness plan, a new business venture, or any number of a hundred goals? Its a great chance to start over and begin again. The trouble with New Years Day is that it is intangible and ethereal - we live most of the year not in the expectation of starting, but in the empty space of never starting. We like to live our lives "there" without ever really being "here", and in the meantime miss out on the actual opportunity in living in that way now. 

Lead Pastor Stuart Starr invites us to live in the awareness that Eternity is in our hearts now, and we don't need to wait till New Years Day to live in it now.

Good News: Christmas Eve @Night

December 24, 2017

"The people walking in darkness have seen a great light, on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned."

Join with Lead Pastor Stuart Starr and the NewLife congregation as we explore that wonderful mystery of Christmas - that Advent is truley not about hope alone, but about waiting while we know the Christ is here - with each of us. We are a people moving beyond hope - to being people who know that there is no night that does not eventually lead to dawn.

ChristmaSanity: We need a Redeemer @Night

December 10, 2017

What is a person really worth? How do you measure it? It's so easy at Christmas time to subconsiously measure someones worth through what we give them. Lead Pastor Stuart Starr takes a look at how we can live a life that's full of grace, and not meaningless giving.

Unfortunately the beginning of the podcast was not recorded.

ChristmaSanity: The Hope if Restoration @Night

December 3, 2017

What does a utopian future look like? Can it ever exist while we line in sin? How does it form and how is it cultivated?  

Stuart Grant focusses on a God who sends Jesus to show us how to respond in love and adoration, to not worry about the little things, but to ponder on the big, for the sake of the world, our neighbour and Him.
