Go To The Other Side

Irene Shand-Len's message on Sunday 20th May 2012 is available for download.

Irene looks at the story where Jesus says to His disciples to cross the lake to go to the other side. On the other side they meet up with a socially unacceptable demon possessed man from the Gerasenes. In this encounter with Jesus, the demon possessed man's life is transformed. In this message we are challenged to go to the other side of the places we move about in by crossing boundaries and reaching out to others in obedience, friendship, love and with the life giving good news of Jesus Christ. Jesus desires us to go to the other side and reach out to others with His purpose, power and plan.

Expectations in Evangelism

Oreste's message on Sunday 13th May 2012 is available for download.

Having a practical working basis for sowing and reaping in the Kingdom harvest, it is important to ensure we have biblical expectations on the work Jesus has called us and commanded us to do.  Understanding these expectations in evangelism enables us to recognise what productivity in our mission really means.  Without balanced expectations we can too easily become discouraged and overwhelmed by the task. This is something Jesus never intended His followers to experience. His desire is that we should be stimulated, fulfilled and sustained by the work of sowing and reaping in the harvest. This was the experience of Jesus as He shared the good news and as His followers it is able to be and meant to be ours. Listen in and find out how it can be so.

Ways to Help Sow & Reap Part 2

Oreste's message on Sunday 6th May 2012 is available for download.

After looking at the things you need to know as you are out in the field helping in the harvest, this message focuses on the things you can do to help sow and reap.  There are a number of practical ways to help get the good news message out both as an individual and as part of the local church in the community. The practice of productively sharing your faith will depend on your priority and preparation. When these things are in place sowing and reaping will more naturally become the core work you bring into everything you put your hand to.
