There is a Time.

In an extremely Insta-worthy moment this morning, I sat in the car, overlooking the coast on the north-east of England, watching the sun rise over the ocean that stretched out in front of me. It was a moment of reflection: a second to pause, and to take in the glimpse of a new beginning, peeking over…

Don’t (Just) Tell Me that it’s Going to Be OK: How to Sit with Those that are Hurting.

I had the privilege, early this week, of sitting with a group of people who are all walking through some really difficult things. There was a real sense of burden in the group that night: they were as lovely as ever, but as we chatted I began to see some of the weight that each of…

It's the third week in our series on the letter to the Colossians, and today we're tackling the end of chapter one. Colossians is such a massive book - you could write a sermon on any of the verses - but there is so much packed into the first chapter, that we wanted to take a…
