Letter to the Church at LaodiceaSimon Allaby16th July 201718,942 Kb
Description
Revelation 3:14-22. The last of the seven letters is addressed to a church without any redeeming features, but one which has succumbed to self-sufficiency and pride. Jesus loves this church but finds Himself on the outside knocking to be asked back in.

Letter to the Church at PhiladelphiaSimon Allaby9th July 201721,050 Kb
Description
Revelation 3:1-13. In Philadelphia we find a small church community under pressure from Hellenistic culture and Jewish traditionalists, and yet which is commended for keeping Jesus' word and not denying His name. He promises them that there is an open door for sharing the Gospel, that He will sustain them through times of trial, and that He is coming soon.

Letter to the Church at SardisSimon Allaby18th June 201719,934 Kb
Description
Revelation 3:1-6. Like the city in which it exists the Church at Sardis seems to have become overly complacent and comfortable, troubled neither by heresy from within, nor opposition from the pagan community without. The challenge is for her to wake up before it is too late. Like the other letters this one serves as a powerful mirror in which to examine ourselves and our own church communities.

Letter to the Church at PergamumSimon Allaby28th May 201718,958 Kb
Description
Revelation 2:12-17. The church at Pergamum is in the home of the Roman capital of Asia with a proconsul holding the power of life and death, and the centre of worship for the Greek pantheon of gods. They are holding firm against enormous pressure but some have succumbed to the temptation to compromise with the world around. Jesus gives a challenge to them to repent - or judgement will be forthcoming.

Letter to SmyrnaSimon Allaby21st May 201718,559 Kb
Description
Revelation 2:8-11. The Christian community in Smyrna is being crushed under the weight of opposition, most notably from the Jewish community. But Jesus commends them for their faithfulness.

Letter to EphesusSimon Allaby14th May 201724,195 Kb
Description
Revelation 2:1-7. Jesus commends the church at Ephesus for her zeal for purity and orthodoxy, but challenges her over her loss of love for the lost. With many similarities between Ephesus in the 1st century and Western Europe in the 21st, we are challenged to hold fast to the truths of the Gospel in terms of Biblical lifestyle and belief, but not at the expense of failing to show God's generous and extravagant love to the world.

The Curtain RisesSimon Allaby23rd April 201722,423 Kb
Description
Revelation 1:1-8 Introducing a new series of talks looking at the letters to seven churches. The questions facing Christians in the first century are the same ones we wrestle with in the 21st - Why is Jesus' return so long delayed? Why do Christians suffer so much for their faith? How do we live in a culture where the prevailing 'religion' rejects Christ as Lord? Where is history headed? Revelation has the answers!

Enter the KingSimon Allaby9th April 201723,380 Kb
Description
Luke 19:28-44. On this Palm Sunday we focus on the crowd who accompanied Jesus into Jerusalem, worshipping Him for the miracles that they had seen. We reflect on the journey that we must make from loving Jesus for what He does, to loving Him for who He is - the Messiah, the King of Kings. Following Jesus will inevitably lead us into conflict as we come up against the spiritual forces in the heavenly realms that are ranged against Him and us. Ultimately we must choose whether to be swept up in the things that Jesus is doing, or be swept aside by Him.

Created in God's ImageSimon Allaby19th February 201717,094 Kb
Description
Genesis 1:26 - 2:4 Our society has bought into the idea that gender is not something we are assigned from birth, but something are free to create ourselves. But the creation account makes clear that being created male and female reflects the image of God. We explore this issue, together with our commission to rule over the earth and also the example of God to work from rest, rather than rest from work.

In the beginning, GodSimon Allaby5th February 201723,551 Kb
Description
Genesis 1:1-25 is the statement 'In the beginning God', a reasonable one or the fantasy of the primitive and uneducated as evolutionists believe. We touch on some of the scientific evidence and the probability of life spontaneously appearing on earth from some kind of primeval soup. But we also explore the purpose and meaning of our lives.
