Shine like Stars: New Responsibilities

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...

 Shine like Stars: New Attitude

Lead Pastor Stuart Starr talks on Phillipians 2:1-11, Imitating Christ’s Humility.

 Shine like Stars: A New Purpose

How would you respond if you lived under persecution and under the foot of oppression - if you had your rights stripped from you and if you had your basic humanness denied? When in chains for the Gospel, Paul preached Christ. He spoke of an inner joy that surpassed all human wisdom, and a peace that kept him grounded even in the toughest of circumstances. Join with Senior Assistant Pastor Geoff Leader and the NewLife@10 service, as we see how Paul's letter to the Philippians not only helped them rise above their circumstances, but forever changed their view of themselves, their church...

 Shine like Stars: A New Heart

Paul’s letter to the Philippians is a beautifully written reminder that we live beneath a veil. That as Christians we are called to look to Christ, and in seeing Him, be transformed in our view of ourselves, be changed in viewing our church and go deeper into prayer with God. Join with the NewLife@10 service, as Lead Pastor Stuart Starr as we examine Paul’s letter to the church in Philippi.

 Shine like Stars: Philippian Foundations

Christ lived and breathed under the occupation of the Roman Empire. He witnessed first hand the totalitarian might of the militant juggernaut of his day, that sought to prop itself up with the propaganda that it spread to the ends of the world. When his earthly ministry showed people a new way to live - a life in Him - it broke an empire and changed the lives of everyone, for every generation to come. It wasn’t however, for a few hundred years, that Christianity would become the sanctioned and practiced religion of the Roman Empire. Lead Pastor Stuart Starr opens this...

 Living in the Light

How often do we miss the point? How often do we exchange one set of ideals for another because the packaging has better marketing or brighter colours? Our lives are constantly being bombarded with the message “if your focus only shifted from that to this”, then our lives would be fuller, richer and happier. Our social media profiles are filled with hashtags like #fitspiration, #followforfollow & #KardashianLife - but how much time do we spend following a half truth that doesn’t bring about lasting and purposeful life? It’s of course perfectly fine to to be inspired to be fitter, healthier,...

 I AM the Light of the World

Join with the NewLife@10 service, as we listen to Lead Pastor Stuart Starr unpack Jesus’ extraordinary claim that he is the one true Light for this world and the redemption of mankind, and the hope that we can all have in this life and the next.

 With God on Mission: A New Humanity

In the last sermon of the series “On Mission with God”, we listen to Lead Pastor Stuart Starr reveal God’s ultimate plan for humanity - to reconcile all peoples to Himself. Our understanding of how God will reconcile the world to Himself tomorrow, enables us now to live in a way that is fully vital to the redemption of mankind today.

 With God on Mission: Inbound Exiles

The book of Isaiah contains some of the most beautiful imagery in all of Scripture, of the unfolding prophecy of a redeemed people. The message of salvation and hope to people at the ends of the Earth affirm the saving nature of our Heavenly Father. Except these words also serve as prelude to the imminent unravelling of Israel. It's exile. The Israelites had forgotten their true calling - the failed to look towards the one true God and failed to be a blessing to all the nations, in doing so, failed to reveal the creator of the Universe to all...

 With God on Mission: Faithful Exiles

Accounts in the scriptures like the ones we find in Daniel, show us the faithfulness of our God. They reveal a lot about the nature of our ancestors and how they viewed the world, and even more, about the saving, redemptive nature of God. The Israelites who are in exile, chose to disobey the Kings orders and bow down to an idol - who are then are thrown into a fire, and SURVIVE the flames, all because of their faith in the God, Yahweh. However, this account is in stark contrast to the stories we find in the New Testament....
