Shine like Stars Series

Shine like Stars

Throughout the term we will be starting a brand new series called "Shine like Stars". This series will be exploring the new life that Paul describes to the church in Philippi and taking its inspiration from verses 15-16 of the 2nd chapter, "Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life."

 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?

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.
