Doorways to the Cross

Enemy at the Gate

image7

March 10 – 1st Sunday of Lent (DST)

Gen 4:1-16


Cain was warned that sin was crouching at the door; Peter later warned us that the devil prowls around like a roaring lion. There is no denying that there is something horribly wrong with the world, and sadly, many are blind to what it is. On the way to the cross we pass through the first door to reflect on the enemy at the gate. 

Sermon Text

In our Out?

image8

  March 17 – 2nd Sunday of Lent

Matthew 25:1-13


Jesus uses the example of what should have been a joyous occasion to illustrate an important truth that we often don’t like to talk about. You are either in or out. Once the door closes there is no other opportunity, no second chance, and no do overs. We pause today at the second door to reflect on the finality of judgement.

Sermon Text

Who Can it Be knocking at My Door?

image9

  March 24 – 3rd Sunday of Lent

Rev 3:20


As scary a thought we looked at last week, this week we stand amazed at God’s grace. Though we live under the threat of Divine wrath, before judgement is exacted, a lone figure stands knocking upon our door. Who can it be, now? It is He who seeks us out, who longs to fellowship with us—even as we shut ourselves into our tiny lives, it is He who calls on us.

One Way (There's No Other)

image10

March 31 – 4th Sunday of Lent

John 10:1-10


We stand beside the gate to the sheep pen this morning, and are reminded once more of the many ways in which we are told there is only one way. The cherubim needed guard the only one gate to Eden; Noah installed only one door in his ark; the Passover required only one door to be painted, and the temple had but one door and one could approach the holy of Holies in only there was but one way to the Holy of Holies. One way, there’s no other.

“Come On In; It’s Open”

image11

April 7 – 5th Sunday of Lent

Acts 14:26-28 


It is the door through which the gospel came to the us, and through which we come to Christ—the door of faith. This door presently stands open to all who would enter and we join in praying with Paul that the door remain open, for there are many yet who linger by the threshold of the great door of faith.

“Batten Down the Hatch”

image12

April 14 – Palm Sunday

Genesis 7:1-16


When you are whizzing through the air at over five hundred miles over hour, some six miles up, it is reassuring to know that the door of the aluminium tube in which you sit is secure. If it wasn’t, well, that would suck. We turn our eyes back to Noah this morning, and reflect on the blessed assurance we have when God battens down the hatch

2019 Advent Theme

The Story

It was a land locked in a perpetual winter, where Christmas never came.  For our Advent theme this coming year we will turn to the land of Narnia, and will see the story of the Christ-child woven into the fabric of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.


We look forward to having you join with us in a journey through the C.S. Lewis classic and draw out spiritual lessons on the first advent of the King.
