Easter Conference 2015

The Balanced Christian Life (25 min)

EASTER CONF 2015 – Sandy Higgins preaches on the “balanced Christian life” from Luke 10.

Four Kinds of Trials (46 min)

EASTER CONF 2015 – Colin Hutchinson preaches on 4 kinds of trials in the Christian life from Peter’s first epistle. In a wide ranging message he takes some of the experiences of Elijah, Gideon, Hannah, John the Baptist, Peter and others to show how through “manifold temptations” they were tried by fire and came forth as gold. A powerful and sobering message (Message preached April 6th 2015)

Great and Marvellous Are Thy Works (39 min)

EASTER CONF 2015 – Colin Hutchinson preaches on Rev 15:3 – “Great and marvellous are Thy works, Lord God almighty.” He traces God’s sovereign dealings in the lives of His people, using individuals like Abraham, Jacob and Naomi to illustrate the need to trust in God in every circumstance, however dark and trying. “We will never regret leaving our lives in God’s hands” (Message preached April 6th 2015)

Love, Lapse and Loyalty (30 min)

EASTER CONF 2015 – Sandy Higgins closes the conference with a challenging look at three New Testament characters. John the apostle, marked by love for Christ. Peter, marked by a sad lapse in devotion, as he followed at a distance. Joseph of Arimathea who was marked by loyalty to Christ in the hour of His death. Following Christ might mean burying your future…but a resurrected present will more than compensate (Message preached April 6th 2015)

The Ministry of the Prophet (18 min)

EASTER CONF 2015 – Colin Hutchison highlights three men who should have been priests – Jeremiah, Ezekiel and John the Baptist – but each of whom God sent forth as prophets because of the broken state of God’s people. Each man had a specific ministry to adjust the people hearts, to adjust the condition of God’s house and to make straight the way of the Lord. A challenging message (Message preached 5th April 2015)
