Solomon’s Fall (1 Kings 10-11)

By 1 Kings, Talks

This week, we come to the end of Solomon’s story, and we watch the world flock to Solomon because of his great kingdom and great wisdom. But at the height of his power, Solomon’s heart turns from the Lord in every way imaginable, and we watch one of the greatest falls from grace in history. So what can we learn from this tragic final chapter to Solomon’s life, and where can we find hope in the rubble? We can only look to a greater Son of David, whose heart would never move from having faithful love for his Heavenly Father.

Hear in Heaven (1 Kings 8-9)

By 1 Kings, Talks

Last week in 1 Kings, we saw the temple being built. This week, we’re going to see the opening ceremony for the temple. But almost everything in this ceremony will raise questions for us. The answer comes as the chapter pushes us to its heart, to find that forgiveness is the answer of everything that’s happening here, and ultimately, the answer is the forgiveness that Jesus gives us through his cross.

The Wise One (1 Kings 3-4)

By 1 Kings, Talks

One of the hardest things we’ll have to face about ourselves is the fact that we’re inconsistent. Even Solomon, the wisest man in the world, lived an inconsistent life. Luckily for us, Solomon sheds some wisdom on how & how not to live. Which ultimately points us to the truly Wise One – Jesus – who gives us wisdom from above.

Messy Background (1 Kings 1-2)

By 1 Kings, Talks

Most of us try to hide our mess, but Israel’s national history lets it all hang out! As we start 1 Kings, we’ll see even the “golden era” under Solomon has messy beginnings. It leads us to Solomon’s descendant Jesus, born into this messy world, to meet us in our messy lives.

Future Church: Transformation

By Future Church, Talks

Jesus doesn’t just forgive our sins, he frees us from sin. We’re saved from sin’s penalty, and also it’s power. But how do we access that power to change? How do we become the people we were made to be? This week we explore our church’s vision for Transformation, which is gospel-centred, life-directed and community-driven.

Future Church: Community

By Future Church, Talks

Today we’re starting a new series called Future Church. In this four-week vision series we’re going to be thinking about who we are and where we’re going as a church. Jesus tells us that: “Everyone will know that you are my disciples if you love one another.” At Village Church, we aim to show the love of Jesus to one another in everything we do: with open doors, with seats at our dinner tables, over coffee. We’re a community who longs for everyone to feel a real sense of love and belonging, because of the love that Christ has shown us. And that’s what we’re going to be exploring today: How we’re called to be a community who loves one another, to the glory of God.
