Sunday Night Topics helps us consider how the good news about Jesus connects up to specific issues we face. SNTs will never be the last word on a topic, but they might help you as a first word, opening an issue up for further conversation.
Each week follows a similar format: a talk from the front, then discussion around tables, then open Q&A. You don’t need to believe anything in particular to take part and you can speak as little or as much as you like.
29 Jan | 121s
You may have picked up that lots of Christians choose, at some point in their life or another, to meet regularly with another believer to read the Bible together. Why do they do this? And how can they do it in a way that will be most helpful?
5 Feb | Transgenderism
Some of us may feel that our gender does not sit comfortably with the sex we were assigned at birth. How does Jesus call us to respond to that? And how can the rest of us best love, serve and relate to trans people?
12 Feb | Resting well
The sermon will be on Genesis 2:1-3, where the idea of rest is introduced in the Bible. We will take some time to drill down into what the Bible teaches and how to apply it to London life!
19 Feb | Your mind matters
Nobody wants a cold, joyless, intellectual Christianity. But where does this leave the place of intellect and knowledge in the Christian life? Are faith and reason at odds with each other?
26 Feb | Ideas for loving our neighbours well
Jesus calls his followers to “love your neighbour as yourself”. What could this look like in reality? In what ways might we best bless and serve our neighbours? Come and hear from some of our church family as to how they’ve thought these things through.
5 March | Genesis Q&A
12 March | Should I consider paid word ministry?
Every generation should seek to raise up gospel workers who are gifted to equip the church for ministry. How do we know who these people are and what do we need to consider if we think that might be us?
19 March | How not to be ruled by your phone
Smartphones promise to enhance our experience of life in countless ways but some people feel like their phone has completely taken over. Do we need a complete detox and bring back the brick phone? How can we live in harmony with our technology?
26 March | How to get on with your parents
The fifth commandment is to honour our parents. How does this evolve over time and how do we do it if our parents want different things for us than Jesus does?
