Do you feel as if you're living in crisis, a Christian Jekyll & Hyde life? Some days good, some days bad?
This week Andrew teaches us from the life of Saul, how an encounter with Jesus' Love and Grace, empowered and equipped him to change and live a life of Grace upon Grace so that we can learn to reign in life!

Exalting Jesus and magnifying Christ is the work of the Holy Spirit. The One who draws close reminds us that 'It Is Finished', and gives us power to display Jesus to our world. Adam explores Acts 10, where Peter's trusting in that power made it possible for all to encounter Jesus - not just the Jews, but for the Gentiles (you and I). Be encouraged - Jesus, the Lord of all, has deposited his Spirit in you to preach the good news - with power!

There is no one that is beyond the love of Jesus. There is no situation that he cannot turn around. Today Andrew looks at a story that is in the bible to remind us that there are many Christians and believers who sing, read, go to all the conferences, know all the latest stuff but fundamentally need an encounter with Jesus - without that revelation of who Jesus is & the the nature of his finished work of grace, then not much of it makes any sense. Grace though lights up the whole story and your whole life
July 24, 2019
Too often we feel imprisoned by circumstances, fear, illness and false belief. The first apostles were literally imprisoned for the message they were preaching. An angel set them free. The lessons from their story shows us how God's grace is able to set us free from the things that imprison or thinking and lead us into new life.

You have been anointed for a purpose. This new summer series is about how grace shook the world in the book of Acts and how you have been given the very same Spirit for today. You’ll experience more grace in you as you see Jesus impact through you. David encourages us to tune in to God and how He delights about using ordinary people like us to be vessels for him through His Spirit.

“You have been anointed for a purpose. This new summer series is about how grace shook the world in the book of Acts and how you have been given the very same Spirit for today. You’ll experience more grace in you as you see Jesus impact through you. Andrew explains how the words of Jesus “This is the year of the Lord’s favour..” will so encourage you.

Rest does not mean inactivity - it means that we do what God asks us. That is how we experience deeper levels of grace in our lives. Anytime God speaks to us about "doing" it is always for our profit so we need to learn to distinguish between our flesh and being led by the Holy Spirit. If we use grace as an excuse for our flesh then we only rob ourselves - find freedom in this truth!

In a world of turmoil and uncertainty Penny looks at the unshakeable hope we have in our Lord Jesus. She exhorts us to draw again from Jesus our source “ the light of the world” and encourages us that Christ in us is the hope of glory for the world around us. We have a contagious love and we will experience life in all of its fullness when we lay down our our lives for the sake of others.

Jesus is the one with the authority to work in your life. Grace meets you at the end of your 'self'. It's not about your work or your ability - it never was. Jesus chose you out of his love and kindness. Receive Him by faith and see your breakthrough. Allow Jesus to say the word over your situation.

“Nicodemus came to Jesus looking for answers under the cover of night. He had built his life on a system where security, identity and purpose was found in the ability to adhere to a set of rules and accepted norms. In this week’s talk Phil parallels religious performance with a new brand of legalism that suggests we find hope and life in a different set of accepted norms.
There is so much to learn as we look at Jesus’ response to Nicodemus. Rather than dealing with what we do, He goes straight to who we are and shows us that we can only find hope in a new life that has its starting point in a God who loves us deeply.
This talk will inform and challenge how you view legalism and encourage you to see yourself as God sees you - deeply loved.”

Lots of people struggle with physical and mental issues. When we are sick it robs us of the chance to enjoy the rest of our lives. Grace is unmerited favour - we do not deserve Gods kindness in and of ourselves but because of Jesus we are able to walk in wholeness. That is God’s best for you. If you need encouragement and faith then this will lift you
May 22, 2019
What are you afraid of? There's stuff in all of us that worries us and causes pressure & stress. What happens when grace meets your stress? This will really help you - to thrive and do well in a world that is full of pressure! Fear will only ever rob you of what Jesus promised you. It's not about mustering up something in yourself but about seeing Jesus in a whole new way
May 15, 2019
What happens when your mess meets His grace? We tend to label ourselves and take on the labels that others give us - usually based on what we do or when we mess up. When we do that they have power over us and we tend to live up to the labels we take on. When Jesus met a normal working man he showed us what it means to take on a new set of labels that describe not our shortcomings, but the view that Jesus has. And what does He see? Listen and let you tomorrow be shaped by this truth
May 8, 2019
Grace from Jesus is absolutely outrageous. What happens when your mess meets His grace? There is a way out of your bad habits, cycles of defeat, secret vices. We think that our mess and sin is something that makes Jesus loves us less. In fact in this story we see that whilst Jesus never condones sin in us, He never condemns us for it either . This is the way to real freedom.
May 1, 2019
When Jesus free’d you the bible says you are free indeed. Too many Christians still think that they can be affected by other people’s sin. Even generational curses are talked about as almost normal for believers. The truth is nobody & nothing can curse what a God calls blessed. Receive new levels of freedom when you hear this message of grace.
April 25, 2019
Shame. We all know that feeling of not being good enough. Not being as good as someone else. Of being a failure. Shame is not about what we do but who we think we are. Left unchecked it wrecks our health, relationships and future. The great news of Jesus and the Easter story is that He went to the very core of what is wrong with us. He suffered the ultimate shame do that we might be forever free from it.
April 17, 2019
Guilt is a negative emotion that has serious impact on our physical and emotional condition. There’s no natural solution for what is a supernatural need. The world has no answer but in the work of Jesus we see how He dealt with guilt for us. You can live free - really free - from that gnawing sense of guilt that traps many. Listen & be encouraged!
April 10, 2019
“What do people really need?Jesus promises that He will change you from the inside out. He will go right to the heart of the issue and transform us for good. That is what the cross is all about. When you see the cross it is more than a symbol - it is a reminder of the promise that Jesus has given you the chance of a quality of life that nothing else could never come close to.
April 3, 2019
Penny looks at the building blocks in our earthy relationships that God has ordained for us to build our lives around. By studying the story of the Wedding at Cana she explains God’s heart for marriage, family and community and how He sets us up to win in life. She draws out the deeper symbolism in this well known passage and how it all points us to Jesus’ finished work at the cross. The place from which we are to live our lives.
March 27, 2019
The church is a house of grace. In it you find blessing, favour and promises that you do not find outside. The church is also a place of physical, emotional and spiritual healing. Andrew shows how what we do today mirrors the early church and the people of Israel. We see Jesus and we are healed. Let the Lord enlarge your heart to see His church and your part in it the way that He does.
March 20, 2019
“Desmond Tutu said “There comes a point where we need to stop just pulling people out of the river.We need to go upstream and find out why they’re falling in.”
Jesus has given you the church as a place where you can get right to the heart of the issues that we face today. Not just about being rescued from where you are but getting to the root of all sickness, stress, lack and every other manifestation of the curse. Jesus has provided you the answer - the gathering of His people under the gospel of grace will bring answers and freedom that you will never find elsewhere
March 13, 2019
Why would you ever want to build your life outside of a place where Jesus is the head? Headship means authority and that means that in the church everything is under the authority of the King of Kings! God knew every single challenge we would face in these times and He provided the answer. There is a grace that God has built into the church that you cannot find anywhere else - Andrew shows from the OT and the NT how you can find safety, protection & blessing in the church!
March 6, 2019
Where do you find answers to the biggest questions and challenges that you face every day? Where do you go to? Whatever it is you will find the answer in Jesus.God has already made provision for you to experience rest and completeness in the church. That is His plan. There is a grace on the local church that is not found elsewhere. Discover a fresh new view of the gathering of God’s people - A house of Grace!
February 27, 2019
What does your situation look like when you see it through the finished work of Jesus? What does grace do to transform it? Sickness when seen through grace become healed and whole. Discouragement becomes Hope. When you glimpse what the Lord is showing you about the transforming power of His grace then the next step is to be thankful and declare it. There is a power to thanks that releases grace in your life. Be encouraged!

There is something innate within us to ask why!
We want to know who am I and why am I here?
In this weeks’ sermon, Phil dives into the Book of Ecclesiastes and explores how at the root of us all, we are looking for significance, meaning and purpose in life. Phil takes us on a spiritual tour de force, referencing Dostoyevsky, Nietzsche, Kets de Vries, Sartre, Camus and Augustine in an attempt to discover meaning in life under the sun.
But above the sun, we get a different view – our attention should be on the ‘God-given task’ that fills our lives. There is a purpose to how we should spend our time – it’s not meaningless, it’s beautiful and God wants us to enjoy it!
Today, look above the sun, look above your circumstance to see what God has for you in a life that is more than we could possibly dream, imagine or hope for!
February 13, 2019
Ever been disappointed that despite saying words you did not yet see it happen? Allow the Lord to show us what His grace does in any situation then say it out loud. That is the difference. He will show you in your heart a revelation of transformation and then you declare it with your words. What do you want to see grace do? Imagine it and declare it!
February 6, 2019
2019 is a year where you will see the goodness and favour of God in areas that have been stuck. That requires faith - not in you and what you are going to do to see change but faith in what Jesus has already provided by grace.
Jesus asks you the question - What do you see? God has given you the ability to picture and see what His favour looks like in changed around situations - what does it look like to be healed in your head? Restored? Andrew talks about faith comes and grows as we see through the lens of grace. This season is one of the promise of God's blessings pouring down like rain!
January 30, 2019
God wants us to thrive, to live fruitful, purposeful and fulfilling lives connected to Him the source of all things. Today we live in a world crippled by anxiety and fear; daily messages, images and interactions seek to shape how we view ourselves and the world around us. Phil reminds us in this week's message that viewing any situation outside the perspective of God is to live in a world of random connections without purpose or meaning. As His children, God delights in us and wants us to be free from fear and anxiety so that we can enter the destiny He has designed for us.

"God is speaking to us that 2019 is a year when the blessing of God will cause giants in your life to fall. Too many of us have lived under the shadow of a Goliath - life may go on, but it is way short of the promises that we receive through the grace of Jesus. Receive this word for 2019 and believe that you will see your giants fall."
January 16, 2019
Rain in the bible always speaks of blessing. Many of us find it hard to believe for the future because we hold on to the past. That’s why grace matters. Before the torrent of blessings that God has for us He first send us rain (grace) to prepare our hearts - to free us, heal us and redeem us. Prepare yourself for blessing in 2019!
January 9, 2019
How do you get vision for the New Year and faith to believe for your God given call? Last year the Lord spoke to us from Twisted About clearing the way so that fresh hope can come to us and transform our hearts. In this talk Andrew looks at another part of growing in faith - how grace heals you from disappointment and builds faith by connecting you to the more than 7700 promises of God written over your life. Showers of blessing for you in 2019
January 2, 2019
Pastor Marcel was in Belfast to talk about how not only how to hear about grace but also how to receive the fullness that the message has to offer.
But how does that work in real life? Marcel explains how your heart and life can be turned to grace through daily communion and how that picture of Jesus helps us receive.

“Why would the birth of a baby be good news for the whole world? The birth of Jesus was a also a prophetic declaration about what His death would do for us all. Right at the beginning we see pictured in the Christmas story details of his death and resurrection and what that would mean for us all today. Hope, peace, fullness and so much more. “
December 13, 2018
In the last part of this story we look at how Jesus takes people who are on the outside and brings them to a place where all that is His becomes theirs. This is not just for a few - It is what He wants for all - protection, security, rest & provision. When God starts something in your life He brings it through to that place - from grace to grace. Have faith for whoever is in your world that Jesus wants to bring them from being on the outside to fully joined with Him.
December 5, 2018
Do you think that God's goodness is not enough? Boaz is a fantastic picture of Jesus & how he loves you and the people in your world. What does that look like? Why would anyone who does not know Jesus care? How does He impact what really matter to them? Listen and be encouraged - whatever you have received through grace, there is more than enough for the real lives of everyone else
November 28, 2018
Have you ever felt like an outsider? On the edge, not as good as.... Grace is for you. God is the God of the outsider. As we grow in grace we realise that a big part of growing up and maturing is when we see people who need grace and then know that we are the channel for it. It's not just grace for me but also grace for them. Be encouraged from the story of Ruth that grace brings you in.
November 21, 2018
Many of us live with guilt about what we did that had a negative effect on other people - our children, friends, family. We all know our own shortcomings and often we can find ourselves looking back, wishing that we could do things again differently. This offering is a picture of Jesus - Law demanded restitution to be made for our sin against others - Jesus became that offering so that our guilt was dealt with and He repays the debt that you owe. Amazing picture of Jesus and His grace.
November 14, 2018
There is a problem for you if you want to live in a way that is not fully set on the unmerited favour of Jesus in your life. Some Christians are still under the thought that they must do in order for God to do for them. Under that system you have a big problem - what happens when you intentionally sin? Sometimes we sin through ignorance but sometimes we choose it. What happens then? Under the law there is no sacrifice for that. That is why the blood of Jesus is so much more. So much greater than any of your effort or performance. Even at your worst He loves you, forgives you and blesses you still.

The peace offering in Leviticus provided an opportunity for the Israelites to come together, give thanks to God and celebrate His goodness. This week Phil discusses the deeper meaning of the peace offering and how when we give God the best of ourselves we are freed to feast on His provision in every area of our life. This is an encouraging message that reminds us of God's daily provision.
October 31, 2018
This week we continue the journey through the offerings in Leviticus and see how the sacrifices of the burnt offering and grain offering make it possible for God's people to celebrate the full, whole life of Shalom God has provided.
Phil discusses how the symbolism of this rather unusual offering reveals that peace comes from the seat of our being and is revealed from the inside out.
October 24, 2018
In part 4 of our Refresh series Phil discusses how Jesus is revealed in the grain offering. As we consider each of the elements of the offering we see different aspects of Jesus’ sacrifice for us and how we can be brought into relationship with God through Him.
Be encouraged as you see God’s plan unveiled in Jesus’ life.
October 17, 2018
Most believers live with the feeling that they should be doing better - struggling less, seeing more. Only a bigger, clearer revelation of Jesus can roll away the stone- the thought that we have to add to what Jesus has done for us. Andrew this week talks about how all of the sacrifices that people had to make were taken care of in the one perfect sacrifice of Jesus for you. So you could live in rest and live in more.
October 10, 2018
To receive more grace, love & favour then you cannot be in the way! Our own self effort and performance mentality robs us of receiving all that Jesus has done for us. The bible tells us to roll away the stone - to get self out of the way so that life comes. Today Andrew shows us how Jesus' work rolls away the stones of the big areas in our lives - what He did was perfect - every time we see & understand more of His finished work for us then a bit of the stone is rolled away in our lives! Be encouraged!
October 2, 2018
Do you want to experience more grace in every area of your life? The heart of God is that we know Him more every day and live in the goodness of the work of Jesus.
How to receive more? Roll away the stone!
Today Andrew shows us from the word what that means and why it will lead to more grace in you every day.
September 19, 2018
So often we get fixated on reaching the destination yet God often has so much to reveal of Himself as we walk with Him. Sometimes our experiences can cause us to downgrade our expectations and our hope for the future. In this message, Phil considers the journey of two despondent disciples on the road to Emmaus who were able to build a greater understanding and relationship with Jesus as He walked with them. God loves to draw alongside us wherever we may be. As we see God's great story revealed in the person of Jesus, our view of life and vision for the future are transformed and our hope restored.
September 12, 2018
Pastor Josh McCauley from Redemption Church in Johannesburg South Africa spoke this week at Exchange. Be blessed and encouraged by this powerful message !
September 5, 2018
Grace is more than encouraging words or good theology. Jesus wants you to access and live in the good of all His work. He told us to remember Him through communion - It is more than a symbol but a way of living in wholeness every day. Learn the healing you can receive as you make communion a rhythm in your life and access more of the blessing of God in your life.
