Jesus and the Sinful Woman
Luke 7

This message goes through the account of the prostitute washing Jesus’ hair with her feet. Steve encourages the listener to compare and contrast the woman and the man Simon who’s house they were in. One was interested in being good, the other was interested in God. Ultimately everyone is morally bankrupt and in need of a saviour

Selected Series
Sex Etc
[ 7 Episodes ] 13 January 2013 - 10 March 2013
How should Jesus followers live in a sex saturated world? Ultimately sex images the God you worship. It's either loving relational and self giving or it's all about power, control and self-gratification. The series journeys through Jesus our True Husband, Singleness, Marriage, Pornography, and Sexual Orientation.

How to Look Good Naked
Genesis 2-3
All of us, like our first parents, are tempted at one time or another to hide behind the fig leaves of the image we create to cover our shame and the naked truth about us. Dave Bish brilliantly encourages us to be clothed in Jesus, as only in Jesus can we be ourselves and feel no shame.

Gospel Centred Marriage & Family
Matthew 12: 46-49
It's often said God, Marriage and Family, then Church but this is false choice because we see marriage and family as something we are, whilst church and mission as something we do. If we find our identity in Jesus and the big story of the Gospel this will create marriages and families that are not turmed in but turn out and fulfilled by Jesus and the Gospel.

Singleness in the Gospel Community
1 Corinthians 7
Unashamably drawing from Tim Keller's chapter on singleness in his book "The meaning of marriage", Howard shows how both over-desire and under-desire for marriage misshapes the lives of singles (and married couples), and appeals for a positive view of singleness in Godfirst.

Sex: Irresistable, Indecent or Image?
1 Corinthians 6
Sex is more than animal desires because we are more than pipes and plumbing, glands and groan. Sex is spiritaul. Sex is not dirty or demeaning in it's God given shape. Christianity is the most body positive faith on the planet.
