How to Listen to Ministry (10 min)

Dan Shutt opened a conference some years ago with a sobering word of ministry on “how we should listen to ministry”.

Christianity in the Information Age (30 min)

This is a powerful and relevant message for old and young, parents and children,…

Why This Waste? (34 min)

How will you spend the life God has given you? (Message preached 27th Mar 2016)
