‘Philip and the Eunuch’ / Neil Dawson
Jun 27 • 34 min
Acts 8 recounts the story of the Ethiopian treasurer. God chased after him as he walked away from Jerusalem, and the Spirit sent Philip to meet him. What did God see in someone who was seen by many as a “lesser” man?
‘Simple. The Seed of Life’ / David McBride
Jun 20 • 39 min
In this season it can be easy to become overwhelmed with what we have around us or are facing on a daily basis, but the kingdom of God is one of “opposites”, less is more, lower is higher and simple is significant. In this talk we look at how God wants us…
‘Up to the Mountain to Pray’ / Neil Dawson
Jun 13 • 33 min
Twice, Jesus brought his disciples up a mountain to pray. One time was met with sadness and sorrow as Jesus prepared for his death. The other time – Jesus’ transfiguration – they saw his glory. God makes it clear that what he has to say is through his Son.

‘Dealing With Disappointment’ / Amy Anderson
May 30 • 25 min
We all face disappointments in life. But sometimes we allow ourselves to become comfortable with being disappointed. When that happens, not only can it affect our identity, but it can affect our relationship with God and impact our ability to have…
‘Out of the Wilderness’ / Neil Dawson
May 23 • 34 min
What was it that sustained Jesus during his time of testing in the wilderness, which caused him to come out in the power of the Spirit? With Jesus as our example, what is it we need to change in our lives when we come out of this place of testing?
‘Repentance: A Journey. Not a Destination’ / David McBride
May 16 • 37 min
Repentance. It’s one of those words that scares, confuses or is misunderstood. My heart is that we get a basic grasp that of the power and beauty that there is in repentance. The fact that it is the building block of our relationship with Jesus. It’s not…
‘The Faithful Father’ / Neil Dawson
May 9 • 26 min
How do you view the Father? Do we see him as a figure of condemnation and judgement or a person of kindness? All the way through Scripture, the Father continually shows his fairness, love and kindness to his people.
Are we guilty of projecting our own…
‘Service’ / Neil Dawson
May 6 • 30 min
Do we serve with humility or the hope that we will be recognised?
‘Legacy that will Last’ / Neville Garland
May 2 • 24 min
What will the people of God be remembered for in this great time of change? The fruit of the spirit — kindness and goodness — has been spoken deep into all our hearts! Will we allow these fruits to speak to the world around us?
‘Simplicity’ / Neil Dawson
Apr 29 • 26 min
We’re surrounded by stuff that distracts us.
‘A Letter From Lockdown’ / Neil Dawson
Apr 25 • 28 min

‘Solitude’ / Neil Dawson

‘Solitude’ / Neil Dawson by Grace Community Church
‘Five Responses’ / Neil Dawson
Apr 18 • 24 min
After the Resurrection, the immediate responses from the people who met him – Peter, Thomas and the two disciples on the Road to Emmaus – were a mixture of discouragement and doubt. But we also get a chance to hear Jesus’ response to them, which is quite…

‘Restored’ / Neil Dawson
Apr 11 • 27 min
God’s plan was to dwell with his people. Easter marks that point in history where the division between God and man was torn in two, death was defeated and a new Kingdom, and a new hope, was established.
‘Digging Ditches’ / David McBride
Apr 4 • 33 min
We are a Kingdom of priests. And during this time, it’s time to dig ditches that God will fill with water. When his army was surrounded, and there was no water, Jehoshaphat asked for a prophet. The Lord came to Elisha and said he would fill the ditches…
‘Your Treasure’ / Neil Dawson
Mar 28 • 25 min
These times have proven that the world is a very uncertain place, therefore we should not hold on to earthly treasure. Lockdown exposes where your heart truly is. What you miss the most reveals what you value. In Matthew 6, Jesus reminds us that our…

‘Our Ordinary Transformed into His Extraordinary’ / Neville Garland
Mar 14 • 37 min
Within the enemy’s army, David faced, there was Goliath. A man standing nine foot tall. When ordinary people are called to face extraordinary situations, He often calls us to think differently – often outside the norm. In these extraordinary times, you…
‘Transformation’ / Neil Dawson
Mar 7 • 25 min
Our vision for our lives, church and community is to see ​“transformation”. Complimenting the values of the church (SIMPLE), we believe that to see transformation there must be a balance in our relationships. Using the triangle metaphor, the ​“UP”…
‘The Lampstand’ / Aaron Molesky
Feb 29 • 29 min
What are the deeds of your first love? When Jesus visited the Seven Churches in Revelation, his warning to the Church in Ephesus likely took the ​“good looking” church by surprise. Despite their hard work and perseverance, they had left their first love.…
‘Scripture’ (2020) / Neil Dawson
Feb 15 • 39 min
The scriptures can be used to make a point, or even condemn. But they always point to Jesus. 2 practical approaches: Lectio divina (eg. Psalm 1) Find yourself in the story (eg. John 9)
‘Identity’ (2020) / Neil Dawson
Feb 8 • 34 min
What does it take for us to realise that we are Sons and Daughters? Understanding who we are in Christ can change, dramatically, how we do Church. It turns out, according to Jesus, water is thicker than blood.
‘Missional’ (2020) / Neil Dawson
Feb 1 • 33 min
Of course missional living involves going out and serving, but it begins where you are right now: how you serve missionally in your local church family. Our dream is that we are so missional that we take every opportunity to be a blessing to others,…

‘Everyone, Everyday, Everywhere’ (2020) / Neil Dawson
Jan 11 • 40 min
We return to the word Ekklesia, which is the called out people for the welfare of a community. As we start at the end of SIMPLE, E (representing “Everyone, Everyday, Everywhere”) how do meet the welfare of our workplaces, schools and social gatherings?…
‘Simple: A Rebalancing’ / Neil Dawson
Jan 4 • 22 min
Five years ago we set out our church values. At the start of 2020, it feels appropriate to revisit them. This time we will be approaching it in reverse order. In three weeks, we will be looking at P (Presence and Prayer), and to prepare we are suggesting…
‘Eternity Now’ / Neil Dawson
Dec 28, 2019 • 36 min
As we look to a new year and a new decade, we are suggesting eternal life isn’t something that happens later but starts now. We ask the questions, “What is God asking us, and how do we respond?”
‘A Thrill of Hope’ / Neil Dawson
Dec 21, 2019 • 15 min
God’s upside-down Kingdom was established in humility rather than earthly majesty. Christmas has become a difficult time of the year for those on the margins of society, counter to what Jesus came to do. He came to set free the poor and oppressed.
‘Sounds of Silence’ / Amy Anderson
Dec 14, 2019 • 34 min
Between God making a promise and fulfilling the promise, there can be long periods of silence.
‘The King’s Tabernacle’ / David McBride
Dec 7, 2019 • 45 min
Saul never pursued the presence of God. And for a whole generation no one encountered Him. When David became king he led by example: he became vulnerable so the glory of God could shine through.
‘Moved into the Neighbourhood’ / Neil Dawson
Nov 30, 2019 • 45 min
What is it that breaks your heart? What risk are you going to take? Simply going to church and attending meetings is not going to change the neighbourhood around us. What are we willing to sacrifice?
‘On Vocation’ / Neville Garland
Nov 23, 2019 • 47 min
Our vocation is what we bring to the world we’re in. What if our vocation was a vehicle for bringing the kingdom to our workplaces? Here’s the challenge: what do we do with our gifts and talents?
‘Designed to Flourish’ / Neil Dawson
Nov 16, 2019 • 38 min
What would it look like if we lived questionable lives? That people would take notice and ask questions. We still need all five gifts because the church is not yet united. We are designed to flourish at home and in our workplaces until his e we irk is…
‘Flourishing in the Marketplace’ / Jenna Chaviel, Andrew Gribben
Nov 9, 2019 • 46 min
Jenna and Andrew share their thoughts on being a Christian in the workplace. Neil introduces the morning by suggesting separating work and worship is a mistake, in fact both share the same Hebrew word: ‘avoda’

Neville tells his story of how he got to where he is now and what he’s looking forward to in his life as a church leader.
‘A New Freedom’ / Neil Dawson
Oct 19, 2019 • 40 min
Christ died so that you would know freedom from the rules and traditions. When we focus on the ‘don’t’s we deny the joy in freedom.
‘Called Out, Called To’ / Stuart Argue
Oct 12, 2019 • 43 min
Standing in front of a cave in Caeserea Philippi, Jesus promised to build his church and the gates of hell, represented by the gate, would not overcome it. The church is not Sunday morning meetings, programmes or even the kingdom. It’s you and me — the…
‘Holiness’ / Neil Dawson
Oct 5, 2019 • 35 min
When we say the word holiness, the way we act, where we go and, even, what we wear comes to mind. As we look into Scripture and what it says on the subject, it becomes more apparent that it’s about what we’re devoted to. As we become more and more like…
‘Power of the Table’ / David McBride
Sep 28, 2019 • 43 min
The table is a gift, a tool and a weapon. How often we take communion and where we take it is not important. It is our posture that matters. The bread and the wine carry a lot of meaning, but the key to the bread is thankfulness, and the wine is…
‘Beautiful Grace’ / Neil Dawson
Sep 21, 2019 • 43 min
In a world of increasing judgement the church needs to communicate grace. Every person you meet, Jesus has said “yes” to. As we read Galatians we see that Paul was hurt to see that shortly after he preached a gospel of grace, the church fell foul to the…
‘A Kind of Love’ / Amy Anderson
Sep 14, 2019 • 23 min
There have been 100 million songs written about love and 700 films have been released this year that have love as a theme. There are hundreds of online dating apps. Love seems to be everywhere, but this is clearly a broken world. The essence of God is…
‘Look Up’ / Neil Dawson
Sep 7, 2019 • 46 min
As we continue to look at the Bride of Christ, we need to challenge the “church shopping” culture that is slowly weakening the core focus of why the church exists. Church shopping means we focus on the performance, the preaching and the professionalism…
‘Church: Why Bother?’ / Neil Dawson
Aug 31, 2019 • 35 min
The start of a new series focussing on the Church: an institution that is loved and hated both inside and outside of it. Have we forgotten why Christ designed it how he did? Have we elevated the wrong things and forgotten the aspects that truly make it…
‘Being Mr Nobody’ / Amy Anderson
Aug 24, 2019 • 22 min
Purely by existing we’re significant to God. But in God’s kingdom things are a bit more upside-down, and what significance looks like in society is different to what it looks like in the kingdom. Quite often, it’s the ones who recognise their smallness,…
‘The Untouchables?’ / Neil Dawson
Aug 17, 2019 • 33 min
In India there is a Caste system that divides people based on their social status. The lowest are called the Dalits. These people had become known as the untouchables, considered lower than the animals. Jesus made a point of – not only meeting people like…
‘The One Who Sees’ / Neil Dawson
Aug 10, 2019 • 31 min
We often get wrong how we treat people outside the church. We’re quick to point out where people are breaking the “rules”, where we should be approaching the situation with an ear to listen and a heart to love.
‘Jesus and Peter: Gone Fishing’ / Neville Garland
Aug 3, 2019 • 46 min
There is no doubt that a great desire in our churches is to see people saved; to see our communities transformed; to see breakthrough with out friends and family. Jesus’ desire is for us to listen to him and obey him. Only then, will we see lives changed.
‘The Gospel Embodied’ / Neil Dawson
Jul 28, 2019 • 40 min
It’s relatively easy to “share the Gospel” with our words, but – looking at Paul and Silas’ story in Acts 16 and 17 – carrying the Gospel in how we live is where the real challenge is.
‘Love and Authority’ / David McBride
Jul 20, 2019 • 49 min
In Acts 19, Paul demonstrated that what he was able to do in his ministry depended on a deep relationship with the Father. Can love and authority go hand-in-hand? If anything, what Paul showed, was – as a Christian – it can’t be anything else.
‘The Wild Goose’ / Neil Dawson
Jul 6, 2019 • 44 min
Have we become so accustomed to being cautious that it’s become a form of laziness? A laziness that’s missing out on what Jesus has for us? The Celtic Christians had a name for the Holy Spirit – the Wild Goose. It’s a contrast from the peaceful dove…
‘Am I Stuck?’ / Neil Dawson
Jun 29, 2019 • 34 min
Christ called us to repentance. Not just from the obvious sins in our lives, but a repentance from a way of thinking. A thinking that’s been allowed to take root, causing us to become… stuck.
‘Called to Carry Peace’ / Matt Hogarty
Jun 22, 2019 • 74 min
On his way to see Jairus’s sick daughter, a woman, who had been bleeding for twelve years, touched his clothes and she was immediately healed. A story we’ve heard so often carries much more weight than we often give it credit for. This woman is symbolic…
‘United in the Father’ / Amy Anderson, with Frances Anderson
Jun 15, 2019 • 31 min
Sometimes we need reminded that we are sons and daughters, united in the Father. Sadly, the church does not always display this truth and divisions can cause an orphan spirit to enter. Let’s remember the truth… that God loves us and longs for us to love…
‘Outpouring’ / David Legge
Jun 8, 2019 • 43 min
On Pentecost Sunday, we look at Acts 2, and the power of the Holy Spirit. The gifts that we’re given have purpose in the kingdom of God. As we spread the word, in our families, communities, and beyond, without the power of the Holy Spirit, we’re very…
‘The Other’ / Brent Steeves
Jun 1, 2019 • 38 min
As we read the three familiar parables of the lost sheep, lost coin and lost son, it takes a moment to turn our mind to the person – or the people – who are not the focus of the story. We might learn surprising things about ourselves, and God himself.
‘Entrusted’ / Neil Dawson
May 25, 2019 • 48 min
The Parable of the Talents has brutal truth about what happens when we don’t invest what we’ve been entrusted with. Jesus repeatedly charges his disciples with the thought that if you can be entrusted with the small things, he will move you on to greater…
‘How will they hear?’ / Darren McClatchey
May 18, 2019 • 39 min
​What if we were to see God move in our community in a way that people encounter Jesus for the first time – in a real, life-changing way?
‘Picture or Window?’ / Neil Dawson
May 11, 2019 • 45 min
If the Bible is not a rule book, or an owner’s manual (as it’s often – wrongly – described), then what is it. Well, it’s certainly not easy to understand. Especially where God seems uncharacteristically cruel.
‘The Spirit of Caleb’ / Neil Dawson
May 4, 2019 • 42 min
We are comfortable where we are. We’ve been freed, why step into enemy territory? We need a Caleb. A spirit that gets rid of settling for mediocrity. It can be done. Practically walking through our towns or villages means we can’t help but intentionally…
‘Wade in the Water’ / David McBride
Apr 27, 2019 • 39 min
As the Father calls us out into the water, how does a church fellowship become a vital part in the community around it. We also look at the inspiration behind the old spiritual and gleam lessons from this period in history.
‘Peacemaker’ / Neil Dawson
Apr 20, 2019 • 45 min
When Jesus first appeared to the disciples in the upper room, the first thing he said was “shalom” (peace be with you).

‘Flourish’ / Neil Dawson
Mar 30, 2019 • 27 min
Women: don’t let your gender be the reason you can’t fulfil God’s call on your life. Neil looks at Romans 16 – rarely preached on – and finds how women were key to the growth of the early church.
‘No Worship Without Surrender’ / Neil Dawson
Mar 23, 2019 • 31 min
What is it I’m giving away for the sake of my community that is costly? What am I willing to sacrifice? We can’t worship without surrendering.
‘The Sixth Altar’ / Neil Dawson
Mar 16, 2019 • 35 min
If we are wanting to just get through – just to stay on the shore – we will be content to sing songs on a Sunday, with our one-hour devotions, with attending meetings, but what does it mean to go after “breakthrough”? To worship in spirit and truth?
‘Posture Towards Presence’ / Neil Dawson
Mar 2, 2019 • 29 min
We’re living in a place and in a time where God seems silence. Maybe he’s looking for a people who are going to posture themselves to listen to him.
‘Lead Me to Wholeness’ / Neil Dawson.
Feb 23, 2019 • 32 min
Search me, O God. Test me. Know me. Maybe we need to stop, lie down, .let God search me, and lead me to wholeness.
‘Clay’ / Stuart Argue
Feb 16, 2019 • 39 min
For God to mould and change us we need to position ourselves.
‘Get Real With Prayer’ / Neil Dawson
Feb 9, 2019 • 29 min
If you’re honest, you probably struggle to pray. And when you do it’s hard to be real with God, even though that is what he wants with us. He wants us at our worst as well as our best.
‘Set Your Mind On Him’ / Neville Garland
Jan 26, 2019 • 31 min
When Jesus spoke, he spoke the words his Father gave him. His will wasn’t his own but that of the Father’s. How do we get to that place where we hear clearly from Him?
‘Lord, Teach Me To Pray’ / Neil Dawson
Jan 19, 2019 • 40 min
Going deeper with God isn’t possible without going deeper in prayer. How do we align our heart’s with His? Are we using language, such as ‘give me’ rather than ‘show me’. Let’s seek His kingdom first.
‘A Forerunner For The Kingdom’ / David McBride
Jan 12, 2019 • 42 min
David continues our new series by looking at how we can go deeper when we let God define who we are.

‘Ordinary People, Extraordinary God’ Pt 3 / Neville Garland

‘The Table’ / Neil Dawson
Oct 6, 2018 • 39 min

‘Strong and Courageous’ / Ronnie Dawson

‘From the Ordinary to the Extraordinary’ / David McBride
Sep 22, 2018 • 40 min
The devil hates unity. It’s our best defence. Yet, so often resentment amongst relationships creeps in.
‘Reconciliation and Restoration’ / Neil Dawson
Sep 15, 2018 • 42 min
A look at Matthew 18 and Matthew 7. Where two are three are gathered, how do we approach sin in a way that is loving, restorative and Christ-honouring?
‘Present in the Ordinary’ / Neil Dawson
Sep 8, 2018 • 28 min
God is always here. When is God’s will not being done? Where is he not working? Maybe God has already showed up, he’s just waiting for us to notice.

Neil introduces our new series looking at how people like you and me were able to make huge differences to in God’s Kingdom.
‘Called to be a People Who Live by Promise’ / Neville Garland
Aug 25, 2018 • 43 min
Are we building our lives on performance or a “promise”? Our culture is performance-based, but is this undermining the promise or abundance God has on our lives?
‘Stephen’s Final Words’ / Neil Dawson
Jul 28, 2018 • 42 min
Before his stoning, Stephen delivered a devastating message to his executioners. Instead of just putting ourselves in Stephen’s shoes, how do we learn from what he has to teach us? How does the church save itself from missing the point entirely?

‘Jesus is Normal’ / Amy Anderson
Jun 2, 2018 • 30 min
What if normal looked like transforming our communities by compassion? What if normal was not just seeing people where they are at but calling out the potential we see in those around us? What if normal was living in relationship with our Heavenly Father?
‘Jesus is Faithful’ / David McBride
May 26, 2018 • 39 min
We see how faithful God is when we read Daniel’s story. Faith is submitting to the Father even when it’s different from what we want. Faith comes from God’s faithfulness not from what we can do. God is looking for people who will say ‘I want to be…
‘Jesus is Grace’ / Neil Dawson
May 19, 2018 • 31 min
Jesus is more interested in revealing God as father than a distant deity. Jesus wasn’t rescuing us from an angry God but He was revealing the truth of Who God is. Jesus is more interesting in restoring humanity than punishing it. Jesus is more interested…
