This week we asked the question, ‘how can we build trust?’ and it was a timely message in light of the terror attack in New Zealand. We looked at how Jesus is both trustworthy and entrusting whilst also thinking through how we can be a trustworthy community.
The week Amy continued our ‘The Struggle is Real’ series by asking us the question, who’s identity are you stealing?! She challenged us to consider whether or not we’re being true to our God given identity in Him and to seriously ask ourselves, ‘what am I believing about myself?’

Following last weeks vision talk, this week, Nic spoke to us from the story of Zacchaeus that is found in Luke 19:1-10. The topic was the value of grace, which is one of our three core values here at Christ Central.
On Sunday Seth shared with us the vision of Christ Central, explaining that we exist to help people find their place in God’s big story. Listen here to find out what that practically looks like.
On the final week of Alpha, Nic looked at what the Bible says the church is meant to look like. He recognised that history doesn't always paint the church in the best light and spoke about how Christ Central wants to reimagine what church life can look like.
On the penultimate week on Alpha, this week, Seth asked how can we go all in when it comes to faith in Jesus? He challenged us to think about what God is saying to us and what are we doing about it.
On week seven of our Alpha series. Nic asks and answers the question 'Does God heal today?' In this message we look at the big picture of the Bible when it comes to healing as well as some key values we must hold on to when praying for healing and dealing with suffering.
This week we took a look at what the Bible says about the Holy Spirit, delving into the truth the God is Three Persons but One God.
This week Nic looked at probably one of the most important questions we will ever ask ourselves and that is ‘Did Jesus really rise from the dead?' He made the case that Christianity rises and falls on this one question!
This week, on Alpha, Seth asked the question, why did Jesus die? And we spent the morning exploring how in the story of Christianity, forgiveness is not something to earn but a gift to receive.
On week three of Alpha we asked the questions, can I trust the Bible and who was Jesus? Seth showed us that how reliable the Bible is as a historical document and shared some of the claims of Jesus.
On week two of Alpha we tackled the topic of ‘Science and faith’ and watched a talk by Andrew Wilson. Andrew is a Pastor, author and internationally recognised theologian based in Eastbourne, England.
In this talk he speaks about how science is only part of the picture that helps us understand why we are here and how we need to engage with both science and faith in order to achieve a fuller picture of the meaning and purpose of life.
On week one of Alpha Nic spoke to us asking the questions ‘Christianity; is it boring, irrelevant and untrue?’ He shared his own story of coming to faith and also looked at three huge claims that Jesus made in John 14.
