Watch/Listen to Past Services
Some people cannot imagine not praying. Every breath, for them, is a prayer. Some people think prayer is as imaginary as unicorns and leprechauns. Most of us fall somewhere in the middle of those two extremes. We believe in God. We know we should pray. Yet we struggle with it. Once, Jesus’ disciples asked him to teach them how to pray. That’s when he gave them what we know as the Lord’s Prayer. It is so compact you can tweet it and still have room for a few more characters. But it’s breadth and depth are staggering. Join us as we ask some hard questions and learn some lasting truths about talking to God.
Old is in. Craftsman style architecture. Vintage clothing. Going old-school. Classic cars. Throwback Thursdays. Distressed furniture. It’s like everyone from architects to fashion designers to hipsters wants to reach back and grab the best of the past. In this series we’ll rummage around in the attic of the New Testament – the book of Acts – to see how they did it back in the day.
For nearly a century and half, the people of Jerusalem had been stepping over the rubble of its ruins. They grew accustomed to the brokenness. They settled for a sense of physical forsakenness. No one cared. Until somebody did. Nehemiah didn’t just rebuild a city – he restored a community. In this series we’ll try to be honest about what’s broken in our lives, but hopeful about what happens when people pray, work together and rely on God.
Noah had a drinking problem. Moses murdered a man before he became Israel’s deliverer. Abraham told his wife to pretend she was his sister to save his own skin. Jacob lied to his father and swindled his brother. David committed adultery and murder. One of the amazing things about the Bible is its honesty. The heroes and heroines are never pristine. The paths they walk are never straight. So, if you or your family has a story you’d rather not tell, you are not alone. Here’s the good news: God did not give up on them and he won’t give up on you – or your family.
Each May, we honor the Twickenham youth who are about to graduate.

It’s the story you wish you could hear for the first time all over again. It’s the story that never gets old. It is simply the Best Story Ever.
The community of Jesus began on a cross, not a sofa. It is summoned to an unconventional lifestyle into a messy family that requires superhuman love. It’s awkward. And it is a gift.
Human beings have been telling stories since prehistoric hunters sat around the campfire stretching the truth about the one that got away or depicting the hunt with pigment paint on cave walls. Stories have power. They help us remember what happened. They leap over the walls we build between us, tunnel under our defenses and drag us onto common ground. So in this series – and throughout the year – we’re going to hear stories. Lots of them.
