NOTHING MORE.

Most of the people you know aren’t as vindictive or as deliberately forgetful as you think. They are simply thoughtless. The invite they never sent to you- thoughtless; that reply to your back to back texts- thoughtless; that present that never arrived- thoughtless; that praise you never got and that mention that never came- all completely thoughtless (you are as well so don’t be too harsh). Yet our thoughtlessness is one of God’s greatest tools in his travel bag of medicines and stuff that helps humans out. 95% of the time the person you’re blaming knows nothing of it. They’re oblivious (times of deliberate spite or ignorance are rarer than you think). God simply wants you to be less glued to the praises of others and more ‘sticky’ to the praises and promises of God. It’s in the silences and in the apparent yet imaginary rejections that you get your chance to revisit the origins of your life- the one who sent you out on your journey to begin with. He’s the one who actually sent you with the proviso that you both remember your sender plus love the world MORE than it loves you. Cause that’s exactly what Christ is doing to you. Their mindlessness is God’s opportunity to come back into our heart as the most special amongst friends and for us to really know that what He thinks is all that matters. And if there is any form of injustice, He will sort that out and turn the tables around. He did it for Joseph and He will do it for you.

Perfectionism: Therapy Time

God’s vision for you is not perfection. It’s less than that. It’s excellence. Recorded at Hope City Sheffield, this message will both deliver you and reset you for an easier, more productive future.

Silverdale Road: Time and chance happen to everyone

More British sporting stars have been created on this one street than any other street in England. Why? Because those who lived there were custodians of an unusual set of circumstances and opportunities. People think that talent is king, yet Silverdale Road tells us a different story. And this story

Optical: A vision called you.

OPTICAL A vision called you. When Dave Gilpin drove his new car into a car wash he forgot who he actually was for a moment. He found himself hitting his own forehead twice with the palm of his hand in front of the car wash employee because he didn’t do

Thank you midfielders for-
Not hogging the ball
Not walking off with the ball
Not avoiding the ball
Not over kicking the ball
Not missing the ball
Not dribbling the ball
Not quitting when you lost the ball

Thank you midfielders for-
Your kicks of prayer
Your passes of generosity
Your headers of kind thoughts
Your flexibility in style
Your small glances of knowing
Your slides of ownership

Much love.

Dangerous Liaisons

Our greatest danger is that we stop being dangerous and play life safe. Knowing that Jesus reigns over everything changes everything. Faith exists only in the thin blue line between hope and danger. When Peter stepped out of the boat, he confronted the possibility of drowning with the possibility of

The Interview: Dave Gilpin Talking to Himself

This in-house production will make little sense unless you know the personalities of the Lead Pastors of Hope City Church! It’s entirely tongue n cheek. Yet, even if you know nothing of the church, this ‘conversation’ will amuse even the hardest of religious souls! Please…. there’s nothing serious about this!

The Leadership Knife Edge

Pastors Dave and Jenny Gilpin tag team in talking through knife edge issues of leadership in the church today. It begins with the need to create feedback friendly churches and the huge challenge of not seeing correction as rejection in an age where everyone has a rejection complex.
