I am a Prayer – The Story of a Gaggle of Words

I am a prayer. In haste I was put together at approximately 10:03 yesterday morning. There is nothing in my appearance that would attract you to me. I’m not like Beckham – more like Rooney. I’ve got no rhythm and no rhythm, no punctuation, no onomatopoeia, no cutting edge – no mojo. I’m half-baked: Each word held together simply by the string of a sincere heart of the one who prayed me into existence.


In a world where people want a Nirvana of a stress free life, Dave Gilpin turns up the heat on what a purpose driven life looks like in the modern world. He also explains the latest move of Hope City Church to become a C3 Church under the leadership of Ps Phil and Chris Pringle, based at C3 Church in Oxford Falls, who over see the global movement of C3.

My Brand New Jacket – Reinvinting You

Dave Gilpin is sporting his brand new jacket and has his reinventing hat on. Preaching live in Sheffield on our First Fruits Offering Sunday Dave encourages us to make a start on the future we believe belongs to us. Changing an attitude, making a shift in direction or investing some time towards it prophesies over your future. Don’t despise the day of small beginings. Your future awaits.

Talking Frogs

If you don’t know what you want, you’ll get what you’re given. Dave Gilpin encourages us to dig deep and discover what we really really want. There’s a gap of frustration between what we accept in life over what we really really want. Here’s how you persue the life you were called to live over the one we scrape together…

Who Are You?

We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are. Our identity determines our future. Stop asking what God’s will is. God’s will is you – your identity, who you are. Life doesn’t come through being purpose driven, but being identity lead. Part live, part on-location, this podcast will show you how.

Hashtag Crazy

Shift Happens – Cloud Shifting

Most look above their heads and see clouds as an incovenient sorry sight, but Dave Gilpin begs to differ when it comes to the weather system looming over our outlook on 2012. He argues that it’s up to us to decide where the clouds ascend to and in turn where the rain falls. It’s down to our prayer and faith to lift the clouds from the low lands of faith to the highlands of faith. Every cloud carries the promises of God for our churches, ministries and personal lives. It’s time to shift the clouds. The storm contains the rain that brings the fruitfulness we’ve been praying for fo years.

Life Stages – The Wall Of Grace

In every new season or life stage we transition into, God’s grace and favour goes ahead of us.
