Think Big Act Small

Behind every breakthrough you’ll often find a breakdown. It’s the place of divine exchange. Dave Gilpin shares intimately from his wife Jenny’s personal journals where in the midst of despair she attempted to thing big yet act small, leading to one of the greatest victories Hope City Church has ever seen.

The Next You

The mantra of our age is not only ‘be yourself’ but ‘find yourself’. Yet the imprint of the New Testament is not to find yourself but to define yourself. It’s not what the Word of God says about you that ultimately counts, it’s what YOU say about you. Your definition of yourself will either align you with God’s truth, and release its power upon your life, or alienate you from truth and render it redundant to your life and world.

The Next You

Whatever you do don’t play into the mantra of this age by trying to find yourself. It’s complicated. You’re complicated. You need to define yourself, not find yourself. This message will explain everything you need to know about The Next You. It maybe time for a rebrand. You are too important to be left in the past.

Shake it Off (Players are Gonna Play)

“Players gonna play…Haters gonna hate…I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, I shake it off, I shake it off.” Leadership lessons from Taylor Swift.

Blood Brothers

When Jesus said this is the blood of my covenant, he meant that he was about to become our blood brother. It means that your troubles are now restricted, your needs have already been provided for and your life is protected. There’s a contract over your life.

The Third Culture

Our churches are filled with Third Culture People – people who grew up in a different culture to the one which their parents grew up in. Third Culture Kids (3CKs) share a sense of not quite belonging to any place – when asked ‘Where do you come from?’, their answer is always: ‘Then we moved to…then we moved to…’. This is about their journey, their fight, their future. This is about every church in every city all over the world.

Saints in Rows
