A Prophetic People
To live a prophetic life is to obey God whatever the cost, to speak His truth even when no-one wants to hear it, to be filled with the Spirit of God rather than the spirit of the age. Our preaching series, “A Prophetic People” will explore what this can look like in Scotland today.
Hosea: Lessons in Faithfulness
2016-05-15 - Nathanael Smith
The book of Hosea, although it tells the strange story of a man marrying an adulterous woman, is ultimately about God's love for his people. Today, it calls us to respond wholeheartedly to God.

2016-05-29 - Dan Hudson
The book of Jonah is prophetic not because of the words Jonah speaks (only one sentence is recorded), but because his story speaks prophetically to us as the church today that we are to be people shaped by God’s mercy. If God can work with people like Jonah and use them, he can certainly use you and me.
