Intimacy requires quality time. Quality time allows you to know more about the person you have an interest in. In this way, you are able to develop strong and lasting bonds with the one you love.

Join us this November as we continue to explore the life-changing intimate moments that Jesus spent with a variety of individuals. You will see what these individuals saw in Jesus, how He impacted their lives and discover how we can have the same experiences even now!

Morning Programme


5 November
Youth Focus


Sermon Topic: How Close


Speaker: Luke Prendergast


Summary:  God loves us and he wants to be with us. Love involves being intimate. Distance bothers God. How close are you to him? Jesus is always close to his Father and he invites us to share that close space.

12 November

Sermon Topic: Liberated from Shame


Speaker: Pastor Royston Smith


Summary: One of the most gut-wrenching scenes in scripture exposes us to the callous attitude of some religious followers. Yet, from the brink of the death chambers Jesus redeemed and restored a scorned woman. Join us as we explore this gripping moment when an adulterous woman had an intimate moment with Jesus.

19 November

Sermon Topic: A Night Visitor


Speaker: O’Neil Henry


Summary: The night visit of a famous rabbi opened a deep conversation with Jesus. At the end of this intimate moment Nicodemus became a follower of Jesus. Listen and be blessed as we hear those words from Jesus, ‘you must be born again.’
