Including, answering a question he’d been asked earlier that same week: “Does God have a bit of an ego problem? Why does he demand people worship him? Does he have some kind of deep-rooted insecurity, looking for praise and affirmation al ...…

In the last of our current series on ‘Big Questions,’ Steve Burnhope looks at why — if God loves us and wants the best for us — we still face hardships in life.

In the second of our latest Big Questions series, Steve Burnhope looks at the Bible. What’s it for? What’s the point of us having it? People sometimes say that it’s ‘God’s Instruction Manual’, but if so, which instructions? What makes a 2,000-plus year-old text relevant to today?
In the first of our latest series of ‘Big Questions’ about Christianity, faith and the Bible, Steve Burnhope looks at the Church.

We welcome guest speaker and comedian Andy Kind to Aylesbury Vineyard.Sunday 2 September 2018
It’s interesting that neither Jesus nor the Apostle Paul used the term ‘Christian’ (or, ‘Christianity’) — and it only appears in three New Testament verses. By far the most common word is not ‘believer’ or ‘follower’ — rather, it’s ‘disciple’. But that’s an unfamiliar word today — so what does it mean? Steve Burnhope suggests five characteristi ...…

Young Adults’ Pastor, Luke Martin, explores some thoughts on what God’s kind of leadership looks like — whether it’s at work, school, family, home, community, or church — encouraging us to lead with patience, love, transparency, confidence and a willingness to step up, step out and not be afraid of making mistakes, to learn from along the way.…
James Tweats shares about the times in his life where he's asked himself that same question (as many of us have) and looks at two Bible characters who also felt disqualified because of who they were and what they’d done: Moses, in the Old Testament, and Jesus’ disciple Peter, in the New.

Aylesbury Vineyard Church talks
On the second Sunday of his visit, Guest Speaker Luke Geraty explains why we need a ‘both-and’ (not ‘either-or’) understanding of what it means to be and do ‘church’. He encourages us not just to think about receiving, to be blessed ourselves on Sundays, but also to serve on teams to bless others, so that they too can be welcomed in and encount ...…
Luke Geraty, our Guest Speaker from Red Bluff Vineyard in California (http://www.redbluffvineyard.church/), explores how the Holy Spirit brings unity to a Church community and how, surprisingly, he works in and through ‘conflict’ in achieving his goals.
Georgia Gasson looks at the exciting challenge of loving and serving others in the way we live our lives. Jesus modelled that for us — “The Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve others and give his life as a ransom for many” (Matthew 20:28) — but it’s still such an alien way of thinking!
Lyn Burnhope looks at the meaning of Jesus having “learned obedience through the things that He suffered” (Hebrews 5:8), and what maturing in our own faith looks like, asking the questions ‘Who am I, who do I want to become, how am I going to get there?’
Steve Burnhope looks at the biblical accounts of the Israelites about to enter the Promised Land, and of David’s encounter with Goliath, and asks whether we too have a ‘giant’ in our life that’s standing in the way of all that God has for us — the abundance, the fruitfulness and the joy and peace of our own ‘promised land’ in him. Just as David ...…
Was Jesus religious? Do you have to become religious to be a follower of Jesus? And if so, what does he want the religion that bears his name to look like? In a postmodern world where increasing numbers of people would call themselves ‘spiritual, but not religious’, Steve Burnhope looks to answer those questions from Jesus’ encounter with the w ...…
Lyn Burnhope explains why we prioritize giving time to engage with God in intimate worship, seeking his presence. She talks about the ‘Why?’ and the ‘How?’ of worship and encourages us to become intentional and passionate worshippers, in mind, body and spirit.
The biggest question that Jesus asked his disciples was “Who do you say I am…?” He’s still asking each of us the same question today — so how will we go about answering it? Steve Burnhope shares some of his own journey of discovering Jesus and what it means to ‘become’ a Christian.
It’s relatively easy to picture in our minds God the Father, and Jesus the Son, but what does the Holy Spirit look like? He seems to be the mysterious one of the Trinity, especially since the Bible often speaks of him in impersonal terms like wind and breath. Steve Burnhope puts a biblical ‘face’ on the Holy Spirit and explains that actually, w ...…
Becky Stevens explores our spiritual hunger and thirst for God, looking at John’s Gospel.
Lyn Burnhope talks about the significance of prayer in our Christian lives — as ‘individual’ prayer, prayer ‘triplets’ and ‘corporate’ prayer (praying together) — in the lead up to our 24/7 Prayer Week which will be happening in the final week of Lent.
Steve Burnhope continues our series on the ‘Big Questions’ by explaining more about the contemporary worldview and how we can be most effective in introducing postmodern people to Jesus.
