Lately on Sunday mornings at QBC those of us who preach have been in ‘free kick’ mode, talking about whatever takes our fancy, which is nice for a while, but we’re feeling its time to move back to a little more of a focused approach to teaching. So – staring this Sunday we are going […]

Remember When We Used to Write Letters?…

Post Image

Its been a while hasn’t it?… I can’t remember the last time I actually received a personal letter. There have been plenty of emails the last 15 years, but letters are a different animal. Much of the New Testament is letters – letters to people, letters to churches, letters to the broader church in a region and over the […]

Becoming Like Jesus

I guess you could say its not rocket surgery, but the primary goal of a Christian community is to help people become more and more like Jesus. The question we will be exploring over the next few weeks at QBC is simply that – ‘how do we become like Jesus here at QBC?’ There’s no […]

Those Minor Prophets…

Post Image

For the last few weeks we have been digging into the minor prophets and visiting some places that often get left untouched in our normal ramblings through the Bible.

Looking Out

  For the last 5 months w ehave been reading the book of Acts and we have watched the church develop and the gospel spread across Asia. Of course the challenge for us is to grasp what the implications are for our own backyard. How do we point people to Jesus in this secular western […]

QBC as a Wordle…

‘Wordles’ are a way of capturing strength of feeling or ideas in an image. Yesterday during our gathering we asked everyone to write 3 words that they would immediately associate with QBC and one word they would hope to associate with QBC. To create a ‘wordle’ you then enter all of the responses into the program at […]
