Hot Topic: What on earth should we do with Isaiah?

Hosted by SMBC

February 14
Sydney, NSW

It’s long, majestic, vivid, complex, and a favourite for many New Testament writers to quote. Yet we often find Isaiah difficult to understand. How can we make the best use of Isaiah?

He will unwrap the book’s big themes of danger, trust, transformation, judgement, and surprising grace – and its riches, importance and significance for us as God’s people.

Life can be wearisome. What is sleep, and what is rest, according to the Bible? Mark Stephens, who lectures in Biblical and Integrative Studies at Excelsia College, will unpack Scripture’s foundational theological ideas about rest in the present, in the future, and some redemptive implications of the question. He will help equip us to critique biblically our own assumptions and practices as incessantly busy (and perhaps rest-deprived) Christians in a restless culture.

Is our quest for travel harmful or helpful for Christian life? Does the Bible guide us about whether Christians should travel?

Hot Topic: Is the Pope catholic?

Hosted by SMBC

March 21
Sydney, NSW

In many ways, Pope Francis appears as a reformer: a breath of fresh air in the Roman Catholic Church. He engages intentionally with the world and its leaders. He has said Protestants and Catholics “agree on the doctrine of justification” and that on this point, Martin Luther “did not err.” Is the Reformation having an impact on the Catholic Church? Rachel Ciano, an SMBC church history lecturer, will consider this possibility.

The Edge - Leadership that Sticks

Hosted by City Bible Forum

March 22
Sydney, NSW

What does leadership in the workplace look like today? What does ‘leading on the edge' even mean?

The way we work has changed dramatically in the past decade. More people are employed in non-traditional industries, working flexible hours and using technology to work anywhere. Expectations of leaders have become a moving target and it is hard to know how to lead and who to follow in this new era.

Come along to The Edge to hear from two leaders who have had to learn how to adapt to this ever-changing environment.

Nexus

March 26
Sydney, NSW

It’s almost a truism in modern evangelical church life: the desire to get ‘every member’ motivated, equipped and involved in ministry and mission. At the 2018 Nexus conference, we’ll be digging into this subject theologically and practically, with speakers including Tony Payne, David Williams and Carl Matthei. 

Hot Topic: Are the Old Testament laws for Christians?

Hosted by SMBC

March 28
Sydney, NSW

If the Law was for the old covenant people of God, how are Christians to relate to it as we live by grace and the gospel? Jesus seemed to set the Law aside; yet he was also very positive about it. Is it still relevant, and are we required to keep the Ten Commandments? Or even the whole Old Testament law? We’re not saved by keeping it – but is it still important? We will explore these questions with Kit Barker, who teaches Old Testament at SMBC.

Hot Topic: Domestic violence: a biblical and pastoral perspective

Hosted by SMBC

April 4
Sydney, NSW

In Ephesians, Paul told married women to ‘submit’ to their husbands. Psychologists, counsellors and others criticise this, seeing it as an excuse for perpetrating domestic violence, and for victims to patiently endure that. Sandy Grant, who pastors in Wollongong, will explore this biblically and pastorally, suggesting appropriate ways for Christians and church leaders to think and behave, and to identify and help abuse victims.

EQUIP Ministry Wives

Hosted by EQUIP

Hosted by SMBC

When it comes to the gospel and conversion to Christ, how should a new believer in a religiously hostile culture live and worship? What does becoming all things to all people (1 Corinthians 9) look like for both missionaries and new believers in contexts like this? Contextualisation versus syncretism.

Hosted by SMBC

May 9

Most of us spend 95% of our waking hours outside church. We work to support ourselves and others; we study; we do chores around our homes; we care for parents, children and others.

Kara Martin mentors, lectures at Mary Andrews College, and wrote a recently shortlisted book, ‘Workship: How to Use Your Work to Worship God'.
