Jon Osmond shared an important message this Sunday on FreeChurch’s vision. He spoke on our vision of seeing prodigals come home and Christ followers formed in a community empowered for the flourishing of our city. Jon spoke on our desire to grow up leaders, developing our community groups that are rooted in our neighbourhoods, living together for a thriving sustainable urban life, developing partnerships throughout our city, and seeing God’s restorative work in our city.

Christ is Risen, Indeed!

This Sunday our very own Tim Blank taught on 1 Corinthians 15:3-8 and the historical reasons for believing that the resurrection actually happened as reported in the New Testament.

We’ll also heard from The Redwood – an organization that our West End Community Group has connected with.

If you’re here for the long weekend, we hope you can join us!

“For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me.”

1 Corinthians 15:3-8

The Restorative Work of Forgiveness

New sermon is online! On May 14, Jon Osmond offered us a message on the restorative power of forgiveness. The power of forgiveness is that it is not about us acting alone. Forgiveness an example of God’s offer to partner with us as we  participate in His restoration.

“Forgiveness is not so much about what I do as one lone individual, it is something that God is doing.”


“On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” After he said this, he showed them his hands and side.The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord. Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyoneʼs sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.” – John 20:19-23

Eastertide – A City Called Beautiful

Jon Osmond focused this week’s Eastertide message on Acts 3:1-10 in his sermon, “A City Called Beautiful”. He asked us to examine how  we are called to be relationally engaged in our communities as we participate in God’s restorative work in our city.


Peter Heals a Lame Beggar

3 One day Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time of prayer—at three in the afternoon. Now a man who was lame from birth was being carried to the temple gate called Beautiful, where he was put every day to beg from those going into the temple courts. When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money. Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, “Look at us!” So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them.

Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man’s feet and ankles became strong. He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God. When all the people saw him walking and praising God, 10 they recognized him as the same man who used to sit begging at the temple gate called Beautiful, and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.
