Here are some personal recommendations from regular users of the site for videos they think are particularly helpful or relevant.
Do you suffer from depression or know someone who does? Do you ever feel like no one really understands how it feels? or that you don't understand a loved one who is suffering? Well I suffer too and I used to feel a lot like that, that no one could possibly know or understand how truly terrible I felt. However, having taken part in the making of these videos I've come to realise that many, many people as well as myself do suffer with depression. If one of those people is you then why not watch these videos, it's really a summary of my wife's and my experiences during my ongoing battle with depression, one suffering and one trying to support. The things that helped us both ... and the things that didn't, general tips on how to support people suffering with this horrible illness and how my faith hit rock bottom and how by his grace GOD brought me back from the brink.
It may be that the specific circumstances that we talk about e.g faith and things within our Ecclesia (church) don't apply to you personally, but all of the general principles of social interaction and the feeling of depression will be instantly recognisable to those of you that suffer and I hope if nothing else you will take comfort from the fact that you are not alone and that the very fact that you are reading these paragraphs may even be the beginning of the journey to getting back on top of depression.

Dan and Gina made these videos with the Pakuranga Christadelphians in New Zealand, as part of their “Family Matters” series.
I imagine most of us have asked ourselves that question in the last few months with recent world events. Covid19 has made people question a lot of things. Why is this happening? What can I do about it? Who should we trust?
As Christadelphians we believe that God has a plan and purpose for this world and all the people in it. This presentation explores the wonder of our planet and our responsibility to it. It discusses the great and not so great things that mankind has achieved. And finally, it shares the hope for better times ahead when the Lord Jesus Christ returns to the Earth.
This talk was recorded in February 2020, just a month before lockdown began in the UK and yet coronavirus gets only a very small mention. At this point I think a lot of people still saw it as something that was happening in other countries, but it wouldn’t affect us. How wrong we were and how quickly things change! The Bible tells us that before the return of Jesus there will be wars, earthquakes, famine and disease and this paints a very accurate picture of the world we live in now.
If you are wondering what the world is coming to, then look to the Bible and hear its message. God’s Kingdom will soon be here, and he wants us all to be a part of it.
