Prepared to Serve

Sermons on 1 Corinthians

27 December 2020

This Sunday we held our Thanksgiving service for 2020 via Zoom. In our final service for this strangest of years, we look back at what God has done in our personal lives and through the church in 2020, despite what some might call some “slight problems” of the COVID nature.Chris leads us through a brief study of 1 Corinthians 10:16-17 and Karen leads the service by joining everything together.

A recording of a live Zoom communion service held on 15th November 2020. This week Andy and Chris lead us through communion. Chris looks at communion through the two topics we have studied in the previous weeks: science and suffering. Pete chooses the music for this week.

9 August 2020

Chris continues our new series on “What is Church?” as he looks at Paul’s description in 1 Corinthians of the church being like a body.
Karen leads the rest of the service with contributions from the two Sarahs: Hurley and Golding. Lynne picks this week’s music for us.

The Message of the Cross

In this series our aim is not to come up with clever theories about the cross but to reap its benefits, live its life and proclaim its gospel. Chris aims to inspire us to discover again the wonder and power of the cross of Christ. In the first talk he focusses on the revelation which the cross brings about who we are, who God is and how we can be reconciled.

Holy Spirit in Us

Chris seeks to apply what we have learnt during our recent series on the Holy Spirit to Burwell Baptist Church. He highlights two potential errors (Dispensationalism and Emotionalism) before outlining the orderly worship which the Apostle Paul commends. Chris also answers questions including “what is the point of speaking in tongues?”

Do Everything in Love

The Apostle Paul closes His first letter to Corinth with practical instructions and plans which echo his priorities throughout the letter. These include a desire to unity factions within the church, make clear the gospel and show how to apply it to practical situations. Chris explores what this can teach us about apply the gospel to our planning and priorities.
