Sermons on 1 Corinthians

Communion July 2021

Chris and Lynne lead us through our Communion service for July 2021. We were unable to renew our covenant with each other and with God in our traditional covenant service in February and so this week we take that opportunity as we are on the brink of re-opening the church for full-scale Sunday services. On that note, Chris speaks about the relaxation of lockdown rules and how we as Christians can love our neighbours in the times that will be ahead where we will legally (but not necessarily morally) be able to take our lives “back to normal”.
Lynne has chosen the music for this week and also brings us an update on the inaugural Worship in the Woods held last weekend.

Thanksgiving Service 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.

What is Church? Body of Christ

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?”
