Sermons on 1 Thessalonians

Advent: How Can We Endure?

Continuing our Advent series, this week Chris looks at 1 Thessalonians chapter 3, asking the question “how can we endure?”. As we have been reading, the Thessalonians at the time of writing were suffering from persecution yet their faith in Jesus had not faltered. How can we follow their example when experiencing troubled periods in our own lives?

Whoever We Are

Our All-Age series on Frontline Sundays continues for December, with Chris looking at how we can show the love of God whoever we are. He examines the Lord’s Prayer in detail, explaining how each of the lines explains how we can worship God in our situation.

Advent: Who Will Rescue Us?

As we enter into advent, this year we are looking at the book of 1 Thessalonians. Advent is a time of reflection, of waiting on God, remembering the wait for Jesus’ birth and anticipating his return. Chris this week asks the question who will rescue us?

Prayer

Simon Bailey preaches on 1 Thessalonians Chapter 1, reminding us that faithful prayer bears fruit and that God is already at work preparing hearts to respond to Him.

“I will pour water on those who are thirsty and flood the dry ground.”
