Sermons on Matthew

Baptists Together

This week we are joining with many of our fellow Baptist churches in the UK for Sunday worship live streamed from the Baptist Assembly. The service can be watched live from 10:30am on 16th May 2021 or caught up with at any time later via the embedded YouTube video. An audio recording of just the reading and sermon is also available.

Just Do It!

Chris leads us through a final study of the Sermon on the Mount as our series comes to its end, this time looking at Jesus’ warnings about false prophets and the wise and foolish builders.
James leads us through the rest of the service as Sally brings us prayers, Nikki does the reading and Mike chooses the songs to end the service.

The Golden Rule

Chris leads us through our next study of the Sermon on the Mount, looking at how we are reminded not to judge others and explains a little about asking, seeking and knocking.

This service is available in both video and audio format.
Chris continues our look at the sermon on the mount, this time focussing on Jesus’ teaching about worry and what treasures we store up in Heaven and on earth.
Andy leads the rest of the service with contributions from Pete and Kath Robinson, plus newly recorded worship from Pete, Nick and Susan.

Playing at Religion

Chris looks at the passages around the Lord’s Prayer and examines Jesus’ teaching on giving, prayer and fasting.

This service is available in both video and audio format.
Whilst Chris takes a week off, Susan continues our look at the Sermon on the Mount. This week, we arrive at the model for Christian prayer, the Lord’s Prayer.

The Extra Mile

This service is available in both video and audio format.
This week Chris looks at the next part of the Sermon on the Mount, examining Jesus’ teaching on love for your enemies. Something which – in light of recent events in the US – looks more relevant now than it did even a week ago.

Maintaining Integrity

This service is available in both video and audio format.
The Spirit is given. He is given indeed! (don’t worry, that will make sense later).
We find ourselves at another significant time in the church calendar: Pentecost, the giving of the Holy Spirit and the birth of the church. And we are once again celebrating in isolation from each other, separate in body but not in unity or purpose.
Chris leads us through the next section in the Sermon on the Mount, looking at Matthew 5:27-37. Meanwhile, Susan leads the rest of the sevice, Daniel brings us the reading, Andy leads prayers and Mike has chosen the music for us today.

Salt and Light

This service is available in both video and audio format.
Chris is taking a week off preaching this week, and so Andrew Dalwood picks up the series on the Sermon on the Mount, looking at being salt and light in our current situation.
Anthony leads us through the rest of the service, with contributions from Chris (we couldn’t keep him away…) and Andy. Pete R and Ant have both chosen music to help us worship this week.
