Sermons on Pentecost

Pentecost: Liberation Day

Join us this week as we celebrated Pentecost together! Chris speaks on the circumstances surrounding the revelation of the Holy Spirit to the disciples in Jerusalem and its happening at a significant point in the Jewish calendar, how God pre-prepared for that moment by decreeing the festivals to be celebrated thousands of years beforehand. The people in Jerusalem heard God speaking through the disciples gathered there. That same Spirit enables us to hear from God too. What have you heard recently?

As Susan was unwell, Chris also leads the rest of the service with a reflection on how the Spirit cannot be contained and is like a breath and fire. Lynne and Dave lead our sung worship.

Pentecost: The Church in Unity

For our Pentecost service this year Simon Bailey reminds us that although churches around the world may have different traditions or ways to worship we are all called as Christians to profess Jesus’ name through the Holy Spirit. There is more that unites us than separates us.

James leads the rest of the service whilst Pete and Nick lead our sung worship.

Pentecost 2021

This week we held our first in-person live service since March 2020. This was held outside due to current COVID restrictions on congregational singing indoors, and therefore the sound quality of this recorded sermon isn’t fantastic. But we hope that you can still get a flavour of what God is saying to us as a church.

COVID-19 and the restrictions that came along with it have changed our lives over the last year whether we like it or not. Chris speaks about the changes that the disciples experienced in their lives since meeting Jesus and applies their thought processes to our constantly changing lives today.

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.
