My passion is to preach Christ from all of Scripture. Should you wish to listen, I invite your reflection (and comments if you wish) as to whether the words you hear bear His character. Are they, like him, “full of grace and truth”? (John 1:14)
Note: If my sermons look to have been few and far between lately, it’s because they are. Since July 2012 I’ve been in a kind of unofficial sabbatical, with only a little formal ministry engagement. During that time I’ve joined my family in worshipping in our local Anglican parish. I’ve been pleased to occupy the pulpit there, as a guest from time to time.

An invitation to pause and marvel at the supremacy of Jesus, and so choose maturity rather than the complacency which is deadly to the spirit. [First of three sermons from Hebrews 6 & 7 as relieving minister.]
Only God’s plans go the distance, whatever the present state of things may be. He is ready to do much more than even the most passionate praying believers expect of Him. Let’s be expectant, praying believers.
The curious events of the first Christian Pentecost serve to showcase the Church as a living sign of the restoration of God’s broken world to that unity for which it was created, and which is now possible because of Christ.
A waiting church is a praying church, united in prayer, and persistent in prayer
Beginning a short Easter series from Acts. A ‘baby photo’ of the first church, a community characterised by awe …
Because of his resurrection, even though believers in Jesus will die physically, spiritually they will never die. Therefore you can turn to Jesus right now and he will open to you the door to real life that lasts forever.
Despite appearances of defeat and death, the Cross of Jesus testifies to his royal rule. As King, he has the power to deliver on his offer to restore to God’s paradise, anyone who turns to him.
