Sermons

Seeing Jesus

Chris brings us a message from John 20:19-31 on the importance of the resurrection for the disciples, of how important it should be for us, and how our belief in it should shape our behaviour.

Jesus as God’s promise

As we enter this time of Lent, Chris looks at the stories of Noah and Jesus, and talks about the promises of God, the life that they bring, and our response to them.

Called by name

Chris brings us the message from 1 Samuel 3: 1-10 and John 1: 43-51, on how God calls each one of us, and provides us with purpose.
