Sermon Audio: John 3: 1-21


Yesterday we listened in as Jesus spoke to a very religious man. Did Jesus commend Nicodemus for his religious works? No, in fact he speaks some truths for religious people, the first of which is 'You Must Be Born Again'.

Sermon Audio: John 1: 35-51


On Sunday, we heard John telling us about the first time he met Jesus and began to follow him. The three little words 'Come and See' are an invitation to the searcher and the sceptic, as we hear them and share them with others, inviting people to meet with the real Jesus.

Friday, 18 September 2015

Sermon Audio: John 1: 1-18


September brought the start of our new autumn series: We Have Seen His Glory - listening to the eyewitnesses who met with Jesus, as recorded in John's Gospel. In the prologue, the first eighteen verses, John begins by telling us just who Jesus is - the eternal Word made flesh. Listen in as we hear about Receiving the Word.
