Sermons on John

Jesus alongside us

On Sunday 22nd September Andrew returned to our series on the Holy Spirit. He spoke from John chapter 14 about how Jesus promised to send us an advocate and comforter, the Holy Spirit. He spoke in particular on the phrase in verse 17 in which Jesus says to his disciples “… you know him (the Holy Spirit), because he lives with you now…” Andrew used…

Life giving water

On 21st July Keith King spoke about the picture which is often given in the Bible of the Holy Spirit as life-giving water. He spoke particularly from John chapter 7 when Jesus said “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink.”

Spiritual blessings

On 23rd June we welcomed back Keith King who spoke from John chapter 15. Keith spoke about the spiritual blessings which follow when we “abide in Jesus”. The gremlins stayed out of the machinery this week, so please listen as first of all Lesley reads this passage and then Keith speaks.

Mission update

On March 24th we were delighted to welcome back Simon and Ursula who were sent from this church to work in Ilford.

The vine life

On 22nd July Gill summarised our journey over the past few weeks and looked particularly at what it means for us individually. She encouraged us to live the “vine life” as described in John 15, and the recording starts with Gill reading verses 9 to 17.

Festival of Tabernacles

On Sunday 15th October Andrew picked up on our recent harvest theme, and spoke about the great Jewish Festival of Tabernacles. In particular he covered two of Jesus’ great sayings as recounted in John 7 and 8: “I am the Light of the World“; “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from…

Do you love me?

On October 2nd, Andrew moved on to cover the question that Jesus asks us through chapter 21 of the gospel of John: “Do you love me?” Unfortunately technical gremlins prevented the first part of this recording coming out properly, so here is a brief summary. The passage in John 21 deals with Jesus asking Peter three times, “do you love me?”. Each time Peter replies that he…
