Sermons on Philippians
Pressing on in the Holy Spirit
In his final talk to our church Andrew speaks about the importance of the Holy Spirit in us and leading us.
The Honour of God’s Name
Jesus’ passion was for the honour of his Father’s Name. Andrew spoke about how this should shape us and our lives.
On the first Sunday of the year Andrew spoke about ambition and contrasted selfish ambition with Godly ambition. He reminded us of the three times that Paul mentions his ambitions in his letters: to share the Gospel with those who haven’t heard it; to live to please Jesus; to live a life that points others towards God. Andrew starts by reading from Philippians…
Don’t look back
On 3rd March we were delighted to welcome Dave Criddle from Gold Hill Church. Dave continued our study of the book of Philippians, speaking from chapter 3, verses 4 to 14. The theme was we shouldn’t define ourselves by what we have done, but rather by what Jesus has done for us.

On 3rd February Andrew started a new series which will take us through the next few months: “Becoming children of God”. The talk starts with a reading from Philippians 2 v5-16.

And secondly, but just as…
