Sermons from 2020
A very different Carols by Candlelight this year. We met over Zoom on the day following the announcement of increased restrictions so it was good to be reminded of the timeless truth about Jesus’ birth through carols, readings and Chris’ talk. The audio recording of the talk is attached. The readings and carols can be watched again:

On the second Sunday in Advent, Chris spoke from Isaiah 40, John 14 and Luke 1 about how Jesus was the promised way through the spiritual wasteland, and through his birth became the fulfilled way to the father.
On the first Sunday in Advent, Louise spoke to us about how perfect love drives out fear, picking up on Jesus’ command at the start of his team talk in John 14: “Do not let your hearts be troubled.”
