About hannah
  • Education: my education is to A-level standard. My intention was university, until i felt God tell me otherwise! i now have a full time job, which has enabled me to live nearer church, living on the estate on which the church is based.
  • Experience: Experience? growing up in a loving family and church family has enabled me to use my gifts and to grow and mature as a person and as a Christian. i started preaching in my church about May or June of 2002. i took a break from preaching for a few years when i moved house and looked for work, but in the last year (2009) i’ve taken this back on!
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: i try to be honest. i want the passion i feel inside about my sermons to spill out through the computer! im still learning, and all i want is to do God’s will, and so i want what ive preached to be seen by others. not for my glory, but for his. i would like to hope i can hang on to this enthusiasm for a simple, effective message that challenges me and those listening - i want people to read what ive written and think ’i hadnt seen it like that before’. and i want my passion to be seen. let me kn
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: The most influencial sermon ive heard was by Richard Maybery. a South African minister, who came to do a conference that our church ran. his heart is for revival, and his words, his humility and his love for our church changed people’s hearts. fantastic.
  • Family: married to my husband of 2 years! Father and mother. dad is one of three elders at Agape. brother is studying at bible college in Bridgend, Wales, married to the lovely Rachel with two children my twin sister is in Manchester, England.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: they are grateful to God i think and very encouraging! i love my family, they are so supportive. The church family they have given me the chance to learn more about something that i’ve wanted to do (felt called to do) since i was 12. infact, my church has been so encouraging! i thank God for them.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: he's very objective! i get positive feedback to the content, then a breakdown on teh good and bad in my delivery!
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: let God write it! give a bit of yourself, by sharing something of your own self/trial/comforts etc, you can connect with people and speak to their hearts. - be real!
  • Books that have had an impact: not a big book reader (yet), but i just fnished reading ’Passion for Jesus’ by Mike Bickle, which is really cool. (chapter 4, and chapter 12ff. especially!) Mike Yaconnelli’s books, especially messy spirituality.
  • Hobbies: watching Cardiff City Football Club. music - if im not listening im singing, if im not singing, im humming to myself - or im doing two out of the three! playing my guitar.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: John 3 - ’he must become more and i must become less’ and Isaiah 6 verse 5 ’Woe to me for i am a man of unclean lips’. we need to be there! i cant think of 2 better verses to link together because when you realise Isaiah 6, you realise John 3. and that just brings such closeness with God. im getting passionate!
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: church is informal at Agapé, having to tell the elders off for messing around in the back row was a highlight seeing as one is my dad!
  • What I want on my tombstone: ’preach it sister!’

  • His Promise, His Patience, Our Purpose!

    Contributed on Mar 25, 2010
    based on 13 ratings

    After Jesus' death Peter and the other disciples went back to their fishing boats. Jesus reminds them of what they were called to do. let us not go backwards but rely on God and his promises - he has a purpose for each of us!

    The Bible amazes me how you can read a passage over and over and then one time you stumble over a new way of looking at it. In my case I was reading a book called ‘Searching for God knows What’ by Donald Miller when he linked these two passages: Matthew 4 vs. 18-20, which says: As more

  • John 14 - The Way, The Truth And The Life

    Contributed on Mar 26, 2003
    based on 169 ratings

    Jesus is the way, truth and life; This passage enables us to take heart in times when we are not sure of our way ahead. The Holy Spirit guides us and helps us to see Jesus, and call on His name. Jesus is our way to the Father and enables us to know God.

    Read John 14. In the last week of his life, Jesus had withdrawn from public ministry to spend time teaching his disciples and closest followers. He wanted to tell them the things that they needed to know to be prepared for what lay ahead –his death, the coming of the Holy Spirit, persecution, more

  • We Need You Now!

    Contributed on Jan 27, 2003
    based on 19 ratings

    We need Isaiah’s passion to ask God to come & make a difference now! Sin infects us & brings us down; but thank God for Jesus, who, through his death we can come to God forgiven.

    Isaiah cries out for God to come and visit the earth with such magnificence, such ferocity, that the mountains quake, and absolutely everything recognises exactly who God is. This is revival. He prays for God to come down and impact himself and those around him (God…who acts on behalf of those who more

  • Unity, Worship And Relying On God In Hard Times.

    Contributed on Dec 16, 2002
    based on 30 ratings

    in hard times bring Christians close to share with you and intercede for you. worship from beginning to end and always trust God’s way! speak the name of Jesus in the face of the enemy!!

    You know how you can get excited about something, so much that when you try to tell people all about it, it just comes out as over excitement?!?!?! Well, I’m excited about this chapter, it’s really cool. So I’ve tried my best to make this part a ’preach’ that’s will be understood, and that it will more

  • God's Presence - Seeking God For Himself.

    Contributed on Dec 13, 2002
    based on 38 ratings

    God wants us to spend time with him. But do we want to spend time with him? How can we? why should we? Do we come to God on his terms or ours?

    I once told a friend that all I wanted was to be happy in God’s presence. And I guess what I’m saying this morning is as a result of the reply I received. Because I was reminded, that I shouldn’t seek God for my own happiness, I should seek him for himself. Seeking God for himself. (But more
