  • Jesus And John The Baptiser Series

    Contributed by Gordon Curley on Nov 29, 2010

    Are you John the Baptiser? (PowerPoint slides to accompany this talk are available on request - email:

    Reading: Matthew chapter 16 verse 13-18: “When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, Who do people say the Son of Man is? 14 They replied, Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets. 15 But what about more

  • Heralding The Fullness

    Contributed by Christopher Holdsworth on Nov 25, 2018
    based on 3 ratings

    The ripeness of the times for the coming of Jesus into our hearts.

    HERALDING THE FULLNESS Luke 3:1-6 The Apostle Paul speaks of a 'fullness of time’ (Galatians 4:4). Well, if ever there was a time that was ripe for revival, perhaps it is now? ‘So much drunkenness, cursing and swearing (even from the mouths of little children),’ wrote John Wesley in more

  • Advent: Repentance And Preparation

    Contributed by Warner Pidgeon on Dec 5, 2009
    based on 1 rating

    John the baptiser called for believers to repent. This sermon asks what we need to repent of, reminds us we need to turn back to God, and calls for preparation for what God has for us this next year.

    If you were going to describe the time 20 years ago in 1989 when the Churches of the town worked together to plan and produce Festival 89 I wonder what you would say. More specifically, if you were going to date the time and the place and the event without naming the date I wonder what you would more

  • Baptism Divides God's Church But Should Unite It

    Contributed by David Mcnally on Feb 8, 2014

    John the Baptiser preached repentance and Jesus who had no sin was baptised by John, and the first Christians were baptised. The church should be united with regard to this Sacrament or Ordinance but is sadly divided over belief and practice.

    Text: Luke 3: 21 and 22 ‘After all the people had been baptised, Jesus also was baptised and a voice came down from heaven, more

  • I Thirst

    Contributed by Ken Henson on Apr 17, 2014

    Water is a thematic element in the Gospel of John. Jesus baptised in it, turned it to wine, used it as a metaphor of life, used it to heal, walked on it, and washed His disciples feet with water. Yet on the cross He needed water, and He got none.

    I Thirst In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. The first order of creation, even before God proclaimed, “let there be light”, there more

  • Repent For The Forgiveness Of Sins

    A fresh call to repentance for the forgiveness of sins.

    They were waiting for their long-expected Messiah. In April 2011 Prince Charles became the longest serving heir apparent in British history, having waited 59 years, 2 months and 14 days.

  • The Big Bang Of Good News

    Contributed by Martin Ellgar on Nov 1, 2014

    A perspective on Mark 1: 1-8 When you find yourself again having a wilderness experience, listen to the voice of the one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.”

    Mark 1: 1-8 The Big Bang Of Good News One motor enthusiast has short-listed four cars in a recent AA magazine and one of those will be voted the car of the 20th century.

  • A Tale Of The Unexpected !

    Contributed by Warner Pidgeon on Feb 10, 2006
    based on 5 ratings

    John was shocked when the sinless Jesus asked to be baptised. Jesus identifies with us in his baptism. We identify with him when we are baptised and we too can receive God’s Spirit! Truly this is a tale of the unexpected.

    The Baptism of Jesus must surely qualify as a ‘Tale of the Unexpected’! Have you ever been somewhere or seen something which was the exact opposite of what you were expecting? Have you ever been waiting expectantly for an event, only for the event itself to come as a total surprise or even a big more

  • Careful Promises

    Contributed by Gaither Bailey on Jul 9, 2009
    based on 5 ratings

    St. Thomas Acquinas said, "All of society is based on promises and trust." We must therefore be careful about the promises we make and our intentions to keep them.

    Mark 6: 14 – 29 / Be Careful What You Promise Intro: An Irishman had been drinking all night at a pub. The bartender announced the pub was closing so the Irishman stood up to leave and fell flat on his face. He tried again to stand with the same result; so, he decided to crawl outside and get more

  • The Best Is Yet To Come!

    Contributed by Warner Pidgeon on Jan 22, 2012
    based on 4 ratings

    There are similarities between the start of John's gospel and Genesis, culminating with water into wine on the 7th day (see full text for explanation). I believe this miraculous sign reveals the glory of Jesus and says the best is yet to come.

    Christ Church - the best is yet to come! John’s gospel focuses upon signs that pointed to, and revealed the identity and glory of Jesus (2:11); and towards the end of his gospel John states why he wrote his book: ‘Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of his more

  • Part 5 - Matthew 11:13-14 - In A Previous Life I Was A Dolphin? Series

    Contributed by Ross Cochrane on Jun 11, 2010
    based on 14 ratings

    How can John the Baptist be Elijah the prophet? Reincarnation? Malachi 4:5 (NLT) gives a prophecy about Elijah. It says "Look, I am sending you the prophet Elijah before the great and dreadful day of the Lord arrives."

    Part 5 - Matthew 11:13-14 - IN A PREVIOUS LIFE I WAS A DOLPHIN? I asked some friends what they thought about REINCARNATION last night and got some funny responses - should have known. One of them said "once, in a previous life, I was a dolphin... lol jk." Another one said "It’s weird to think more
