The Cross, the Temple and the Gospel – Sinclair Ferguson, Andy Robertson and John Owen

Last Sunday was apparently quite a special one in St Peters – if you listen to the two services you will hear why – Sinclair’s sermon on the Cross is stunning, as is Andrew’s on Ezekiel.  What struck me about both is that not only were they deeply biblical and faithful to the text, they were passionate and full of pathos and emotion.  This is … Continue reading The Cross, the Temple and the Gospel – Sinclair Ferguson, Andy Robertson and John Owen

The Best Online (St Peters) Worship Service Yet?

We are really enjoying being in Australia….the thing that we miss the most are family – both physical and spiritual….most days I walk to Lane Cove library, where I am currently doing most of my writing.  As you can see it is a beautiful walk.  This week as I was walking down in beautiful sunshine I listened to this service from St Peters on the … Continue reading The Best Online (St Peters) Worship Service Yet?

Praise, Reading, Prayer and Preaching (Romans and Gospel of John) from St Peters – 21st January

After our experiment last year recording the whole service we have decided to do that permanently.  Everything is recorded except the pastoral prayer and the missions prayer (for reasons of confidentiality).   I prefer to listen to the whole service – the recording is excellent and its great to join in the praise (led by John Cooper).   If you wish to get the sermons only you … Continue reading Praise, Reading, Prayer and Preaching (Romans and Gospel of John) from St Peters – 21st January

John 11:1-6 – Jesus Cuncator; O the Deep, Deep, Love of Jesus

For some reason the morning sermon did not record but the evening one from Sinclair was absolutely stunning….it was on John 11: 1-16 and entitled  ‘Jesus Cunctator’ (if you want to know what it means listen below! ) In the morning I preached on Romans 5:1-5 “Peace, Hope, Glory and Love”.  Here is one of the quotes from it… “And by the word stand, he … Continue reading John 11:1-6 – Jesus Cuncator; O the Deep, Deep, Love of Jesus

The Blind See, The Lords People are Fed, the King Returns – Sermons and Praise from St Peters from 24th Sept

The Bible is a rich feast for the Lord’s people – but normally Christians don’t eat alone – we eat together with a meal prepared by a trained chef – at least that is one way to look at preaching.  Last Sunday we feasted in God’s house.  Sinclair’s exposition of the story of the healing of the man born blind (John 9) contrasted the love … Continue reading The Blind See, The Lords People are Fed, the King Returns – Sermons and Praise from St Peters from 24th Sept

John 8 – The Light of the World, Psalm 121, O For a Closer Walk with God…

Last Sunday I was not able to go to St Peters.  I was thankful to be at home after surgery but I missed my spiritual home!  Thats why the internet is such a gift – I have been able to listen to the sermon and also to share in some of the praise.  Not the same as being there – but a good taste anyway! … Continue reading John 8 – The Light of the World, Psalm 121, O For a Closer Walk with God…

John 9 – How can I Believe in a God of Love who Would send my Loved Ones to Hell? – Sermons from St Petes and ‘Behold our God’…

Last Sunday morning Sinclair preached on John 9:1-41 – A Day of Sightseeing     Then I preached on “How can I believe in a God of Love who would send my loved ones to Hell?’  It wasn’t easy but the Lord enabled as we looked especially at what Jesus says in Luke 16:19-31     We had a good day…. This quote from the … Continue reading John 9 – How can I Believe in a God of Love who Would send my Loved Ones to Hell? – Sermons from St Petes and ‘Behold our God’…

The Woman at the Well, Ezra- Sermons from St Peters and a Prayer

Last Sundays’ sermons. Firstly from Sinclair on the Woman at the Well  (John 4:1-42) And then from Craig on Ezra 1:5-2:7 I also thought I would share with you something I read in The Valley of Vision this morning. “Everlasting Creator – Father, I have destroyed myself, my nature is defiled, the powers of my soul are degraded; I am vile, miserable, strengthless, but my hope is … Continue reading The Woman at the Well, Ezra- Sermons from St Peters and a Prayer
