27th January Service

In just 14 minutes Bob - with his usual interesting teaching and grasp of the correct translation of the Bible's words - gives us such clear gospel truth on how we as many united (and non-prideful) parts - should be the body of Christ - with Him and Him only as the head of the body - for all authority in heaven and on earth is given to Jesus.

20th January Service

Our Church Anniversary (95 years in current building!). 

Ann, our longest serving member gave us (in 17 mins) a great history lesson and a lovely final conclusion relating to Psalm 121. 

(Sorry about some of sound quality - after Ann sent the recorder flying!)

13th January Service

This was a family 'party' event with lively music and story telling for the kids - so sorry no sermon as such!

6th January Service

Following on from - and directly linked to - a great little '3 GIFTS' drama (with some excellent costumes) - Brian gave us a very brief (5 minute) but very interesting message relating to Matthew 2 verses 1 to 12. 

Here's a Brief Content Guide for many of our of 2018 Sermons:

30th December Service

 Chris gives a short (12min) message considering the days after Christmas - with his usual humour and stories he makes us think about the need to Ponder, Praise and Proclaim the Good News.

25th December Service

After all the great Christmas orientated events we've had recently - where we had no recordings as such - it was lovely to have this little 5 minute Angel Story on Christmas Day morning. Thanks Jenny.

9th December Service

A must listen to message (23mins) from Dave with his usual great humour -alongside some sorrows he has been having to deal with for the sake of others. Through God's word he delivers assurance, encouragement, and wisdom to help us all be more Christ Like in our lives - linking to God given faith - in the knowledge of the Holy Spirit within us and a belief in the miracles of answered prayers.  

2nd December Service

Debbie in 22 minutes explains the background and development of Advent and relates the reading (Luke 2 vs 25-38) to today. Whilst we wait for Jesus to return - are we obedient in praise and reminding ourselves of God's promises to us as individuals - making a note of those as we read our Bibles? Are we preparing ourselves in faith - to be ready - in patience & confidence through the Holy Spirit? Are we spending time together encouraging one another in God's word and each of us contributing our bit? 

25th November Service

Paul gave a gentle encouraging message in 23 minutes with links to Colossians 3 vs 23-24 and Acts 20 vs 24. He warmly spoke about his recent time in Africa and commended the Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child Shoebox work - and the importance of fulfilling the Mission that God gives each one of us.  

29th October Service

On a very difficult day for Brian - he managed to give us a brief (6min) heart felt message relating to Exodus 15 vs 22 to 27 - warning us how the devil likes nothing better than to worm his way into times of trouble. Just keep your eyes on the cross when difficult times come!

21st October Service

Dave gives a great 21 minute message (delving further into Exodus 15) that he entitled 'How to sing in desert situations'. God gave him some amazing words that spoke directly to our current situation. Lovely to hear mention of the Rivers of Babylon with brother Tony not being able to be with us.

14th October Service

Great 11 min Message given by Chris Nuttall at a lovely Harvest Service where the donated products go to the Lighthouse Project in Rotherham. Some very lively harvest songs set to various backings - even a Samba!

7th October Service

Wonderful 15 min sermon from Bob linking Exodus 12 (with reference to Colin J Humphries) to Mark 14 and Revelation. May we always feed on the Lamb of God.

23rd September Service

Brian gives us one of his punchy & educational 5 minute messages - relating to Pharaoh and the plague of frogs but quickly turning it into a reminder of what our mission should be - going out to bring people to Jesus.

16th September Service

In 9 minutes at this baby Dedication - Chris gives a humorous message to a swelled congregation - with several babies present (sorry for some strange sound quality!). Lovely service with few tears!

9th September Service

Gordon follows on from Margaret to expand on some of her words - particularly through the Book of Habakkuk. Are you hurting and waiting on God - perhaps wondering and even getting mad at God - when he doesn't do what you expect he should do - and you know He can do!? You may be finding it difficult as you wait to hear from God or for an answer you've had to come to pass? Then, have a listen to this 23 minute message.

2nd September Service

Margaret Dimberline - gives a great 16 minute message on Pharaoh (A Man in Rebellion) - relating the Exodus 5 vs 1 -15 text not only to the Hebrews and Moses/Aaron - but also directly to ourselves and the way Satan can turn us in to rebels. Speaking from the heart about her own situation and giving our little church encouragement - especially when there are times of wondering and waiting!

26th August Service

David Harvey, gives us a 23 minutes message (I've called 'Jesus the Healer') of really sound Biblical teaching - based partly on Mark 2 verses 1 to 12 with important small detours through Mark - explaining why Jesus first told the paralytic man (who'd been lowered into the crowded room from the roof) that his sins were forgiven - and then subsequently healed the man allowing him to walk home - no longer a helpless man. David then related the message so well to our own lives.

12th August Service

Dave Goddard - preaching with us for the first time - relaxed the congregation with great humour whilst giving a wonderful 20 minute message - partly based on Daniel and Revelation 21 - touching on the Rival and the Real Kingdoms. 

29th July Service

Clearly the Holy Spirit was upon Brian - as he gave us a 5 minute message from his heart - with humour, warmth and urgency - to stay firm in our faith - encouraging us to pass the test of trials from God - by Living in the Light of our Returning King.

22nd July Service

Second important message in the series of Living in the Light of a Returning King (by Following Him) - given by Gordon - in 15 mins - but recording goes on to include a Brief Church Meeting!

15th July Service

Good to listen to Debbie's 20 minute opening message on the subject of Living in the Light of a Returning King (through Justification).


17th June Service

In 23 minutes Chris takes us through the work of the Holy Spirit in the hearts and minds of sinners - bringing them to faith in Christ, providing us with the guidance we need to bring glory to God - as we promote Christ to others.

10th June Service

Gordon give an interesting & challenging 23 minute message to inspire us to: trust in God the Trinity; lead an obedient holy life: & to be 'fired up' by the Holy Spirit to urgently tell out the Good News. 

Pleased to say the quality of the sound is now good again!

3rd June Service

Firstly - sorry for the quality of the sound this week! 

David as usual gave us a great Biblically sound message - in just 15 mins - on being transformed to be more like Christ. Shedding all the bad things and putting on all the good things of Jesus Christ. God is so Good!

20th May Service

A must listen to Pentecost Message (22 minutes) from Darren Shaw of the Salvation Army - open those doors closed by fear and let the Holy Spirit in - to put His stamp upon your life. He's the best and ultimate gift! Ask, seek and knock! If you don't have the Holy Spirit in your life then you do not truly belong to Jesus Christ.

4th March Service

Debbie Pearson (in 18 minutes) told us about why we needed to know the Son of God more and how we needed to become more like Jesus. Becoming humble and bearing with one another in love - moves a church towards (and hold on to) unity. Knowing Jesus and more about the Bible will help us to discern false teaching to guard us against disunity. We learnt a new word 'paltering' - cunningly lying through using an element of truth - we need to be alert to this - testing things in the spirit. We need to step up and use our God given gifts and talents - encouraging each other in this service for the Lord. All this we heard from Debbie was an encouragement to lead us in unity towards better fulfilling the mission Jesus has given us. 

25th February Service

In just 14 minutes Bob Lunt gave us a wonderfully clear and interesting message on how we should become 'A United Community' - no more selfish pride - instead follow the humble example  of Jesus - the Servant King. A sermon largely based on Philippians 2 Verses 1 to 11 - 14 - this is an absolute must listen to item! 

18th February Service

Gordon Hawley (in 21 minutes) gives us an interesting insight of what a Missional Community should look like - partly using the unlikely reading of 1 Corinthians 1 that he had been given via the preaching plan. The conviction and urgency for us, as united and Holy Spirit empowered 'ordinary' people, of telling out the Good News was emphasised - also drawing on the need to tell out the bad news: the dangers of the wrath of God and the deserved horrors of Hell!

11th February Service

A detailed 27 minutes from Chris Nuttall for all Christians (and churches who become overly denominational) - there's nothing we can do in our own strength to make ourselves acceptable to God. Our 'justification' is through the righteousness of Jesus and the love He showed for us at the cross.  

4th February Service

Debbie Pearson explained (in 20 minutes) a blueprint of how to operate as a dedicated church community - being at one in the power of Jesus - with the power of the Holy Spirit to enable us - to be a community in unity - leading to unity within the community!

28th January Service

Brian Wilks gave us a brief but very interesting and quietly powerful sermon initially based on Exodus 34 vs 1 to 9 relating to the various Covenants in the Bible finishing with the final Covenant of the blood of Jesus.

21st January Service

Margaret Dimberline - 13 minutes - John 1 vs 1 to 8 - lovely encouragement for all Christians and especially our church on its Anniversary - to step out in faith - have no fear the Lord is with us until the end of the - His light conquers all darkness!

14th January Service

In 12 min Chris Nuttall follows on from Gordon Hawley's creation message of last week - picking up on Paradise Lost or The Fall (Genesis 3) - the introduction of sin into the world. Then we were pointed to the way of Paradise regained.  

7th January Service

In 21 minutes - Gordon Hawley gets into the miracle of creation (mainly from Genesis 1 & 2) - whilst leading up to a communion celebration. This is an interesting message from a former materials scientist - who prays he avoided any false teaching.


And here's an example of another visiting preacher who regularly come to us:
