Online Church Services, Prayers & Worship

Online sermons and reflections to download and share

Each week we produce a 10-minute online sermon for you to watch, use in your online church services, show on screen in church or share on social media. It is based on the Bible readings for that week.

The sermons are available to download on our Vimeo page from the Thursday before. You can also view the sermons on our YouTube channel.

This week’s online sermon:

Last Sunday we joined Chagford Church. Linden Bruce introduced the service and Mark Neave gave the address with others sharing in the readings and prayers. The readings were from 1 John 1:1 – 2:2, and John 20: 19-31 with themes from John’s gospel.
