Sermons and Letters

This collection of sermons and letters is posted here to give you an idea of the life of our church and especially of how the lives of the people who worship here are informed by the way in which we read and understand Scripture.


Nearly everything here was written by the vicar, Rev'd Robin Pye, although he is not the only preacher in our church.


Preaching in our church seeks to open up a particular passage of Scripture in a way which is most relevant to the people gathered to hear the preaching and so it makes sense to look up the passages the preacher is preaching on in order to read them in conjunction with the sermon.


Our preaching also seeks to open people’s hearts to the transformation the Holy Spirit is making in our lives.


Most of these sermons were preached at Eucharistic services where we remember the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross and this context has to be understood for many of the sermons printed here.


If you would like to respond to anything you have read here, please email the vicar on revrobinpye@gmail.com.
