Outward Conformity, But Something’s Missing (22 min)

The Book of the Generation of Jesus Christ (58 min)

It Was Dark, and Jesus Had Not Come to Them (39 min)

Phil Coulson speaks on half a verse in John’s gospel (John 6:17b) – “It was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them”. Why does the Lord allow us to go through dark times? Why, when we can’t see the right way – when we feel lost – does He sometimes leave us alone and not come to us? Why do some believers who don’t seem very keen in spiritual matters seem to fare all right, while others who…

What is “the World”? (48 min)

A helpful, practical and challenging word of ministry. Readings: John 17:4-5, Eph 2:1-2, Rev 12:7-9. (Message preached…

Sanctification and Social Media (44 min)

Phil Coulson preaches from Gal 1:5 on the purpose of Christ giving Himself for us – “to deliver us from this present evil age”. In other words, we were saved primarily to be set apart to “Himself” from the world and its ways. God’s will for us is sanctification/holiness – “Be ye holy, for I am holy”. Mr Coulson then applies this principle to the issue of screen time, social media and the online distractions and addictions of the digital…

Serving God in a Busy, Demanding World (36 min)

Phil Coulson preaches on serving the Lord in a busy world where our heavy life commitments often leave us with little time for the things of the Lord.

Reading: Mark 1:16-20 (Message preached 17th April 2006)
