Resources for Parishes

Sermons you can use and an online worship peer learning group

We now have sermons from our area bishops and archdeacons for parishes to slot into their online services. The sermons can be played, or downloaded, from the links below and the video description of each includes a link to the text of the sermon.

Please note that sermons are for parish/benefice use only and provided ‘as is’. The films must not be cut or edited in any way, however please be sure to trim the ‘in’ and ‘out’ points of each film so that the movements to switch on and off the camera are not broadcast.

Links (in red, below) will be posted here as soon as each sermon is ready (1-2 weeks ahead of the Sunday) and an announcement posted in our peer learning Facebook group. Details of how to join that below.

To view a sermon: click a red link below and a player will open. To download the file direct to your downloads folder, click the download link. Sermon text is provided where available as a separate link. If you get stuck, please email or post a message on the Facebook group. Thank you to those who have already responded and helped us to refine this page.

All those involved in providing or organising online services in the Diocese are welcome to join this group.
