Since 2013, I have been preaching occasional sermons for our church in Cambourne. Although this has not always been as regular as I would have liked (I had a longish break after our son was born), this is something I really love doing and at which I think I am improving all the time.
Below is the archive of recordings taken from our church's website, which is, unfortunately, slightly incomplete. Click the links to read the relevant bible passages.
I hope in future to find the time to tighten up the audio (remove some of the um-ing and er-ing, remove any sections which are too specific to be meaningful outside of the local congregation) and to provide transcripts. For now, however I hope you can enjoy them as they are.

the gospel according to st mark (complete reading)
This is not a sermon but the first in what I hope will become a series of services during which a book of the Bible is read in its entirety. I picked Mark's Gospel for the first one because it is a) a good story with a real sense of narrative drive throughout; and b) reasonably short. Even so - it took about an hour and a half to complete the reading, complete with props and live sound effects! Watch this space for more (hopefully)!

Palm Sunday Sermon (Also adapted into an All-Age Service)

The Bible All-Age service
This is not really a sermon but a recording of an all-age service which was a canter through the whole Bible in an hour and everything (all the songs, prayers, activities, etc) contributed to telling the story.
Through the service I refer to putting books on a bookcase - these were 66 mocked up books with the titles of each biblical book on the side which we added thoughout the service to a bookshelf.
