Sermons from Church Year 2016-17

The sermons delivered at St James and All Saints churches in the current church year 2016-2017, of which we have a record, are stored here, most recent first. (For links to other years see the index to years page.) 2016-17 is a Year A in the three year cycle of the Lectionary.

If the speaker's script is available, there will be a link (to a web page) in the centre column. Where there is a recording, there will be a 'control' (to play the mp3 file) in the third column. Any other material available, such as a PDF file of slides or script, will also be in the right-hand column.
