The Sermon


Preaching the sermon has always had a central role in the life of and work of the church. Right from the time that Our Lord preached on the shores of the Sea of Galilee to the present day. While they may look and sound different through the ages and cultures, the sermon remain a powerful interface between the listener and the Word of God as written in the Bible.

The function of the preacher is to ‘unpack’ a piece of Scripture, explain it, put in context and relate it to the present day in a way that is relevant to the listener, with the assumption that 2 Timothy 3: 16 applies: “All Scripture is God – breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work” (NIV).
