Second Sunday of Easter, 16 April 2023

There was no sermon today because the Annual Parish Church Meeting took place immediately following the 9.30 Music Group Eucharist. Instead, we have a recording of the dramatised Gospel for today (4 minutes long), words by Sarah Lavery (from St John), narrated by Wendy Francis with the children as disciples, Fiona as Jesus and Simon as Thomas.

Third Sunday of Easter, 23 April 2023

This was the first of ‘Sharing Stories’ our congregational discussions which are planned to take place on the first Sunday of the month (except for 7 May, which is the Coronation Service). These will not be videoed, but transcripts will be published. An audio file (11 minutes long) is available below.

Fifth Sunday of Easter, 7 May 2023

On this Sunday, we celebrated the coronation of King Charles III with a special service. Fr Mark’s video sermon is available on the YouTube channel, or you can hear an audio recording of the service (65 minutes, including the organ voluntary at the end) below. 

Our recording starts with the Call to Worship, which was preceded by the hymn ‘Praise my soul, the King of Heaven’. We did not record our choir and congregation singing this hymn, but below is an audio recording of the hymn from the Church of England’s ‘A Church Near You’ resource hub.

Christmas Sermons at Steyning
