This Blog contains all my sermons and Bible studies from my 12 years from 2010 to 2023as minister of North Springfield Baptist Church in Chelmsford, UK. (I am now enjoying retirement.)

There are more than 800 sermons in over 90 separate series and more than a hundred Bible Study outlines in a dozen series. All the series are listed in the left sidebar and the most recent sermons and studies are in the list to the right. You can use the search box to find sermons and studies referring to any Bible books, characters or topics.

For the last two years all these sermons have been recorded on video. You can watch them in the NSBC Facebook Group

Catch up with the rest of the news of the church in the group

More recently some of the videos have also been posted in the YouTube Channel for
