This Blog contains all my sermons and Bible studies from the last 10 years at North Springfield Baptist Church in Chelmsford, UK.
There are around 800 sermons in over 80 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 year all these sermons have been recorded on video. You can watch them in the NSBC Facebook Group
