Sermons

At St Paul we follow the historic lectionary. It is a one year lectionary, which means that we cover the whole collection of readings in one year. The one year lectionary covers most, if not all, of the major biblical teachings/doctrines over the course of a year. At St Paul, most of the time the focus is on the Gospel lesson for the day, but there are times when the Epistle or Old Testament lessons will be the focus for the week, depending on the needs of the congregation.
