 ... services and sermons recorded at Christ Church

This page includes some of the sermons/addresses (and some complete services too!) which were recorded at Christ Church. The recordings are made using a single camera and are made LIVE in the church, so some background and congregational noise IS often audible from time to time - even occasional pigeons and sirens, which can be quite noisy!! - so your volume controls may need to be adjusted. Because some of the Eucharist takes place in the Sanctuary against the background of the magnificent Sanctuary Window, the quality of the lighting in the recordings can sometimes be difficult to manage - especially on very bright mornings when the for the morning sun streams into the Sanctuary.... but the recording difficulty is a small price to pay for the beauty of the Sanctuary Window as a backdrop to our services.

The recordings of full Eucharist Services begin with the opening Prayers, and continue through the usual service including the appointed Readings, the Psalm (if used, and usually spoken), the Gospel, the Sermon, the Intercessions, and the Blessing and Dismissal that concludes the service. Recordinjgs of part Services usually include the Readings, then Gospel and the sermon presented by the Celebrant for the particular Service.

The addresses and services are primarily in video format - though some sermons are audio only - just click on any you would like to watch or hear again. The most recent recordings are at the TOP of the listing below; scroll down the page to find the date or service you are looking for. Some earlier sermons are available to watch here.
