More Information

We are delighted to make available this short course of ten minute sermons by ReSource speakers, focussing on the activity of God the Holy Spirit. 

The four talks in the series are all suitable for inclusion in online acts of worship and can be downloaded for that purpose from the ReSource YouTube channel, following the links below. The speakers have also made their preaching notes available on this page, along with study notes for home or Zoom groups or for personal use. A full set of the questions is also available on this page.

We are excited to offer such an inspirational set of messages, and we look forward to hearing how God uses them to serve the renewal and mission of the church, in the power of the Holy Spirit. Infact, do let us know if you are using the sermons in your online acts of worship, we would love to hear. And do send us words of testimony if God speaks to you through what you hear, or leads you into a deeper encounter with God the Holy Spirit.

In a second series of four ten minute addresses, The Holy Spirit in Person, the ReSource speakers look at the identity of the Holy Spirit as the third divine member of the Holy Trinity, and at how the Holy Spirit relates both to the Father and the Son and to the world God loves; all starting with a Pentecost message!

"During this week of Thy Kingdom Come, we are listening to your ten minute Holy Spirit talks. It feels like we are being fed rich spiritual food, and particularly tonight the Holy Spirit in Action, without boundaries. There is an atmosphere of expectancy. We have three more talks to go and we can’t wait. Thank you for your faithfulness in recording these talks, and for the Holy Spirit bringing them alive for us here at St Mary’s."

— Reverend Andrew Knowles, Vicar and Assistant Diocesan Director of Ordinands (ADDO)
