Sermons

Worship is at the center of life at Westminster and at the heart of worship is the reflecting on scripture – in word and in song.  Every sermon is designed to reflect on some aspect of God’s inclusive grace and on the Good News of the gospel.  Life, and how we live it, is the well from which we draw the water that nourishes and sustains.  Share in worship with us so that together we may be enriched by the Good News!
