Sermons at St. Andrew's Scots Kirk


Sunday Service: 28th June 2020

Let us, with confidence approach God in prayer.
Let us pray,

God of Abraham, Isaac and Jesus,

You love to offer invitations.

We gather today because of
your invitation to Abraham,
inviting him to step away from the known
through trusting in your promise
of a new family, who would be
willing to share in the care of Your creation.

26th April 2020 Sermon At St Andrews Scots Kirk

Sunday Service: 26th April 2020

I wonder if any of you have ever mistaken one person for another, it can be

easily done at night, in the rain especially in a crowded place.

People can dress in the same colours or style as someone you know and if it is dark or you have been crying you may not see the person as you normally would. Usually we recognise a person when we see their face in the light or we hear their voice.

Found Sheep

Sermon: 22nd March 2020

Three passages today but all leading towards one single word. It emerges from the biblical description of leadership.

So what is this keyword then?

We will arrive at that destination, but first, we need to set out on a small journey of discovery. We begin with possibly the most famous words ever written. There are in equal measure – a song, a poem and a prayer. Part of the Hebrew bible but respected by many other religions and cultures.

Woman At Well

Sermon: 15th March 2020

We know about thirst in Colombo in March, don’t we?

It is hot by 9.00am and piping hot by noon.

The heat makes our lips parched, our throats dry, our body begins to sends signals from our skin and stomach and organs requesting fluid, the messages become more urgent hour by hour until thirst become a pain, not a request rather a demand and after a remarkably short time just one day our bodies begin to shut down. Yes we certainly need water.
