   This page contains all the sermon recordings from 2001 which are available to date.  There are a few recordings still to be copied from the original audio tapes; if you're looking for a particular sermon and it isn't here, please try again later.  Sermons uploaded within the past three weeks are labelled as new.

   The table below also lists the Gospel reading for each service
(which is often, although not always, the subject of the sermon), and sometimes other relevant readings as well.
