St Mary's Mornington Web Page

   This archive is maintained by the parish of St John's Roslyn, as part of the Dunedin Hills Ministry arrangement involving both parishes.

   This page contains all the available sermon recordings from 2009.  If you're looking for a particular sermon and it isn't here, then it probably wasn't recorded.  (Recordings may also be excluded from the website because they are of very poor sound quality or because they contain substantial quotations from copyright material

   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.

   If you're not used to downloading files from the internet, please see the Insights Page on the St John's website for more information about what to do.  (There are many more sermons there as well!)
