the early days of Methodism, the term 'Local Preacher' marked the difference
between the lay-preacher who remained at home, preaching in his immediate
neighbourhood, and the 'Travelling Preacher' (nowadays known as ordained
Ministers) who gave up their fulltime occupations to travel and spread
the Gospel. Local Preachers remain an important part of the church
today. The House Group is fortunate to have had two dedicated Local
Preachers as members - David Allen and the late Cecil Mathers. We
therefore thought we would include a few of their sermons in text format.
Sometimes when a sermon particularly touches us, we wish we could hear
it all over again. Well, on this page, you can re-read your favourites
as often as you like! These are transcriptions of actual sermons preached
in various local churches. May you be blessed. Just click on
the preacher ...
On this page we hope to provide
some thoughts, testimonies and articles that friends and members of the
House Group have shared. We hope you will find these reflections
thought-provoking. And don't forget - if you have something you'd
like to share, please feel free to contact us with your submission.
