Sermon Series

Second Corinthians is the most personal and poignant of Paul’s letters to churches.  It is full of moving reflections on personal weakness, the power of the gospel, our hope for new life and the call to personal holiness. 

In this letter Paul opens his heart to the people of Corinth and invites them to open their hearts to him. Together we will explore the first nine chapters of this powerful letter, and discover how we might open our hearts to the work of Christ among us.
