Here Is The Latest From Surfers Anglican
Preaching style and sermon type
At the Surfers Paradise Anglican Parish we typically preach the Gospel in an expository style which follows the assigned lectionary reading for the day. This means the type of sermon you can expect at our church services will be evangelical and expand upon the Bible as written, yet put into contemporary terms that are easy to understand for us here and now.
Our sermons typically follow the style as advocated by Mark Dever and Greg Gilbert in their book 'Preach: Theology Meets Practice', in which they show there to be an introduction, an exegesis, an illustration, an application, and a conclusion as the five stages of a sermon. https://www.christianbook.com/preach-theology-meets-practice/mark-dever/9781433673177/pd/673177
As our services (on Sundays) usually run for about an hour, the sermon part of the service usually takes up about 20 minutes of that time.
