The Lamb of God and Holy Communion

This Sunday Philip preached on St John the Baptist’s words in John 1: “Behold, the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world”.

In this sermon we explore Holy Communion through the progressing narratives of ancient scripture, and consider how this contrasts with modernity and the modern mind.

We start in Genesis 11:7-8; move through the institution of the Jewish Passover in Exodus 12:3-15; explore Jesus’ own words in John 6:48-58; and land in the way things were in the early church looking at 1 Corinthians 11:27-31.


However bad it gets, God is still good.

Revd Philip explores Isaiah 35, with the prophet finding hope in the grim social and political landscape of Israel around 700 BC.  Seems that humanity may well be the same and need the same hope.

Preached at Easton on 11th December 2022.

For some years we have collected items for the St. Neots Food Bank at our Harvest Festivals and Lent Lunches.  The plan is to extend this support, by placing a large box at the back of the church, into which contributions can be placed.  These will then be taken regularly to the Food Bank.

Items currently needed are as follows:

  • tinned meat
  • tinned fish
  • tinned vegetables (e.g peas, carrots, sweetcorn)
  • tinned fruit
