Welcome – Sunday Services
On Sunday mornings, we are looking at the apostle Peter’s first letter to the scattered Christians of his day. Why should we take any notice of Peter? Why should what he wrote to 1st Century Christians matter to us nowadays? Come and find out each Sunday till Easter…
Lee Mill is between Plymouth, Plympton and Ivybridge in South Devon, just off the A38. Our chapel is on Plymouth Road, near the ‘Famous Lee Mill’, just inside the Sparkwell Civil Parish.
Morning Service – 11.00 am – Mixture of contemporary and traditional evangelical worship – Refreshments are available after the service. Activity bags are provided for younger children during sermons. These are regularly updated with pencils, colouring, stickers, and puzzles such as word searches and dot-to-dots. Question Sheets are usually available for under 14s to help them to start listening to sermons (with rewards afterwards for those whose parents are not dentists!). Children’s talks are now called ‘Think it Through‘, and usually happen towards the beginning of services.

Previous Preaching Series…
The church is something invented by Jesus Christ himself, so how should we view it? Should we be suspicious of it as an institution? Or should we love and care for it as something more like family? How much does God care for his church? Why do some people hate it?
Winter 2015 Preaching Series
Christmas 2014 Preaching Series
We looked at the book of Ruth leading up to Christmas 2014. It provides important background to understanding the Christmas story, rooting it in historical facts and explaining God’s plans to show us his kindness through Jesus.
We also give away free copies of the book, “Sshh…Don’t Wake the Baby”.
The instructions were, ‘Do bring a torch (not a candle, please!) to Carols by Candlelight on Christmas Eve, some children, some friends, and then stay for eats afterwards’.
Autumn 2014 Preaching Series
John’s eye witness account in his gospel continues with Jesus’ great ‘I AM’ statements, the raising of Lazarus, and then the long road to the cross.
Late Summer 2014 Preaching Series
The book of Esther is fascinating in many ways. It does not mention God, at least not by name anyway. And yet the book is all about that invisible God, saving his people from their enemies. And the story is so theatrical! Look at the dramatic picture on the poster below where Esther accuses the “vile Haman” of genocide. Did somebody mention genocide? The book is strangely up to date considering that it comes from 2,400 years ago and 4,000 miles away. It is a wonderful combination of fun and deadly, deadly serious!
Early Summer 2014 Preaching Series
Notice the slightly fuzzy picture of Lee Mill from the North. People can be similarly fuzzy about how we are to partner with each other in the work of the gospel. However, this is explored in the apostle Paul’s letter to the church in the city of Philippi. Through this series, we hope that everyone now has a clear
view of what it means to be a gospel partner, i.e. a real Christian who is a member of a local church, dedicated to making disciples.
Spring 2014 Preaching Series
From the start of 2014 we looked at the first seven chapters of John’s Gospel at 11am on Sundays. Gospels are always in the news – you know, the phony ones written in the name of Mary or Barnabas, usually from 4th Century or later. We looked at John’s Gospel, one of the 4 real (and only 4 real) ones from 1st Century AD…
Christmas 2013 Preaching Series
Usually, the Christmas story is told in a rather twee way that misses out all the gory bits! Well, we looked at the real thing, UNCUT, at 11am on Sunday mornings in December. We were also giving away free copies of the ‘Christmas Uncut‘ book.
See the calendar tab for the titles of the series, or listen to the MP3 recordings by clicking on the Sermons tab.
The Lord’s Prayer 2013 Preaching Series
Do you find real prayer easy? If your answer is “yes”, you’ve never done any! We had a preaching series on the Lord’s Prayer, focusing on the two versions Jesus gave us in Matthew 6 and Luke 11. Listen to the MP3 recordings by clicking on the Sermons tab.
A warm welcome awaits you.
