Week 1: Hearing the text (Wednesday 9 September 7.30pm-8.30pm)
How can the God who speaks through Scripture speak again through the messages we preach? This session will introduce you to the primary ingredients of preaching and outline a simple but effective process for conceiving messages that grow out of Scripture.

Week 2: Engaging the listeners (Wednesday 16 September 7.30pm-8.30pm)
What makes some sermons relevant and engaging, while others are dry and boring? In this session we explore how to build a strong bridge between Scripture and culture, between the world of the Bible and the lives of our listeners.

Week 3: Shaping the message (Wednesday 23 September 7.30pm-8.30pm)
How do you structure a talk so that it has focus and momentum? In this lecture we examine some of the different patterns that are available to us and the issues to consider when choosing between them.

Week 4: Speaking the word (Wednesday 30 September 7.30pm-8.30pm)
It’s one thing to conceive a good message, but how do you deliver it so that people will listen? In our final session together, we consider the basic principles of effective and compelling oral communication.
