Made by God: Sermon of the Year 2020

June 25, 2020


Sermon of the Year 2020 encourages and celebrates the art of preaching. Whether you’re a preacher of many years standing or writing your first sermon, we invite you to take part. We welcome entries from all denominations and from across the UK. All you need to do is to demonstrate that you have the passion and potential to communicate the Word of God.

The format for the event is:

  • Submission of sermons by email

  • Shortlisting based on set criteria (see guidelines below)

  • Finalists will preach their submitted sermons before a live audience
    The friendly, experienced judging panel will decide the winner and runner-up
    Location: St Paul’s Hammersmith, London
    Date: Thursday 25 June 2020.

How to enter

The first stage is to craft your sermon of 1500 words on the theme of Made by God. We believe in the power of God’s Word and the inspiration of the Holy Spirit that bring encounters with God when people preach and others hear them.

Take it away, preachers!
