Sermon ideas

Topical suggestions for adults and all ages

Every week, ROOTS Adult & All Age offers you 3-4 sermon ideas on one of the week's readings. See examples from one week.

As the resources are written from scratch shortly before publication, you can be sure that the ideas are fresh - giving you a chance to explore how the gospel speaks into today's world. The writing team always includes a biblical scholar, so you can be sure that the resources draw on current biblical scholarship. Find out more about how we produce ROOTS.

As well as the freshly-written materials, we provide quick links to more sermon ideas for the same lectionary reading, published in previous years of ROOTS. Plenty of material to support your sermon preparation and reflection!


PostScript: sermon ideas linked to the week's news headlines

Every week, we publish PostScript - a reflection on the coming Sunday's reading, linked to the news headlines. You could use PostScript to help you refer to important topics that are dominating the news headlines - in a meaningful way. See the latest PostScript on our homepage.


Preaching on a different Bible reading?

The ROOTS archive contains over 7000 sermon ideas, covering 16 years' worth of material - including a wide variety of Old Testament and New Testament readings. If there are sermon ideas for an alternative reading, we'll provide a quick link to them.


Looking for ideas for an all-age context?

We offer an idea for an all-age conversation each and every week - helping you to share thoughts and ideas across the generations. See an example.
