HK – June 2020


The purpose of this website is to make available the preached ministry and writings of Dr. Harry Kilbride.

“…if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me – the task of testifying to the gospel of God’s grace.” (Acts 20:24)



In the last eighteen months since the pandemic first struck many thousands of people have, like us, lost loved ones or dear friends. Those of us who are Christians, through our tears, are able to look beyond the grave to our great hope of eternal life through the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ – and that is the subject of our featured sermon this month.

Featured Sermon: FO 23 Heaven: The Christian’s Great Hope –  Audio

Featured music: How pleased and blessed was I – Audio

This lovely old hymn of Isaac Watts was always one of our favourites for opening worship on a Sunday morning.

How pleased and blest was I to hear the people cry, “Come let us seek our God today!”
Yes with a cheerful zeal we haste to Zion’s hill, and there our vows and homage pay.

Zion, thrice happy place adorned with wondrous grace, and walls of strength embrace thee round!
In thee our tribes appear, to pray and praise and hear the sacred Gospel’s joyful sound.

There David’s greater Son hath fixed His royal throne; He sits for grace and judgment there.
He bids the saints be glad, He makes the sinner sad, and humble souls rejoice with fear.

May peace attend thy gate, and joy within thee wait, to bless the soul of every guest:
The man that seeks thy peace, and wishes thine increase, a thousand blessings on him rest.

My tongue repeats her vows, peace to this sacred house! for there my friends and kindred dwell;
And, since my glorious God makes thee His blest abode, my soul shall ever love thee well.

In this 21st century when the world is changing so rapidly and becoming increasingly uncertain, we believe that there is one foundation that is sure and unchanging – God’s Word.  Harry’s preaching method is expository, that is, God’s Word explained and applied to every day life.

With the advent of the internet and all the modern technological advances it is now possible to make Harry’s ministry freely accessible to anyone who visits this website.

Harry writes:

I came to faith hearing the message of Christ preached through the evangelist Billy Graham on March 2, 1954 in Harringay Arena, London, England, and I am now well advanced in years.

Most of my life since 1954 has been spent preaching and teaching God’s Word. The majority of those messages were recorded. We have taken a selection of messages from several sermon series and have put them on this website to be listened to online, or downloaded for later listening. ” All are free of charge.
