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)



Our featured sermon for May is an exposition of Luke, chapter 7, verses 41-43, the parable of the two debtors told by the Lord Jesus Christ.

Featured Sermon: PPJ 16 The Two Debtors –  Audio

Featured music: When this passing world is done – Audio

Our featured music this month is the lovely old hymn by Robert Murray McCheyne (1813-1843) as sung by the congregation at Lansdowne Baptist Church, Bournemouth, in 1982.

When this passing world is done; When has sunk yon radiant sun, When I stand with Christ on high,
Looking o’er life’s history: Then, Lord, shall I fully know, Not till then, how much I owe.

When I stand before the throne, Dressed in beauty not my own; When I see Thee as Thou art,
Love Thee with unsinning heart: Then, Lord, shall I fully know, Not till then, how much I owe.

When the praise of heaven I hear, Loud as thunder to the ear, Loud as many waters’ noise,
Sweet as harp’s melodious voice: Then, Lord, shall I fully know, Not till then, how much I owe.

Sadly, the last verse is missing from our recording.

Chosen not for good in me, Wakened up from wrath to flee: Hidden in the Saviour’s side,
By the Spirit sanctified: Teach me, Lord, on earth to show, By my love, how much I owe.


Notes for May:

    • This month we have added a new series of 6 sermons to our Short Series page. They are on the subject of SALVATION entitled:

    The Source of Salvation – the Lord opened her heart;
    The Ground of Salvation – the Lord Jesus Christ;
    The Means of Salvation – Faith;
    The Evidence of Salvation – Assurance;
    The Reason for Salvation – the Glory of God;
    The Joy of Salvation – Names written in Heaven.

    • Also on the Short Series page are series of messages based on Psalm 1; Psalm 23; and the seven utterances of our Lord Jesus Christ as He suffered on the cross entitled: Cries from the Cross.
    • We mentioned previously that we will be publishing some of Harry’s booklets on our website. This month we have posted the booklet entitled: Dealing with Doubt. Throughout the ongoing coronavirus pandemic many people who have experienced great loss and uncertainty have doubts and questions in their minds. The article examines the question of doubt by looking at a biblical hero who faced doubts and fears, and how the Lord Jesus answered his question. 
    • The articles From Harry’s desk can now be found on a page of their own listed by year from 2014 – 2020. For ease of navigation the parent page contains a list of the articles featured in each year along with the link to that particular year. Click on:  From Harry’s desk


    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.
