Among some of the sermons preached at the 5:30pm Good Friday Liturgy are these:

Crucifixion & Clarity (2013) by Fr Daniels
The Blood is on Our Hands (2012) by Fr Spurlock
Father, Into Thy Hands I Commend My Rubbish (2011) by Fr Spurlock
I Thirst (2010) by Fr Austin
A Sermon for Good Friday (2008) by Fr Mead

Collect:

Almighty God, we beseech thee graciously to behold this thy family, for which our Lord Jesus Christ was contented to be betrayed, and given up into the hands of sinners, and to suffer death upon the cross; who now liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost ever, one God, world without end. Amen.

Today's sermon is part of a series by Bishop Chartres entitled ‘Humanity brought to life by the humanity of God’

“Is it not evident that the Father accepts the sacrifice not because he demands it or feels some need of it but in order to carry out his own plans? Humanity had to be brought to life by the humanity of God ...we had to be called back to him by his Son. Let the rest be adored in silence.” Saint Gregory Nazianzen - Orations for Easter (45)
