All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Tim 3:17).
Regular and challenging expository Bible teaching is central to our meetings. Our desire is to see everyone “rooted and established in Christ”.

This facility has only been fully tested on a standard PC/Windows platform. Compatibility with other platforms (e.g. Linux, Mac, iOS, Android) is a subject for future investigation and development.
A small number of old recordings were originally made on tape and this is indicated by the letter ‘T’ against the item as opposed to the normal ‘D’ (digital). Please note that for tape recorded messages there is likely to be a small break in continuity where the tape was swapped or turned over.
All MP3 files are automatically tagged in a systematic manner to help keep your media library organised (on a technical note only ID3v2 tags are used). The following points should be noted regarding individual tags:-
- Artist – This is normally set to “Longcroft Church” for meetings held at Longcroft and to “Christian Fellowships” for meetings held elsewhere (e.g. Rora, New Year Conference).
- Album – For regular Sunday and Tuesday meetings at Longcroft, recordings are organised as one album per month with the album name taking the format “Longcroft yyyy mm”. Other recordings normally relate to specific series for which albums are created with descriptive names. Some regular Sunday and Tuesday meetings are listed twice in the library because they also form specific series of sermons (e.g. David Vine’s “People of God” series). In these cases, membership of the monthly album takes precedence.
- Track – This is normally allocated sequentially within each album. Worship sessions, because of their temporary nature, are all set to track 99.
- Year – This is set accordingly.
- Title – This normally includes the date, speaker name and message title.
- Genre – This is normally set to “Speech”.
