William Fitch ( - )

Listen to freely downloadable audio sermons by the speaker William Fitch in mp3 format. William Fitch was the minister of Springburn Hill Parish Church in Glasgow from 1938 until 1955. He then served as the minister of Knox Presbyterian Church in Toronto from 1955-1972. Here is an except about his ministry and arrival to Toronto from Glasgow: After another long vacancy William Fitch arrived from Scotland in 1955, fresh from the leadership of the committee of the Billy Graham crusade in Glasgow’s Kelvin Hall. In many ways he was a new Robert Burns, so like his fellow Scot from the Glasgow area who had arrived 110 years before. He was a great preacher, whose expositions gave positive evidence of his doctorate in biblical studies. In his evangelistic zeal he sought to reach the students of the University for Christ. He sought to follow the model of British ministers such as John Stott in London, who made a church alongside a university into a student centre, without in any way neglecting the rest of the congregation. He also continued the stress on missions and most of the Knox missionaries whose pictures are on the north wall of the Winchester Room went out under his ministry. In the later years of his ministry Fitch was far from well, and retired in early 1972.

In an interesting moment of reflection, William Still recounted the mindset he had as he went from University to be a one year intern in a small parish church under Fitch at Springburn Hill. Still wrote: I left Aberdeen to take up an assistantship at Springburnhill Parish Church in Glasgow under the Rev. William Fitch. Climbing tenement stairs in Springburn was different from the glamour of University life and from popularity with masses of Aberdeen’s Kirk and musical folk, and since my faith was not yet very biblically founded, although real enough, I became a little cynical about my calling and doubtless grieved William Fitch by some of the things I said from his pulpit.

 Filled with the Spirit by William Fitch

 John 17 by William Fitch

Topic:
Scripture(s): John 17  
Description: How amazing that our Lord prayed! He was the strongest of the strong and yet look how much He prayed, here we see, in what Pastor Fitch calls the 'Holy of Holies' of the whole Bible, that the Lord was extremely concerned with the state of His Church that was in the World but yet called out of it. Our Lord meditates on the gift of His Church, intercedes for the purity of His Church, declares the authority of His Church and expects the unity of His Church.

 The Gifts of the Spirit by William Fitch

Topic:
Scripture(s): Romans 12, 1 Corinthians 12,14, Ephesians 4  
Description: We see how all have at least one gift of the Spirit, how there are many different gifts, but all are from the same Spirit. We see how the gifts cannot be used properly but in accordance with scripture, and how that they will be used for the edification of believers and cannot profit selfish gain. Pastor Fitch talks mostly about the most contentious gift that of Tongues. We also see how no one person has all the gifts of the Spirit but we are supposed to have all the fruits of the Spirit.

Topic: Trials
Scripture(s): Luke 8:22-25  
Description: Here we see how in the midst of the storm (trial) our Lord is at perfect peace and instant to act when we cry out to Him even when our faith wavers.

 Ye are the light of the World - Ye are the salt of the earth by William Fitch

Topic:
Scripture(s): Matthew 5:13,14  
Description: Pastor Fitch begins by saying that the Beatitudes represent the kind of man Christ wants to make us into, this is the kind of person our Lord wants to send out into the world to be light in the darkness. He illustrates how this world is rotten and base and how ever whim of man tends to evil always. But it is the light of our testimony that will reveal the living God to a world that needs Him so desperately.
