Public Talk Outlines

Jehovah’s Witnesses have quite a selection of public talk outlines that elders and ministerial servants can choose from. These public talk outlines are used for giving a sermon at their weekend meetings, held in local kingdom halls around the world. Historically, public talks were of 45 minute lengths. In recent times, the public talks have been reduced to 30 minutes.

Here is the full list of public talk outlines in English. The public talk outlines are provided by Jehovah’s Witnesses.

Note: The numbers in parentheses after the title of the talk outline is the date the outline was published. Dates are formatted as M/YY, MM/YY or YYYY.
