“Do I still yearn for your glory to lighten on me?”

I have spent the past three days at Breakout gathering, a time for pioneers across the streams of churches to gather and support one another as well as have some direction and input. Roy Searle led us to consider the ancient Celts to help us pioneer today. Their Rhythm and Patterns in connecting with God…

Everyone you meet is a potential disciple of Jesus.

I wrote this article for this Autumns Baptists Together magazine. Enjoy: Everyone you meet is a potential disciple of Jesus. Everyone. The first friends of Jesus were plucked from one way of life and work and plonked into a new role of heralding and showing the coming Kingdom of God. Fishermen to fishers of men….

Sharing faith

My co-worker Revd Glyn Jones has recently written some insights to sharing faith. It’s awesome what he’s written. Enjoy! A student has asked me any thoughts on sharing faith so here are mine – for what it’s worth… Become more yourself – no more and no less, that is the way God made you and…

May I say something to you?

I was struck by a phrase that I read in the book of Acts when Paul was carried away from an angry crowd who were shouting for him to be rid of! Paul asked ‘may I say something to you?’ (Acts 21.37) So I made a simple sign and set up a plinth for me…

I’ve heard a number of times recently from people I’ve met the phrase “It was meant to be…” Today was no exception as a lady in the pub was prayed for. It was the first time she had been ‘out’ in 7months apart from hospital appointments. At the time of being prayed for by one…

Faith and football. How the church made football the game it is today.

My friend Simon Goddard wrote this cracking message about football with a little help from “Aston Villa and the Mission of God” published in Christianity Magazine June 2010: In local ministry we used to show the World Cup matches on a big screen, providing a family friendly venue in a rural context for those who wanted…

A lecture for Fresh Streams Theology School, June 2018 Introduction: The question that sparked the need for this lecture is: ‘Should the Gospel be communicated through miracles such as healing and provision, just as much as good deeds and words?’ Without running the risk of speaking at the world’s shortest talk the answer is yes!…

Sunday morning down the pub…

It’s my favourite time of being church when I get to hang out with the majority of people who don’t go… and I ‘be’ church around them! Today in Cambourne I painted prophetic paintings in Morrisons cafe and then the local pub with fellow prophetic artist Steph Philips. The opportunities to connect with and share…
