  • Hands of Compassion School in Ndola, Zambia
    Hands of Compassion School Zambia - 15th Anniversary
    When I last visited Hands of Compassion School (HoC) in Ndola, Zambia,  back in 2010, a bore-hole was being dug in order that the school could have its own water supply.  I remember the afternoon well.
  • Easter Day 2015
    ‘Alleluia! Christ is risen!’ That great acclamation will be echoing around the world today in countless languages as Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. 
  • Christmas truce memorial
    Christmas Midnight Sermon 2014
    One hundred years ago tonight saw something quite extraordinary happen. There was an unofficial Christmas truce along the front line in World War I.  Such truces have happened before, but this one arose spontaneously in different parts of the line.
  • St. Edmund's Church
    St. Edmund’s Church Living Well, Dartford
    It is great that half the congregation today was here ten years ago for the dedication of this new building.  The dedication contained within it a marvellous vision of Living Well to which the people of this congregation have been faithful and, indeed, have built upon. 
  • Singing, Forgiveness, Reconciliation and the Estonian Song Festival
    ‘The person who sings prays twice.’  These were the words of St. Augustine, the Bishop and church theologian who lived 1700 years ago. If that remains true for us today – and I believe it does – then thousands of prayers were rising to God  from the Song Festival here in Tallinn yesterday. 
  • A Robin
    Little Voice, No Voice and the Birth of John the Baptist
    Some of you may have seen the film ‘Little Voice’ which was released in 1998.  The film is centred around a young lady living at home and dominated by an overbearing mother.  As a result of a difficult upbringing, she was a bit of a recluse and had a little, quiet voice.  However, she came alive when she sang.
  • Morden College Founder’s Day
    At end of last year, the world mourned the death of Nelson Mandela. He was certainly one of the most remarkable statesmen of the last 100 years, if not more.
  • French Hospital, Rochester
    296th Anniversary Celebrations of the French Hospital, Rochester
    One of the issues dominating British politics for many years is immigration. Elections are won and lost on these matters, as we have seen over the last few weeks.  Who should and who should not be allowed into Britain? 
  • Bamberg Apocalypse
    Ascension 2014
    ‘The Glory of God is a human being fully alive.’  These are the words of a Christian from the church of many centuries ago, a man called Irenaeus, who was a near contemporary of Justin Martyr,  some of whose relics you have here in the church.
  • Easter Vigil 2014
    Do not be afraid;  I know you are looking for Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has been raised. These were the words that the women heard as they went to the tomb on the day that Jesus was raised.
