Dream : Discover : Dare

There’s still time to book in for this day aimed at 11-18 year olds who are exploring what God is calling them to be and do. I’ll be there, leading some activities, and I’ll also be running some follow-up online. For more information and to book, please contact Libby Leech on

Speak Life… in Evangelism

If Jesus is such good news, why do we find it hard to share our faith? Sometimes we need to be reminded about how amazing the gospel is. Perhaps we need confidence in what to say. This day of training will do both! “Evangelism through revived Christians” is the vision behind Speak Life and will be the heart of this event led by Glen Scrivener. You might recognise Glen from his amazing spoken poetry videos such as this recent Easter one:

Saturday 23rd April, 10-4pm at St Bartholomew’s Church, Wednesbury. Take a packed lunch, but please do let St Bart’s know you’re coming, especially if you’re taking a group, so that they can plan accordingly. Download more info here.


Thy Kingdom Come

“Jesus Christ calls every person to follow him. As Christians it’s our duty and joy to share that invitation. That’s why the Archbishops of Canterbury and York are inviting every church in England to join a week of prayer this Pentecost, from 8-15th May — let’s pray for every Christian to receive new confidence and joy in sharing this life-transforming faith.”

There are lots of resources for churches and individuals to get praying for other people to hear and receive the good news of Jesus. Why not take up the challenge to pray for five friends?
