New Year's revelation

I absolutely love the start of a new year. I’m an optimistic, hope-filled, good news person and as such the greeting in of a new year is a time when I look forward to all that lies ahead.

Don't leave Jesus in the manger

I love Christmas. It’s an amazing time of fun, celebration, food and joy. More than anything else it’s the moment when we celebrate the birth of Jesus, and it’s been amazing these last few weeks to remember the Saviour of the world being born in Bethlehem. Those around us seem so much more…

Junction moments

Prior to coming to serve at the Evangelical Alliance, I spent 14 years working for Youth for Christ. I loved seeing many young people come to faith and was constantly encouraged by the overwhelming percentage of people in the UK who do so under the age of 25. I was also quite taken with an image…

Church/Change at the Evangelical Alliance 'for such a time as this'

As a member of the Evangelical Alliance council, it was wonderful to be at the commissioning of Gavin as the new CEO. I didn't tweet about the moment because I wanted to reflect more than a tweet would allow. There is a need to look back with thanks and gratitude as well as celebrate what is to…

Are Christians able to live out the gospel in our culture?

Help equip the church to share the gospel

Though 57% of people in England call themselves Christians, just 9% are what we might call "practising Christians". That's fewer than 1 in 10 people who know Jesus and live out their faith in their daily lives. Perhaps more worrying still, 54% of non-Christians who know a Christian have never had a…
