I recently read an interview with Steve Backshall in which he said “Parenting has got to be the hardest job in the world” – maybe he’s right but he hasn’t even reached the terrible two’s yet! Most of us want to be ‘better’ parents don’t we? (whatever ‘better’ means!), but there are so many aspects […]

Once more, as Christmas approaches, it’s that time of year when we can all think about being involved in ‘Bake and Pray’ – now in its 16th year and still going strong!

During this past summer RCB had two church conferences that gathered most of its congregation for three days of fellowship, worship, learning and fun together. More than 30 people got […]

I first started calling ceilidhs in a hastily converted games hall on the West Coast of Scotland half a lifetime ago. I have since called them from Italian mountain-tops, Scottish garage forecourts, my best friend’s wedding (in full bridesmaid regalia) and any number of places in between. Each of them have been delightful in their […]

Ministry Trainee, Christchurch. Durham. I am working as a ministry trainee at Christchurch Durham, with my time split fairly evenly between administration and practical work, teaching others through talks and bible studies, and being taught myself through formal and informal sessions. The first few weeks have included a holiday bible club, a conference seeking to […]

Ministry Trainee, Christ Church. Kensington. London. I was at St John’s from 1999 to 2018, and graduated from university this summer. Christ Church has been around since 1851, and has always been very traditional, using the Book of Common Prayer and a fully-robed choir. After years of stagnation, a larger London Church (St. Helens) were […]

I’ve been serving voluntarily with Mercy Ships for 16 months now, and have had the privilege of working and living alongside people from many different countries. I am genuinely humbled when I consider that this ship is staffed by professionals who have chosen to leave their homes, countries, families, friends, possessions, jobs and salaries in […]
