One such involvement is with the Diocese of London and its Sports Network Initiative. This month, our Director for London Rob Santer reflects how churches […]
  • Endure the Jostling
    When the going gets tough, the tough get going. Or the weak implode. Either way, when life gets bumpy there’s an opportunity to find out what we’re really made of.
  • My Prison Journey
    Travelling with God “For the Lord hears the poor, and does not despise his prisoners.” Psalm 69:33  “Let the groaning of the prisoner come before you: According to the greatness of your Power preserve those who are appointed to die.” Psalm 79:11  When I was first asked to write a blog, I really struggled with […]
  • Help for fathers
    This week, ‘Beat’ launched an online support group for fathers of people with eating disorders. The struggle of seeing someone you love in turmoil and being unable to fix it for them – it’s an all-consuming battle for everyone involved. And as is often the case in these situations, support for fathers is hard to […]
  • I’m a man?
    Yes, and here it is! Stiff upper lip. I’m a man. Strong. I’m a man. Burn stuff and take hipster photos of mountains. I’m a man. Depressed. I’m a man? Question every decision I make. I’m a man? Pretty sure I’m no good. I’m a man? You know something is wrong when you question your […]

    I want to focus o two things: firstly my own personal experience of poor mental health, and secondly I want to reflect upon our role as “resurrection people” in amongst the challenges that mental illnesses bring into the lives of people. A few years ago I performed the funeral of a man in his 50s […]
  • Frozen Past
    Before I worked for CVM I was pastoring a small church in Essex. It was a fantastic place and as a family we loved being part of the church and walking with amazing people on their faith journey. Recently I had a phone call about a lady who was part of the church community who […]
  • Imagine if we did not have Jesus
    Just recently I was given the news that I had Metastatic Oesophageal cancer with a shortened life expectancy of 9 months. Although the consultant was looking directly at me for one brief moment, I had to check myself from turning around to see if she was talking to someone else. In the weeks and months […]
  • Slaying Your Dragons
    Every single day, when the alarm goes off at 6am I face a stark choice. Without fail, the choice I make in those first few moments will always ultimately shape the rest of my day. You see, at 6am I need to choose between my personal dragons and following Jesus with all my heart. This […]
