There are many terrific quotes attributed to Winston Churchill, even discounting the ones erroneously given to him.

Does it matter what you wear to church?

Does it matter what you wear to church?

Are those who dress smartly in their ‘Sunday best’ for church just holding onto silly traditions? Does it matter what you wear when you worship God?

In heavenly love abiding: from acting to Christian ministry

In heavenly love abiding: from acting to Christian ministry

Paul and Elaine Harper were actors beginning to enter the ‘big time’ in their careers in the late 1960s. Theatre and TV work was coming their way. Paul had just had a big break as part of a very successful theatrical production in London’s West End. However, despite these successes, they both felt a gaping emptiness and growing unease.

The decline of the local church

The decline of the local church

Our prayer is that people would come into our churches from the local area, saved and unsaved, to add to our numbers. Yet, I’ve been troubled in recent months by the thought that many of us don’t go to churches local to us.

Dealing with doubts

Dealing with doubts

Doubts. We don’t often talk about them, but we all get them. We’re in a great spiritual war. Wherever a little green shoot of life pops up, you can bet your last Rolo that our enemy the devil will rush to jump on it. To survive, we must deal with our doubts and fight back.

Did you know that over 50% of books in the UK are sold through Amazon? This share jumps up to 70-80% for books bought online. Meanwhile, independent Christian bookshops are falling by the way-side, and now Amazon are making moves to cancel and censor Christian writers.

When God doesn’t answer our prayers

When God doesn’t answer our prayers

Let’s be honest, the life of prayer isn’t always a joyride. Sometimes it can seem that God doesn’t hear our prayers and His presence seems far away. We feel discouraged as heaven is silent. If this has ever been you, then I hope you can take some comfort from this blog post. God is on the throne and He is good!
