New Podcast - Not My Enemy 

It is so easy to regard other Christian denominations as inferior to our own. To think we are closer to the truth than others. We can also have an 'us and them' attitude to people of other faiths.

The Stadium Journey -Video 

I started thinking about the possibility of worship events in stadiums and arenas in 1986. The first one my band participated in was in 1996. A small crowd at Crewe FC's stadium in the UK.

Do we want a Jesus Revolution? 


The movie 'Jesus Revolution' recalls those exciting days at the beginning of the Jesus Movement, that swept through California, the USA and beyond. 

Sadly, I discovered a generation later, that the radical, revolutionary edge had disappeared from the denomination where it all started.

This podcast asks if we truly want the inconvenience and disruption that a new 'Jesus Revolution' will bring to our churches.

New Song - "Still Dreaming" 

We have just released this new song and as always, our producer Caroline Bonnett has woven her magic, as musician, arranger and producer. We are so pleased with the way it has turned out. It was written earlier this year, as we reminded ourselves to keep dreaming and never lose our sense of adventure.   We hope it will be an encouragement to you.   You can listen and download for free by clicking on the image.

New Podcast - Prophetic or Nostalgic 

The past 50 years has seen the exponential growth of the contemporary worship movement and brought the Church new songs and hymns. The songs of our generation were radical and prophetic when first written. But it is easy to settle for these past blessings and the hymnology that we are comfortable with.

Is our worship still prophetic, or has…
