Before that he was part of the leadership and staff team at Belmont Chapel, Exeter, UK for over 20 years.

Topic: The Church:  what, why and how?

"The Church is a bit like Noah’s ark.  It’s a stinky mess inside, but if you get out, you’ll drown." (Shane Claiborne)

Being born again means being born into a new family, the church. And just like our human families, our spiritual family can be both an immense joy and a painful struggle. These talks will remind us why being part of a local church is essential for healthy Christian living, and give plenty of practical pointers on how we help our churches to be healthy, flourishing, Christ-centred communities that show people Jesus and his gospel.
