Jem Hudson

by Terry Lovell

It was an unusual way for any couple to celebrate their 21st wedding anniversary – moving out of a four-bedroom house where they had lived happily for 17 years for the cramped living conditions of a static caravan in the isolation of a 10-acre field. The caravan, which was also to accommodate four of their…

Good news or deeds?

by Dewi Hughes

Good news or deeds? I am becoming increasingly convinced that it’s been one of the devil’s cleverest tricks to create the impression in the minds of some evangelicals – especially of the more reformed hue – that ‘evangelism’ and ‘care for the poor’ are somehow in opposition to each other. Over the years I have…

A blind spot

by Peter Milsom

A blind spot Many Christians expect to find a gospel church wherever they go in the world. This expectation may be based on an assumption that most, if not all, of the world has been evangelised. So it is a real inconvenience if we are on holiday and can’t find a church to attend on…

Reaching the poor

by Dewi Hughes

Reaching the poor I am becoming increasingly convinced that it’s been one of the devil’s cleverest tricks to create the impression in the minds of some evangelicals – especially of the more reformed hue – that ‘evangelism’ and ‘care for the poor’ are somehow in opposition. I have read articles and heard statements that create…

The church as an attractive community

by David Kingdon

The church as an attractive community As part of my training for the ministry I became student pastor of a small Baptist church in Kent.

Whose child are you?

by Mark Johnston

Whose child are you? It might seem an inappropriate question to ask, but it’s not meant to be rude or politically incorrect, nor even an invasion of privacy. To ask, ‘Whose child are you?’ merely raises the issue of where we belong in a spiritual sense. Recent years have witnessed a general reawakening to the…

by David Rees

The great commission and the Moravian response Most of us remember the words from the film Mission Impossible ‘Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is…’. This is the story of a group of believers within a small church in Germany who heard the commission of the Lord Jesus Christ to go into the…
