Pompey Pioneer

My mate (and fellow priest) Mark Rodel is the new City Pioneer Minister in Portsmouth. He's started a blog to record his thinking and progress around his exciting new form of ministry. Click Here to read it.

Mark is doing some fascinating thinking which, I'm certain, is going to help us all the think about the nature of our lives and mission. Get in on the ground floor by engaging with his brain right now!

New Year - New Website Layout

Happy New Year!

Over the holidays, I've been thinking about the way this website is laid out. So in order to make it a bit easier to navigate, I've decided to publish my sermons on another blog - taking up less room here, I hope!

So, if you would like to read what I will be preaching this Sunday, then please click here to read a sermon sparked by 'The Baptism of Jesus'.
