Easter – What’s Your Response?

Lent is over! Well done to those of you who have resisted temptation! Easter has also come and gone, Jesus has risen to life again! Now that Easter is over, what happens next? As the Easter Sunday service ends, our hearts full of joy as we remember Christs triumph over death, we return back to normal the next […]

So You Want To Talk About Lent …

It’s that time of year again when people ask me “So, what are you giving up for Lent?” and I reply with, “My New Year’s resolution”. It’s a sad reality…   I’ve never been one for following or participating in annual holidays or significant days of the year. Valentine’s Day, to me, seems counter-intuitive because, […]


I’m sure this is likely to be one word which crops up in conversation when people ask us “so how was #URCYA16?” (Perhaps without the hashtag!).  It’s certainly been at the top of my vocabulary list! Of course that’s not been my only go to word to describe it; enjoyable has been used just as […]

Reform Offer

I’ve recently been contacted by Steve Tomkins, editor of the Reform magazine, with an offer that will probably be irresistible for all you students out there… If you’ve not heard of it, Reform is a magazine which draws together all sorts of Christian thinking on all sorts of issues – it’s published ten times a […]

A Visit Of Contrasts

For the first time ever, we’re undertaking a Moderators’ Blog Swap with the Moderators of the URC General Assembly. Read on to hear about John’s incredible recent trip to various countries in Africa!
