Wherever I am, whomever I’m with, I make sure the subject of church planting comes up. Like the time I first met Adam Laughton on a short-term teaching trip to Nigeria. I peppered him with questions. Who understands church planting in Britain? Who do I need to meet? Who would share my aspirations to see as many churches as possible planted in our country? It was there in Nigeria that I first heard the name, Ali McLachlan. Continue reading

In recent years I have enjoyed good health – seldom having as much as a cold. There was that one time though – three years back – when a case of food poisoning took me out of commission completely for the better part of a week. Unhappily, this illness coincided with a trip Frances and I had planned to the Black Forest in Germany where I was speaking at a residential conference on church planting. I insisted up until 24 hours before the conference began that I would be well enough to make it. I wasn’t. Continue reading

When Grace Baptist Partnership was formed in 2010, we were asked to specify our area of operation. We said England and Wales. In reality it would take several years before we would have any tangible involvement in the work of the gospel in Wales. That involvement, when it came, would be in the form of a monthly grant to Grace Rural Wales Partnership for the work of Simon Bowkett. Continue reading

Andre Bay was persistent. As pastor of a local church in Wetzlar, Germany he had a desire not only to see his church strengthened but to see new churches planted. He requested help. Our work in England was really just beginning. Even though we had a desire to help, time and money were in short supply. Andre, though, as I may have mentioned, was persistent. Continue reading

Grace Baptist Church, Epsom. Grace Baptist Mission. Grace Baptist Partnership. Grace Baptist Assembly. Euro Evangelism. Illyrian Gospel Trust. Harry S. Truman once said, “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That’s a good word for all of us. Continue reading

I’m not an apostle. I didn’t see the resurrected Lord. I didn’t receive the apostolic commission. I haven’t been given the ability to perform miraculous signs and wonders. Jack Jenner is not from Macedonia. As far as I know he has never even been there. But be sure of this one thing, Jack has been saying come over and help us in Cumbria as long as I have known him.

I will never forget the day Ben Cunningham handed me a tract as I walked down Wood Green High Street with my family. Who could have dreamed that a tract and a brief conversation would set in motion a chain of gospel events that continues till this day? Continue reading

I’ve always had a lot of time for Matthew Gray. When I first met him he was a deacon at Grace Baptist Church in Southport. He then signed up for our training group at Radcliffe Road Baptist Church in Bury, Greater Manchester. Though Bury is not just around the corner from Southport, he faithfully attended the sessions month by month. In time he would take up the pastorate of Jireh Baptist Church in Wigan. He continued – despite the demands of a new pastorate – to meet with us in Bury. In fact, when we finished the two-year training cycle it was at Matthew’s request that we continued with additional studies for well over a year more. Continue reading

London’s oldest Baptist church closed in late 2014. The closure of the church once served by luminaries such as William Kiffin, Abraham Booth and Ernest Kevan deeply saddened many people. The closure of the historic church, however, was more than a blow to ‘denominational’ hubris. It was a dent to efforts to evangelise one of London’s most diverse and rapidly growing towns.
