Kensington Temple 50 years!

In May 2015, we celebrate 50 years of KT. It would be equally justified to celebrate 84 years, as the history of KT really started in 1931 – only we were ‘in exile’ from 1943 to 1965. I believe that Kensington Temple is part of God’s covenant with the early Christians in Kensington. When I see us alongside other significant... Read more...



Going deeper with God

Going deeper with God

If you really want to experience a deeper life with God, you need to answer three questions honestly. The first is, “What are you pursuing most in life?” This will reveal what you really are living for. Most people assume that because they are believers in Christ then they are actually living for God as the first goal of their... Read more...


The release of the Spirit

The release of the Spirit

“The water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of living water springing up into everlasting life.” (John 4:14) Being filled with the Spirit is more than experiencing his touch upon your life. It is far more profound than that. As temples of the living God, we are already indwelt by his divine presence. Imagine, the... Read more...


Talking to people about God

Talking to people about God

You may not feel particularly attracted by the thought of an octopus. Perhaps your only interest in one is when you eat Calamari, made from one the octopus’ closest cousins, or if you are especially wild about some Chinese specialty dishes. But can a female octopus teach us something about having an on-going conversation with a seeker about God and... Read more...


Out of the depths I have cried to you, Lord

Out of the depths I have cried to you, Lord

(Psalm 130:1) The beginning of this Psalm touches a familiar experience for us all. Of course it’s natural and right to turn to the Lord in times of deep distress. We’ve all done that at one time or another. He always draws close to listen and answer. During times of crushing brokenness he is always present to help, comfort and... Read more...


A place of deep rest, inexpressible joy and pure worship

A place of deep rest, inexpressible joy and pure worship

Have you ever felt a longing inside you so deep, so profound, that sometimes you barely notice its existence? And yet you know it is there. It is like an aching void within that you long to fill but don’t always know how. You believe that you have been made for fellowship with God and that fellowship is profoundly satisfying...

The power of your testimony

The power of your testimony

God has given to you the ministry of reconciliation! You are an ambassador for Jesus, and he has given you the task of introducing him to people through your testimony. In Acts 1:8 Jesus says, “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all... Read more...


The promise of power

The promise of power

Jesus said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Now when...

The anointed Church

The anointed Church

In the Old Testament, a staff was a symbol of prophetic authority. When Elisha sent his servant Gehazi to resuscitate a dead boy, he equipped him with his staff as the sign that Gehazi was acting in the name and authority of a true prophet. Gehazi had previously observed a healing miracle and had only to do exactly what his... Read more...


Jesus is Lord!

Jesus is Lord!

The Lordship of Jesus Christ is one of the most important Christian truths. In fact, your entire life of faith depends on it. Your faith is empty, and you have no hope of salvation, if Jesus is not the Lord (the ultimate authority in creation, the absolute ruler of the universe), and if he has not proved his Lordship by...

Three million people waiting

Three million people waiting

“I believe we should be more confident about our status as a Christian country, more ambitious about expanding the role of faith-based organisations, and, frankly, more evangelical about a faith that compels us to get out there and make a difference to people’s lives.” (David Cameron, Easter Speech) We are still a Christian country – or so the Prime Minister...

Resurrection now!

Resurrection now!

Our faith is founded both in the past accomplishments and the future promises of God. The resurrection of Christ happened a long time ago. Our resurrection will take place in the future. But this has a lot to teach us about how to live for God now. As we look back to the resurrection of Christ and look forward to... Read more...


Step out of the boat!

Step out of the boat!

The miracles that demonstrate who Jesus is are not just the ones he performs independently from his Church, but also the ones he does in us, with us and through us.   The miracle of walking on water followed straight after the feeding of the five thousand. The miraculous multiplication of bread and fish was supposed to teach the disciples... Read more...


The battle for souls

The battle for souls

Real faith is all about engaging in the most significant battle that we can ever face, and that is the battle for souls. Many evangelists and those who minister in the miraculous often say that the biggest miracle that they experience is not the healing of a body, but the saving of a soul. In this battle we are facing... Read more...


Strongholds of the mind

Strongholds of the mind

It is said that truth is the first casualty of war. Nations at war use propaganda as a significant weapon against each other. In spiritual warfare truth plays an even more crucial role. It defines the very nature of the battle. The heart of spiritual warfare is the battle for the hearts and minds of people. All demonic strongholds are... Read more...
