25 years as Senior Minister of KT!

It was on Christmas Eve, 1971 that I finally came to faith in Christ in a conscious way. I knew that something had happened to me following what can only be described as a heart response to the gospel message I had heard clearly articulated, perhaps for the first time. From that moment it was as if I was living... Read more...



Church without walls

Church without walls

For most people, all they ever see are the external walls of the church. The average person in London may pass by a dozen churches each day but few will enter to find out more about God. Could it be that our church walls are one of the greatest hindrances to the gospel today? Even the dictionary states as its... Read more...


How I received the gift of speaking in tongues

How I received the gift of speaking in tongues

The gift of tongues played a very important part in bringing me to faith in Christ. At the age of 16 I arrived in London, from Australia where I was brought up. I had come to study dance. Although I had been brought up to be a churchgoer and to affirm the Christian faith, I did not know the Lord... Read more...


Mission begins where you are

Mission begins where you are

One hundred years ago, the Pentecostal Revival sparked by a sovereign move of the Spirit of God was totally gospel-centred. There were no gimmicks. Just the raw power of God. Kensington Temple soon became the operational base of Elim’s founder George Jeffreys, as he grouped a national alliance of newly planted churches. Elim in general and KT in particular carry...

Identifying marks: mission church

Identifying marks: mission church

God’s heart is for mission. He is ever-loving, ever-giving and ever-sending. From before the creation of the world God always existed as the One, Eternal and Uncreated Being. But he was not living in solitary, isolated and detached Oneness. The Father reached out to the Son and the Son responded by reaching back to the Father. And the Spirit, the... Read more...


The strongest foundation

The strongest foundation

“And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be... Read more...


Kensington Temple 50 years!

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...


Pray for Britain!

Pray for Britain!

It is our Christian duty to pray for our governmental leaders and all those in authority over us. God wants us to ask him for rulers who promote peace and dignity so that the gospel can flourish. Technically, this can happen no matter which government is in power. But this does not mean we show no interest in the practical... Read more...


Walking in wisdom

Walking in wisdom

“I ask the God of our Master, Jesus Christ, the God of glory — to make you intelligent and discerning in knowing him personally, your eyes focused and clear, so that you can see exactly what it is he is calling you to do, grasp the immensity of this glorious way of life he has for Christians, oh, the utter...

Creating a breakthrough environment

Creating a breakthrough environment

“Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. Then the lame shall leap like a deer, and the tongue of the dumb sing. For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert. The parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water;... Read more...


The gift of God’s presence

The gift of God’s presence

Hedonism is the philosophy which makes pleasure-seeking the main point of life. Everything is about trying to feel good and pursuing anything that promises us pleasure and enjoyment. This may sound like Scrooge, the Charles Dickens character from A Christmas Carol, but Christmas can play into the hedonism dictated by our cultural environment. The people of the world, for the...

He came down to earth from heaven

He came down to earth from heaven

Tucked away in a tiny verse in the book of Ephesians we find an amazing truth. Almost as an aside, the apostle Paul gives us a glimpse of the amazing love exhibited in God’s great rescue mission for humanity. “He ascended… but… he also first descended to the lower parts of the earth” (Ephesians 4:9). One of the best known... 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...
