People on the edge are turning to churches and finding they are loved. The Church is not dying - it's holding things together with incredible strength and passion. That’s what I saw in the Diocese of Rochester.
Just like the unexpected assortment of people invited to see the baby Jesus, when you #FollowTheStar you don’t have to be perfect. Just come just as you are on this life-changing journey. Sign up for daily reflections over Christmas: www.churchofengl...

On the second Sunday of Advent, we read the words of John the Baptist calling us to prepare for the coming of the Lord. Throughout Advent we wait, we prepare, we open our hearts to welcome Jesus Christ. But I wonder if we can also look at this a diff...
Today, the Presiding Bishop of the Evangelical Church in Germany and I called for our churches to work for unity and understanding in Europe. Some politicians and political forces are trying to drive a wedge between people. We are seeing the rise of ...
It’s been 80 years since Britain saved 10,000 Jewish children on the Kindertransport. Today we gave thanks for them - who have given us so much - and those who rescued them. It’s our obligation to rescue children needing asylum in every generation.

I’m on my way back from three amazing days in the Diocese of Norwich. Like they do around the country, churches here are doing so much to love and care for their communities. Helping ex-offenders, feeding those who are hungry, breaking down social iso...
This is Jamie, who I met and prayed with today at Christians Against Poverty UK in Great Yarmouth today. It’s such an honour to be patron of CAP. There are centres all over the country for people caught up in debt. Thank you for opening your doors and ...
Last night I took part in an incredibly moving pilgrimage of reconciliation at Norwich Cathedral. Reconciliation is a difficult, often slow, painful and harrowing process. Yet it’s a God-given ministry. It demands the whole of who you are, and leaves...
Delicious lunch at St Stephens Church café, which serves people who are poor, lonely, depressed or isolated in some way. It was deeply moving today to hear about how they have experienced healing and community here. 'Do not neglect to show hospitality...
From food banks to debt counselling, lunch clubs to language classes, these figures spell out for the first time the sheer scale of our churches’ commitment to their communities.
The life, purpose and perseverance of the Anglican church in Chile is an example and challenge to us all. It was truly a gift of God to be with our brothers and sisters as they become the 40th province of the Anglican Communion! You can read my serm...
¡Gloria a Dios! It’s been a huge joy to inaugurate the 40th province of the Anglican Communion in Chile today. The Iglesia Anglicana de Chile is a growing church bringing people to faith, and serving others with great love and care. It’s a sign of h...
