Next Friday we’ll be releasing a “group think” film called “The Draft – A Conscription of Conscience”.
It won’t be the kind of film to watch while eating a McDonalds. (more…)
OH, THE CHILDREN! THE CHILDREN! OH, THE CHILDREN!
A terrifying moment came in the history of Israel, in the land of Egypt, when God’s restraint suddenly seemed to “fail”.
God heard and He saw and, so, God answered.
(As a parent – as a Mummy or Daddy – how would you answer your suffering children as they cried to you for help?)
At that time in Egypt, just as today, the exclamation mark in the cry of His enslaved, worship-suppressed people was the petrified screaming of countless infants & children.
Don’t be deceived or blasé, friends: there may be nothing new under the sun but the days in which we are living are unparalleled in their evil.
Christ is coming to judge the living and the dead – to demonstrate His justice, beginning with His true Church – and He will not be appearing on a My-Little-Pony with a poxy rainbow flag in hand.
May we be prepared in heart and mind and will for the shaking travail that is coming as our Heavenly Father, Yahweh, again interrupts our proud, trailing history.
“…whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.”
— Matthew 18:6
We’re now less than a week away from converging on the Cultybraggan ex-POW camp in Perthshire, Scotland to film “The Draft – A Conscription of Conscience” – a new short film series exploring the future of the Church. A group of 20 sojourners and technical crew will be filming next Saturday, 11th January, 2020. Explore The Draft film series, here.
It’s not too late to invest in this documentary if you’re able and would like to? Click here.
We’re certainly very grateful for the generosity of everyone backing the project so far.
Are we ready?
I know that the burden on everyone’s heart is the glory of God and faithfulness to Christ. However, are we ready for the radical preparation that the Spirit of God is leading us into?
Without doubt, we are living in very significant days and I covet your prayers, personally and for the project.
Jesus is coming and the fundamental landscape of the British Church is changing.
Thank you for praying.

This year has been very busy throughout. I’m certainly not complaining though because it has also been a very fruitful year.
In the summer we released the groundbreaking book Body Zero – Radical Preparation for the Return of Christ.
We had a publisher all lined up, a contract signed, sealed and delivered but, as the 1st of July approached, (the release date that I knew the Lord had given me), they started to get cold feet. So, long story short, I pulled the book from them and made the brave decision to go completely independent.
Here’s a wee video of behind the scenes of that hectic first couple of weeks in July:
Following the release of Body Zero, the book fell into the hands of the very kind team at Prophecy Today UK who reviewed it very warmly, plugging it for us in their magazine and again in their newspaper a few weeks ago leading up to a Christmas.
You can read the Prophecy Today UK review here.
Consequently, we’ve had to go back to our superb printer and arrange a second print-run!
We’ve also wanted to have “taster” vlogs available for each chapter; something to whet the appetite amidst the busyness of life as well as providing a glimpse of the author where it might be harder to discern tone and nuance from the black and white of a page.
These are now all available, away from the distractions of Facebook and social media, on Vimeo’s showcase service.
We also have an epic Kickstarter crowd-funding project from January 2020 if you would like to invest… or know someone else who would?
Jesus. You might love Him. You might hate Him. You might reduce Him to fanciful notion and religious crutch. Jesus. Regardless, I have come to find Him to be irresistibly, insatiably and authentically Who He said He was: the Way, the Truth and the Life – the only reconciling way to know and embrace the Father. Jesus. Very God of Very God. His loving Presence unmistakeable, incomparable. His eternal, infinite reality transcendent over everything physical and emotional and spiritual, making perfect sense of our incomprehensible smallness. Jesus. He is Sanity in anxiety; He is all substance found in faith. I don’t think we really know what it means to abide in Him; I don’t think we really know what it means to pray. So much of life and so much of “church” conspires against these bread and butter inheritances. Some wittingly some unwittingly. Either way, I believe God wants to revive us through tears. No man lives via bread alone. Check out my vlog on prayer via my author’s page here and, if you haven’t already, grab a copy of Body Zero by clicking here.
Is there more to life than this? Heck yes. The supernatural life of a disciple of Christ… enough wasted time. We need to be radically prepared for His return.
I had just got out of a taxi outside Newcastle train station and I was burning with the Holy Spirit of God. (more…)
A very exciting collaborative team, including quality film-makers and screen-writers, have now gathered around this project.
We paused on the filming of The Bothy Sessions a couple of weeks ago sensing that there was more in the Lord’s heart about this than just a cool book review/response.
There’s a much-needed, wider conversation about the unique mental health challenges for the Christian, and this is now going to be shot in early August 2018. It’s a humbling undertaking.
In the meantime, if you’re interested, please drop me a line with any questions and – for a little taster – here’s a little more context for you:
