Recommended websites & podcasts

There are many excellent resources online. The below are just a small selection, and aren't intended to be particular endorsements over and against other resources and organisations, just a flavour of some of the great things out there!


Knowing FaithThe Christian faith is not mindless or irrational. Knowing Faith is a podcast from The Village Church exploring how our faith is founded upon Scripture. Like us, they believe the Bible is for everyone and are committed to helping the Church understand where their faith is rooted. Hosted by Jen Wilkin, JT English and Kyle Worley, this podcast dives into Christian story, belief and practice in a way that that is accessible to everyone.
Life & FaithFrom the Centre for Public Christianity, a weekly conversation about the beauty and complexity of belief in the 21st century.
The Speak Life PodcastEach week, Glen Scrivener and Paul Feesey from Speak Life discuss how ordinary Christians can share our extraordinary gospel. They speak about a theology of mission, interview influential writers, pastors and evangelists and give practical advice on witnessing in the context of normal life.


A New Name (Emma Scrivener)Emma talks about things like identity, culture, emotions, depression, gender, eating disorders and recovery. Most of all, she tries to think through how the Jesus of the Bible gives hope in any and every circumstance.
Keeping the Heart (Dan Wells)From the vicar of Holy Trinity Richmond.
Quaerentia (Mark Meynell)A home for seeking, curiosity and curiosities. Also a place for links to writing, speaking and media.
