    My all-age talk for Christmas Day 2012. Using an illustration of the extinction of the Christmas Island Pipistrelle I ask people to think about the future of the Church in England. Will we listen to the leading authority in our Church and take action?

Since then there has been silence. The tiny animal was 2 cm in length and weighed less than a £1 coin. At the start ...read more
