We had the great privilege of hosting David Suchet at Oak Hill earlier in January to do a masterclass on reading the Bible in public, when he spent two hours with over 100 students.

His love of God and his word was so evident, and his deep desire and passion for reading the Bible well in public was infectious. His message was that Bible readings should help us hear God speaking through his word.

He said: ‘You stand there with confidence, you have the gift of reading, you have prepared it all, you’re doing it because you know it’s God’s word, not yours. This is God speaking to whomever you’re talking to. It’s very important.’

I had the chance to chat with David afterwards about this.

I am delighted to announce two new positions at Oak Hill, both of which are significant and strategic steps in our development and growth as a college.

We’re thrilled that the Rev. Chris Stead has been appointed as the inaugural Mike Ovey Fellow, beginning in September 2018. The Mike Ovey Fellowship was established in the weeks following Mike’s death, given his passionate plea in recent years that we train the next generation of theological educators. Chris trained at Oak Hill after several years practising as a barrister. He is currently finishing a curacy at Grace Church, Highlands, as well as being a visiting lecturer at Oak Hill.

The purpose of the Mike Ovey Fellowship is to raise up theological educators for the future, so the fellowship is in two parallel parts. On the one...

Our graduation day is always one of the most important events in our college calender, and certainly our most public. Saturday was no different as a full lecture theatre witnessed last year’s student cohort receiving their hard-earned awards. Our graduation ceremony is always a little different from graduation ceremonies you may have attended before. There is fair amount of formality, local dignitaries are in attendance, and there are some fabulous gowns on show. But the singing is loud and heartfelt, and the gospel is always proclaimed in bold and challenging ways.

It’s probably breaking etiquette, but this year there were handshakes, hugs and kisses as the graduands received their awards. Given the year we’ve had as a college, it was an especially poignant time, and I thought it...
