We are delighted to announce that from the end of this academic year, Mark Pickles will become the new Director of the North West Partnership. Given Mark’s great contribution here, we are very sorry to see him leave. But we are excited about his new appointment, which will strengthen Oak Hill’s relationship with training in the north-west.

We are also delighted to announce that Johnny Juckes will be teaching the Gospel Driven Leadership module, bringing his 30+ years of ministry experience to the programme.

A personal reflection on the life and ministry of David Wheaton, former Prinicpal of Oak Hill, from Mike Butterworth, who was a colleague of David’s at Oak Hill from 1980, and a friend to the end.

One of my first memories of David is of his responding to a request to move furniture after a meal in the dining room, and that was typical of our loved and respected Principal. Other scenes include: his leading small groups of people from college to do a church weekend mission; a how’s-it-going walk soon after I’d started at the college; his leading daily morning prayers with domestic staff; his response to a personal criticism (to my mind unjustified, subjective and rude) from a colleague: ‘Thank you… for those observations.’

The qualities that characterized David and that are...

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.
