This week I had the privilege of virtually visiting Devon through the powers of Zoom and having a chat with Jon and Louise from Crossroad Seaton. I shared some of my story, we talked about how the culture around sexuality has changed, why biblical teaching on sexuality is good news and how churches can help same-sex attracted people to thrive.

Picture This Thought - Derelict church [Christendom]

Posted by Anne Witton on Sunday, December 8, 2019, In : Video 
Why the crumbing of Christendom is a good thing. Christianity was never meant to be a state religion, forced on people by powerful authorities. The Kingdom of God is much more subversive. Jesus showed the greater power of foot-washing and self-sacrifice.

Scripture engagement: Mark's gospel

Posted by Anne Witton on Thursday, August 22, 2019, In : Video 
Over the summer, I studied a module on 'Scripture Engagement' for my Master's course. It's all about how to connect people with the Bible so that they can understand it and experience its truth for themselves. One of the fascinating aspects is how to engage non-literate communities with the Scriptures. It's easy to assume that this isn't really an issue in the UK, where the literacy rate is 99% (Knoema, 2014). However, the reality is more complicated, with 16.4% of adults in the UK having ver...

Picture This Thought

Posted by Anne Witton on Friday, August 3, 2018, In : Video 


I'm exploring different ways to do discipleship and outreach, especially over the summer as it's harder to see people in person. I think that digital media can be a helpful tool to engage people with faith and help them to think about Jesus.

I have just started recording a short video reflection each day based on a photo I've taken. The aim is to think about what the picture might tell us about God and his world and my prayer is that it will spark offline conversations with students and others...

40th birthday reflections

Posted by Anne Witton on Friday, November 25, 2016, In : Random stuff 
Last week was a significant week for me as I marked my 40th birthday! It was great to be surrounded by family and friends and also to reflect on how far God has brought me. I am reminded of John 10: 10 when Jesus says "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." I haven't always been able to grasp that, but as I celebrated with so many people that I treasure all around me and thought about the hope I have in Christ, I feel immensely grateful to him for everything he's given...
