Benin, Cuba, India, Kenya, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Romania, South Africa, South Korea, Togo. Just a few of the nations visited by those who gathered for the PT Cross Cultural Preaching Training in October. It was a wonderful day meeting with brothers who shared a concern to see expository preaching develop and flourish around the world. We were envisioned from Isaiah 19 and God’s global gospel goal - his guaranteed plan to gather the nations to worship Him for eternity, even from those who might seem least likely to do so. We were humbled as we considered the character needed for cross-cultural preaching training and the importance of humility, integrity, servant-hearted flexibility and patience. We were reminded of key convictions about expository preaching and the nature of training preachers. We were helped by Neil Watkinson generously sharing masses of resources and his experience in running training courses, thinking through the content and style of such training. We were equipped in thinking about the cultural differences we might face and how best to consider and speak into those different cultures. We were encouraged as we talked with each other over food about different experiences we had faced in different settings. We were strengthened as we prayed together, depending on our Father for help in this ministry. A super day that was hugely encouraging and stimulating, both for those who were new to teaching overseas and for those who have done so for years. Many thanks to Neil Watkinson and the PT team for laying on the day.
This is a very short book (67 pages) and aims to “give you an accessible introduction to the many questions that surround the transgender issue, as we hold our questions up to the big story of the Bible: the story of creation, fall, redemption, and glorification.” It is written for Christians and is highly accessible and readable.

PT Cornhill London Week 2017
Thursday 14th December 2017 –
Monday 18th December 2017
PT Cornhill London week is for UK-based undergraduate students. You will be placed with a ministry family in London, living and serving with them in the busy lead-up to Christmas. This is an opportunity to experience ministry first-hand. Each weekday morning is spent at our central London offices where there will be time to reflect on what you’re learning, to discuss the practical implications and to be taught by Cornhill staff and other London-based ministers.
Started in 1991, PT Cornhill exists primarily to train preachers, as well as equipping men and women to teach the Bible in other contexts, such as youth/children's work and women's ministry. Click here for more details
