DIOCESE OF GUILDFORD

Emily Burch, a 14-year-old from All Saints’, Guildford, has been named by the diocese as the first ever Young Preacher of the Year. She won the contest by first submitting a short video of herself preaching, and then winning a live “preach-off” in front of a panel of judges at Guildford Cathedral on Advent Sunday. Emily’s prize is to preach at evensong at the cathedral, and give a 60-second sermon on BBC Radio Surrey in January
