The Festival of Preaching takes place at Christ Church, Oxford from Sunday 8 Sept to Tuesday 10 Sept. The Festival, organised by Church Times and Canterbury Press, aims to inspire, nurture and celebrate all who are called to proclaim the gospel today. Speakers include Brian McLaren, David Hoyle, Paula Gooder, and Mark Oakley. 

The Festival is sold out, but if you didn’t get a ticket, you can watch Paula Gooder and Mark Oakley’s talks live on the Church Times Facebook page, and videos of some of the other talks will be available afterwards on the Church Times YouTube channel. We also plan to feature a recording of one of the talks on the Church Times Podcast.

The Revd Ally Barrett, a priest and tutor at Westcott House, Cambridge, will be leading a seminar on all-age preaching. Her book Preaching with All Ages, is published by Canterbury Press and is available from the Church Times Bookshop for the special price of £13.50.

Ed Thornton spoke to Ally Barrett ahead of the Festival.
