Welcome to St Bride's

During the interregnum we are pleased to welcome Bill Wilson.

Ordained in Manchester, Bill now lives in Brighton with his wife Anne. He retired in 2010 after 17 years at St James, Paddington during which time he also served as Area Dean of Westminster and a member of the Diocesan Advisory Comittee for the care of Churches.

Since then he has covered other interregnums at St Andrew-by-the-Wardrobe and St Michael’s Cornhill.

Amongst his interests, Bill lists 19th century church architecture, campanology and ‘church-crawling’.

'Zacchaeus come down, I must stay with you today.' (Luke 19:5)

Jesus' invitation to Zacchaeus, the despised tax collector, produced an immediate response and a life-changing experience. Jesus sees something worthwhile in Zacchaeus and that triggers something in the despised man. His change of heart results in a change of life, and all because Jesus invites himself to supper. What can happen in our lives when we make room for Jesus?

Lord, come and stay with me. Fill my home with your presence and my heart with your praise. Amen.
