Our July 2017 magazine has been delayed in the post

27-Jun-2017 We apologize to any of our members who are still waiting for The College of Preachers' magazine The Preacher, issue no. 166, dated July 2017, to land on their doormat. There has been a slight delay in the distribution, but your magazine should be with you shortly. In the meantime, if you're getting impatient, this edition has already been available for members to download (along with ten years' worth of previous editions) from this website's Members' Zone for the past three weeks. To receive the magazine or to access the downloadable version you first need to join the College.

Partially themed around the topic of the environment, this latest issue (pictured) contains sermons for all Sundays from August to October 2017 (two each, based on different lections, for 6th August); and gives a special place to the centenary of the ordination of Constance Coltman, the first woman to be ordained in a mainstream church in Britain (17th September). The magazine also contains feature articles of interest to preachers (e.g. Creation Time, Jesus On Soil, On Care for Our Common Home, Preaching Eco-theology and part 2 of some articles started in issue 165); book reviews; and news from the College.

By the way, one of the articles from the magazine, plus one of the sermons, is always available for free on our promotional page for The Preacher - for those preachers still deciding whether to join us or not!

If you receive a paper magazine as a member of the College, do check for any inserts within your magazine, because one may be a letter reminding you that this is the last issue you will receive on your current subscription. If so, you will need to take action now to renew your membership. The simplest way by far, is to visit our on-line shop and select the option "12 month membership". Tick the box for PayPal and you will be led to a page where you can enter your PayPal e-mail address and password, or can set up a PayPal account if you don't already have one. Then you may rest assured that you remain a member of the College, and will receive issue no. 167 in September - a special issue that will take the theme "My Preaching Life" and focus on how preaching changes and shapes the preacher. Please note also that if issue 166 is the last issue within your current membership term, your access to this website's Members' Zone may have already been rescinded and, if so, will remain so until you renew your subscription.
