The Pulpit

The pulpit is the place where, every Sunday, the preacher uses the Bible readings to explain the Christian faith and to apply it our lives today.*

Christ in Majesty

The modern sculpture above the pulpit, ‘Christ in Majesty’ by Peter Ball is carved from oak and covered in copper, brass & gold leaf. It reminds us that the responsibility of preachers is not to expound their own ideas but to point us to Christ.*

What we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord’.

2 Corinthians 4:5
