Welcome to the Festival of Preaching

The Festival of Preaching aims to inspire, nurture and celebrate all who are called to proclaim the gospel today. 

Featuring outstanding speakers from across the Christian Church, it offers a stimulating and varied programme of worship, lectures and workshops.


2021 Festival of Preaching

13-14 September 2021

Tickets are now on sale for the 2021 Festival. Join us online or in London. 

Over two days we'll explore preaching and interpretation in-depth, hear sermons from skilled preachers, and join together in worship.


Listen again to the 2019 festival

You can revisit the thought-provoking worship, lectures and seminars through audio recordings. These are available now via Church House Bookshop >

Selected talks are also available to watch online.



A message to the festival from Walter Brueggemann

"We preachers have an opportunity to declare that there is another narrative out of which we can live our lives. It is a narrative of generosity, and freedom, and forgiveness, and hospitality, and justice. It is the narrative of the future, and I am very glad that we share it."
