Manna: Summer 2018 Issue

I have recently designed the Summer '18 issue of Manna magazine. This is an A4 quarterly publication regularly produced for the Diocese of Bath and Wells.

Here are Editor Louise Willmot's thoughts on the latest issue; “‘The spirit of Zambia will live in my heart forever’, was the response of one of the parishioners who took part in the Live Learn Link visit to Zambia earlier this year. As we mark our 40 years’ ‘walking together in mission’, this issue of Manna seeks to share some of that spirit and joy.

“Bishop Peter was certainly feeling the joy of the visit when he spoke at the service of celebration at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Lusaka about the blessings of the link. The importance of the link was clear to those people we spoke to from Zambia and the churches and schools in the diocese.

“Everyone who travelled to Zambia as part of the Live Learn Link has talked of its impact and we hear from two members of the group who benefited from the visit in very different ways.

“In our interview, The Very Revd Charley Thomas, Dean of the Cathedral of the Holy Cross, Lusaka, shares his unique perspective on his home country and the diocese in which he undertook his curacy.

“With such joy in evidence, here’s to the next 40 years!”

AHSN Network Exhibition Stand and Impact Report for NHS Confed 2018

In May I had the pleasure of working on the AHSN Network’s exhibition stand and impact report for their stand at this year’s NHS Confederation event that took place on 13th and 14th June in Manchester.

The annual conference and exhibition is a unique experience where health and social care leaders can face shared challenges, find practical solutions, celebrate past successes and shape future ones.



The report and stand were designed to grab the attention of those attending and engage the viewer with the areas the Network affect. The AHSN Network brings together the 15 Academic Health Science Networks in England to support improvements around common themes such as patient safety.

As the only bodies that connect NHS and academic organisations, local authorities, the third sector and industry, they are catalysts that create the right conditions to facilitate change across whole health and social care economies, with a clear focus on improving outcomes for patients.



Below is the cover that was produced for the impact report.

Manna: Spring 2018 Issue

I have recently designed the Spring '18 issue of Manna magazine. This is an A4 quarterly publication regularly produced for the Diocese of Bath and Wells.

Here are Editor Louise Willmot's thoughts on the latest issue; “‘Church attendance is falling!’ is a familiar headline, but in this issue of Manna we look beyond the headlines and explore how the church is responding to our changing culture in exciting and creative new ways. Jonny Baker, who leads Church Mission Society pioneer training, is energised by the creative possibilities and he is not alone, as you will find out in our feature ‘On the pioneering path’, where we hear from people from our diocese who, in various ways, are doing church differently.

“We also hear from diocesan Evangelism Team Leader, Tina Hodgett, who explains Fresh Expressions and asks, ‘what is church?’ That is a question we posed when we talked to others across the diocese and you can read their stories, in My Church is..., throughout this issue.

“It is a picture of church that differs greatly from the church that Dr Colin Green, who leads the MA in Theology, Imagination and Culture at Sarum College, joined in the 1960s, but is it a church for our time?”

A1 - Issue 8

I have recently completed work on issue 8 of A1 magazine, people, places & lifestyle for Fenton and Gregory. This is an A4, quarterly publication regularly designed by myself and available digitally via Issuu.

Created by publisher Derek Gregory this issue focusses on people who work in, and operate artisan businesses. It's a fascinating read with some really interesting stories from a diverse range of businesses. Also, featured on the cover are Anthony and Eleanor Wardle from the Fresh: Art Fair which is taking place at Cheltenham Racecourse between 27-29 April 2018; this is an event that comes highly recommended.

Zambia Link Leaflet

I have recently completed work on a Zambia Link leaflet for the Diocese of Bath and Wells. This is an A5, 6 page leaflet to help promote the events taking place this Spring and Summer which celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Bath and Wells - Zambia Link.

Since 1978, parishes in Bath and Wells and Zambia have supported each other to live and tell the story of Jesus in their communities. Churches have developed and shared companion links as a focus for prayer, mission and spiritual growth. The programme is nationally recognised and it has been influential in shaping the Church of England’s approach to world mission.

More information about the link is available via the Diocese website here: www.bathandwells.org.uk/ministry-for-mission/mission/world-mission/celebrating-40-years-bath-wells-zambia-link.

Manna: Winter 2018 Issue

I have recently designed the Winter '18 issue of Manna magazine. This is an A4 quarterly publication regularly produced for the Diocese of Bath and Wells.

Here are Editor Louise Willmot's thoughts on the latest issue; “Conflict is impossible to avoid in life, but how do we keep that conflict civil and even constructive – and what can we do when it spirals out of control?

“Brendan Cox, husband of Jo Cox MP who was killed in 2015, knows the personal cost of destructive disagreements. He talks of the need to come together ahead of this year’s ‘Great Get Together’. The Very Revd Dr John Davies, Dean of Wells, also references the importance of community, along with learning, in his interview.

“Whether you are struggling to deal with a conflict situation at home, school, work or church it is good to know there is always someone who can help – you can hear from three of them in our ‘Making peace’ feature. Peace is something that Ecumenical Accompanier, Anne Plested who has recently returned from the Palestinian territory of the West Bank, prays for. She shares her faith story on page 10.

“We hear some personal perspectives from two of our clergy on the ordination of women and human sexuality, while Simon Keyes, Professor of Reconciliation and Peacebuilding at the University of Winchester, asks us to reflect on good and bad disagreement.”
