Christianity in the City

Pete Matthew, our assistant minister at CCB, forwarded this article to me.

The article heading says

God’s bankers: How evangelical Christianity is taking a hold of the City of London’s financial institutions. Alex Preston asks how the disciples of evangelical Christianity reconcile their faith with the avarice of high finance

It’s about Christians in financial institutions in the Square Mile and Canary Wharf. But it talks also about St Helen’s, St Peter’s Barge and Christianity Explored as well as HTB and Alpha. Thought I’d post it. Preston doesn’t quite get everything right. But it’s worth a read.

Marcus Nodder, who’s speaking at the London Men’s Convention on Saturday features in the article. The caption for his photo reads, ‘Walking on water: Marcus Nodder is the chaplain of St Peter’s Barge, a church which floats on the Thames near Canary Wharf’. Nice!
