Peter Stevenson

Peter Stevenson was ordained in 2000, moving to London in 2009 as a Special Category Minister within the United Reformed Church, and was encouraged to build a new church, a congregation and a community in the Elephant and Castle area. He is married with two children.

Peter was educated in Cambridge and Princeton USA and holds both a Bachelor of Theology and a Doctor of Ministry. He regularly broadcasts on BBC Radio London.

Crossway church has served the community of the Elephant and Castle for over a century and from three different buildings. Today it is home to ten congregations, three day centres, and numerous community groups.

This book traces some of the church’s history against the wider context of urban ministry and the changing sociopolitical milieu of the region. It includes accounts from some of those who attended Crossway in the past, as well as other fascinating stories such as connections to royalty, a delay-action bomb that exploded near the church and a local love story.

The Bible is our spiritual food – daily bread that can help us live in relationship with Jesus and in accordance with God’s perfect plan. But for many of us the stories of scripture can be difficult to fully understand. They are translated from another language, another culture, another time. Without significant academic training, how can today’s believer enjoy the inner nourishment that scripture is supposed to provide?

Revd Dr Peter Stevenson provides us with a fresh way to bring the Bible stories alive, using the healing miracles of Jesus as examples. He invites us to seek out the healing beyond the miracle, the hidden voices of the many onlookers who were impacted by Jesus’ ministry.
