Preben Andersen

Preben Andersen

The Reverend Preben Andersen is a Methodist minister of religion who, at the age of 70, has recently retired from active ministry to concentrate on his life-long ambition of writing books. He is of Danish origin but domiciled in Britain since 1977.

He is married to Margaret, they live in Clevedon and have three adult children and numerous grandchildren, many of them living just across from the Severn Bridge. He enjoys writing, reading, walking, Scandinavian crime on TV, and he is hoping soon to join an outdoor bowling club for much needed exercise (says Margaret!)

His writing has proven to appeal to Christians and non-Christians alike and he has written numerous regular articles to the secular press over the years. His aim is always to point people to Christ but in a non-threatening and gentle and often humorous way.

Preben would love to hear from you at any time and has a reputation for replying promptly, so please do not hesitate to e-mail him on This can be for advice, with comments, or to hear more about what he has written over the years, in a non-commercial capacity, and with any profits mostly going to church charities.

Thought for the Weak started as a regular column in the Free Press newspaper by the Reverend Preben Andersen. Now the best of his popular writings have been gathered into this treasury.

Preben’s column was beautifully Christian but with a gentle and often humorous style, attracting readers exploring faith and those unfamiliar with the Christian message, as well as followers of Jesus. His writings often draw on current national and local events for stories and illustrations, but his messages are firmly based on Scripture and are as relevant to us now as they were to the local community when they were written.

Find yourself at times amused, at times moved, at once challenged and encouraged, as you dig into this nourishing collection.

From the first news of the Covid-19 outbreak in the UK, to the hope arising from a vaccination programme being put into place, Rev. Preben Andersen has written poetry to keep a record of our shared 2020 pandemic experiences in the UK.

His poems cover the politics and the scramble to understand the science, but also the daily experiences and sacrifices we have all had to make, and the challenges for frontline workers, school children, separated families and others. Behind it all, Preben recognises a God who is still on the throne, and working in our lives even as our experience of church has changed.
