Why Dave Bilbrough says Garth is like a stick of rock

“Garth, you are like a stick of rock,” says Dave Bilbrough

in his interview with Garth,

which you can listen to here

Dave and Garth discuss widely,

from the journey to find direction in life

and some of Garth’s early experiences,

the world of a troubadour or storyteller,

to prophecy, the Hebrew prophets and Jesus,

the challenging Christian community, the power of a song –

and what it means to be made in the image of God.

Sermon, 19 March 2017, St Paul’s Cambridge

St Paul’s, Cambridge – 19th March 2017


Reading – Luke 4:14-30


Thanks for inviting me – St. Paul’s has been a great support to Amos and it’s good to look back with thanks over 30 years since the founding of Amos.

It makes me think, what is Amos’ manifesto – what is our foundation?  Amos started in a practical way to enable me to visit places like Poland in the communist years; Mathari Valley, Kenya; Uganda – and I would come back and tell the stories to churches, colleges, anywhere that asked.

Every Grain of Sand

by Bob Dylan


In the time of my confession, in the hour of my deepest need

Garth Hewitt writes redemption songs

and then sings them without fear.

Please God, it will help us

sing redemption songs of our own.


The Revd Lucy Winkett

Rector, St James’s Piccadilly
