Who are you?

I am a pastor, preacher, writer, sourdough baker, occasional stand up comedian, husband of one wife, father of one child, author of no books. I was last clean-shaven on 4th June 2007.

And my name is Liam Thatcher.

I have a BA Hons in Philosophy and Drama from the University of Kent at Canterbury and an MA in Biblical Studies from Kings College London. I have recently moved to Oxford with my wife Helen and my daughter, having previous been the Teaching Pastor at Christ Church London for twelve years.

You can follow me on Twitter: @liamthatcher where I often post things I find amusing, whether or not anyone else does, and Instagram: /liam.thatcher where I often post photos of bread. And if you fancy getting in touch, you can email me on liam@liamthatcher.com

What can I expect from this website?

I can’t guarantee a lot of profundity! But you can expect semi-regular posts on a range of things I’m interested in: faith, theology, philosophy, comedy, film, theatre, literature, music, and food. Chances are that unless you happen to have the exact same combination of passions as me, you will find some posts more to your liking than others.

I’ll also upload various talks I’ve given and posts I’ve written for other sites. You’ll see there’s a backlog of old posts that I’ve gathered together from the four corners of the internet – things I’ve written over the years, now finally gathered together in one place. They vary in quality, and some of them I no longer agree with. I’ll leave you to work out which ones. 

How can I support you?

Very kind of you to ask! Well, firstly I just appreciate you taking the time to read, watch or listen. But should you want to support me further, here are three suggestions:

  1. Share: If you find anything I’ve produced helpful, then perhaps someone else you know may do too. So please take a moment to share on your social media platforms.
  2. Donate: If you would like to support me financially, why not buy me a coffee via my ko-fi page.
  3. Enquire: If you would like me to write for a publication, or speak at a church or event, please email me on liam@liamthatcher.com. I regularly speak on a range of topics at churches, events and theology and leadership courses, and would be very happy to discuss whether I would be suitable for your needs. 
  4. Write: I always value encouragement and feedback, so please do drop me line by email or any of my social channels.

Thank you so much!

    Thank you Liam for the blog “Do the parables reveal or conceal?”. It really helped me address that question / tension. Often Biblical questions are answered with “all of the above”! God Bless You! ~ Steve, Los Angeles, CA
