Faith with Haith
A look at life through the lens of faith, with various guests
2 days ago
In Conversation with Matt Redman
Singer-songwriter Matt Redman's music is both listened to and sung by millions around the world every day, especially the double-Grammy award winning "10,000 Reasons". He's also authored eight books and helped start three new churches, all whilst being a loving husband to Beth and a great dad to 5 kids. But, at the end of the day, he's just Matt and his honesty and vulnerability in this interview are deeply moving.

In Conversation with Julia Strachan
I remember the day when Julia Strachan (nee Immonen) announced to me with glee that she was going to row the Atlantic. And I especially remember my reaction...(let's just say I was rather sceptical and very nervous). But she only went and did it: she faced up to mountainous waves, endless technical failures and crushing self-doubt all in order to raise awareness about modern-day slavery. What a story. What a woman.

In Conversation with Andy Henderson and his son Archie
I find these weekly conversations so deeply humbling: to be able to talk with people at such an intimate level is such an honour. In this episode, Andy Henderson and his amazing son Archie share their life experiences which have been nothing short of excruciating. We get the word "excruciating" from the word "crucifixion": Andy and Archie, individually and together, have experienced the pain and yet also the power of the Cross. To witness their faith is searingly beautiful.

In Conversation with Andrew Steer
This week's conversation is with an extraordinary man: Andrew Steer, who heads up the World Resources Institute. He has had, to date, the most extraordinary career helping entire nations towards economic growth, reduced poverty, better healthcare and education and all whilst protecting the environment. Andrew believes that sustainable development goals are possible at the same time as working to stem the flow of climate change, and, crucially, that there is most definitely a spiritual element to it all.

In Conversation with Martin Smith
A total delight to interview one of my favourite songwriters. I've often been in the crowd enjoying the music of "Delirious?" and many of Martin's songs have deepened my faith over many years. This is your chance to get to know the great man behind the great music just a little bit more.

Politics and Religion in the USA: In Conversation with Peter Wehner
You will never meet a more intelligent, insightful and courageous journalist, and a more balanced, nuanced and compassionate Christian, than Peter Wehner. We got to know each other when I was leading a church just outside DC: every coffee and every lunch was a meeting of both minds and hearts. If you, like me, are struggling to understand what is going on in America, in politics and in the church, then listen in now.

In Conversation with Charlie Groves
This week I interview Charlie Groves, one of the finest men, and finest musicians, alive. The "Faith with Haith" podcast has always been about real faith and real life, and this episode is no different. In our conversation Charlie opens up about his real life, focusing in on what it is to be the father of a son with autism, all the highs and all the lows, and how love conquers all.

In Conversation with Pat "The Portable Priest" Allerton
Fast becoming one of the best-known vicars in the UK, Pat took to the streets during the first lockdown to help bring light in the darkness. With a hymn, a prayer and a quality sound system, he showed London that God is very much with us, even if we have to keep the church doors closed....and he only got unplugged once! Listen in now to hear how Pat's faith has developed over the years to give him such love for people today.

In conversation with Audrey Wiggin
Everyone’s story is so different. We all see this thing called life from such diverse angles and we all appreciate God and spirituality in such varied ways. But, within those differences, there are fundamental similarities that make us all the same; profound truths that bind us all together. This week's guest, executive coach Audrey Wiggin, has seen it all: tragedy, sadness and stress...love, hope and success. Having worked for many years in the high-octane, male-dominated world of finance she retrained as a coach. Listen in now and be inspired by her faith journey as she sets about running her own business alongside lockdown motherhood.

In Conversation with Eugene and Dorothy McDaniel
"Courage is not the absence of fear, but the presence of faith" When his A-6 Intruder aircraft was shot down over North Vietnam on May 19, 1967, Red was captured and spent six agonizing years as a POW in the infamous “Hanoi Hilton” prison. In the face of unrelenting barbaric and sadistic torture, McDaniel remained a source of hope and strength for his fellow POWs by clinging to his faith in even the darkest of hours. "The one thing they could not take from me was my faith" says Red. "There were many times in my lonely cell when my victories were known only by me and God.” For three years, Red was listed as Missing in Action while his wife, Dorothy, and three children, did not know if he was dead or alive. In 1970, the Hanoi government finally acknowledged that McDaniel was being held prisoner. After six years in captivity as a POW, he was released on March 4, 1973. Recorded live in Washington DC in May 2017, this is their story.

In Conversation with Matthew Hall
It's time for those New Year's resolutions. What will yours be? I have a hunch that many of you that listen to this podcast have a creative urge and your desire is to make that come to life this year as never before. I also believe that for some of you there is a major career change coming. My guest this week is a man who is a living example of both of those things. It took courage and it took faith. But "Keeping Faith" is what Matthew Hall has done, so very well.

What a complete delight to welcome back two of my oldest and dearest friends: Busky and Lorne were a hit when we did our first podcast together right at the start of "Faith with Haith". Listen in now to hear (not much) profundity and (quite a lot of) silliness. Happy Christmas!

In Conversation with Mary Wallis
It is my absolute delight to introduce to you one of my greatest heroes, Mary Wallis, and on the day of her 80th birthday! When you see Mary you see a lifetime of kindness: 40 years as a nurse at Great Ormond Street Hospital. Then she retired...and immediately set about volunteering there, which she has done for the last 14 years! Tune in now to hear what it is to devote yourself to a life of love and service.

In Conversation with Rebecca Stewart
Brilliant at leadership, Rebecca shares a whole host of insights gathered from a very varied career. But, as for us all, life for Rebecca has had its struggles and she shares these too. This is a must-listen, especially for anyone thinking about their work in a post-Covid world.

In Conversation with Nadim Ednan-Laperouse
London, July 2016. Little did he know it, but stepping onto a plane to France, Ednan was also about to step into every parent's ultimate nightmare. His 15-year-old daughter Natasha was about to suffer an extreme allergic reaction mid-flight as he could do little more than watch in terror. But something else also happened on that plane that day. Nadim's is a story of searing agony, mysterious revelation and ultimate hope.

In Conversation with Nicky Gumbel
This conversation was very special for me because I've known Nicky for many, many years, and worked for him for a lot of them. I love his raw honesty in this interview: an interview that reveals both his great joys and his very real struggles.

In Conversation (again) with John Sutherland
Mental illness is a reality for many, and a real possibility for us all. In this episode John Sutherland, my first ever podcast guest (and now my first ever returning guest) speaks with honesty and insight as he focuses on the depths of his experience of depression. The world can feel very dark at times: my prayer is that this interview brings light to your life.
Nov 1, 2020
In Conversation with Patrick Pearson-Miles
Somehow, some people, when faced with truly terrible life experiences, are able to access a level of peace and joy that leaves me almost speechless. Patrick is one of those people: he has struggled with disease and and all kinds of intrusive medical interventions, but these assaults on his body have only served to strengthen his faith. If you've ever wondered how to trust God through dark times, and if you've ever questioned whether healing is still available today, then tune in now.

In Conversation with Niiella
If you love singing you will love Niiella: she has, quite simply, the most exquisite voice. In this episode I ask her all about her life, which began growing up in both Ghana and London, and I manage to get her singing quite a lot along the way. No need to thank me. Just enjoy.
Oct 17, 2020
In Conversation with Junior Garr
With his amazing choir and Black History Project about to be broadcast, there's no time like now to interview Junior Garr. Every week I get to work with this brilliant man at MLC (Midtown London Church @ St George the Martyr, Holborn). I guarantee you this: you will love the man and you will love the music.
Oct 10, 2020
In Conversation with Mike Pilavachi
Of all the people in the world who have the gift of making Christianity understandable, Mike is most certainly one of the finest. He makes faith and spirituality in the modern world feel as it should: the most normal thing in the modern world.

There are some people in this world who have the gift of making complex concepts accessible. When it comes to theology, no-one does that better than Mike Lloyd. In this episode he steps up and answers some pretty tricky questions about God.

Emmy has dedicated her life to helping people, first as a nurse, then as a vicar spending most of her time in prisons. She is the most wonderful example of how God uses the most unlikely people to fulfil the most extraordinary purposes.

Guilt, worry, PTSD, depression. All of us know that life is difficult and our mental health needs to be carefully protected. Will is passionate that people navigate their life journey well and has some brilliant insights to help make that happen.

In Conversation with Colonel Ash Alexander-Cooper
One of life's true yet unsung heroes, Ash's career in the military has left him with extraordinary wisdom gathered from around the world. Many point at religion as creating conflict but Ash has seen first-hand that it is not religion itself, but rather intolerance that is the presenting problem.

In Conversation with Gav Cutler
In this raw and honest interview, Gav opens up about growing up experiencing abuse and addiction, and how his life now is not at all where he expected to end up.
Jun 20, 2020
In Conversation with Amy Orr-Ewing
I once thought that a "Christian Apologist" was someone who spent all their time saying sorry for the church. As much as that might be necessary, it actually it means a person of learning who can defend the Christian worldview and show that it makes sense. Amy is one of the finest apologists you will ever hear. Tune in now.
Jun 13, 2020
In Conversation with Peter Wehner

Don't ever let anyone tell you that having faith makes life easy. That's simply not true. But it certainly does make life interesting and Rae is a perfect example of that, taking us on a journey with grace, honesty and humour.
May 10, 2020
In Conversation with Paul Cowley
Few people have done more to impact the social justice system around the world than Paul Cowley. He shares with us his unlikely but beautiful life story which has led him to have passion and purpose today, helping men and women find faith in prison and a new life beyond the walls.
