Vicar abseils down his church for charity

A groom-to-be and a vicar from Dorset have abseiled down their church tower for charity. 

David Oakman was persuaded to take the plunge for Christian Aid by his fiancé and was joined by other locals for the challenge. 

Vicar at St Mary's in Gillingham, Revd Peter Greenwood, also decided to get in on the fun. 

He spoke to Marcus Jones on Premier's News Hour and told him about the moment he got a phone call from Christian Aid. 

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
