Reverend Richard Walker 8th November 2020
This interview with the Reverend Richard Walker was recorded in the church of Saint John the Evangelist in Yeadon during the celebration of 175 years since the consecration of the church.
It is a bit echoey and you can hear the congregation and visitors and a child. As Richard says “everyone is welcome in the church” which includes vocal children and me!
Richard is a straightforward, plain speaking and friendly man who will surprise you with some of his views including exorcism and the church, missionary work in Belgium and the Bible.
Richard ends our chat with a message for future generations listening to the interview.
