Overview

In the summer of 1981, 40 men engaged in a preaching ministry gathered at a conference centre (Fairmile Court) in Surrey for a conference on 'expository preaching'. Dick Lucas, then Rector of St Helen's, Bishopsgate and Jonathan Fletcher his curate (now minister of Emmanuel Church, Wimbledon) held this conference with the aim of examining and learning what particular Bible texts actually say.In May 1986 The Proclamation Trust was formed officially, in gratitude to God for the 25 years which Dick Lucas had spent teaching the Bible from the St Helen's pulpit.Alongside EMA we run an extensive program of residential conferences for ministers, theological students, women in Word ministry, lay preachers and ministers' wives. Our growing PT Resources provide training and instruction throughout both the UK and many other parts of the world, and Project Timothy seeks to bring our resources to developing countries.A building in Borough High Street, near London Bridge, became the home of PT in 1998. It was named Willcox House after Ronald Willcox, whose support made this move possible.PT has grown over the years under the good hand of our God. The Cornhill Training Course (CTC) now trains about 90 students each year for diverse roles in ministry.In May 1986 The Proclamation Trust was formed officially, in gratitude to God for the 25 years which Dick Lucas had spent teaching the Bible from the St Helen's pulpit.From small beginnings the EMA now attracts almost 1000 delegates involved in ministry, and speakers from all over the world have included Don Carson, John Chapman, Os Guiness, Jim Packer, John Stott, Phillip Jensen, Sinclair Ferguson and Tim Keller.
