After a wait of over a year, Richard Fisher has visited Lambeth Palace to receive the prestigious Alphege Award for Evangelism and Witness from the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. Awarded in 2020, the ceremony had been postponed because of the Coronavirus pandemic.

‘Richard Fisher has led [BRF] in a remarkable way, developing it from being primarily a print organisation to becoming a leader, and arguably the leader, in fostering Fresh Expressions of Church in the United Kingdom.’

The Most Revd and Rt Hon Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury
