At Christmas-time in 2017 I decided that instead of writing a Christmas message, I’d record it as a video. Then from January 2018, I started uploading regular videos to YouTube about Christianity and the Bible. Over time I felt that God was calling me to develop this internet ministry, and this website was launched in November 2019.

Who am I?

My name is Phill Sacre, the creator of Understand the Bible. I am a pastor from the UK – I am ordained in the Church of England, I serve a parish on the Essex coast (Clacton). I trained for three years at Oak Hill Theological College in North London.

My background is in software development, I was working with websites since the age of about 14, so Understand the Bible is a good combination of my skills and interests!

If you’d like to know more about me personally, you can visit my personal website. If you’d like to know more about where I am theologically, have a look at the basis of faith.
