I have just received the sad news that Derick Bingham passed away this morning. Anyone who has an interest in the great CS Lewis will be aware of Derick’s work. He was a unique man whose teaching each Tuesday night has influenced and shaped the lives of many people in Northern Ireland. I had met Derick on a number of occasions and this photo was taken at the Narnia (The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe) film premier in 2005.

Derick wrote and contributed to a number of books on CS Lewis and his insight and interpretation was intelligent and inspiring. In so many ways Derick possessed striking similarities to Jack Lewis and like Lewis he will be sadly missed.

There will be a Thanksgiving Service in the Crescent Church on Sunday 28th March at 3pm.
