  Longest outdoor preach-world record set by the Revd Eric Delve
 
  MAIDSTONE, UK -- The vicar of St Luke’s, Maidstone, the Revd Eric Delve, preached for 24-hour, setting the world record for the Longest outdoor preach.

   Photo: Mr Delve chose a busy junction in the town for his sermon, which took points from Genesis to Revelation — “even those, like Leviticus and Deu­teronomy, without much narrative”, he said. “We billed it as crea­tion to the end of the world in 24 hours.”

 He preached continuously for the first two hours, starting at midday on Friday. After that he took one ten-minute comfort break on the hour and just one 20-minute interval for lunch. At 6 a.m., he was almost overcome with exhaustion.

   Crowds gathered at times, some­times hostile. “Some were being in­sult­ing and rude and shouting things, and at other times people were confrontational. Some we man­aged to win over by building rela­tion­ships as they walked past,” he said. “One young lad started insult­ing me and then came back and said, ‘I didn’t know you was doing it for 24 hours. Respect, mate.’”

   Listeners ranged from never fewer than ten to the 150 who cheered Mr Delve and counted him down at the end.

   He was hoping to raise £20,000 through sponsorship to help dis­advantaged children through Com­passion UK, the chosen charity of the Det­ling Christian conference, of which he is the organiser and speaker.   

   Revd Eric Delve: “There is no previous world record at the moment for the longest outdoor preach. Twenty-four hours is a marker we’ve set down for the rest of the world,” he said.
