Dai Woolridge presenting Gospel Truth through Spoken Word

Hi, I’m Dai Woolridge. I’ve been doing ‘spoken word’ since before I knew what it was, and I’ve come up with the concept; ‘Spoken Truth’.


A bit about me… I’ve a spoken word poet, storyteller and author. Over the years, I’ve been privileged to write, perform and share my work for Songs of Praise, BBC Radio 2 and 4, the Welsh Rugby Union, Sky Sports and the British and Irish Lions (to name drop a few!). I lead a creative collective called ‘Sound of Wales‘ with my wife Cath, and run a poetry event in Cardiff called ‘Urban Wordsmiths’. I’m also creative specialist for Bible Society, and the venue host for the Spoken Word stage at Big Church Festival.


Other stuff…Winner of Step FWD awards ‘Spoken word of the year 2023’ ‘Bible in 4 minutes’, Outspoken Performance Poetry Award finalist 2022, Swansea Poetry Slam Champion 2021.


Books… I’ve published a few books – a collection of 21st century psalms called ‘Poetry in Motion’ (2010), a creative response to grief called ‘Prayers, Texts and Tears’ (2017), children’s book ‘God’s brilliantly big creation story‘, and a journey through the Bible in spoken word poetry ‘Six Beats One Story

I love how words can be used to tell a story and I love to share stories that I’m passionate about – from rugby to welsh culture, from the grief journey, to IVF, to what the Bible says about a guy called Jesus.

This is a shot of me in a field looking moody…

So what is Spoken Truth?

The heart behind ‘Spoken Truth’ is simple. To ‘speak’ what I believe to be ‘true’, through the medium of ‘spoken word’.  On this site, you’ll find short films which are available to watch, share, download and be a resource. My hope is that you will be engaged with the timeless truths from the Bible, and consider the protagonist of that story – Jesus.


Spoken | A past participle of speak; to say something in order to convey information or to express a feeling
