The throne, the church

What a celebration we had on Sunday. Very different, very creative. Some bits may not have been "your cup of tea", but the overall effect was great. more

You are awesome!

As I start the week, I find myself reflecting on the privilege of leading Wantage Community Church. On Sunday there was a Kid’s Praise event and an Alpha course running downstairs, helping children and adults discover more of God. In the evening the NewID course started, helping people find freedom from eating disorders. more

Four baptisms and a run

A friend pointed out that it's nearly a year since I last posted to my blog. When I started, I managed to fix a time in the week when I would sit down and write my blog entry, but the rhythm of life changed and I forgot to keep up with the blog. So, turning over a new leaf, time to start again. more

Love in action

Really enjoyed the inaugural South Oxfordshrie Celebration, gathering the Abingdon, Didcot and Wantage churches. As the old saying goes, we are definitely stronger together and it's was great to gathr to worhsip God together, to pray for couple of initiatives in the area and to hear Rich and Kate speak. more


As I said on Sunday, my arm took a bit of a knock a few days ago. As the pain wasn't getting better I took myself off the Abingdon Minor Injuries yesterday where they informed me that I had a minor fracture in a bone in my elbow. For those who like details, it is called a "cheese slice". As it happened in France, this seems very appropriate!

In at the deep end

8:30am, Sunday morning, enjoying a shower. D pops her head into the room to tell me that Steve called and I'm leading the celebration. In at the deep end again. To be honest, I enjoyed it and count it a privilege. It was great to worship God with passion together and to touch God's heart of compassion over the meeting. more


I was encouraged on Sunday. Admittedly, I often am, but I felt that we are starting to breakthrough in praise more than we have before. Giving time to giving God praise is a key to our lives and it is sustaining to us, and a blessing to God! It helps us to keep our focus on the awesome, amazing God we have the privilege of knowing (and whose limitless love for us we know). more

More snow!

Monday morning, and I'm sturck again by the beauty of the snow as it falls. OK, it's also a bit of a pain, slowing the traffic down, making it hard to get around, and meaning that we're not only cold, but also wet. more

At last - a not too complex week!

Monday morning comes around again! I suspect that today will be mainly dedicated to trying to work on my backog of email, admin and things like that! This is a fairly normal looking week for me, with lots of time meeting varous people in various places. more


Last week was a challenge and had some great news! I was hugely excited by the faith I´ve encountered in various members of the church over the last coupleof weeks - and the number of people whoǘe told me that they feel provoked by God to pray for one new person to get saved or join with us per week this year. more
