School Lessons

An invitation to Park Gate Primary School Southampton for an afternoon of lessons, asked to teach the subject, ‘Christian Baptism’ – and the surprise was to find out I have an Ofsted Inspector sitting in as well!

Food Glorious Food!

A weekend of 5 food based events, men’s breakfast, harvest suppers, services and lunches as well as a Church tea – fighting off those calories – great opportunities for sharing the gospel!

LIFE Expo

It has been good this week to do some ‘ground work’ regarding the LIFE Expo’s visit to Hampshire in 2018.
I will be involved in two visits of the Expo, these will be inter-Church events, one in the city and one with village scools in the countryside. The recruitment of volunteers and the contacting of schools has now begun!

Venue: St. Paul’s Sarisbury Green SO31 7BG

Dates: July Monday 2nd to Friday 6th 2018

The LIFE Expo is a great resource that brings Churches together in their outreach and presents the gospel so many school children.

FirstServe Update!

Thank you for praying for Jen, Alex and Annalise. They arrived safely in Scotland and have now started their studies at Tilsley Bible College. Please pray that during their 4 weeks there their relationship with the Lord will deepen and they will each be better prepared for the next phase of their FirstServe experience. Pray too that the jet lag wouldn’t last too long for Jen and Annalise!

Sarah (below) has completed her time on the FirstServe programme and is now studying at Tilsley College for the next year. Please keep her in your prayers as she looks to the Lord for guidance in the months ahead.

Encouraging news

“Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days.”
(The Bible: Ecclesiastes chapter 11 verse 1)

20 years ago a teenager trusted Christ on a houseparty that I spoke on in Dorset, I was blissfully unaware of that moment. Encouraging to hear news tonight that; (1). He was saved. (2). He has this week been appointed Pastor of a near by Church!

Alresford Show 2017

The Alresford Show

On Saturday look out for us on row D94 – working with New Farm Chapel, Alresford as we witness to the thousands of people who will be at the show – tea/coffee tent plus Penny face painting & my mega secondhand books & Bibles stall.

The Alresford Show is a traditional one day agricultural show promoting the best of local farming and agriculture.  Dating back to 1908, the Show is held annually on the first Saturday in September at Tichborne Park, Alresford.
As well as traditional livestock championships and horse competitions the Show also hosts a companion dog and horticultural show.

The Show is packed full of exhibits from modern and vintage agricultural machinery to cows, sheep, pigs, goats, chickens and bees, whilst over 150 trade stands sell everything from locally produced food to tractors!  Truly a Show with something for everyone.
