Question – Are we too busy to invest in the most important relationship (after God) in our life? The 7 evenings are a safe place where you have time to spend with each other. There is a meal provided and each couple has their own table. The course gives practical tools and advice BUT the […]

In the last 48 hours, from my kids, I’ve had two disproportionate hissy fits, one refusal to go to school in trousers that did not have holes in, an ongoing monologue about why we should get rats (already named) as pets, three complaints over lunch or dinner menus, but also more cuddles than I can […]

One Wednesday in December a small group of our Toddlers, and parents, spent a very special half an hour sharing the Christmas story at Field House. We have been visiting each month to sing nursery rhymes and actions songs with the residents and every time we visit the children and the elderly get to know […]

Dear Brothers and Sisters in the Lord, In recent days I have had a growing conviction that, even in the midst of all that is currently happening, we should be praying more regularly and specifically for God’s call on St John’s to mission and evangelism in the days ahead. Having shared this with a few […]
