Blogs

Ever wondered what is going on in the lives of our church members and leaders? Well some of the them are blogging about the experiences, so why not take a read!

Don't just Google it

In the book of Daniel 12:4, Daniel is prophesying about the future: one thing that is said about the end of days is that knowledge will increase and folks will run too and fro, "But you, Daniel, roll up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge." Today, knowledge is easy: we google it, but are we actually learning things? And if we are learning, then is what we are learning actually true? Kids no longer seem to learn their tables by rote or learn passages of books. Increasingly they are being given tablets and iPads to find the knowledge for themselves. But what if the knowledge we find isn't true? We all have heard about fa

Have we read it?

Our website that is. How many of us log in every day or every week or even every month to see what is happening in church as seen through the eyes of our website? Not many I guess. So why do we bother? Maria spends hours each week updating and changing the site with all the latest details about us as a church, she has spent days sorting out the GDPR stuff and what a good job she has done. So why?

The other week our granddaughter came home from school in tears. The school had been running "We've got talent" competition and along with half of her class she had entered it hoping to be voted as the class choice for the next round. She didn't make it. On the one hand as a granddad I felt for her, but on the other I wanted to applaud the school for making her fail. The truth was, she hadn't practiced and didn't have the words for the song she was singing with her. I h

Lest we forget

This year I have had severe back pain and gout; both left me literally crawling around the floor in abject agony. You may know what that is like. Or do you? Looking back, it's hard to remember just how painful those episodes were or even what it felt like. That's how it is for the bad stuff, but be honest we also do that with the good stuff too. We so easily forget. Psalm 103:2 says: "Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things he does for me". This week Phil gets married (he's our son) . So allow me these moments to remember some of the amazing times God has been there for him. In 1998 Phil joined a team of church planters in Wolverhampton that Ann and I were leadi
