Very interesting week coming up…

Wednesday I’m at St Peters Church in Martley doing a special rendering of my ‘When the road is rough and steep’ concert for their Lent event.
Thursday I’m doing a radio interview for Heart and Soul radio followed by a ‘Sting in the Tale’ testimony concert at Catshill Baptist Church in Bromsgrove.
Saturday I’m at St Andrews Church in Crawley along with Duggie Dug Dug doing a seminar and Praise Party for childrens leaders.
Then on Sunday morning I’m preaching in Chichester Cathedral on Luke 14 v 33 when Jesus said ‘Anyone who does not give up everything they have cannot be my disciple.
I love diversity and challenge and next week is certainly going to be that!
They say variety is the spice of life…well if it really is spicy…I’d rate this as a vindaloo of a week approaching!

South Wales…Here I come!

Just doing my final preparations before I visit South Wales tomorrow.

At 6.30pm on Saturday I will be at Lliswerry Baptist Church Newport Gwent NP19 0JF. Here I will be doing the ‘Scripture Song Concert’. Loads of songs! Loads of singing! And of course…loads of fun for all ages!

Approx 90 minutes long, admission free but an offering will be taken to help support my on going ministry.

Then on Sunday morning at 10.30am I will be at Alc Newport 124 Lower Dock St. Here I will be leading an all age celebration. There will be lots of singing and I will also be sharing a little bit about healing and praying for any who would like prayer.

At 6.00pm Sunday I will be at Gosen chapel 31 Bute St Treorchy Rhondda. Another all age celebration, again with plenty of singing but this time i’ll be giving testimony and sharing a bit on how to cope when the road gets rough and steep.

I do hope to see some of you ‘locals’ this weekend as it’s my first visit to Wales for years!

Can’t wait!
