Wednesday night I will be at The Beacon Baptist Church in Kilmington Devon doing the Scripture Song concert starting 6.30. No tickets required just turn up. Admission Free with an offering.

Thursday night I will be at the Percival Institute in St Minver Cornwall doing an All Age Praise Party Concert starting at 6pm.

Then finally I will be returning to be with my friends at the Ebenezer Church in Bristol to do a Praise Party for the very young children from 6-7pm which is FREE followed by a Scripture Song Concert from 7.45-9.00pm which costs £5.00. 
Details and tickets now available from – www.ebe.org.uk/praiseparty and www.ebe.org.uk/ishmaelevening

Ascension Service

On Thursday I will be deaconing and doing a short talk at the Cathedral Ascension communion service.
Whilst I appreciate Christmas, Easter, Pentecost and dare I say even ‘All Hallows’? get higher profiles, I think that it is good to set a day aside to celebrate Christ’s Ascension as I believe it was a very important occasion.
Only trouble is whenever I think of Ascension day, for some strange reason Arnold Schwarzenegger seems to come to mind…can’t understand why!

Ish’s Cosy Concerts

My good buddy Noel Richards shared with me something that he does midweek and I thought wow, that would really be great for my ‘History of Ish’ testimony concert.
My main ministry of course will continue to be visiting Churches and doing my concerts with them but I do realise that some of your Churches feel they don’t want to, or are unable to arrange a concert in their building which is fair enough. However, how about YOU hosting a Cosy Concert for your neighbours, friends, fellow church people in YOUR LOUNGE!
I would insist that your lounge is big enough to comfortably seat at least 25 people…. and not sitting on each others laps!It would also need to be a detached property..as I will be making a little noise and it’s not really a good witness to upset those living in houses close by!
I would link your visit (the day before or after) with a Church concert that I have been invited to do.
It would of course a be very informal, great fun and gently evangelistic….cosy concert!
I would hasten to add that this concert is NOT a childrens event and will not be suitable for young children, it really is a chance for you to get your adult friends who are believers or seeking into your home for a fun yet challenging evening…and of course you won’t need months in advance to advertise it!
If you are interested please e mail me at ishmael@ishmael.org.uk and I will send you more info.
