Wivelsfield Green Cafe Church

Just wanted to tell you that I had a brilliant time at Wivelsfield Green Cafe Church this morning.

The village hall was nicely full of all ages who joined in enthusiastically.

I really enjoyed singing 2 songs that I have not sung for a very long time ‘Lord we’ve come to worship you’ and ‘Jehovah Jireh’.

That is the great thing about having a back catalogue of well over 400 songs to choose from…I can keep refreshing the set….with ah my old songs! I hope that makes sense!

Red Hill Christian Centre Praise Party

Fresh back from a wonderful praise party held in a marquee at the Red Hill Christian Centre. It was organised by a lovely lady pastor called Linz.

Although again like Frinton on sea last week it was baking hot under canvas, the children joined in enthusiastically for 75 minutes.

We stayed just down the road in Stratford upon Avon which must be one of my favourite places to visit and that has nothing to do with the bard…it’s just a lovely town.

Great to be back doing praise parties again!

A birthday gift to you!

As August 10th is a sort of a memorable day for me maybe I should offer a present to all you guys.
Ok, so anyone who orders any CD from our online shop from today until August 31st, I will either send you another different download CD or post you a different hardcopy CD for free.

It will be my choice as to which CD I will send you but I will try and send you a CD that has similar age song content as the one you ordered.

Please note offer ends on August 31st

The Children’s Ministry continues!

Sang and spoke at another Kid’s Club this morning, this time in Brighton.

Really great time and I was asked to sing ‘Wolfy Wolfy’ twice as it seemed to be one of the children’s and leaders favourite songs!

Still a few more Summer Kid’s Clubs to go before this summer ends!

But I have been thinking.

Here I am clocking in at 67 in a few days time, although because of my 3 years of Chemo the Docs say my actual body age is 5 years older…WHAT…72!

And yet here I am still singing and speaking to children…the white haired OAP Grandpa Glorie!

I’ll be honest with you, over the past few years I have not been asked to do hardly any Children’s ministry and I had resolved myself to the fact that I was now too old for this and that my days ministering to children were now over. That is why I’ve concentrated ministering far more to adults recently, which I also love doing.

Well, I must not grumble…I’ve had a good innings, over 36 years of Kids work so I can’t complain.

Then this year, in come the Kids Clubs bookings again and so now I’m back trying to remember my children’s songs and even harder trying to remember… and do the actions that go with them!

Although I do tend to get a tad more tired than I did 30 years ago, I still so love singing and speaking to children.

When I was resurrected from Leukaemia 8 or so years ago, I again repeated to God the prayer that I first prayed when I became a Christian, Lord whatever you want me to do, I will try to put all my energy into doing it!

So that’s it then.

As long as invitations keep coming in and the body and mind stay capable, I will carry on doing what I so enjoy doing…that is a variety of different events… including ministering to children!


Back from Frinton

And what a wonderful time I had!

The marquee was packed for the children’s praise party and although we were all sweltering in the heat, the action packed hour stayed very lively right until the very last song!

In the evening 150 came for the curry evening and afterwards I spoke and sang for about 45 minutes. What I said seemed to be really well received and I had some great conversations afterwards.

This is such a well organised annual event and all the organisers and people we met were so warm and friendly. It was a pleasure and an honour to have been invited to be a small part of it.
