For your info

As it is that time of year when many of you are planning your Church diaries and some are e mailing me asking what I am still able to do…(there is a wicked rumour going round that I am getting older (but personally, I havn’t noticed it) I thought I would make it clear to all what I available to do throughout this coming year….and what I can’t do.


  • ‘Sting in the Tale’

A fun evangelistic concert which includes a bit of my life story and lots         of ‘sing-a-long story songs. More suitable for adults.


  • ‘An evening of stories & songs with Ishmael.’

The follow up concert to the ‘Sting’ concert with different songs (I have selected some of my favourites) and different interesting and fun stories taken from 47 years of travelling ministry. This will be premiered at Spring Harvest on April 11th.


  • All age services.

I still love getting the whole family of the Church together for an hour to worship, learn, and have a bit of fun as we do so!


  • Family Praise Parties.

I began doing these for children and families in 1982 and still love doing them just as much today!


  • Preaching, seminars, and training days.

Believe it or not but I’ve learned a lot over these many years by getting some things right and yep, getting some things wrong!


I really enjoy preaching anywhere and at anytime but also people seemed to have appreciated 2 special seminars that I have done recently.


a)‘When the road is rough and steep’ a time when I personally share how to cope in very difficult times.


  1. b) ‘Children. Today’s Church tomorrows leaders’ where I share what I have learned rom my many years ministering to children.


  • Anything else you think I may be able to do ie after dinner talks etc.



What I can’t do


  • Dance for an hour like Michael Flatley
  • Sing like Pavarottian
  • Play my guitar like Eric Clapton

Surprise surprise!


Please drop me an e mail at if you want more info on any of the above…and I don’t mean on the things I can’t do!
