I’m back from the Pilgrimage

Just to let you know that I’m back at work after a 7 day pilgrimage having seen a lot, learned a lot, prayed a lot…and of course laughed a lot!

So all those who ordered Ish products from our online shop during the past week will be receiving them very soon as I posted them off to you 1st class this morning.

Also another ‘Sting in the Tale’ concert date for your diary.

On Wednesday October 26th I will be doing the first concert in Chichester. It will be held in the very ancient Bishops Palace Kitchen and as it only seats 100, it will be an all ticket event. More details later.

For your information

Hi everyone.

Thank you all those who have rejoined my mailing list. Now my mailing will be sent to you via ‘MailChimp’ which will be far better. If you know of others who may like to be kept in touch with what I am up to, please ask them to join up.

I promise not to bombard my mailing list with constant mailings just news I think you may be interested in.

I will be away from my office from Thursday May 12-Thursday May 19thon a Pilgrimage. During this time you will of course still be able to order products and receive downloads from our online shop but I won’t be answering e mails or posting products.

Finally, on Sunday May 29th after 37 years Ishmael United will be uniting to play a 35 minute set at ‘The Big Church Day Out’ in Sussex. This should great fun, I hope some of you will be able to be there to cheer us old boys on!



‘Sting’ tour dates available

Just to let you know that I am back on the road again and will be performing 2 more ‘Sting in the Tale’ concerts in July and September.

On Friday July 29th I will be in Cardiff so if anyone fancies a concert on either Thursday 28th or Saturday 30th and you live somewhere roughly between Chichester and Cardiff, I would love to be with you and remember numbers are not important and it will only cost the Church some travelling expenses to put it on.

Likewise Saturday September the 10 / 11th am, when I am in Shrewsbury, I can fit in a concert anywhere roughly between Chichester and Shrewsbury on Friday 9th or Sunday 11th pm.

If you are interested, please e mail me at ishmael@ishmael.org.uk

Updated mailing list.

Because I have had the original mailing list since I first started the website, I felt I must update it as many of those original addresses are no longer valid!

If you would like to keep up with my current news (and I promise not to bombard you) please can you rejoin.

I have also changed to mailchimp which is a much more secure site.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
