• My Tot Fest adventure!

    Well, I guessed that there were going to be a few surprises on this gig…and there were! To start with I don’t think that I have ever done a gig in such a remote field! To get there I had to drive down a long dark (because of overhanging trees) single track road with very few passing spaces. It really was scary reversing when I came face to face with another vehicle. Then when I reached the field where people were camping (on quite a steep hill) I found myself skidding all over the place due to the rain that was falling. Then we met our organisers who were lovely…

  • Off to the Tot Fest

    Today I am driving up to a village called Edge which is near Stroud to take part in a Tot Fest, which is quite different to most of the events I get invited to. The organiser sent me the following. We run an event for unchurched families every year from Aug 26th-29th ( the bank holiday week end.) Is there any chance that you could join us to stomp about in mud on the Saturday pm or Sunday pm doing talks, songs, or family entertainment in a large marquee? Our lot are not into God in a big way but they do tend to show up when I do some…

  • Joss has so nearly completed the course!

    Our son Joss is getting very near to John Ogroats and the end of his journey having walked there from Lands End at his own expense. I will be going up to celebrate his ‘mission accomplished’ in a weeks time. Thank you so much to all of you who have sponsored him so that he can give to the wonderful work of the Snowdrop trust. He is now just a mere couple of hundred pounds short of the target set so please if you can afford it, can you give in the next few days to help reach the set target. Thank you Click on Read Joss’s story below to…

  • 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!
