• Goodbye Renault Espace

    Yesterday my Renault Espace finally died! After 10 years of reasonably faithful service and well over 120.000 miles of travelling together, lots of oil started leaking from the engine and the electrics packed up. If any of you are in the financial position to be able to help towards buying another car please do let me know, if not, I do value your prayers as a reliable car is very essential to fulfil the ministry that God have given me to do.

  • More nice comments from last Friday’s concert

    Just had 3 more encouraging comments from people who attended our ‘Sting in the Tale’ concert last Friday that I thought you might like to see. Eddie said ‘Just to say thank you so much for the concert at Westham. My grandaughter and her boyfriend came with me and we all found it enjoyable, challenging, moving. God bless as you go to Spring Harvest. Ivana said ‘Carol and I both enjoyed last night and she was very glad she came, just regretted she hadn’t brought her husband with her. I am sure you’ll be very successful at Spring Harvest as you used to be before.’ And Chris the vicar /…

  • Last nights ‘Sting in the Tale’ concert

    Brilliant night last night doing another ‘Sting in the Tale’ concert in Westham near Eastbourne. Brother Timbo joined me playing bass even though it was his birthday. It was so kind of Vicar Chris to walk up to the stage at the beginning with a lovely birthday cake with four sparklers sparkling whilst we all sang happy birthday. A great crowd came who really joined in well. Although I am struggling with a cough and cold and the voice is even more croaky than usual we tried some different songs. I personally felt that our acoustic version of ‘Crowd trouble’ did not work very well but that may have been…

  • Do you live anywhere near Pevensey?

    Time to put down the telecaster and pick up the ovation because tomorrow (Friday) brother Timbo and I will be doing a ‘Sting in the Tale’ concert at St Mary The Virgin Church (High Street, Westham, Pevensey) at 7.30pm. If you live anywhere near do come and join us as I can assure you it will be a great night out and you don’t need to buy tickets in advance, it’s just £5 on the door.

  • A very eventful and exciting couple of days!

    Well Ishmael United have finally emerged from spending 2 days in the rehearsal studio. Did we struggle a bit? Well just a little. Willsy struggled on keeping up with the rhythms on some of the manic tracks, Dave struggled to get his keyboard working, I struggled trying to play Am and Larry struggled to stay awake…but that is understandable as he is the most senior member of our old boys band! But…I have to say we were all amazed at how well the songs came together. Eight tracks are well and truly on their way to sounding great and all eight tracks only last 24 minutes total. My lips are…
