I just returned recently from a middle eastern country (sorry to make that sound so frightfully glamorous and mysterious - I can't tell you which one as it's not totally safe for the people there) after visiting church planting friends. My friends and I met on theology training as our (John and I) journey to church planting was unfolding at the same time as theirs. They have two young sons, as do we. We loved and invested in each other as we began plans to

I had a plan of how my life would be, I trained as a physiotherapist because I was going to go overseas and work with children in orphanages, the lost and forgotten ones, written off because of their disabilities. I was going to be surrounded by the slender arms of loving children who I’d fixed and mended, I was going to see the lame walk because of my skills and dedication. I would be fluent in at least two languages and send photos home

As a church Jubilee felt they had heard God say EAST EAST EAST (Part 1), meaning we should start a church in the East of Hull. Then John and I had felt God speak to us as a couple and say EAST EAST EAST (PART 2) to us, confirm we were to lead the church plant and take a team with us from Jubilee to do it. We now knew beyond all doubt that God had a plan for us and that it was separate

I've been meaning, for a while, to try to record our journey of planting River City Church. There are a number of reasons for this 1) so that we don't forget what an incredible journey we're on; 2) to remind ourselves it is Jesus' idea and not our own; 3) to list some of the ways that God speaks to and guides His people, and lastly 4) to encourage others to be bold in asking God what plans He has for you. Hope you enjoy reading!   Around two years

We had such an incredible final service at Jubilee on Sunday, I just wanted to share some of the amazing images our friend David took on his camera. They truly capture what wonderful family Jubilee is. Thank you for loving us and sending us out so well.

Romans 13:7 Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed. Ahead of our final Sunday at our current church we are going through the period of reflecting on the last ten years and how significant they have been. Personally, I wanted to celebrate the friends that have invested in my life over ten years. I wrote to a number of them to express

"I do not need safety as much as I need Jesus." This is fast becoming my 'mantra'. I find myself repeating this lyric from a Rend Collective song rather more often than I would like. For a long time I have lived a rather comfortable middle class existence. I have taken my safety and the safety of my family for granted. However, having moved to a more challenging neighbourhood I am having to remind myself that safety isn't as important as being obedient to Jesus. The first day

When you were in your twenties what did you hope your life would amount to? A flash apartment in the capital? Posh car? Award winning career? I did. But then, at the age of 20, I became a Christian and a lot of that changed. I still wanted all those things but something new began to grow in me, a nagging feeling that there was something greater to invest my life in than just career; money; stuff. Beginning to believe there was a God and an

Not only a great name for a blog but also my life's ambition. Having been a Christian for a long time I know that God has a plan for me. The bible tells me so in Jeremiah 29:11. But my life drastically changed when I learned to TRUST that this was true. I was a typical rebellious teen. Having grown up in a Christian home I had seen my parents grapple with their faith and get lots of things right and also a lot wrong.
