The G& S night was attended by Mum and me! so that was a flop!

Next year it's in Tonbridge so no excuses!

I see from blogs that several others have arrived in Dunfermline or Stirling too.If you are staying in Edinburgh watch out! there are roadworks near the forthroadbridge which are slowing it up even more!

Let's pray for a Happy, and Blessed time at the Assembly!

I am sure the Chapel folk will enjoy Allan taking the service on Sunday.

Also I know the Scottish folk will give us a wonderful Assembly to remember and charge us afresh for the year to come with God's Spirit,Love and Hope.Keep us in your prayers as we celebrate the 40th year of the Congregational Federation

I am speaking to the ladies circle at Litlington today ,i hope and pray that our time together will be full of Blessings and lead to us working together more as churches.
Whereas we are showing signs of growth they are sadly literally dying out, so we need to see what we can do to bring new folk in,before it's too late.
Pray for the Spirit to move in that place and in the people of the village.
Looking forward to working with the new Area worker David,he is coming to see the Chapel and talk over what he can help us with on Monday..............good things are happening!
I have the joy of listening to the piano tuner this afternoon,using his skill ,shame my playing doesn't match it!
Finally had my haircut so i look less like Ken Dodd,what a relief!
Working on the AGM report...............crikey what a lot has happened in the first 9 months of my Ministry here.
WE have refurbished the building and there are signs of growth in the fellowship both in spirituality and in numbers.
Looking forward to this continuing in the next 9 months!and beyond.
