The cakes of Wem.

Last night at Wem we said goodbye to Dave Christmas with a few cakes!!. Dave has been part of the congregation at Wem for 25 years and in that time he has served faithfully in many ministries. He is off to live in Worcester with his wife to be Heather. We will miss you Dave.

Chester's last walk in Wem.

Chester and I are both sad this morning. This is our last walk on the farmland near to our house in Wem. This has been a real place of stillness for me and many prayers have gone up from these fields. I will miss them :-(

Another final thank you before I go to all the team involved in HBC this year . I have to say it was one of the best if not the best . The worship this morning in church was wonderful . Thank you to all involved . The Lord bless you all :-)

Day 5 and the end of an era :-(

Today was a happy/sad day . I rejoiced in the work of HBC which as ever was brilliant but it was all tinged with sadness as Phil and I brought to an end what is probably going to be our last Holiday Bible Club together ... I will really miss working with the little fella ;-)

Sounds like HBC is a coming .....

The memory verse for this year at Bible on the beach is .....

Jesus said " Do not be afraid from now on I will make you fishers of men ". So they left their boats and followed him ... Luke 5 ;10& 11 ...

Monday is all about following the leader :-)
