Abbeyskate, Malmesbury

About 600 children and young people took to the ramps in Malmesbury Abbey Skate 2017 during the last February half-term. It was an awesome community effort and a massive thanks goes to all those who helped to make MAS2017 such a huge success! From the small army of people who prepared meals to feed all the volunteers, to the smiling faces on the welcome team, to the impeccably efficient booking desk, to the behind the scene sound crew, to the generous sponsors, to our B&B volunteers, to our straw bale carriers and wood-layers, to our first aiders, to our cafe connoisseurs, to our prayer team, to our tuck-shop assistants, to Phil and Christian Skaters UK, and SO much much more… Thank you!

A journey begins with one step and (with some trepidation) I start my sabbatical.
The hope?
To rest, have time out to reflect on calling,  ministry and what it might look like in the future - personally and within the context of Ruthin....
So, a prayer:
Loving God, in my journeying and my resting, in my listening and or reflecting please guide me and lead me afresh to the light of your truth, Jesus.
For I ask in His name...

Walthamstow - seen in passing....

How about this for a "mobile library"?
Households volunteer to host a "book house" which is stocked with books. People passing can borrow / add / replace a book and so the mini library continues....
What a wonderfully simple public service...!

Celebration tree

A great way to enable people to consider, with thanks, all that God is doing....
On the picture of a tree mark on its branches the "flowers" to be celebrated (Choir, worship band, Messy Church, etc. etc) and on each "petal" the names of people involved with that activity.
You can also place "flowers" (without petals) to note things you would like God's Spirit to help bring to fruition (eg Deepening Prayer Life, Meditation,  Young People's study of Christianity etc. etc)
I wonder what the 'Ruthin Town Churches' and the "Dyffryn Clwyd M A" would look like.....?
