Back in September

The blog is in stasis until September as it’s the holiday season.
August is a mixture of work and holiday for me.
Two places I’d love to bump into you:
I’ll be in the ‘Clean as Possible Comedy Show’ (briefly) in Edinburgh on 17th and 18th of August ….. and I’ll be at Soul Survivor for the day on the 23rd August.
Have a blessed time
Catch up with you soon

Youthworker of the Year Award 2015

Various catergories, have a look. Great opportunity to bless and say Thank you to someone who is making a difference to Young People
All the info is HERE
Here’s a challenge for youth groups that could be fun: ‘Dress up your youth leader as a superhero and post the image on Facebook or Twitter. There will be a prize for the winner, but will also get the word out about the Awards and how we want to celebrate the superheroes of youth work’

New Diocesan Church House

This is the new Diocesan Church House and where my desk will be from Next year (probably around March). There is not enough space for meetings and for training in our current building, or in fact even to properly fit everyone. This new building offers a much greater opportunity for hospitality to visitors, for more creative working … and for hosting more conversation and training. All very exciting.
Mission will be up on the third floor, so same height BUT no longer in a kind of converted loft. There is in fact a huge loft space above us at the new building with possible room for a Table Tennis table for a lunch time league. (This is my idea and has not been discussed or sanctioned … YET!)
So we set sail to this new land hoping to acquire a Bishop and a Director of Mission along the way.
