Praying on Ice

One of the great things about living in Slough is that there is so much for families to do right on your doorstep. This morning we went to the ice rink … a five minute drive from our house. Lois loved it! Ketsia sat it out … ice skating ain’t her thing so she got … Continue reading

Rigas Maratons 2013!

Church planting is hard. Church planting from scratch (i.e. by moving to a new place without an initial team of 15 to 20 people)  is harder still. With a year of attempting the latter under my belt I feel I am entitled to say this. That said, I am glad that when I moved to … Continue reading

A Snapshot of Life in Slough

Saturday Through my part-time job I have been getting to know lots of different people who are involved in different charities, voluntary and community groups working across the town. One of these people is Adil who is involved in the Sudanese Community in the town. Last Saturday, Adil had invited me along to a fundraising event … Continue reading

So after submitting numerous applications, this week I had my third job interview. This week, as in both of my previous interviews, … Continue reading

While I was there, I took part on Sunday morning in the Rigas Maratons. This event consists of a 5km race, a 10km race, a half marathon and a full marathon. I competed in the 10km … Continue reading

Children and Church Planting!

Around a year ago, as we were in the process of weighing up the possibility of moving to Slough, Abbey Tebb (Abbey is married to Mark – together they are planting Freedom Church in Haringey, London) had a picture of our girls, where even though at that stage they were lagging behind Ruth and myself … Continue reading

A Spring in my Step!

In a few weeks time I will be taking part in the Rigas Maratons. This event consists of a 5km race, a 10km race, a half marathon and a full marathon. (Just so that it’s clear … you choose one of the distances, rather than do all 4! ) Due to knee injuries I have had in … Continue reading

Email Newsletter

We will be producing a short email newsletter once every 6 to 8 weeks or so, highlighting what to give thanks for and what to pray for in connection with what we believe God has called us as a family to here in Slough. If you would like to receive this email (and you have … Continue reading


Last weekend we held a bit of a housewarming party and invited some of our new neighbours round for a barbeque. In total, we’d invited 18 households and although those from 7 couldn’t make it for genuine reasons, we had a great time talking about all sorts of things (including church planting and Jesus) with some … Continue reading


This morning I took part in my first ever parkrun. Parkrun is a free weekly 5km timed run, which takes place in different locations around the country at 9am on Saturday mornings. My nearest parkrun event is held at Black Park Country Park, just north east of Slough on the main Uxbridge Road. You can … Continue reading
