Looking forward…

It’s been some time since I last blogged … in part because I’ve been working on and writing the content for our church plant website, which all being well will go live at some point mid-August.

Last week we completed on the house we have been in the process of buying in Slough over the course of the last couple of months or so. All being well, we will start living there from just before the start of the new school term, i.e. around the 5th or 6th September. In the … Continue reading
