I had a fantastic time in July 2014 co-leading a track at the LST Summer School with Geraldine (Latty) Luce.  We spent six sessions with a great group of guests, discussing how we could intentionally bring the themes, words and emotions of the Psalms into our contemporary times of gathered...

We had a blast leading the Presence venue at Spring Harvest, Skegness.  This is a smaller, more intimate space which lends itself to group discussion, creative worship and time just to be with God.  It was fab to go on a journey with the guests over the four nights.  We...

I've just been in the garden, where we have a tree of cooking cherries.  It was planted by the previous owners, and this year Sara put a net around it, so that the birds wouldn't be able to eat the ripening cherries like they did last year.  I did nothing...

It has been really exciting to see the emails flying between Richard Lyall and Sunil Chandy as they thrash out what they'll be doing at the Engage Worship Day 'Worship Tech' session (we recently changed the title a little, by the way).  They are so passionate about seeing how new, creative technologies can help release worship...
