We know that some of you have already seen on the news that one of our team mates and friends, Gayle Williams, was shot dead this morning as she walked to work at the SERVE office. We want to let you know that we are all safe, so please do not worry for our safety. We ask for your prayers for Gayle's family in England and South Africa, and your prayers for everybody here as we deal with this loss.I've removed some detail and the names for their protection. For your prayers

We've been litter picking in Macclesfield for Hope08. Festival, service and funday tomorrow...no service in church - everyone at West Park. Then (this morning) on to the St Albans coffee morning to raise money for this years trip to Lourdes. Couple more pictures on my flickr pages.
God invites us to take a holiday [vacation], to stop being God for a while, and let him be God. God is inviting us to take a break, to play truant. We can stop doing all those important things we have to do in our capacity as God, and leave it to him to be God.
We are looking for an outgoing and adventurous person to come and join us in our close knit staff team. You should enjoy working with others and not be afraid of change.
