Sabbatical Trip


Whoever you are, wherever you're from, whatever you believe, whatever you've done

You are welcome




As part of my Sabbatical I will be visiting Israel with Oak Hall Christian Holidays.

This tour of the Holy Land will give me the chance to see many of the places where events in the Bible took place, giving me insight into the time and place of Jesus and many of the other people we get to know in the Bible.

A Visit to Israel

Published on Friday May 13, 2022

 As part of my Sabbatical I will be visiting Israel with Oak Hall Christian Holidays. This tour of the Holy Land will give me the chance to see many of the places where events in the Bible took place, giving me insight into the time and place of Jesus and many of the other people we get to know in the Bible.

I'm hoping that I'll be able to update this blog while I'm there, and will endeavour to do so each day with, not just an account of what I've been doing but photos as well! So, what this space for updates starting around June 8th.

This article is about married couples, but reflects the principles and attitude that all Christians should have when they come to church:

Why I don't always sit with my husband in church

Why Bother With Church?

Published on Saturday October 20, 2018

There once was a time in this country when everyone was expected to be at church regardless of whether they believed in God, Jesus and the Bible or not. Its much better today that the expectation is only on those who actually have a faith. Of course, the church has an open welcome for everyone, no matter who you are, where you're from, what you believe or what you've done (at least that's certainly true at WCF). But its no surprise that most non-believers can't see the point of church. What is surprising though is how many believers can't see the relevance of church for themselves.

Are they at fault? Is the Church at fault?

This Sunday afternoon, (21st Oct at 4.30pm) we'll be thinking about the question "Why bother with Church?" Its open to all whether your mind on the matter is open, closed, or somewhere in between.

Meanwhile, lets hear a few words from Milton Jones that may help to inform the subject:
