Bags of blessing and peace

Once a month on our student team day were joined by one of our part time trainees based in Lowestoft.

Our team bible study in the pub ended up with prayer for a guy who was off his face…

  Most Wednesday mornings we meet in the pub as a team. It's changed how we study the bible and how we seek to apply it.  Having people around us as we study has brought a dynamic to our application that we didn't have before when we gathered behind locked doors, hidden away.    Today one … Continue reading Our team bible study in the pub ended up with prayer for a guy who was off his face…

Today was no exception.  A day of being out in the city of Peterborough, first in the pub for the morning and secondly the afternoon on the streets.  It … Continue reading Out ‘there.’
