Adventures on the street…

I’ve spent a few hours on the streets of Peterborough with a trainee vicar on placement with me called Keri. She’s an incredibly gifted people person. We met together to reach out to all kinds of people, but we especially wanted to bring something of the good news to people who are Muslim. We both…

Sunday morning painting…

I love taking a Sunday morning a month and painting prayers for people. Over the last year I’ve done this once a month in Cambourne… it has been exhilarating. I’m often by my self but occasionally I’ve been joined by people from the church and I always meet people and give paintings. I’ve had a…

Sometimes it’s hard sharing the joys of Christmas…

Today we had a short time of outreach in the market in Peterborough. As a small team we had lunch together at the market with the desire to then reach out and bless the market stall holders. Overall the response was fairly negative. No one seemed to want fruit or sweets and were quite suspicious…

You’re invited to a Kings birthday party!

At The Light Project we love letting as many people as possible know the good news of Jesus. We believe everyone deserves to know that there really is a God who has made himself known to us through Jesus and that He loves us so much. Today we embarked on something a little different and…

Trees of change and hope

Favouritist time of the week! 

One of my team described Friday’s chaplaincy in the city centre of Peterborough as her favouritist time of the week!  It is mine too.  What a joy to serve people and show and tell the good news of Jesus. I really mean that. What a JOY!  Today I have listened to people and their heart…

Light on a wet and dreary day 

   It’s Sunday morning and I’m heading out onto the streets of Peterborough with some of my team. It’s wet and grey.  Despite the misery of the weather this is my favourite time to be church… Hanging out with the majority of people who don’t go to church. I love bringing life giving affirming words…

Sometimes the best plan is not to have a plan… 

Today was my most favourite Sunday to be at church… One Sunday a month I take a ‘Sunday out’ to be amongst people who wouldn’t usually go to church. This often means doing something creative on the streets but today it was chucking it down. Furthermore, I didn’t have a plan. Added to my lack of…
