On this webpage you will find some of the topics he teaches, listen to some mp3 sermons, view some photos, read some poetry and, hopefully, be encouraged and blessed.
First, however, please read the latest newsletter.
Ministry update Sept 2016
Have just returned from 3 weeks in Wales where I had opportunity to minister into a number of lives. It was a good time but I have returned with an ongoing cough needing antibiotics - and prayer.
I have been remiss in not keeping this web page up-to-date. I must sit down when my cold is better and write a eport on my ministry this past summer. In the meantime please read the latest Words of Encouragement from my friend Bill in OZ.

Quote of the month: (see Quotable quotes page - renewed June 2015)
Remember, those who follow Him afar off can still keep their eyes on Jesus but those who go one step ahead of Him, lose all sight of Him and walk in their own shadows!
That You should love me as You do and be the God Thou art, is darkness to my intellect but sunshine to my soul.
The kingdom of God is not going to advance by our churches becoming filled with men, but by men in our churches becoming filled with God.
God will have no strength used in His battles but the strength which He Himself imparts. Spurgeon
