This week Roger, Mary, Annie, Paul, Carole and Sarah are at Willersley Castle, a Christian Guild Hotel at Cromford near Matlock Bath in Derbyshire. This is a music week with a difference. As usual there will be worship, Bible teaching and learning a musical - David - but for this week the teaching will be focused on music in worship. There are a good number of guests in the hotel. Paul has over 30 in his choir, and Annie is training up a little orchestra ready for the final performance on Friday night.
Helen isn't on team for Willersley - she just got back from a weekend at the Bath and West Showground near Shepton Mallet. This showground has been the home of first New Wine, and then Soul Survivor for the summer. Once Soul Survivor week C finished and the 12000 teenagers went home, they were replaced by 6000 20s and 30s for the Momentum week. It was a wonderful time of worship, teaching and lots of time letting the Holy Spirit come. Time and time again it was clear that the more you wait, the more God does. On the final evening the plan went completely out of the window as God moved among the delegates.
Back in the office the work goes on - Tim has been working at the sales, although we are in our usual August quiet patch. Nicky has been away on holiday to Belgium but has returned to lots of emails! Helen is working on advertising the Michael Card concert, and trying to get word out so that the last 3 places for the Israel trip are filled.
And this morning, Helen's sister Deb had her second baby - IT'S A BOY!!!!!
