As you may have seen the diggers have arrived in north Yate and the building of the new estate has begun. Well, so far there are the beginnings of a road and lots of containers. To reach out in everyday mission to the people of north Yate we have formed a small mission...

Sometimes you hear something and you think, that just can't be true. Today I was reliably informed that there was a Psychic pig on This Morning predicting the football results. It turns out it was true after all. A quick YouTube search and you find Phil interviewing th...

On the 1st of July I will be ordained as a priest in Bristol Cathedral, exactly one year to the date after being ordained deacon. Who knew that 24 years after the first 32 women were ordained on 12 March 1994 in Bristol Cathedral (including Reverend Sue Restall from St...

Last week I had two blasts from the past, one it rained on Easter Monday and two a classic book got the Hollywood treatment. So on Monday due to the rain we went to the pictures and saw A Wrinkle in Time. Not my first choice of film but I was sold on the idea it had 'b...

Back in 1997 I got a Tattoo in Birmingham. I’ve got a red celtic knot on my right shoulder. Back then hardly anyone had a tattoo, it was a bit edgy, which is why I had one done. When I started work there were only two of us with tattoos. Now everyone has tattoos much t...
