Warm greetings to all of you at Woosehill in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!
It has been a year since we came to Woosehill. It feels like a long time, which is a good indication of having settled well here. But at the same time, having to start ministry in lockdown conditions and restrictive regulations has been an experience with full of challenges and limitations.
We thank God, that despite all the limitations caused by the lockdown conditions, we as a church community, were able to continue to worship and carry on with our regular spiritual activities. Over the last few months, three working groups have been planning and implementing action plans in the areas of worship, community outreach and church family contacts. Now that the situation is slowly becoming more conducive to regular activities, we are looking forward to engaging ourselves fully in the mission and ministry of our church.
I come from a Methodist background and studied theology at Bangor University and trained for the ministry at Wesley College in Bristol. Most of my ministry has been in South Wales. We joined Woosehill in September of 2020 after serving Chipping Norton in Oxfordshire for eight years. My wife Nava is an accountant, currently working from home. Nava and I were born and met in Sri Lanka.
Here in Woosehill, we live in a lovely neighbourhood. We are keeping our manse open for all. Everyone is welcome for a chat or a prayer – with of course, a cup of coffee or tea!
With every blessing,
