Finally ...

Hurrah! A new post!

And just when you thought this blog was going in the same direction as all the others ...

Well, we've just had our 3rd round of The Plant's meetings, with some more new faces and some that are now becoming more regular. With a student based church, it's inevitable that attendance figures and the people are going to vary from week to week, especially in the first term as people explore different places before settling down somewhere. Hopefully some people will choose us! As I said, we have had a few people who have come for 2 or more weeks now so it seems as though we're beginning to build a regular congregation ... which is nice.

This evening we had an amazing Hotpot with sausages, bacon, carrots, onion, potatoes and topped with Mozarella cheese (Yum yum) before moving on to continue our series looking at Hebrews 2:1-4 and having a really good discussion afterwards! We only had one song but it was a really good one - Stuart Townend's "How deep the Father's love for us" ... a beautiful song to play and sing with some absolutely fantastic words and a great reminder of God's great gift of salvation!

No major news other than that, really ... I was a bit ill over the weekend, but nothing too much. I did finally get round to producing a chorus and thus a provisionally final version of a re-write of "These are the days of Elijah" (a Christian praise song). It's something I'd been working on for a while and had some help from my friend Matthew, but I'd always stumbled when it came to the chorus; partly cos the original chorus is pretty good and it still fitted with the new verses we'd written. However, I wanted to have a stab at writing a new chorus, to try and tie the whole thing up neatly; it's quite satisfying to finish a long-standing personal project like that!

Now I just need to turn my attention to some of my original material and get it down on manuscript before it gets published on Crossring.com (the Christian Community site) as part of the brand new Music section which is all very exciting! For more info - keep your eyes on www.crossring.com ... although I'll probably have more stuff on it here as well.

Once more I say, and most solemnly;

Badgers to you all.
