Shuffle, Shakes, and Souls

Our home town of Colwyn Bay has become increasingly more on the forefront of our minds. We’ve recently started “Shuffle and Shake” a Youth for Christ project. We had our second test run a couple weeks back and had 6 new young lads come along from off the street. They were a little rough around […]

Minutes Matter

January can be an emotionally difficult month. Christmas and New years have passed, and every day seems to be cold, dark, and miserable! We need something to cheer us up!

Hurry Up and Wait…

It can be very frustrating getting stuck in traffic. Everything is moving smoothly and suddenly you’re stuck going nowhere fast. Sometimes ministry has phases like this.
