Anna and I are taking some time out this summer.
It's been a demanding two years and we're in a situation which could develop into serious exhaustion. So I felt we needed to take a long break this summer, away from responsibility and serving.
The elders at CCK have thoroughly endorsed this decision and are keen for us to have a good break and time away. So, from this last weekend, I'm laying down all my responsibilities at CCK for the next 10 weeks, and my involvement at Together On A Mission, Mobilise and Newday.
Through some amazing God circumstances, we're actually flying out of the UK to spend our time in a fantastic city with a superb Newfrontiers church. And I will be disappearing from the online world of twitter, Facebook, blogging and emails… !
It's been a fast paced three weeks since these decisions were made, with elder’s involvement. There are no sin issues or wrongdoing. I haven't been asked to step down or been disqualified and this is not a church discipline situation. It was my initiation and it has received the elders endorsement.
It's going to be strange not being involved at any of the conferences. However, we believe this is a priority.
