Stories of Hope Continue!

We’re delighted at the response to our new lockdown project: Stories of Hope. The last two videos have been very well received and are being watched and shared all over the UK and indeed even the world. So Suzannah and I have made a commitment to producing a new video for each Sunday whilst the…

Sabbatical Break!

Weymouth Sea Life Centre

Over 70 people turned up and we even managed to put (almost) all of the original Upton Methodist Church band back together again (sorry George – we missed you!). Josh was back from Uni and Steve came back from Devon. It was great…

Welcome to the New-Look Website!

Welcome to the brand new website! I’ve been struggling with various software based solutions for years now but it was always such a bother to update stuff and add photos etc. I’ve finally made the move to WordPress and I’m hoping this is going to be a lot easier to maintain. That should mean that…
