In January 2010 it felt like my life crumbled to pieces! Two years on and we really have been on a journey. The term 'journey' is overused by reality shows etc etc but it is the only way to describe what has happened to us. To cut a VERY long story short we have in the past year moved house, area and Church as a direct result of feeling that God was telling us that it was time for a fresh start. Time to have some space to heal and space to rest where home would be a pleasant place to refresh. God has led and blessed us. From a wide search area he led us to a town in Surrey called Horley. Throughout our move we have prayed 'Lord please lead us to the right Church' - we had a handful of things we were looking for in a new Church - somewhere that would take us as were, a grace Church, somewhere where we met with God, somewhere where noone knew us - thus having no expectations of what we would do or what we should be like - taking us at face value! We also wanted somewhere that be willing to let us 'just be' for a while - we knew that God had clearly been telling us that we needed time and space to heal. Pratically we also wanted somewhere local so we could walk if necessary and a hope that others from the Church would also be local! We found such a Church in Southlands www.southlands.org.uk
Since our move it feels like a fresh page and God is once again speaking to us. I hope in weeks and months to come to share a bit more about the journey of the last two years and to share our continuing journey of learning about God's grace!
