Family Outreach Team

It seems to me that I have been in teams all of my life - first at school, then in numerous teams over the years at work and now in retirement too. I work with teams as a member of Poole Lions Club and also doing Visitor Welcome in London in the summer. At church I’m in the security team, the grass cutting team and so on, but perhaps the team which gives me most satisfaction is the Family Outreach Team, led, of course, by Karen.      See full story...

Good day, bad day!

On a good day, teamwork is something to behold! On a not so good day, it can look like this! We’ve all been there. Working together toward a shared vision can be exciting, creative and rewarding. And we’ve all been there. Working together toward a shared vision can be frustrating, discouraging and fruitless.      See full story...

Care, Compassion, Christ, Community, Children

As 2017 drew to a close there was one word on my mind, Community. It is not unusual to hear in the press these days the phrase ’Care in the Community’, but what does this really mean to most of us? Who are the Carers, who is being Cared for, what constitutes the Community, how do we Care with Compassion and where do our Children fit into all of this? Big questions. It is our Children that I will focus on here.      See full story...

An invisible army: Jackie, Tim, Keziah and Toby Spencer

It is estimated that there are around seven million Carers in the UK and they are often referred to as an 'invisible' army. They are on call for very long hours in their own homes and give dedicated service. Jackie, Tim and Keziah are long term Carers and have shared some of their experiences with Pivot.      See full story...

Transforming Young Kenyan Lives

The Karibuni Trust has a new name - Karibuni Children! After 22 years of wonderful achievement working with children from the poorest of the poor, this seems a much more appropriate name, and it all started with a young girl, Corinne Murphy, setting up a charity with her savings of £2.56!      See full story...

Making God relevant for children

What would you do if you were asked to teach a class of middle school children for 1 hour each week for 6 -7 weeks on the subject of Christian faith? This is what I was asked to teach at Broadstone Middle School as part of their University of Broadstone Curriculum. Some of the things on offer are in areas of sport, gardening, table tennis, circus skills, comic book art, and music making…etc. Some exciting and fun things to choose from for sure!      See full story...
