I had planned a months sabbatical which was due to begin on the 1st March, but due to unforeseen circumstances it resulted in me taking five days focused time out rather than a month.

Following our last meeting in July I met with the West Midlands Branch for a barbecue and a chance to encourage everyone and meet new members. On Sunday morning I preached at Kingshurst Evangelical Church, Birmingham – our venue for the National Executive meetings, it was good to thank the fellowship for supporting us and I had the privilege of praying with a man convicted about the Lordship of Christ in his life, a great transformation.

Following our last Executive meeting I focused on finalising the National Rally, preparing sermons, equipment, people etc. I was very excited about what God has for us and I wasn’t disappointed.

On Saturday 2nd April Sandy and I went to the Wirral as guests of Mark Mitchell and his family, they invited me to share challenge from God’s Word and the ministry of CMA at a Men’s Breakfast at a local hotel. Mark hosts the breakfast, which was so well attended (usually 300) they had to turn away those who hadn’t pre booked.

Our last Executive / Trustees meeting was held at the World Horizon’s Mission base in Llanelli, they very kindly invite us to have a weekend away to focus on issues that need more time than our monthly meeting allow. It also gives an opportunity to catch up with the WH team and their mission across the world. As I was still recuperating from my surgery Sandy drove me down to Llanelli – my hero!

On the 29th November I organized another coach trip to the NEC International Motorcycle Show Birmingham taking 55 local bikers, it is a great way to connect with familiar faces, build relationships, meet exhibitors/stall holders and any CMA members who attend.
29 November 2015
Following our last Executive meeting I attended the CMA UK Ladies Conference held at The Hayes Christian Conference Centre, Swanick, Derbyshire. I preached during their final meeting on God calling us to be Light in the darkness therefore we need to go into the dark places to reach the lost they won’t come to us. The weekend was very effective and well attended including CMA members from Holland and Belgium.

Following our last meeting in June I completed my sermon for the European Motorcyclists For Christ Rally in Finland, I was asked to send it in advance so that a translation could be projected as I preach in August.
20 March 2015
Following our November Executive meeting I preached at Kings Road Chapel, Rushall, Walsall and in the evening at Kingshurst Evangelical Church (the church that hosts our Exec meetings) I also gave a presentation of the ministry of CMA at both churches. Kingshurst Church requested a few Biker Bibles to reach out to local bikers. I have obtained a Russian Biker Bible for a contact via Kings Road Chapel.

Following our last meeting I gave some training to the North East Branch based on Safeguarding – Children and Vulnerable Adults. It was an interactive seminar covering aspects of ‘Who is vulnerable?’, ‘Occasions when CMA members may come in contact with young people?’, ‘Identifying different kinds of abuse’, ‘What do I do if I suspect abuse has taken place?’. It was well received and has stimulated conversations since. I would like to take this to other branches in the months to come.
