I took the two morning services at St Phillips Joppa. Its a brilliant church with a very warm and welcoming congregation, so welcoming that I took a service for the first time there only a few weeks ago and they invited me back almost immediately which isn’t what usually happens to me these days!
I don’t do too many services these day, mainly “homers” like this one. My reason for leaving the parish was to give me more time with the family at weekends and so filling up every Sunday with pulpit supply would defeat the purpose! I enjoy leading worship. It probably what I miss most about not being in the parish but I also enjoy the fact that I don't have to do it every Sunday these days...
