It’s been a little while since I blogged about anything, let alone about how the job is going, so I thought I would take this opportunity to give a quick update.
There’s a number of things in the pipeline that I’m really quite excited about. Firstly, a few of us are coming together to take part in MK Pride on the 11th August by providing a tent where people can swing by to relax or reflect and perhaps explore faith. One of the reasons that I’m really proud to be a part of this is that I believe that God’s love is available to everyone and this may be a way to demonstrate that.
I’m also quite excited about the potential of making some creative spaces in the City Centre; one of the ideas we’ve had is to make a ‘living advent calendar’ whereby each day of advent there will be a new thing to discover, all themed around the advent period.
With the YMCA, we hope to set up a new basketball club for residents and I’m currently looking round at venues. And there’s also the possibility of getting involved in the YMCA World Challenge.
While all this is in the planning stages it’s also been really good to make new friends across the city – we really feel like we’re settling into Milton Keynes and are looking forward to moving into our own house sometime soon.
