About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Retired
Location Beckenham, London / Kent, United Kingdom
Introduction I live in the suburbs of London with my wife; both our 2 grown up children are recently married and now live nearby. My wife, daughter, son-in-law and I attend St George The Martyr Church, Shirley (http://www.stgeorgeschurch.co.uk/) where we help out the choir on special occasions and I chord bash a guitar for the parade services when slightly different music is used. Our son is a youth worker at a local non-denominational church so we are all involved in local churches. My wife and I sing in the snappily named Bromley Youth Music Trust Adult Choir. I love good music of all types (yes ā€“ I know that is subjective). The only way to keep a car on the road is for me to service it! Unfortunately chest conditions have stopped me running and keeping fit. I would describe myself as a radical evangelical who spends a lot of time trying to get my fellow Christians to THINK!!! Iā€™m dyslexic but my wonderful children have shown me up by going to Cambridge University. People tend to think of me as frivolous because I see the funny side of everything ā€“ even the most serious subjects. To me not to see the fun in life would be to deny the way God made me.
