Our latest update

Spring Greetings from Terry and Fran


Welcome to our website. Our website gives regular updates on life here for us in St Leonards on Sea 

We guess it is a bit early to get too excited about the fact that the winter is nearly over for here on the South Coast of England we are enjoying a very pleasant temperatures moving into the high teens. We were so pleased to receive several replies to our Christmas letter that went out to everybody on our contact list. Quite a number of folk we have got to know over the past 50 years.

My mother, now 101, is still living in the nursing home at the top of our road and we together with my sister visit her several times a week. We are enjoying increasing opportunity with the church under the leadership of David & Caroline Lockwood and have an encouraging role in Pastoral care as well as many preaching opportunities. This together with speaking invitations in local churches and leading a local house group has kept us involved in the life and ministry of the Lord. We are also getting more invites to visit some of the fellowship churches and folk who were at one time in the church at Eltham.

Doreen Cooke is still with us and although she is 93, severely visionary impaired and has walking difficulties, she is doing well. We realise she would find it unpractical being left alone at night so when we do have days away Irene her friend from Sidcup & Terry’s sister Sue are always very happy to stay and be around the home.

Our three boys are still scattered around the globe. Although we did all meet Christmas 2017.  Andrew, Rebecca, Oliver & Sienna are in Helsinki. Andrew is Head of IT Release Management for a Nordic Bank. Rebecca is still working in translation & professional photography. Philip, Michelle, Abigail (+Eva 2 ) Kezia, Jake & Ethan are in Perth Australia. Both Philip & Michelle have been to college this year. Philip studying theology and Michelle, Counselling. Philip has taken up a more travelling ministry and had a amazing time in Kenya. John, Janna, Chloe, Esther & Benjamin are in South East London. John & Janna still leads the church at Eltham and is passionate about reaching the community. The Café “Fresh Ground” started last year provides a lot of activities for reaching people with the good news of Jesus.

We enjoyed a visit from Abigail and Eva from the 8th to the 22nd January this year and look forward to spending time with Philip & Michelle, Kezia & Ben (her boyfriend) in June & July both here in the UK and in France. Both Andrew & Rebecca and family and John & Janna & family plan to be with us all in Normandy July 18th to the 25th.

We have decided to do some breaks away this year around our birthdays. We travel to Shipton - on - Stour for 4 days on the 27th February 2019 for Frances birthday and to the South of France on the 18th June 2019 for 10 days subject to being able to get across the channel. We also have several visitors booked to visit us here in our home.

We would love to hear from you, see you, in our or your places, so please contact us.  Much love Terry & FranWelcome to our website. Our website gives regular updates on life here for us in St Leonards on Sea
