Update #71 Summer 2019

The Sunniest Day This is being written a little over halfway through 2019 – aka the summer (or winter, if you’re reading this in the southern hemisphere!) The changing seasons remind us of God’s goodness; that he is with us, and in control, in all of life. The summer is typically a season of warmth and light, of sunshine […]

Update #70 John Feast

A few weeks ago we held our first ever John Feast.  For four days we saturated our souls in John’s Gospel and it was absolutely wonderful. Over the years we have consistently received lots of positive feedback after our normal Intensives.  These four or five-day courses combine Bible study, history, theology and applied spiritual formation and ministry related subjects. […]

Update #69 November 2018

Welcome to November! Now is officially the time for coats and heating… Peter and I want to thank you for praying for our preparation and hosting of the mini-Intensive a few weeks ago. We had a great time. As you can see in the photo, it was a much larger group than we’d normally have, […]

Update #68 Spring 2018

End of Winter We’re enjoying the increased daylight here in Chippenham! We hope you are too, wherever you are in the world. It was a full but encouraging term between Christmas and Easter, with lots of great opportunities for both Mike and Peter to preach, travel, and connect with Christians around the UK and Europe. We’re […]

Update #66 May 2017

Happy Easter! Don’t worry – I haven’t got the calendar wrong! I know Easter weekend was last month. It’s just that shouldn’t the impact and thrill of Easter survive more than a few weeks? If you’re anything like me though, Easter can become another day in the diary. A special day for sure, perhaps even […]

Update #65 March 2017

Against the Flow A few weeks ago in Trinity Chippenham, we started a new series in the book of Daniel. It’s been great and it’s felt so timely for me. I was challenged last Sunday about faith and how it’s defined in the 21st century West. This was one of Peter’s summary phrases: “Faith is […]

Lost in Wonder on the Radio

                  Recently Peter was invited to talk about ‘Lost in Wonder‘ on the radio – but not on just any old radio station! Moody Radio is based in Chicago and listened to by a million people throughout the USA each day. The wonderful Janet Parshall has chatted with Peter a few times on […]

Update #64 January 2017

Please Pray Since 2011, Cor Deo has been built on the goodness of God and the prayers of kind people like you. 2017 will be no different! We had much to be thankful to God for last year. The warmth of the Intensives in particular were a real highlight for me. Below there is information […]

Update #63 December 2016

In the midst of Carol-singing, present-wrapping and tree-decorating, December is typically a time to look back. We have lots to be grateful to God for over the past couple of months since the last Cor Deo email. I’d like to share three exciting encouragements with you so you can join us in thanking our good God…   […]
