Its time for a new chapter......

Since I wrote this post here I've been in 5 different places doing at least 3 different jobs.
 Its been an incredible season where God has taught me loads about trust and the joy which comes from throwing doors wide open and seeing where they lead on to.

I've met amazing people and been surprised by the christian communities who seem to pop up wherever he's taken me. I've also some phenomenal experiences working with teenagers at The Challenge and Lee Abbey.

In fact the only thing really missing in this past season was Roots, Church and my boyfriend.

So I am moving back to Sheffield where these things are in abundance! I'll be living in a new area which I honestly know very little about right now! I feel called to live there with a precious community of friends who go to my church. Learning how to practice a wider missional community with the people around us.

Shane Claibourne in his book 'The Irresistible Revolution' writes this;

'It is a beautiful thing when folks in poverty are no longer a missions project but become genuine friends and family with whom we laugh cry, dream and struggle.'

This is what's on my heart for the next season, its a massive change and adventure. I'm ready to commit to Sheffield in a new way, particularly as my parents have sold the family home so there will be no more skipping off to Sussex when it all gets a bit too real!
