 Roy’s blog

Recently retired from parish ministry in the Church of England, my wife and I are settling into new routines- the gym, creating a garden, exploring a new area. There is continuity with the past from me- taking services, helping to run a Spiritual Direction course in the diocese, offering spiritual direction myself, both here in my diocese, and at the invitation of the Bishop of Cyprus and the Gulf, to Anglicans in the Archdeaconry of Cyprus. I am also a trustee of an orphanage in western Kenya; this necessitates at least one visit a year.
