I'm writing this sitting in my room at college having just finished the last day of a three year course to help my development in my ministry, having become a local minister 14 years after leaving college!
It has been a good course learning as much from fellow students as from the tutors and I have made some good friends, some of whom I will be able to keep in touch with the aid of facebook!
Coming to London every month gives me a good opportunity to visit friends and family, and several have asked if this is the end of my visits. But no, I will continue to study and have been officially given permission to continue coming to college each month to spend time in the library and archives to study the life of Mrs Spurgeon.
She was an amazing woman - 'behind every great man there is an even greater woman'!
