Friday Night Extra 24.5.19 with guest Lisa Whymark.

Tonight I was joined by Lisa Whymark, ordinand and family worker at St. Peter’s church in Hutton. Lisa told us about her Christian journey that had begun when a neighbour took her to church when she was a child. Then she appreciated the community. When moving to Hutton and feeling she did not know anyone, she went to the church seeking community. Here her faith has grown with deepening involvement. She is bemused to find herself travelling to London one day a week for lectures as part of her training for the ordained ministry in the Church of England. She told us about some great activities happening at the church, many involving mums from the school. She also told us about the Daily Bread CafĂ©, where food is donated by some shops. More info on

We remembered the birthdays of Bob Dylan, Rosanne Cash and Guy Fletcher.
