Lancelot Vs The Flab Dragon!

Can you sponsor me to lose weight and raise money for our Fresh Expression of Church?

Can you help Sir Lancelot slay the flab dragon?!!!

I’m looking for people to sponsor me £1 per kilogram as I try to lose some fat and raise money for our Fresh Expression of Church.

In September we start meeting weekly, and will be sharing a meal together each month. Currently we are not receiving any regular funding for our group so we need your help to cover some of our running costs. All moneys will be used for running the group and will not go to any individuals.

Can you help us provide a sacred space for ragamuffins???

For more info about what we’re doing take a look at this written interview with CMS or listen to this recorded interview with UCB Christian Radio (2hrs 17mins into the show)!

Thanks for your interest and support, I’ll be posting updates on social media.
God bless,

Luke

I’d been chatting on and off with him all night, and by the time we got down to brass tacks it was the wee hours of the morning. It came down to this. Marty told me that he had read the Bible cover to cover several times last time he was in prison, and his next words were even more surprising.
