August to September 2014 Update
Welcome to our website dated 1st August 2014

Terry & Frans update August to September 2014

We left Gatwick for Toronto on the 5th June to spend 10 days with Walt & Wennie Robbins who lead the Stouffville Christian Fellowship North East of Toronto. As it was Pentecost weekend Terry was able to take up the subject of the coming of the Holy Spirit and it was thrilling to see one visitor who had not been to church since he went with his grandmother as a small boy. We spent some great times with Walt & Wennie visiting the lakes.

Monday the 9th June will always stand out in our memories not only that it is Terrys birthday but for the day that we heard that our second oldest grand-daughter in Perth had been involved in a serious car accident and was in a coma in intensive care. As the first week unfolded we heard much more of the accident. Another driver had hit her car on the passenger side with excessive speed and she had received serious head injuries, damaged lungs, torn liver and 11 fractures to her spine, pelvis and sacrum. Amazingly a Fire Officer was first on the scene and was able to give Kezia oxygen and make her comfortable while the ambulance arrived. Undoubtedly he was certainly able to save her life. Many prayed over the following weeks and we were all relieved when after 8 days she regained consciousness and was able to communicate although at the first it was uncertain that she had not more damage to her brain. It was touch and go in the early days but we had that certainty that all would be well.

It is now 8 weeks since the event and Kezia has began to walk unaided, a couple of weeks ago and been discharged from hospital under the care of two persons who visit her home every day. Frances plans to visit in September for a month while Michelle travels to the UK to celebrate her mum and dads 50th wedding anniversary and her dads 70th birthday. Kezia will hopefully be able to go for walks during that time.
We are still on course to move although we had expected to move out of our home early August having agreed an offer nearly three months ago. However today, 1st August, our buyer arranged for a full building survey to be undertaken. Unfortunately our first purchase in St Leonards  on  Sea was withdrawn from sale after a couple of months so our new property is only a few weeks in the pipeline. The seller is keen to complete by the end of this month.

We have a number of Sundays booked out in August and September and it will be interesting to see how things unfold if we move out of number 4 without the completion of the new house but we are confident in the timing and planning of the Lord.
We shall update this news again in early October.

We continue to appreciate your prayerful and practical support.

Much love Terry & Fran

The Watson seniors are on the move. After living in Eltham Green for nearly 40 years we have accepted an offer on our home and plan to move to St Leonards-on-Sea sometime over the summer. For many years now we have had a conviction in our hearts of a responsibility of care for Doreen Cooke who joined the church 1972 and became one of the family. As a single lady and now registered as partially sighted she has been unable to maintain her own home although she is still very active in church life. Some 3 years ago we shared with her that we would like to find property that would allow her to sell up and live next door to us to enable her to keep her independence but also that we would be able to help maintain the practical areas of her home and garden while she continued to enjoy all the opportunities of church life. Although we looked around in 2011 we came to the conclusion that it was not the right time and that we needed a specific area to move to or a clear direction from the Lord. As this wasnt forthcoming we put the whole project on hold.

In March 2012 my mother fell down her stairs and broke her neck in three places and due to the hospital not recognising this injury did not take the necessary care which resulted in her becoming paralysed. After moving her into a nursing home most of her body recovered its use but left her unable to do anything for herself except drink from a beaker with her left hand. Her right hand did not recover. As we have visited it seemed more and more important to us that she needed more care than she currently receives to include occupational and physiotherapy which is not provided. This has a big impact on her quality of life. Our prayerful thoughts led us to invite her to live with us. As both my brother and sister live in Rye we did not think it appropriate that we move her to London but find a place in their area. We have seen a house in St LeonardsonSea that would be practically ideal for both my mother, a carer, Doreen and ourselves so put our house on the market. This house would provide a self-contained flat for Doreen who is well able to manage her personal needs. We do need the Lord to find our sellers a new home in the area as soon as possible. As we have promised our buyer that we would move on completion of the sale we would not look forward to having nowhere to live.

We shall continue to visit Eltham whenever the opportunity arises and no doubt will see many visitors in our new home. We are in Harrogate, Yorkshire at the moment and will return home via Warrington on Monday. On the 5th June we travel to Toronto for 10 days and have a number of weekend preaching visits until the end of July.

We continue to appreciate your prayerful and practical support.

We have both now safely returned from Australia and are gradually recovering from jet lag. The weather was beautiful Frances being there a month enjoyed temperatures up in the top thirties while Terry visiting for the last 10 days of the trip had to be content with the mid twenties but still managed to get a tan It was a really special time with the family as well as others we had come to know in the church where Philip is part of the leadership. Terry was able to speak on the last Sunday morning. The last few days of March were taken up with visits to Worthing and Salisbury. For some time now Terry has been a trustee of the "Chisomo Trust" which currently overseas the UK support base for Martin & Marian Williams who are working along side two church groups in Malawi. There have been a number of changes recently and now Terry is chairman of the trust and will be sharing more about this in the days to come. Details of this work can be viewed by logging on to www.chisomtrust.org.

Another important change is that we have decided to relocate to the St Leonards-on-Sea area so that we can provide a home for Terry's mother who two years ago fell down her stairs and suffered a broken neck. She is currently bed-bound in a nursing home in this new area and our desire is to provide a home for her so that we can provide much more than the practical care she receives at the moment. This week we put our house on the market and our sale will go live in a couple of days on the internet. You will be able to search www.rightmove.co.uk for full details and view some great photographs. We have already seen the perfect property (pictured above) and are trusting the Lord for a speedy conclusion to our decision.

On the 10th April we travel to Zimbabwe with John & Martha Shaw for a two week Bible Course programme at the Ameva Bible College followed by a weeks pastors conference returning on the 6th May. During the month of May we have visits from Walt & Wennie Robbins in Canada until the 10th and Sandy & Beth Robertson in Florida from the 24th until the 29th. We continue to have travelling engagements until the end of the month finishing up in York and Leeds.

We continue to be blessed by the Lords leading and thank you again for your very generous support and prayers. Much love Terry & Fran


updated 3rd February 2014

We have really enjoyed the month of January. For some of our time we were standing in for Jim & Margaret Bailey while they were away in Australia visiting Philip & Michelle and the family. Jim & Margaret are involved in a number of activities in church life. The two we supported were the Mid-Day Life Group on a Thursday where we led a series of studies in Bible Doctrines. We first went through this series in 1983 so it was good to refresh ourselves again on the fundamentals of our faith. On each Friday it was our privilege to look after "Time Out" a group of mainly older folk who come to enjoy each others company, drink tea and coffee and enjoy a short service where we sing some traditional hymns and share a short message. The highlight of our time was the yearly Christmas dinner in mid January. (See picture above with Dolly having fun)

We have continued to visit Terry's mother in St Leonards-on-Sea we usually stay in her cottage on a Tuesday night but sadly a couple of weeks ago there was a fire in the lounge that has rendered it uninhabitable for the moment so we have been staying at the Lodge in Winchelsea. We have enjoyed a number of opportunities to speak in Eltham and elsewhere and shall be travelling to the West Country and Scotland between now and the 25th February when Frances leaves for Perth Australia for a month. Terry follows on the 13th March for 10 days. We shall update you again in April. We continue to thank you for your prayerful and practical support. Much love Terry & Frances

We have now begun, what is working out to be, a very busy travelling first 6 months. Already we have filled a lot in the calender between now and the end of June and details of all our travels can be seen on our itinerary page. We have left some spaces which we look forward to filling in due course.

We have had a very good Christmas and New Year start. The highlights were our meeting in Eltham the weekend before Christmas when we saw over 30 visitors join us in our Christmas services to hear a very powerful gospel message. John & Janna had started the first Missional Community in their home in September and as a result 5 Russian families joined with us as a result. Another highlight was the gathering of some of the elders of the churches we have been meeting with for lunch once a month for some years in Worthing. The group has now formulated a network called Missionlifegrace and you can see details on their website www.missionlifegrace.net. This will include a conference later in the year.

In these next few months we shall be flying off to Perth Australia, Zimbabwe and Canada so we will appreciate your prayerful support. Thank you for your love and care. Terry & Fran

Christmas greetings to all our family & friends.

This year has held many exciting moments and challenging times for us both. We thank the Lord for His goodness to our family and for all the contact we have had with a number of churches in the UK and overseas. We both hit the Big 70 and enjoyed our celebrations. In February Frances held a murder mystery evening with close friends & family. The theme was based on a Poirot film set in the 1920s. We had fun dressing up and the actors setting the scene were very professional. In June Terry had an open day where everyone was invited to pop in anytime as the day of his birthday was on a Sunday. We started with the morning meeting, lunch together and for the rest of the day enjoyed meeting friends and family as they joined us for a while. The blessing of this was two-fold, to spend time with those we see more regularly and others we have not seen for many years. One couple came from the Honor Oak Baptist Church where Frances was saved and baptised. Terry joined the Sunday School at 6 years old and we began a relationship as teenagers and subsequently married in 1966. This contact led us to visit the church one Sunday where we met friends who are now in their late 80s.
Richard & Yinka a couple who were in their 20s while in membership with us in Eltham also joined us in our celebrations. They left to assist an African Church in South East London and now lead a very lively congregation of 100 just 15 minutes walk from us. It was a real privilege to speak at their church one Sunday in November. Great memories of our visits to Africa!

There were many more at both these occasions who we were thrilled to see again. We were both given a gift for a specific holiday break, Frances chose Remagen, on the Rhine, in Germany. The five day trip was so refreshing. Transport was trains and boats (no cars or planes), the weather and scenery was amazing, and to be led by a tour guide was very relaxing. Terrys choice was a lazy trip to the sunny coast of North Greece. We hired a car so that we could explore the area and made a special trip to Thessaloniki, learning more about early church history and Pauls journeys. We made friends with a young couple who caught octopus and invited us for a meal. It was delicious! Thank you to those who made this possible.

An added bonus this year has been visits from family abroad. Our eldest grand-daughters from Perth were here for our birthdays. Abigail in February and Kezia in June. Andrew came over from Finland for both. Michelle was over in the summer for a family wedding. In March we took a trip to Paris with Abigail to show her the sights. We had sunshine most of the weekend and returned to snow in Kent. For Abigail that was exciting! In June we took Kezia and Chloe (Johns eldest) to Finland to see their cousins.
We remain part of the Clifton Community Church in Worthing where we still have an ongoing active role. We have been thrilled to see a move of God there, bringing in new folk and fresh challenges. With Mum Watson still in a nursing home at St Leonards -on-Sea, near Hastings, we seek to visit each week, so have cut down the length of trips away where we can. This has worked out quite well and we have still been able to travel to a number of church situations as well as being pastorally involved with individuals up and down the UK. We remain based at the church in Eltham and living at no 4 Eltham Green. At Eltham Green Community Church Tim Cross has joined the eldership and with Daniel Bull now takes some of the load from John who has begun the first Missional Community in the local area. Earlier in the year we were invited to share with the Passion for God young people Frances speaking to the ladies. This work is now developing into the missionlifegrace network and we look forward to seeing this expand into the future. Our Nissan Micra has faithfully kept running and there is now nearly 140,000 miles on the clock. Next year we shall be spending a little more time overseas and have already arranged vists to Australia, Zimbabwe and Canada.

Andrew & Rebecca, Philip & Michelle, & John & Janna have all updated their family news on our website which can be viewed on www.terryandfran.info this will keep you in touch with our own and family news during the year. From January 1st 2014 we shall be changing our email addresses. Frances will be fran@terryandfran.info and Terry terry@terryandfran.info if you are emailing us both please include both in the send to box. We have started our Christmas festivities already with a brief visit to Helsinki and enjoyed a Finnish Christmas meal. Have a great Christmas and a very blessed New Year.

With very much love.
Terry & Fran

The picture is of Thessonaliki in Greece

Our last update at the beginning of September left you, we trust, enjoying all the news of the celebrations around our 70th birthdays Frances in February and Terrys in June. We have had numerous invitations for lunch or evening meals with those who either were not able to be with us on our special days or just wanted to bless us further.

As a gift for Terrys birthday friends and family gave him a gift which he used to purchase a holiday in North Greece not too far away from Thessonaliki. The temperatures were a pleasant 38 degrees some days and apart from one day of rain it was wall to wall sunshine. The hire of a car gave us the opportunity to drive around the area and visit the historic city of Thessonaliki that was one of the stopping places on Pauls journeys as we read in Acts 17.

The 12 days were spent relaxing, reading and enjoying the warmth. One day one of our neighbours in the hotel invited us to join them in an evening meal of Octopus they had caught and cooked. It was very nice.

In August it was decided that we should paint the outside of our house on which, over the past year, we have been making repairs. It is a detached Victorian Villa built in 1840 which the previous owners had decided to paint all the brick work. This needs constant repainting at least every 10 years. Realizing this would be a mammoth task we have put it on the top of our list of things to do in October. Hopefully we shall finish it by the end of the month with the help of Daniel Bull who has put a number of days in with us.

Our plans for November are to return to two days a week in Rye & St Leonards-on-Sea visiting Terrys mother who is still bedridden after breaking her neck 18 months ago. During these next three months we have a number of preaching engagements in this country which you can view on our itinerary as well as other activities.

We shall update you all again nearer to Christmas.

Many thanks for your love and care. Terry & Frances

Updated July 9th 2013

We have well and truly entered into the summer with temperatures creeping towards the 30's centigrade. What a change some hot weather makes. We continue to enjoy quite a lot of travelling and have a number of extra overseas trips planned now until the end of September which have resulted from us both reaching our 70th birthdays. On the 9th June quite a number of folk joined Terry's celebration day. As it was a Sunday folk who were not normally part of the church fellowship, and were free to do so, were invited to join us in our morning worship and stay over for a "Bring & Share" lunch and the others popped in and out during the afternoon. The oldest connection was a lady called Barbara who joined the Honor Oak Baptist Church when she was 10. I would have been 12 at the time and part of a youth group which consisted of 8 girls and myself. Only a couple of months ago we met up with another one of those teenagers who we had not seen for 50 years. Doesn't time fly! Some people who had joined with us over the years were able to come. Dick & Hilary Hayes, Fred & Joyce Wenlock, Hugh & Marion Osgood and many others represented a number of seasons in our church leadership.

As a result of these birthdays the church gave cash towards some overseas holidays. For Frances we are travelling on Monday 15th July to Remagen on the Rhine Valley in Germany for 4 days travelling by train & boat to various destinations and then later on in September to Greece for a 12 days sunshine holiday. Most weekends we are visiting various churches and fellowships while continuing to visit my mother on Wednesdays. Where we are can be seen on our itinerary page. We will give an update report at the beginning of October. Many thanks for your love and care. Terry & Frances


Updated 1st May 2013

It’s wonderful to see the sunshine again after so many months of cold. We have been in London the last week or so and been able to catch up mostly with our paperwork. We returned on the 28th April from a month away starting with a trip to Canada to spend Easter with Walt & Wennie Robbins in Stouffville. It was good to meet the church again and to be able to share the message of the Cross & Resurrection. Walt & Wennie are doing a fantastic job among folk who in their late teens early 20’s were drug addicts. They are a small church but have a number of folk who faithfully come. We moved from Canada to Cloverley Hall in Shropshire for a 4 day conference with Les Wheeldon & Larry Hill. The programme stated the speakers to be themselves plus others so I was privileged to have opportunity to speak. Mary Seaton & Fineke Janssen were also able to share in the second morning session. The whole conference was very encouraging. We continued travelling North to Lanark in Scotland and enjoyed 10 days with the folk there speaking on Sundays and visiting in the week. Peter & Liz Smith are doing a fantastic job fostering children whose lives have been transformed by their input. As you may know Terry’s mother broke her neck last year and we have been visiting her in St Leonards on Sea most weeks on a Tuesday & Wednesday staying overnight in at her cottage in Rye. She is still unable to do anything for herself except drink from her beaker so we do pray for more mobility for her. Up to last year she was totally independent. She is 95. The local health authorities have provided her with an electric wheelchair which we trust she will learn to drive with her good hand. So far she is learning well but reluctant to make the move from her bed to the chair as it involves a hoist and finds it very uncomfortable. We also are able to see Terry’s brother and sister on a regular basis who both live in Rye.

This week we have Kezia our second oldest grand-daughter from Perth Australia visiting for three months so we are not planning too much away from London and nothing overseas except a trip with her and Chloe our London based grand-daughter to visit Andrew & Rebecca and family in Helsinki in June. On the 9th June we shall be inviting all our friends to join with us as we celebrate Terry's 70th birthday look out for information. Frances was given a gift for a train journey for her 70th so we have organised a trip down the Rhine in July. We also plan quite a bit of house painting and gardening over the summer period and will catch up on some of our visiting locally.

Thank you so much for your love & care. Terry & Fran


Updated 12th March 2013

We have just finished the busiest period of birthdays for the Watson family in any month of the year. Terry's mother was 95 on the 1st while Abigail became 21 on the same day. Other's enjoying birthdays were Andrew, John, Benjamin, Sienna and Frances who became 70th on the 27th. To celebrate this amazing event friends and family gathered at the church for a Agatha Christie Murder Mystery "Death on the Nile2 performed by John and his cast of players. Over 75 came from various parts of the country and overseas.

Last week we visited Paris with Abigail for three days and just managed to return to Ebbsfleet before Eurostar cancelled all trains travelling between Paris & London. Our diary for the next couple of months is beginning to fill up with visits planned to Bracknell next weekend, A Conference "Passion for God" in Northampton and Worthing the following week before we fly to Stouffville in Canada for Easter. On our return we join folk at the Cloverley Conference in Shropshire before spending 10 days in Lanark, Scotland with Peter & Liz Smith. At the end of April we shall be joined by Kezia who will be visiting London for three months. Kezia will fly in with Michelle who will be around for a month visiting her Mum & Dad and attending a wedding. We thank you for your continuing prayerful and practical support. We shall have a link to Frances birthday photos as soon as we have sorted the out. Much love Terry & Fran


updated 5th January 2013

In our devotions some weeks ago we sensed that the Lord would be opening up a new door of opportunity for us in the ministry and we quietly wait for it to reveal itself. We had a great Christmas spending Christmas day lunch with Terry's mother in St Leonards - on - Sea and the evening with John & Janna & the family. The rest of Christmas we spent on our own enjoying the rest. On the 3rd January some of the churches we have close links with here in the South of England met for a three day retreat in Worthing. Each leader who attended was give an hour to share something relevant and lead a discussion on the subject. This proved very beneficial. The climax of the time was on Thursday evening when the meeting was opened up to other leaders from the various churches. We are hoping more of the churches we network with will join us for our regular meetings over lunch or breakfast during the year. During January & February we shall continue to preach in churches in the UK over the weekends and visit Mum during the week At present we have postponed any visits overseas. We are always very grateful for your prayerful and practical support and look forward to seeing more of you in 2013. Much love Terry & Fran

Updated 3rd December 2012

On Wednesday 5th December we are returning to Gran Canaria and apart from a few days enjoying the sun we will be spending some time with the church in their Christmas Outreach. When we return back to Eltham on the 12th December we shall only have two weeks before Christmas. On Christmas day we shall join Terry's mother for Christmas dinner at the nursing home she is in recovering from breaking her neck back in March. She continues to make very slow progress but we are looking forward to trialing an electric wheelchair on the 18th December which we hope will give her more mobility. We continue to be very thankful for your prayerful and practical support and wish you a very happy Christmas and blessed New Year. Much love Terry & Fran.

This Little Child
Who would have thought that long ago so very far away
A little child would be born and in a manger lay
And who would have thought this little CHILD was born the KING of kings
The son of just a carpenter but for whom the Angels sing

And who would have thought that as HE grew and with other children play
This CHILD with whom they laughed and sang would die for them someday
And who would have thought this little CHILD would make the blind man see
Feed the hunger, make rich the poor and set the sinner free

Oh who would have thought this little CHILD was who the prophets said
Would take away the sins of man and rise up from the dead

Many years have come and gone yet this world remains the same
Empires have been built and fallen only time has made a change
Nation against nation brother against brother
Men so filled with hatred killing one another

And over half the world is starving while our banner of decency is torn
Debating over disarmament killing children before their born
And fools who march to win the right to justify their sin
Oh every nation that has fallen has fallen from within

Yet in the midst of this darkness there is a Hope, a Light that burns
This little CHILD, the KING of kings someday will return

Andrew & Sienna (6) have just arrived to spend 5 days with us so as to be able to visit Terry's mother in St Leonards-on Sea nursing home tomorrow. Mum continues to make very slow progress in her recovery after breaking her neck. With her left hand she is now able to drink herself using a special cup. The physiotherapist was quite encouraged with her increasing mobility but did say that he does not expect her to be able to stand again. We continue to pray for better results. Yesterday we took Walt & Wennie Robbins on to Epsom after a busy 5 days here with us. We were able to visit Battle Abbey, Rye and Eltham Palace during our visiting around the area. His ministry on Sunday was very well received and fitted in well with our new series on prophesy. This weekend we travel to Exeter and will spend 10 days in the Devon area finishing up at the Rora Christian Fellowship before returning to Eltham to take one of the series on prophecy. On the first weekend in November we will be joining with the Victoria Park Christian Fellowship at Quinta in Shropshire for there away weekend. We continue to be very thankful for your prayerful and practical support. Much love Terry & Fran.


Update dated 14th September 2012

Having now enjoyed the summer break we are settling down to another season of opportunity to visit churches in this country. Nan Watson continues her 24/7 care in the Bryther Court Nursing Home at St Leonard's - on - Sea and we have committed ourselves, as much as possible, to visit Tuesdays and Wednesday each week. She is making some progress in her mobility but a long way from being able to leave her bed. Mum has been admitted to hospital twice in the last couple of weeks due to infections resulting in her lack of mobility. On the 17th September we celebrate our 46th wedding anniversary. During October Walt & Wennie Robbins are visiting from Canada and Andrew will be here with Sienna for a few days. For the rest our programme we have updated our itinerary which you can view on our itinerary page. We continue to be very thankful for your prayerful and practical support. Much love Terry & Fran.


updated 1st July 2012

June has been a very challenging month for the Watson family. 3 months ago Terry's mother fell backwards down her cottage stairs and broke three bones in her neck causing her to loose the use of her arms & legs. Although she is regaining some use to one arm she is bedridden and we need to know God's wisdom in what we do as a family for her future. At the moment she is being cared for in a Care Home in St Leonards-on-Sea. A couple of weeks ago her grand-daughter died suddenly of a stroke while playing bowls. She leaves her partner and 18 year old daughter. This next month we shall be flying to Finland to spend some time with Andrew & Rebecca and family. In the second week we shall be looking after the grand-children while mum & dad spend 5 days in Rome. We return home via Estonia and travel to Rora for a week on New Life Radio. We appreciate your continuing support and trust you all have a great Summer. Much love Terry & Fran

updated 8th February 2012

Last Sunday (6th February) we were privileged to be speaking at the Charlton & Blackheath Fellowship where Mike Leader is involved in the leadership. Mike was with us some 30 years ago and was a tremendous blessing as well as a very talented pianist and organist. Our only sadness was that he left us to pioneer a new church in Blackheath. Unfortunately that night there was a heavy snow storm which did deplete the numbers and about a third were missing. The week before in Eltham we had set aside 5 days to pray and fast and are now working out the implications of a fresh vision for the future of the church. This Friday (10th) we travel to the Wirral for a week as a base to visit a number of folk in the Liverpool and Manchester area and will be speaking at City Church in Kensington, Liverpool on the first Sunday and Emmaus Christian Fellowship, in Warrington on the second. On Saturday 11th we have arranged an Ameva/BTCP Training Day at City Church for all those interested in lecturing at the Ameva Bible College in Zimbabwe and have invited David Reddaway of BTCP to lead the sessions. I am planning to include videos and pictures on the work there so watch this space. When we return back on the 20th we enter a season of birthdays. John will be 40 and other February birthdays include Benjamin (5) Frances and Andrew. We continue to be very grateful for all your kind support both prayerful & practical. Much love Terry & Fran


updated 30th December 2011

We have come to the end of a very busy Christmas program and have enjoyed having our extended family joining with us. Andrew & Rebecca, Oliver & Sienna return to Helsinki on Saturday while Philip & Michelle will be around for a further 2 weeks.

Tomorrow (30th December) we drive to Gorton, Manchester for 3 days speaking at a New Years Conference followed quite quickly to a three day retreat in Worthing attended by a number of brethren from some of the Southern Churches in which we have good fellowship.

We would like to wish you all a very happy New Year

With very much love Terry & Fran




updated 10th November 2011

One of the scriptures that the Lord confirmed to us some years ago regarding our current ministry we have both re-read in our morning devotions while we have been away in Perth over the past 6 weeks. "He went from year to year on a circuit to Bethel, Gilgal & Mizpah but he always returned to Ramah for his home was there" 1 Samuel 7v16-17. These scriptures, referring to Samuel, confirm the Lord's heart to us that we should continue to travel and share both in word and in fellowship with those who are in leadership in various churches around the world.

Perth, this year, was a time for family, friends (Tony & Julia, Andrew & Jill) who were once with us in Eltham as well as for deepening our existing relationships with the Huntingdale Christian Church who are going through change under a wider eldership of whom Philip is now part. One particular meeting stands out when the young adults took the whole morning, leading the worship, a remarkable testimony from a young lady and excellent ministry from Kieron, Peter & Beth's oldest son plus, of course, the two opportunities that Terry had to speak. Philip & Michelle, Kezia, Jake & Ethan will be travelling to the UK on the 20th December for a month leaving Kezia with us until the 20th March. Kezia has now finished High School and plans some time out before going to University.

These next 3 Sundays see us travel to some of the churches we have been able to visit on a more regular basis and enjoy more consistent fellowship with those who lead. This weekend we are in Worthing, at the Clifton Community Church, on Saturday to celebrate Rob Parkes 50th birthday and on Sunday to preach the next message in a new series on the book of Nehemiah. The following Sunday with Paul & Chris Cross at River Church, St Mary Cray, and the last Sunday of November with the New Covenant Church in Bracknell. We do so appreciate your continuing love & support. Much love Terry & Fran

We are now nearing the end of a very enjoyable visit to Perth Australia where we have been staying with Philip & Michelle and family. Yesterday we joined 250,000 other Perth residents to see the Queen visit and wave to her as she passed by on Riverside Drive. Pictures of that on Frances' Facebook. Today we joined with the Huntingdale Christian Church where the young adults led the service and we listened to an amazing testimony from Emily, and the ministry of the word spoken by Kieran one of Peter & Beth's sons. This week we shall continue to take opportunity to visit some members of the church here as well as those we knew in Eltham. Next Sunday, our last, Terry has been invited to speak at the church. We arrive back home in Eltham on Wednesday 9th November. One of our difficult times here was to hear that Terry's mum was taken into hospital after a slight stoke, she is 94 in February, but is home again and improving. We thank you for your support both prayerfully and practically. Much love Terry & Fran

The picture is of our new home in Thornlie, Perth, Australia

We have safely arrived to spend 6 weeks with Philip & Michelle and the family who have now moved to Thornlie a southern area of Perth, Australia. This morning (Sunday) we joined them in the Huntingdale Christian Church and will spend some time with the folk here as well as visit a number of friends we have in and around this beautiful city. Last night we were taken to Freemantle for their famous fish & chips. (Facebook viewers will be able to see us on their site.) As this new house is much smaller than their previous residences we have a caravan on the front lawn so it could be said that we are "nearly on the street" although it is very comfortable. Next Sunday Terry will have the privilege of ministering in the church. The children, that is Kezia, Jake & Ethan are on school holidays so tomorrow we are off to the Science Museum with Ethan and a friend, while Kezia studies hard for her final exams and Jake builds himself a skateboard ramp. Tuesday we will be entertaining Tony & Julia for coffee at our place and others things will unfold as the days go by. We appreciate your prayerful and practical support. Much love Terry & Frances

The picture is of Martin & Marian Williams who are working with local churches.

We are now back in Eltham for three weeks and shall enjoy meeting the church folk at Eltham when Terry speaks on Sunday. We have been in Malawi visiting a number of families in and around the Blantyre area. We returned home yesterday via Johannesburg. The flight from Harare arrived in Blantyre on Wednesday 24th August three and a half hours late which is not bad for Air Malawi who have a reputation for not flying from time to time. Air Zimbabwe have not been flying at all as the pilots have been on strike for at least three months awaiting payment for a backlog of salary. We stayed with Bev Cullender at the IMP base, once a member here in Eltham and visited Martin & Marian Williams who have recently moved into a small one bedroomed house and spent an evening with Miles & Liz Thomas who are now working in Malawi six months each year with two groups of churches Rock Springs Baptist Churches and New Life Churches. The first Sunday we travelled with Martin & Marian Williams to a village near Bvumbwe where Terry spoke to a combined group of New Life village churches on what they call a big Sunday.

During the two weeks of our Malawian stay we had a number of projects including a lot of computer work for those whose computer skills are worse than ours. Wednesday the second week we traveled to Limbe for two days to see Phil & Fiona Harvey and from Sunday through to Tuesday were back here at the IMP base for meetings with Matt & Rebecca Armstrong and a series of sessions on 'The Marriage Course' with contacts from the churches in which they are involved. We found the Malawian marriage customs as challenging as they found the principles that God lays down in scripture as a basis for our married lives together.

Our time in Zimbabwe was again very demanding sharing a series of lectures on the subject of Bible Doctrine 8 hours a day for 10 days looking at 10 of the major doctrines with a group of 21 students. The Sundays were taken up with preaching at the Chegutu Vineyard Church and Chegutu Fellowship where John Valentine is the leader.

We shall be flying off again to Perth Australia on the 28th September. Thank you for your continuing support both prayerfully and practically.

Much love. Terry & Frances

We have just completed a very profitable series of Radio programmes on New Life Radio broadcasting from Rora House in Liverton, Devon. The theme of our series of 8 was Discovering more in our everyday lives Many of our interviews and stories looked at deepening our experience in God and covered a variety of subjects as well as music. The first part of the programme included a devotional reading and requests for prayer. Highlights of the interviews were Phil Holdsworth of Christians against Poverty, Andrea Minichello Williams of Christian Concern and our weekend speaker Jay Fallon of Teen Challenge. We return back to Eltham on Monday 1st August to prepare for our trip to Zimbabwe & Malawi on Thursday 4th. Our time at Ameva Bible College will include a two week series of lectures on Biblical Doctrine that Terry will be sharing with Peter Gray as well as general support on the farm . On the 24th August we move on to Blantyre to visit Matt & Rebecca working with International Mission Project, Phil & Fiona Harvey Headmaster of a school in Limbe, Miles & Liz Thomas and Martin & Marian Williams working with Chisomo Trust.

We continue to thank you for your love and support both prayerfully and practically. Terry & Fran Watson

updated 23rd June 2011

We have just returned from an amazing 10 days in Gran Canaria ministering at a retreat hosted by the International Evangelistic English Church based in Playa del Ingles and Puerto Rico. The first weekend we spoke at the Playa del Ingles church which consists of around 15 local members and sometimes up to 40 tourists each week who like us enjoy the blue skies and 28 degree sunshine. For both weekends our hosts had arranged a beautiful apartment overlooking the harbour in Peurto Rico. The retreat, which ran from Monday to Thursday, was in the mountains of Santa Brigida in a very old house overseen by Nuns who prepared our two cooked meals a day. The house built in typical Spanish style was set around a central courtyard. Each guest room had a small single bed, a table and sink. The programme started at 8am for prayer and there were meetings throughout the morning, an excursion in the afternoon, a meeting before dinner and an informal worship time before we retired to bed around 10pm. We had 7 sessions during the retreat and took up the subject of "Reviewing the Blueprint" looking at aspects of the life of the early church in the Acts of the Apostles. Some of those who gathered were pastors on some of the other islands. The second weekend we ministered in the Puerto Rico church. This weekend we are in Worthing but for most of July we are around in Eltham until we fly to Zimbabwe on the 4th August. We thank you for your continuing prayerful and practical support. Love Terry & Frances

updated 30th May 2011

We have just returned from a week in The Wirral, Liverpool and Manchester. We were able to speak at The Longcroft on the first Sunday morning where the Lord is increasing them and they were looking for spare chairs to accommodate visitors. Mark & Helen Jones who we know from the Exeter Fellowship are now resident in the house and providing hospitality for those who visit. We had a great time with them and visited a number of folk in the North East. A friend of Frances who was a student nurse with her in the early 60's, Cleo from Worthing who is now at Edge Hill University in Ormskirk, Peter & Shelagh Gray, Dick & Hilary Hayes, Gary and Cheryl Hayes as well as a number of folk from the Longcroft Fellowship. On Friday we called in to see Chris French who three weeks ago discovered he had stomach cancer and has just had surgery to remove 80% please pray for his continued recovery. This last weekend we were in Gorton, Manchester where Keith & Christine Kelly lead the church there and wereable to speak on the Sunday morning. Now we are at home we are making preparation for meetings in Gran Canaria where we shall be speaking to two local churches and addressing a 4 day retreat. We have been given the choice of our own theme and 7 meetings. Thank you for your continuing prayer and support. Much love Terry & Fran

We have just finished an amazing time with two churches here in Scotland. The first at the Adonai Bible Church in Govan, Glasgow where we were involved in dedicating their new building to the Lord. The picture shows Pastor Tony Oyiboke who has been leading the church for 7 years. The second conference was at the Lanark Community Church where we shared over the Easter weekend on the theme of "He is risen" These meetings were attended by folk from other churches in the area. We are now spending time in and around the area before we travel down to Norfolk on Friday for our weekend with Andrew & Jean Holland. This time we have been privileged to stay at John & Martha's flat in Lanark while they have been in Zimbabwe which we really enjoyed. We trust that you all had a great Easter break.

The picture is of our house for sale by Foxtons Estate Agents

We have for some time considered whether we should join forces with Doreen Cooke and sell both our homes to buy two next door to each other. This would mean that we could provide ongoing care and maintenance while we continue to travel around this country and overseas. Doreen would be free to be involved with a local church.

It seems that this year the Lord continues to open up new opportunities for us to minister. Last week we filled in the first week in December for a visit to Tenerife. The Church in Gran Canaria has invited us to take a series of 7 meetings with them at their annual retreat in June. We are free to choose the subject. On the 15th April we shall be joining with the Adonai Bible Church 43 Burleigh Street, Govan, Glasgow for a three day conference with a theme of "May your eyes be open towards this house"(2chron 6:20). The following weekend we shall be preaching in Lanark at their Easter Conference. Frances will be speaking at some of these meetings in Gran Canaria and Lanark. The end of the month we will be supporting Andrew & Jean Holland in Docking Norfolk where they have invited Helen Shipero to a Gospel Outreach event before spending some time in Cornwall and Devon in early to mid May. All details of these visits are on our itinerary page. We do so appreciate your continuing support and prayer. Much love, Terry & Fran


Updated 8th February 2011

We have now returned from a very relaxing and refreshing holiday in Puerto Rico, Gran Canaria, Spain. The weather was excellent (20+) except for a few days of rain and one storm. We both enjoyed our projects. Frances sorting out over 4000 photos on her computer and Terry reading a couple of books as well as starting to read through the ESV study bible, his bible reading programme for this year. As we were situated on top of a mountain we enjoyed the walk down to the beach or to the town and the challenge of walking back up. There were some stairs - someone had counted them - 655. We have been invited back in June to speak at the retreat of the two International churches that meet on the South of the Island.

This last weekend we were in Worthing at the Clifton Community Church and next weekend will be joining with Andrew & Jean Holland in Norfolk. They have begun meetings in their home in Great Docking. On the 21st February we fly to Helsinki to spend a few days with Andrew & Rebecca, celebrate Sienna's 5th birth before travelling to Tallinn. Here we will meet up with a young Russian woman who has moved from Iceland before spending the weekend with Simon & Heloise Brereton in Vohma. We thank you so much for your prayerful and practical support.


updated 8th January 2011

On Wednesday 12th January we shall be flying from Gatwick to Las Palmas Gran Canaria for a three week holiday. Frances is taking her laptop so that she can review and reorganise her photos and do quite a bit reading. Terry plans also to do some reading. This year he has planned to read through the ESV study bible having really enjoyed the NIV study bible that he began in 2009.

This is our first holiday for some years and will be taken up with a lot of walking and relaxing. Our itinerant programme starts on the 6th February with a visit to Clifton Community Church. All our other visiting plans will be found on our itinerary page. Thank you for your continuing prayer and practical support. Much love Terry & Fran


update 15th December 2010

2010 has been a very interesting and challenging year for us both. We are always learning new things in many of the situations we find ourselves involved in and thank God for His guidance and help. We have seen Him open opportunities for us in both churches and on a personal level. We have had the joy of knowing His hand on our lives.

We started the year in the snows of Finland and Estonia and ended the year in the snows of Scotland. However, to make up for the cold we were able to spend two months in the warmth of Australia with Philip and Michelle and the Grandchildren, friends in Perth and a weekend with Doug and Melissa in Melbourne. We spent time with the Huntingdale church where Philip and Michelle are now attending and have moved house to be able to be more involved. Kezia, Jake and Ethan are loving the change and being near their friends. Abigail is finding her feet at the moment with a new set of friends and a good job opportunity coming up in January. She was with us for five months, enjoyed being with family and was able to fit in some work experience in a large new five star hotel opposite the houses of parliament.

The ash cloud delayed our visit with Peter and Shelagh Gray to Zimbabwe in April but Frances was pleased as Peter mended the shower that had been playing up for years, dug over the vegetable patch and screeded the floor in Johns house which pushed on the work we are doing for him. Terry and Peter were able to finish their lectures with the students and we all enjoyed the Pastors Conference and the Graduation day where Terry became the acting Bishop! Peter and Sue Moffat were with us as well and at the end of our time we all, with John and Celia were able to take a few days out in Victoria Falls.

Other trips abroad were with Sandy and Beth Robertson in Florida where we had a week of meetings and visiting and also in Canada with Walt and Wennie Robbins and the church in Stouffville. The lovely thing is with these visits we always feel so much part of the people there and are privileged to be able to do these trips. It enlarges us and gives insight in the way the Lord is moving and blessing in so many places. He is faithful.

Back home during the latter half of the year we have been able to spend some time in Eltham, particularly in the pastoral work, which we enjoy immensely. We are encouraged with all we see happening in the church. It runs with and without us which we find very healthy and which makes us free to travel around. The church now has a strong standing in the area and looking forward to two new families joining to help with the work in January.

We continue to have input in the Southern churches and this year particularly we enjoyed our time in Epsom. It was good to catch up and share about the work in Ameva. The latter has taken us to Auchenheath (Scotland), Manchester and the local St Saviours Anglican church. Also in Scotland we enjoyed being with the Lanark church over Easter, staying with Peter and Liz Smith and their delightful foster children Dylan and Jamielee.

Down South again we spent time with Tom and Naomi Patkai and their lovely family and extended family as well. Worthing is always in our hearts and we are still Trustees. It has been great seeing the church enlarge and for us to feel very much part of the work there. We were pleased to be able to visit Bracknell again and River Church (Orpington) and Welling Evangelical, each of which we continue to have strong connections.

About the rest of our family. Terrys mum is nearly 93 and in good health and very able to look after herself, although Terrys brother lives a few doors away in case she needs help. Andrew and Rebecca , Oliver and Sienna visited in October for nine days. We always stay with them for a few days when we go over to Estonia to Simon and Heloise as it is only a boat trip away. Oliver started a new school this year as he has done so well academically. He has settled down well. Sienna is in day care and getting more confident meeting people now. Andrew has been working on their new home in Helsinki making a two bed roomed apartment into three bedrooms. He is doing well with his job with Nokia. Rebecca also works from home in translation work.

John and Janna are very busy in Eltham. Some of you may have seen the BBC programme Cowboy Trap where they, and Terry, were interviewed about how they were conned by a builder who took their money and to see how the work was progressing. It was very moving and a good witness. We are thrilled to report that we have finished the whole of the back extension and thank all of those who had a part in this. The girls (Chloe and Esther) are doing well at school and Benjamin has started in nursery .

A VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND SPECIAL NEW YEAR to you all.

With our love, Terry and Fran xx

We have just joined in the celebration of the wedding of Sarah Churcher with Dylan Harthill at Raglan Road Christian Church in Birmingham. Sarah was with us for a while before moving north. Terry was privileged to be asked to conduct the marriage ceremony. Janna was a bridesmaid and Philip prayed for the couple following the vows. This weekend sees the return home of Abigail who has been with us for 5 months and Philip. who has been visiting for 10 days. returns back on Monday. During these months we have only been away mostly on weekends but from the 28th November we plan to travel away from London more of the time. This month we are in the midst of "The Marriage Course", hosting one at Clifton Community Church in Worthing and attending one at St Paul's, Onslow Square where Nicky and Sila Lee lead the sessions. On the weekend of the 28th November we travel to Gorton Evangelical Church in Manchester to share about the work of Ameva and travel the following weekend to Auchenheath in Scotland to do the same as well as preach in the morning meeting. Sandwiched between these two weekends we are taking a break at Centre Parcs in Whinfell Forest, Cumbria. On our return from Scotland we make a quick two day trip to France and return in time to speak at the fellowship here in Eltham on the 12th December. The rest of the year will be taken up mainly with the Christmas programme. We do thank you for your continual love and support. Terry & Fran

We returned back from Lanark in Scotland on Wednesday this week and were anticipating the arrival of John & Celia Valentine from Zimbabwe to spend 10 days with us here in Eltham. However Air Zimbabwe pilots went on strike a couple of weeks ago and all flights on that airline had to be cancelled so John & Celia now arrive next week. Fortunately we returned down to London with Mickey Wright from the Auchenheath Fellowship who was hoping to secure a visa for a trip to Nigeria and was able to speak on Sunday morning at Eltham. He brought an amazing word on "The ashes" nothing to do with cricket but more to do with our walk with God. You can download his message on the Eltham Green website www.egcc.co.uk. This Friday we travel to France for two days returning late Saturday evening ready to share the ministry on Sunday morning. I plan to speak from the book of Hebrews on "Spiritual Sensitivity" One of the great concerns of the writer was that the Christians were not growing in their faith in fact he says they were remaining "babes in Christ". The danger of growing in some ares of life but not in others is that you become disabled. This Sunday I want to address one of the most prominant lacks. We appreciate very much your support both prayerfully and practically.


updated 8th September 2010

This Friday we fly from Stansted to Edinburgh to spend a weekend with the church at Lanark. They meet for conference every three months and invite all the various churches in the locality. Saturday morning the men of these churches are invited to attend and I have arranged for a discussion on the foundational truths we find in Hebrews 6 v 1-2 as an introduction to the Sunday meetings where I want to speak about our spiritual sensitivity. The writer to the Hebrews is concerned that the Hebrew Christians have lost their way in their relationship with God. Frances has a ladies meeting booked for Saturday afternoon and we both joining with the elders and their wives on Monday evening. We return on Wednesday.

Caroline joined us here in Eltham when she was 16 when Terry & Brenda Mosley were still in China and stayed with us for 7 years until her marraige to David. In the evening we shall be attending Eltham Green Community Church as we continue our month of prayer in seeking God for His will regarding the work the church does here as we reach out into the community. There are a number of activities where leaders are moving on and we need to know how we should continue. We will be around in Eltham until the 10th September when we fly to Edinburgh to spend 4 days with the church at Lanark. We shall update you on this trip after we have returned. Thank you for your continuing support both prayerfully and practically.

It has been interesting to listen to New Life Radio broadcasting from the New Life Conference at Rora House in Liverton Devon. Until this year we would have been producing our own programme each morning and involved in planning the meetings. At the end of 2008 we felt clearly of the Lord that this phase of our lives in the management of the conference had come to a close. This year we will be travelling down on Monday and spend 5 days at the meetings returning on Friday. We shall be staying in Okehampton on the northern edge of Dartmoor. We have no plans to be speaking over the next two Sundays but will be attending the services at Eltham. The church has begun a month of prayer and fasting seeking God for the work we do and the need for the Lord to raise up workers. Next Sunday we shall be join Daniel & Louisa in the dedication of Zachari in the mroning meeting. We thank you for your continuing support & prayer.

Much love Terry & Fran

Welcome to our website dated the 18th July 2010

This week has been very encouraging as we have been involved in both church ministry and the work at the Ameva Bible College. Last Sunday we were privileged to visit the Epsom Christian Fellowship where we had the opportunity to preach in the morning meeting and share something of the work at Ameva Bible College and Farm in the evening. The word the Lord had put on my heart was confirmed by Colin Davies who was leading the meeting "Take no thought for tomorrow" and I was sharing from Peter's experience in prison in Acts 12 where the night before he was due to be executed he was asleep chained between two soilders. The scripture records that "prayer was made without ceasing for him" and God sent His angel not because he was in a panic about his life but because he had absolute trust in the care and protection of His Lord. During the week Jim Bailey and I travelled to Liverpool for three days to meet up with a number of teachers who have been to the Ameva Bible School where we addressed some difficulties relating to the setting and marking of the assignments. We were able to confirm our programme for the new intake in November. The good news this week is that the container has finally arrived. Celia Valentine writes " Rather a hectic week. Monday gave out clothes to pastors, Tuesday Bible study & visit to senior citizens, Wednesday Harare to sort out vehicle parts for farm, Thursday Grace & I worked 10 hours straight unpacking boxes & sorting out clothes for the Ameva workers & families, Friday laid up with bad back but managed to do some shopping, Saturday sorted clothes & blankets for Ameva old people. John had to go to Harare on Thursday & Friday re vehicle - we are trying to sort out the farm vehicles but it is a big job. I am intending to distribute blankets to the workers next week & some clothes to others in our farm village. The week after it will be the turn of the school teachers & then the school children. So far we have managed to please everyone!"

Thank you for all those at Eltham who helped with this project.
