Because I feel that God wants to do a restoring work in areas of my heart and life – and after much prayer, reflection and discussion with my wife and close friends - I have come to the conclusion that the Lord requires me to lay down my leadership of Community Church Huddersfield, and to step down from eldership there. I have realised that it would be too difficult to continue with the pressures of leadership while co-operating with God in the work he is doing in and with me at this present time.
I will continue as a member of the church family and will continue to use my teaching and other gifts as part of the body, but I will not be in governmental leadership. I will be working alongside the leadership of the family of churches that we are in relationship with, in the area of theological research and developing written teaching resources. I will also continue to blog, and hope readers will find helpful what I have to write here.
