The Mouse Town

The Ministry, Musings and Mishaps

from St M's Parish in the Town of Merryworth...

Resolution One: I Will Live for God...

Dear Friends,

Hello and welcome to my website in which I will be sharing the ministry, musings and mishaps from the unique world of the Mouse Town!

I am delighted that you will be joining me in what promises to be an exciting time for this 12th scale parish, particularly as those church mice will be joining us on this journey and I for one cannot wait to see the adventures that they and that  Little Big Cat will be getting up to!

Although the models used for the Mouse Town were lovingly designed and cherished by me some time ago, they took something of a battering during my sad move to York in 2014 and as life became ever more difficult and my creativity and optimism deserted me; I left them to unhappily languish in the cold isolation of my shed.

And when in the dying days of a long summer - I finally listened to that  little voice telling me that it was time to return to my ministry and having moved them to my large studio in York and despite the long working days - they have now  been restored to their former glory.

I share this sorry tale with you as a reminder that no matter how beaten and disappointed life can leave us; there is always hope but only if we never stop hoping!

I was glad when they said to me, 'Let us go to the Lord's house.' And now we are here... Psalm 22:1

And on Homeless Sunday in 2017 - the doors of St M's Parish Church opened once more and having gone to the trouble of creating a feast of tasty goulash in polymer clay for the less fortunate of the parish; I was also determined to put those church mice to work that day.

I should add that the mice who braved the cold to serve up the hot lunch of tasty goulash I had prepared and to raise awareness and support for those who have no home they can call their own - well, they did me proud!

Now, here's to making our world a better place  - one mouse at a time!


P.S. I will let you into a little secret - our friend God is known as

'Mr Madrigal' here at St M's...
