Who are John and May?

WELCOME TO THIS PAGE!

YOU HAVE ARRIVED AT A PAGE THAT IS

TOTALLY SELF INDULGENT!

BE WARNED!!!!

🙃

An evening out!
Time oot with Mickey Moose
1972 ish
The early 70's
In Singapore 1974 ish

This is 'our page' where we introduce ourselves to you...

Our background is the Christian Ministry. We have been Missionaries in Singapore and evangelists to the Royal Navy (John had previously been 12 years in the Navy). We studied and obtained our degrees at Trinity Theological College Bristol and after some time in Rosyth Scotland as evangelists, John was ordained in 1982 in an Independent Reformed Baptist Church Edinburgh.

We then ministered in a large International student church in Brighton then again in Sunderland Free Church. John's expository ministry took him to other parts of the world.  On return to Fife we took up a work with the homeless in Glenrothes, working for the Scottish Christian Alliance, May managed the Gilven House Project and John was Assistant Director.

However, having no pension scheme for our retirement we took the plunge and bought our little flat in Taylor street for a pension income ....then it went on from there!

Although we are now retired 🙃 our properties are run by both of us having at our disposal a 'team' of good reliable local tradesmen.

We divide our responsibilities, May doing the paperwork and tenant contact as she has mobility problems due in part to her past cancer treatment and her immune deficiency ('Goods syndrome'). John does the leg-work and small maintainence jobs/cleaning, accounts and the website. John is also Ministry Leader at Lower Largo church which entails his doing Sunday sermons and mid-week bible studies. See www.largo-baptist-church.co.uk 

May is from Glasgow - John is a little more complicated...born in Lincolnshire, possibly a French Grandad on one side and a Bespoke Taylor on the other and the rest of his family in Alabama!!

Here are some photos

John's other stories and his website

www.john-cropley.com

 

John has written a number of light hearted stories concerning childhood adventures. They are short and a bunch of fun and free. They can be found on his personal website along with other information and something of his journey of faith with links to some sermons -  together with other stuff....this is still being built and is a work in progress enjoy and except for the faith section please don't take it too seriously!!

THANK YOU ALL FOR READING OUR WEBSITE

WE HOPE YOU HAVE ENJOYED THE EXPERIENCE 

Your Host, who is usually only allowed out on Fridays!
