Farewell song — 4

See this post for the explination …

An original blues …

I woke up this morning
and Tim was gone
I felt all alone
so I wrote down this song

WYnet’s never gonna be the same
Leader’s meetings gonna be so lame
Can’t help thinking it’s such a shame
Tim is gone, so long

No breakfast this morning
‘Cause Tim is gone
No milk for my cornflakes
I just have this song

WYnet’s never gonna be the same
Leader’s meetings gonna be so lame
Can’t help thinking it’s such a shame
Tim is gone, so long

I went to the meeting
But where was my Tim?
We can’t hear his laugh now
It ain’t the same without him

WYnet’s never gonna be the same
Leader’s meetings gonna be so lame
Can’t help thinking it’s such a shame
Tim is gone, so long

I woke up this morning
And Stevo was there
It’s all looking up now
WYnet’s in his care

WYnet’s never gonna be the same
But we know God’s in charge of this game
We’ll keep praising our God’s name
Stevo’s here, give a cheer

Oh yeah!

To the tune of

Shrek in the swamp karaoke dance party

Don’t go leaving this song is cheesy
It’s sad to see you close the door

You helped us through the rainy mess,
Although our tents were soaked through
We would have no place to sleep it weren’t for you.

I like meal times and I cannot lie,
Though he never ever made us pie,
He made us curry and spuds and it’s good
But when I get desert I get a


It’s fun to stay at WYnet with Tim
It’s fun to stay at WYnet with Tim

Do you really want to leave us?
Do you really want to make us cry?

Boo hoo boo hoo
I’m Gonna cry
I’m gonna cry
Boo hoo boo hoo

Who got his head shaved, Tim Tim Tim Tim Tim
Who got his legs waxed. Tim Tim Tim Tim Tim

He was an awesome drummer
His use of a capo was neat, yeah yeah yeah.

You were great but now we are run by Stevo
it is pretty nice

Goodbye timbo
Hello to stevo
(Repeat to end)

To the tune of

fix you by Coldplay

when you’ve been at WYnet for so long
there are so many things to put in a song
that is was hard to choose

Tim has made so many meals
lasagne and curry
jacket ‘taters and casserole

when you waxed your legs we felt for you
Oh how much pain we’ve put you through
but its just payback, for all the mocking
but we love you, honestly

Tim will play guitar and drums and bass
with a wicked smile upon his face
all in keys we cant sing

tears stream down our face
coz you are being replaced
tears stream down our face
but we’ll get over it.
coz steves great!

Farewell Song — 1

Everyday at WYnet Camp this summer, each team was challanged to video a task.  Monday was Human pyramids, Tuesday a fake Syncronised swimming routine, Wednesday, the challange was to write a song and shoot a music video in memory of me.   You see, Wednesday evening was the official hand over of WYnet to Steve.   If you really want to know more, ask about the maglite!

My next few posts will be said videos with the lyrics.   They all made me laugh and cry all at the same time!

Here is the first,

To the tune of

Viva La Vida by Coldplay

You used to rule WYnet,
Awesome talks and a big worship set,
Thinking up themes and games,
Funky scoreboards and group names

We shaved off all your hair,
Waxed your legs till they were bare,
Singing in the highest key,
Cos Tim sings like a lady

Thank you Tim for all your cooking,
Smash like playdoe it was…interesting,
Dutch long shot at the highest speed,
Running down the field like a one man stampede

For some reason your leaving us,
so pack your bags and get on the bus
Move to the office next door
Cos your not young anymore…

WYnet Camp 09

I have spent this week at WYnet’s annual summer camp, it is actually thier 14th Annual summer camp.  It could also be my last, having been to 13 out of those 14, I have been to more WYnet UK events than any other person in the world.  Which is kind of cool an odd at the same time.  This week i have been catering for the campers, but also

I am currently sat at the WYnet laptop in the main meeting hall, the same hall we have met for the last 6 years and I am in awe of all the things God has done in here with our group over those years.   As I have sat at the back during the week I have had a HUGE grin on my face for so much of the time.

Had to write the rest of this form home …

I have been constantly amazed and priveledged this week, to have been involved in such an amazing ministry for so long.  Seeing Andy King sing his heart out like never before, it was awesome to see him sing wtih freedom, and passion and hti soem great notes and twiddles, it ROCKED!   It was aweseom seeing Ian Gray 10 minutes itno his talk, make everyone stand and pray for each other for what ever needed healing.   It was UNBELEIVEABLE to see Ruth Buie deliver her first WYnet talk, something I admit I never thought I would see.  She was awesome, an even later on, when she off her own back, without the need for promting went off to pray with on of the girls.  BRILLIANT.

It has also been very emotional, as the group prayered for me on Wednesday after handing over teo steve, catching glipses of people sharing thiers desires for Me before God.  Humbling, and teenagers pray that you will “have no hesitation in doing what God wants you to, with all the passion he has given to you”, now that was a prayer!

I have laughed a LOT.  as people have shared stories about past events, and things that i have done to people, or even times when i have got stroppy about something unbeleivebly insignificant.

I have also cried a lot.  During rehursals when andy king did THAT SONG and let rip for the first time, it totally reduced me to tears.  I sy God at work in Andy, I saw that God had used me and my ministry to help people take the next step.  I felt pride for the team of peopel that I have passed on to Steve.  Hearing that one of the now leaders first felt that she heard the voice of God at a WYnet meeting whilst singing a song I had written.  That was 6 years ago, and i never knew that.  Humbling.   I guess i have been humbled quite a few times during this week!

I have been very blessed to have been involved in such an amazing ministry.

Andy was kind enough to let me play drums for the worship set on the last evening, to be honest, quite an emotional evening for me.  We had done the offical hand on wednesday night, we had done an un-offical had over back in march when i moved out the office!  But Friday just as we were stodd praying about to begin the session, I was totally overwhelmed about this being the last night of what could possibliy be my last camp.  We got cracking had an AWESOME evening, good music, great worship, great spontanious monemts, great moments of pouring out out hearts to God, and even great jumping for dancing generation our last song.   There has always been something special about worship during WYnet events, and that night was no exception.   When we were wdone, I gave Andy a big hung, and started to sink into my “this is the end” lull.  I coiled cables moved speakers, eventually i headed over to the dining hall and got a cup of and just pondered for a while how awesome God is and simply how much I am going to miss all those amazing times with the WYnet peeps.

I am goingg to totally miss those amazing amazing leaders that have grown soo much, and changed soo much, and honestly and openly shared thier lives with people, and stepped up to the plate every time they have needed to.  They are unique people and will always be very special to me.

As for the rest of the WYnetters, I will always be eager to hear about how God has used the to impact the lives of others.  I am excited to see what God will do in thier lives.  And just to clarify to the campers, I will NOT, EVER EVER ride the pony 😉
