Margaret and I have been involved with Crocus Ministries, a charity originally based in Colton, Staffordshire, UK, who provided rest and counselling for church leaders. Our home was used once a month for a Crocus Fellowship meeting for prayer and bible study in support of the charity's directors. Margaret worked for Crocus as an intercessor and I designed and maintained their web site.

Through my work with Crocus I was introduced to The John Young Foundation (JYF), based in Stafford, UK, who were also looking to get online. This charity brings together the Christian healing and medical communities. My early attempts at web design for this organisation were using Word 97 and extensive use of tables. There is an interim page for visitors and the design is now in the hands of another organisation.
