Meet the Musketeers

Musketeers of Jesus: Errol Shaw and Ann Metcalfe
Musketeers of Jesus: Errol Shaw and Ann Metcalfe

A couple who claimed to both have the same vision from God – despite being continents apart – have organised a series of events to spread the word.

Ann Metcalfe (51) was at home in Brierfield when she experienced a vision of three people on a stage talking to a crowd of people about the Bible.

Remarkably, her former neighbour Errol Shaw (64) claims to have experienced the same vision at his home in Darwen – Australia.

The experience was so profound, Mr Shaw says, that he decided to leave his life in Australia, and return home to Burnley.

Ann said: “I have known Errol for many years and we kept in touch when he moved to Australia.

“It was amazing when we told each other about our vision. Errol moved back home and we are now together and attending the New Beginnings Christian Centre in Halifax.

“We are calling ourselves the Musketeers for Jesus and we want to spread the word of God.”

The couple have booked King George’s Hall in Blackburn on January 31st and they say they plan to hold future events.
