Building a diverse church
serving the communities of London

Invited Highlights and Prayers for London

What a fantastic Sunday we had last week, as we ended our series on diversity with a time of worship and celebration. I particularly enjoyed watching the short video of highlights from the series, put together by the creative team at King’s. It gives a taste of what INVITED has been all about, and I thought I would share it with you here – it is well worth a look!



As we broke bread together on Sunday, it was a reminder that in His death and resurrection, Jesus destroyed all barriers between us and brought peace. As I said last week, I believe we still have much to learn in the area of diversity, and INVITED has been another step in a longer journey. But I know that God is at work among us, and I trust that what He has started will continue over the next months and years.

This Sunday is Mother’s Day and we will be taking the opportunity to remember and honour the women in our lives. We are also holding dedication services, when parents come to give thanks for new babies and to commit themselves to bringing them up in God’s ways. Can I encourage all of you at King’s to come early and to be ready to welcome the many guests we are expecting? It should be a great Sunday and I look forward to seeing you there!

All the material from the series is available online at kingschurchlondon.org/invited.

As I was writing this blog yesterday, news was starting to come in of the tragic events in Westminster. It is always shocking when atrocities such as this take place, particularly when it happens so close to home. As London gets back on its feet, let us continue to pray for the friends and family of those who have died, for the people still recovering from injuries, for the emergency and security services, and for peace to come to this city.
