Day of Prayer and Fasting

I am inviting all of you at King’s to a day of prayer and fasting on Thursday 4th June, finishing with two one-hour prayer meetings on Zoom, from 7-8pm and 8.15-9.15pm. We would love you to join us for one, and if you would like to, you are welcome to come to both.

Just five months ago during our 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting, we gathered in our hundreds night after night to encounter God and ask Him to move in this nation. We may not have known then what lay ahead of us, but we can be certain that God did. Now, I am calling the church to pray again:

I am delighted that Terry Virgo, the founding father of Newfrontiers, will be taking part in the day. An online interview with him will be available to view throughout the day, and I have also invited him to pray for us as a church.

More details will follow soon, but for now, please put 4 June in your diaries and be ready to come before God in prayer, with faith and expectation.

An Update from Steve and Deb

It’s almost eight weeks now since the UK went into lockdown. In our blog this week, Deb and I talk about the latest changes to the restrictions that were announced on Sunday and what the implications may be for King’s going forward. We also discuss the current preaching series and what we are thinking of teaching on next.

King’s, we miss seeing you all, and we look forward to the time when we are able to meet again. As we walk through this season, let’s continue to place our confidence and trust in God, who never fails us and is always working to bring about His purposes.

'The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.' Psalm 29:11

The People of God

Well King’s, we approach the end of another week, our seventh week in lockdown. Like me, I am sure many of you are hoping for an easing of some of the restrictions after the weekend. There is no doubt that the last weeks have been hard at times, particularly for those affected directly by Covid-19, and we continue to pray for all those who have lost loved ones to this terrible illness. The loss of face-to-face connection with family and friends has also been costly. I know Deb and I are missing our grandson Isaac (and his parents of course!) and the moment rules are relaxed we will be knocking on their door.

While we are hopeful of some small changes soon, we know that it is likely to be some time before churches are permitted to gather in buildings again. But as I said last week, though our buildings may be empty right now, the church is very much alive – we have simply moved location! This was brought home in a powerful way last Sunday by the video the comms team had put together. Wasn’t it great to see so many faces from King’s and hear how people are doing? I enjoyed it so much, I thought I’d include it here for you to watch again.

Church has never been about buildings; church is the people. This video reminds us that even though we may not be able to see one another in person on Sundays, we as a church are present, active and continuing to love and serve God through the challenges of this time.

I hope you will tune in for our service again this Sunday, when I will be preaching on Psalm 23.

Stay connected. Stay safe. Stay prayerful.

‘Be still and know that I am God.’ Psalm 46: 10

Latest Update from Deb and Steve

Well, it’s hard to believe but we are nearing the end of our sixth week of lockdown! We hope you are keeping well. This week, Deb and I thought we’d bring you a quick update on how we’re both doing, as well as latest news of what’s happening at King’s.

We are missing our King’s family and are praying for you all. But we are trusting God that His Kingdom continues to advance during this season. Our church buildings may be empty for the moment, but that doesn’t mean the church is not present – we have simply moved location! As you have heard, there is a lot going on, so take a look at the website, and follow us on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. Let’s stay connected, stay safe and stay prayerful.

We look forward to worshipping with you online again this Sunday.
