27th January 2016
It was fantastic to hear this week that we already have over 1,000 people signed up for groups again, a wonderful response to our new series, Transformed. This promises to be a challenging and relevant series which will take a biblical look at essential areas of our discipleship, such as our finances, our relationships, and our spiritual health. We are encouraging everybody at King's to do three things: be here on Sundays, be part of a group, and be transformed daily – read the daily Transformed Bible study, which can be found in the book accompanying the series. So, if you haven't already done so, there is still time to sign up for a group, although places are filling up fast!
What a joy it was to have our Zimbabwe friends, Scott Marques and Renee Cunningham, with us last weekend. Once again I was so impressed with their zeal for the Lord and their provocation to pursue God and serve Him wholeheartedly, whatever the circumstances. I am confident that we will build on this relationship in the coming years. (If you missed Scott's message, you can listen to it here.)
This evening we have the privilege of welcoming Mike Pilavachi to the last of our January prayer and celebration evenings. Mike is senior pastor of Soul Survivor Church in Watford and founder of the Soul Survivor festival – I know that our young people are particularly excited about his visit since he is a popular speaker at Newday. He is a gifted and entertaining preacher and this is definitely an evening not to be missed. Don't forget that tonight's meeting will be at our Lee Site, so if you haven't yet made it over there, this is a great time to go and have a look at our fantastic new auditorium. Doors open at 7.45pm and the meeting will begin at 8pm.
This Sunday Phil Varley will be launching the Transformed series at Catford and Lee. We will also be baptising 12 people through the day – another great weekend ahead!
