3rd March 2016
One of the things I love about my role is that it is so varied. No two weeks are ever the same and this week has proved to be no exception. After an excellent day at King’s on Tuesday, which included a very fruitful staff afternoon (what a fantastic bunch of people they are!), I have spent much of the week focussing on the Newfrontiers world. For the last couple of days I have been meeting with a group of key leaders from our Newfrontiers family to pray for and discuss our future together. Then tomorrow night I am looking forward to speaking at a New Ground training event – New Ground, for those who don’t know, is one of the Newfrontiers groups of churches, headed up by Dave Holden.
Following that, my attention this weekend will be back on King’s and I would like to highlight our next two Sundays. As I am sure you know, this Sunday is Mother’s Day (Mum – your card is already in the post!) and across the sites there will be dedication services for ten families and their children. We will be taking a week's break from our Transformed series: in the morning meetings at Catford, Deb and I will be speaking on building great families and Phil and Sarah Varley will be speaking at Downham and Lee. Then in the evening I am delighted to say that we will be welcoming Ben Lindsay to preach at our 5:30 meeting. Ben used to be a member of King’s and is now an elder at Emmanuel Church, Greenwich – it will be great to have him with us.
The week after that, on Sunday 13th March, I would like to ask you to make every effort to be with us to welcome Andrew and Rachel Wilson, who will be at King’s for the day. Andrew will be preaching the next in our Transformed series, and I will also be interviewing them both. This will be a chance to get to know them a little before Andrew joins our team in September as our teaching pastor.
All in all, a busy, varied and satisfying week! And as it is my birthday on Saturday, I will take the chance to have a day off and spend some time with the family before a full day with our church family on Sunday. I look forward to seeing you there.
