18th September 2014
Those of you who have been at King's for some time will know that September is the start of our church year. After the summer break there's a sense of another starting line for the life and ministry of our great church and this year is no exception! Vision Sunday marks the official start this coming weekend.
I'm looking forward to preaching at all three sites this Sunday and sharing with you something of what I believe God is calling us to in the time ahead. I have given my talk the title - ‘Come and See' and I look forward to seeing you there. This is a day not to miss! Please do all you can to be at one of the six meetings and come prayerfully prepared - as we look around at the communities we serve we have a great call on our lives to reach the lost people of southeast London - and beyond. Here's a short video clip to whet your appetite...
Apart from taking time this weekend to consider the King's vision and our local mission, another great event rapidly approaches. We have been actively involved with the Willow Creek UK Association for some years and the Global Leadership Summit, which we will be hosting here at our Catford site takes place on Friday and Saturday October 10th-11th. This is always a brilliant couple of days.
Entitled Lead Where You Are, this videocast event will give us the chance to hear world-class speakers from outside our usual network - men and women with experience and expertise in areas of leadership who have proved to be helpful to churches like us all over the world. The sessions are on video and there will be a well-stocked bookstall. Come and be inspired and encouraged! You can find further details and book online here. A special rate of £30 is available for regular King's attenders - book via the King's website!
Each year in September we have been able to look back on all God has done for us as a church and all He has brought us through. We can also look ahead with faith knowing that He holds the future and has even more for us - it's His call! Let's enter into all He has for us with joy and resolve to follow and serve as His faithful people, covered by His grace. Come and see on Sunday!
