23rd December 2019
After the busyness of the last two weekends of Carol Services and Family Christmas Services, it’s good to take a moment to pause and look forward to Christmas Day itself and New Year. Here’s a quick reminder of what’s happening at King’s over the rest of the Christmas period:
There will be one morning service at 10.30am at Catford, Downham and Lee. This will be an hour-long family service and is always a great way to celebrate Christmas Day.
SUNDAY 29 DECEMBER
Join us on the last Sunday of the year but note there will only be one meeting at each site, including Beckenham, at 10.30am.
Our New Year’s Eve Watchnight service has become a highlight for me. I love seeing in the New Year praying and worshipping with God’s people! This year we will be holding three services - at Catford, Downham and Lee - from 10.30pm to 12.30am. Because there is a limit to the number we can accommodate at each site, we are ticketing the event once more. Tickets are free but they are going fast, so if you plan to be there, please book in here.
21 DAYS OF PRAYER
Whilst I am looking forward to some time off over the Christmas and New Year period, I am also very excited about what’s coming up in January. At our Vision Sunday in October, I shared our conviction that God wants King’s to have a renewed focus on prayer. We are therefore starting off the new decade by calling the church to 21 Days of Prayer. From Monday 6 January until Sunday 26 January, we will gather for an hour at 7.00pm every day, for 21 consecutive days. We will meet at the Catford site every evening except Fridays, when we will meet at each site. I am planning to be at them all and I keep hearing of more people who intend to do the same! I realise this is not possible for all of you, but I hope that you will join us as often as you can, as we worship, pray and wait upon God together.
Until then, have a very happy Christmas and New Year.
