Update on Ukraine

It’s great to be able to share with you this latest video from Andrey Bondarenko updating us about the situation in Ukraine. Andrey is a dear friend and a part of the Newfrontiers Apostolic Fellowship. He and his family were forced to leave their home in Kyiv at the beginning of the conflict and are currently based in Poland. Here, Andrey talks about the challenge of leading in a rapidly changing situation and how the money raised by Newfrontiers is already helping people affected by the conflict.

Over £1 million has already been donated to the Newfrontiers Ukraine Fund, and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of you at King’s who have contributed towards this. It is so encouraging to see the international family of Newfrontiers coming together and responding with such generosity. The money raised is already being used to help refugees and others affected by the situation in Ukraine.

Let’s continue to pray for Andrey and his family and for all those affected by this crisis. You can find a more detailed list of prayer points on the Newfrontiers website.

Week of Prayer

‘The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our stronghold.’ – Psalm 46:7

I’d like to take the opportunity to remind you that we start a week of in-person prayer meetings at King’s from Sunday 6th to Friday 10th March. We will gather each evening from 7-8pm at our Catford site, except for Thursday evening when we will meet at our site venues. Beckenham will join with Catford for that evening.

I would like to encourage all of you to come to as many of the meetings as you can. If you are coming straight from work, or can’t quite make 7pm, you are welcome to join us for as much of the hour as you can. Deb and I are planning on being there every night. We are also inviting you to consider fasting, and you will find some helpful advice on doing this here.

As the terrible events in Ukraine continue, the need to pray feels even more urgent. Together we will bring before God the escalating conflict in Europe, as well as other issues we are facing in our nation and in our church. When we worship and call out to God, we remind ourselves of the One we serve, who is powerful and sovereign and able to do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine.

Pray for Ukraine

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

I’m sure, like me, you have been watching events unfolding in Ukraine with a growing sense of unease. To wake up this morning to news that Russia has now launched a full-scale invasion was shocking.

Deb and I had the privilege of visiting Ukraine in April 2019. We spent time with dear friends and worshipped with brothers and sisters from churches we have relationship with. We also had the opportunity to walk around Kiev, a beautiful European city with a fascinating history. Seeing pictures on the news this morning of people seeking shelter in Kiev’s underground stations or fleeing the city by car was heart-breaking.

The developments of the past few days have shocked us all, and it is easy to feel helpless. But we put our faith and trust in a powerful, sovereign God, ‘who is over all and through all and in all’. King’s, let’s respond to what’s happening with faith and in prayer.

Please pray:

• For our brothers and sisters in Ukraine, that they would know God’s peace and courage.
• For God’s protection upon the people and nation of Ukraine.
• For a de-escalation of the crisis and for a lasting peace to be brokered by those in positions of power and influence.

Let's Pray Together

On Sunday 6th March we begin a new teaching series called Together. We will be looking at some of the key characteristics of the New Testament church at Antioch, as described in the book of Acts, and consider what we can learn from their model.

That Sunday also marks the start of our next Week of Prayer, and I am very pleased to tell you that we will be meeting in-person! We will gather each evening from Sunday 6th until Friday 11th March, from 7pm to 8pm, on our Catford site, apart from Thursday evening (10th) when we will gather at our sites. (Beckenham will join the Catford site for that meeting.)

It will be a joy to come together in prayer once again after so long. We’d love you to join us for as many evenings as possible, and I encourage you to get the dates in your diary now.
