Jackets, scarves, and umbrellas are slowly coming out in London. The leaves are also changing as Autumn has arrived and a new season for many has just begun or is about to begin in the next few days. Children have begun a new year of school and first year university students are descending upon London to start a new chapter in their lives.
This week Imperial London College (Recently named as the 2nd Top University in the World) will have thousands of new students arriving on campus. Our church has a society on this campus so we will be on a mission this week to not only welcome new Christian Students but to also share the Gospel with as many people as possible. Our church is passionate about campus ministry and we know that these young people will be tomorrow’s leaders so it is vital that we make as much of an impact on campus as we can. Please pray for us to have favour with the students and faculty as well as wisdom and grace in sharing the Gospel.
Our Connect Groups have also started up again after the summer break and this past month I have already had the pleasure of visiting four of them and I can’t tell you how excited they make me! The diversity in ages, nationalities and spiritual maturity is amazing! It’s so exciting to see that church is not just happening on Sunday and that people are being ‘church’ to and with each other.
Last Sunday was also a highlight for me. For the past few years I have been helping our Worship Leader - Dina – to raise up a Youth Band. This past Sunday they led Worship at our Slough Congregation and I must say – they went to another level! The drummer we have had over the past 2 years has gone on to University and keen to step in her place was a 10 year old boy called Matthew. With only 4 practices under his belt he played his heart out and the band led with such an anointing.
Please pray for me over this next month. I will be working with all age groups in many different areas such as Connect Groups, Bible School, Mentoring teens, Worship, and University Students. Thank you for ALL of your support. You have a part in everything that I do! You are touching people’s lives in London!
