We had our first Sunday meetings in our new Welcome Church building in the heart of Woking this week, and what a great day it was!
Around 750 people attended across the two morning meetings, and some of the highlights for me included:
- The sense of joy and excitement after so long waiting for a new building
- Seeing so many people from our church gathered across the two meetings
- The excellent coffee and refreshments (thank you Marcus, Sharon and team)
- The top notch parking arrangements that came together and worked so well (thank you Richard and team)
- Embarrassing the awesome Mike Deavin by getting him to sit on the stage in an armchair with a blanket whilst I preached (thank you Mike)
- The amazing worship times … our musicians and sound team were absolutely ON IT! (Thank you team)
I also enjoyed gathering in the evening to pray around the whole site.
An extra special thank you goes to Charles C for the huge amount of time he put in to make sure that everything worked in terms of sound, lights and visuals.
Next Sunday we will back again at 9am and 11am
You will see some changes to the building that have taken place this week as the builders have continued towards finishing the job.
And in terms of parking please do head to Philips Court again (left hand side of the Fire Station) and you will be directed from there.
Here are a few photos from the day for you to enjoy in case you missed them:
