This Sunday will be the first of our new ‘Encounter’ evenings at Welcome Church. We will be gathering to worship, to make space for the Holy Spirit and to see what God wants to do. I’m excited already.
The evening will start with some teaching (from me) on The Holy Spirit and then we will move on to a time of worship, led by our amazing band, and then we’ll see where we go from there. The agenda is not over planned. This is about making room for God to work.
Expect to come and meet with God
Everyone is welcome, so if you have friends from other churches who would want to come please invite them or bring them along too. This is the first time we will do this event this year, and more dates will follow.
Parking is possible on Sunday evening at The Annexe (our offices), all along Poole Road, at Pulse or Reproprint (also on Poole Road), at Church Gate (which is next door to us), and in our own Oaks Road car park (as long as you put your number plate into the system at some point before you leave).
I want to mention an awesome event we have planned for Saturday May 2nd. We have invited Tom and Suzie Brock, from Wave of Life Ministries (USA), to come and lead a ‘prophetic day’ for us at Welcome Church. These guys are going to bless us so much and I’m getting excited again already.
Please put this one in your diaries now!
Tom and Suzie will be spending the Saturday speaking to the whole church, and we may open that up to other churches too.
The evening will then be just for people who have leadership responsibility at Welcome Church (at any level … kids work, life group, worship, car park teams, any leadership responsibility at all – if you lead something here you are invited to the evening).
They will also be speaking on the Sunday morning and sending some time with our eldership team as well.
We have had the privilege of meeting Tom and Suzie as a team, and they also come highly recommended. To quote Mike Pilavachi, “I have known Tom and Suzie Brock for many years. They have been frequent visitors to our church and festivals. Their ministry is full of integrity, insight, kindness and depth. I commend them to you.”
This is a weekend you won’t want to miss.
