This Sunday saw us worshipping together at the University of West London for the first time! What a great time it was, the venue may have changed, but our God hasn’t! He loves to meet with us wherever we are!
There are obviously practical reasons why we have moved from the Town Hall, but we also firmly believe as a church that God is leading us into a new season which will be full of excitement, and that we can expect him to move powerfully amongst us and in our community as a result of our new Sunday venue!
As part of his preach on Sunday, Rich talked about the potential impact we can have as a church on our local community, and below are just some of the ways in which we are praying God will use us as we meet at the university.
We are believing that being in such an influential space for the student population in Ealing will allow us to see the gospel made known amongst students and young adults in the local area more than we have before!
Our new refreshments and welcome area is a fantastic space for conversation and fellowship, both for Redeemer family members and for guests. We are praying that God uses this extra space to continue to welcome more people into our family, and create genuine friendships in which we build one another up and encourage each other to walk in the plans God has for us!
With refreshments and welcome happening in a separate location, there is greater opportunity to respond and receive prayer after the services. We are praying that God speaks to people through our preaching and during the worship times and that we are able to follow up by continuing to pray with individuals after the meeting. We are expecting God to use this extra time and space to transform hearts and lives!
We now have more seats in the room on a Sunday morning than we ever have before! We are praying that God continues to bring new people to us at Redeemer that we might be able to bless and share the love of Jesus with! We believe that God will fill the empty seats with new Redeemer family members!
These are just a few of the ways that we are praying God will move in and through us in this next season at Redeemer. We have received prophetic words recently about stepping up, graduating, and experiencing new things in God and there is a sense of excitement stirring amongst us! If you haven’t already, why not join us in the next few weeks as we take the next steps on this journey as a church!
