It’s time for a shameless plug. Not the bath or electrical type, but the “something-I’m-excited-about” type.
Usually I write about events of the recent past. This week is an exception. It’s time to write about something future. Specifically…
The first ever Watford Sunday service for the London International church of Christ Watford Family Group. 10.30am, 5th October 2014 at the Holywell Community Centre, Chaffinch Lane, Watford, WD18 9QD.
It’s been a long time a-coming, and a long time a-praying, but it’s almost here. This doggedly determined group of devoted disciples have dreamt of the day a Watford hall would ring with spiritual singing.
We are a group of 20-odd adults and around the same number of children – I’ve lost count. The spread is significant. God has placed us in Chesham, Aylesbury, Hemel Hempstead, Dunstable, Croxley Green, Chorleywood, Bushey and Watford. But we come together because of the common bond as followers of Jesus Christ. We’ve mourned together, eaten together, laughed, cried and prayed together. Babies have been born, couples married and relatives buried. We open our Bibles, our hearts, our mouths and our ears to learn from God and from one another.
Our normal meetings are Wednesdays, but something special is happening for us this Sunday. For the first time we are going to gather to break bread, preach the Word, pray and sing songs together with our friends and relatives on a Sunday in Watford. Please, if you are within driving distance, come along and join us. If you’re too far away you have two actions: pray for us; and invite your friends who live close enough to attend.
I cannot promise an all-singing all-dancing event, but I can promise a warm welcome from sincere people, good teaching from God’s word, and an excellent, simple lunch!
Now you know how important this event is you might be asking, “How do I get there?” Well, find Tolpits Lane in Watford and at a sharp bend you will see this:
