The first of these is to share communion together. We've struggled for a while to find the right context for communion, and although I still think the best place for communion is in LifeGroups we're now also going to share communion together once a month at the prayer meetings.
Secondly I'm going to spend time sharing some of the latest Kerith news. With the new three meetings format we aren't going to be having Church Vision Nights of the style we've had in the past, so this will be a chance to talk about some of the things we would previously have talked about there. There is quite a bit of news to talk about this time round including a new member of staff, details on the forthcoming preaching series and some other exciting developments, as well as a comment on some of the challenges we face.
We'll then be asking God to break into various areas of our community life.
I really want to encourage as many people to make it to the prayer meetings as possible. Prayer is a key to us growing to be a church of 2,000, and us individually and as a community flourishing in the current economic climate.
Hope to see you there!
