On the evening of Sunday 20th May we're going to have a band, called The Moment, with us.
The band is lead by a guy called Dave Bell - this is a bit of his story:
In 2003 Dave was diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive cancer that was attacking the back of his right eye. The outlook was bleak. Dave had to undergo 6 months of intense chemotherapy and 25 sessions of intense radiotherapy. Dave was confronted with the fact that his life may be cut short but through this grasped the truth that God would heal him and bring him through the storm. 6 years on Dave is living life to the full and continuing to share his story of healing. Dave got married to the beautiful Sarah in the summer of 2007. The doctors told Dave that he would never be able to have children because of the treatment that he endured but against all the odds Dave and Sarah have a little boy called Jackson.
If that isn't enough to whet your appetite this is what Brian Houston, the Senior Pastor of Hillsong Church, had to say about Dave:
Dave Bell is an inspiring young man who writes songs out of his very own encounters with God. Dave’s testimony of healing and his personal journey will inspire you as you walk with God.
I know Dave through his dad Stuart, who as well as pastoring a great church in Lincoln, and leading a group of churches called Ground Level, also three times a year gathers a group of leaders form the around the UK of which I have the privilege of being a part.
Other than our normal welcome and offering the whole of the evening will be given over to the band. As well as leading us in worship and performing some of their songs, Dave will also be sharing some of his story, talking about his faith in Jesus and praying for the sick. Doors will open at 6pm, the band will be on at 7pm, and entrance is free.
It should not only be a great evening for us, but a quality event to invite others to as well. Please be thinking now about who you can bring along.
Hope to see you there!
