Had the privilege of sharing in worship tonight in a hotel near junction 24 of the M1, on the edge of Loughborough/Kegworth. A new venture begun by the area churches it is a brave attempt to get church out into the community.
Led by a worship group of four, and by Rev. Manville Wiles we sang some of the current cutting edge material from the likes of Matt Redman and co. I was then invited to preach for half-an-hour, before we sang some more and closed with tea/coffee.
A congregation of 25+ were in attendance.
Whether or not it attracts new people we wait and see but certainly full marks to the area churches for taking a step of faith and hiring the hotel room every Sunday. There are lessons to be learnt from this, but in amongst all that we continue to pray for the success of the venture. Please pray for them.
