It’s week 2 in Edgware and God is doing amazing things already. On Monday this poster went up outside the church. On Wednesday we doubled the number attending the coffee morning albeit mostly with regular coffee morning attendees or church members.
Then on Friday as we spent the morning moving all the chairs back into place which had been moved for floor polishing, a young lady comes in asking to meet the new vicar. She is of Hindu background and feels called to Jesus. She lives in the area and saw the poster outside. We had a chat and have arranged to meet 1-1 next Wednesday to explore Christianity and what it means to follow Jesus. Praise God.
I left the church for an hour to visit the local funeral directors as I’m doing a funeral on Monday at Hendon Crematorium and needed to sort out the music for the service. When I got back to church I’m told I’ve just missed another lady who walked in to meet the new vicar as she felt called to give her life to Jesus. She was given our new weekly bulletin with my contact details and invited to come back on Sunday. She has already text me and we have arranged to meet up next Friday to talk about baptism preparation. She is hoping to come to church on Sunday as well. Praise God.
Thank you to everyone who has been praying for our ministry at St Margaret’s in Edgware, God is answering your prayers. Please do continue so that more and more people come to know Jesus and join the church family. Blessings, Sally
p.s. Our dog Xena enjoyed the morning running round the new church, checking the churchyard for squirrels as I litter-picked, and prayer walking to and from the Funeral Directors, as we explored our new parish.
