Speer Road Church
(United Reformed Church)
The Last Word
The last few weeks have been a very busy time for our church. We have seen the work on the kitchen finished and are now able to use it, we had a unique experience in a talk by landscape photographer Charlie Waite with 270 people present, David Cornick spoke on the Reformation to 45 people from different churches in Thames Ditton, we had the largest a ttendance at Messy Church we have ever had, there is a new prominent noticeboard and as I write this we are preparing for the Sponsored Piano Play and Open Day. Alongside all these events we have regular services and activities.
The church is here to serve God, to be his witness and while sometimes it is possible to be over active, there is no question in my mind that for the church to have an impact it needs to make its presence felt in the community. I pray that through all the things we do, people will be drawn to Jesus, that people will want to take an interest in what the church stands for. If we donít come into contact with people, if people passing by never see anything happening in our buildings then they will never wonder what the church is about. The new windows and doors give an opportunity for people to see into the foyer, I hope that they will see something that speaks of the life of Christ and encourages them to come in.
We are thankful to all those who enable activities to take place in the name of the church. I pray that others will join us to share in Godís work and look forward to seeing where he will lead us in the months ahead
