Church News — July 2024

Dear Church Family, 

After saying our goodbyes to David Gamester last Sunday, our new Director of Operations and Staff, Stuart Cox has now started his role at King’s. Stuart will be spending his weekdays with us and returning back to Crawley at the weekends, and along with his wife Charlotte and their four children will be relocating permanently when they find a home and schools. Please continue to pray for them during this transition period. 

Leadership Conference
What a joy it was to host the New Ground International Leadership Conference last month! For those who served in any capacity or hosted delegates, we are so grateful to you. If you’d like to listen to the main sessions and seminars from the conference, click here. We are hosting next year’s event as well — so put the dates in your diary: 12-14th June!

Building Update 
We are pleased to say that the work on the roof has now started! Bear with us as there may be some additional noise and disruption over the next couple of months.  

Summer holidays
During the summer holidays, our children’s work for ages 1-11 will be continuing as usual, except for 4th August where we’ll be having an all-age meeting for an hour with worship and baptisms before heading to Hampden Park to have a picnic lunch together. Our 11-14’s will not be meeting on Sundays in August, but will be gathering for various activities during the summer break after they get home from Newday. Thursday Church will be continuing to run as normal throughout the school holidays.

Dates for the diary:

  • Friday 12th July — United Women’s event: all women welcome! Sign-up here.
  • Tuesday 15th July — Bible School, 7.30pm
  • Sunday 21st July — Sunday evening meeting, 7pm
  • Sunday 4th August — Baptisms and lunch in the park! (We’ll head to Hampden Park after our Sunday meeting, so bring a picnic and extra to share)
  • September 8th to September 14th — We’ll be starting our term with a week of prayer, more details to follow next month. 
  • Sunday 8th September — We’ll be praying for Bosun (Elder), Wendy & Nailza (Deacons) and Carl (leading Grace Community Church as an Elder) as they step into their new roles in our church family.

With all our love,

Oli
On behalf of the Elders and Deacons
