With great thanks to God, Tuesday and Wednesday nights were nothing short of amazing! Over the two nights, we welcomed over 550 people to St Bart’s and really had a great time singing, waving glow sticks, and catching up over delicious refreshments (the fruit, fruit punch, and fruit cake were amazing!). To pull off the night, there were a large number of volunteers who worked absolutely seamlessly – both nights flowed very smoothly. So thank you to all of the teams who made the night possible: the Car Park Team, Welcome Team, Sidespeople Team, Refreshments Team, Kids Team, Prayer Team, and also the Music Team! Thank you also to everyone who came along and brought some friends. I’ve already heard lots of amazing stories of conversations with people over refreshments. It was very encouraging to see so many people stay and also show interest in learning more about the life of our church.
Please do remember to take some Christmas flyers and share them with friends and family. People have shared with me that they had some guests say ‘yes’ to coming along to carols when they thought there was a very low likelihood of a positive response to the invitation! It helps us to always remember that our job is to pray and invite; God does the rest.
