Last Sunday, 8 June, the 2014 Transformation Thurrock Tour returned to the the United Reformed Church in Bradleigh Avenue, Grays, for the second part of the presentation that has now taken place in many fellowships of all persuasions across the borough.
Being Pentecost Sunday, there was an emphasis of this concurrent theme throughout, as the Day of Pentecost has immense implications for the church: 3000 were added that day! Imagine baptising that lot?!! And because Christians celebrate Pentecost every day by virtue of the presence of the Holy Spirit in their lives, then that should overspill into our discipleship and our seeking of the people of peace whom God is preparing in our communities.
We should be expecting our missional endeavours to result in rapid multiplication!
Please find below ten of the slides from the presentation done at the URC, which was adapted (once again) to fit in with their service structure and schedule. Slides followed which had on them prayers of blessing (taken from the Keep On Praying And Bless book) for Grays Thurrock so everyone could join in.
Right at the bottom you can see pictures of the after-session in the church hall where we received feedback from the prayer and discussion groups in the service, and the resulting sheet of gathered words, pictures, actions and the prophetic.
See previous posts, look under ‘News’ – or click on the links to the left of your screen – for specific aspects of these talks (each one has been subtly different!) and see below for how to book if you’d still like to have the TT Tour visit your fellowship.
The TT Tour’s next stop is at the RCCG House of the Lord, South Ockendon, which meets at Belhus Park Golf Club, on Sunday 15 June.
