Praise God! 23–25 June was a fantastic weekend away as people from 29 Co-Mission churches around London gathered on a field in Canterbury to worship, pray, learn from God’s word and enjoy fellowship.
The occasion was the Co-Mission REVIVE festival, with this being its 19th year running. We were so grateful to have over 2,000 people come together at the University of Kent. Being Christians in our corners of London sometimes leaves us feeling isolated, so to be reminded of God’s goodness in growing His church here in London for His glory was a real encouragement. The theme of the weekend was ‘Faithful through the Storm’. We reflected on this topic and heard from our main speakers: Matt Fuller (Pastor, Christ Church Mayfair), Ray Galea (Pastor, Fellowship Dubai) and Jack Sara (President, Bethlehem Bible College).
We heard from many others in multiple seminar sessions. You can listen to all these talks and seminars in the coming weeks on The Co-Mission Podcast (available on all podcast platforms). On the main stage Sunday morning, we also praised God for three new church plants: a revitalisation in Wembley, a plant in Hounslow, and a graft in Battersea on the Shaftesbury Estate. Please pray for these fledgling churches as they get off the ground and make inroads for the gospel in their communities.
