We are thankful to God that so many turned up for our first anniversary on Sunday 1st October. In the last year we have met a great many people in Solihull and well over a hundred different people have visited a Sunday service at least once. Forty-nine people came to worship, share fellowship together, and give thanks to God for all that has been achieved in bringing the good news of Jesus Christ to the people of Solihull. 

 

We used the occasion to put full-page ads in the local papers and invite as many people as we could who we had made contact with over the last year. The visitors included Gary and Linda Kendrick from Tates Creek Presbyterian Church in Kentucky, USA. Tates Creek PCA was planted by Rev. Al Lutz in 1984 and has been very supportive of our work in Solihull. In an expression of fellowship in Christ, Gary and Linda delivered a letter of greeting from the elders of Tates Creek. Linda presented a banner she had made for our meeting, with the words "Life in Christ" the clear and simple message.

The occasion was a good time to welcome nine adults and their children as the first members of Solihull Presbyterian Church.

Dr. John Scott of Chelmsford Presbyterian Church was the visiting speaker and delivered an excellent sermon on John 14:6 with the main headings:

 

  • how we lost the way
  • how the way can be found
  • experiencing the unique Jesus

There were some good conversations about the message with some of the visitors afterwards.

a feast
Of course there was excellent food too. It was a great day which all of us enjoyed. It is better to worship with 49 people than with the 15-20 we usually are. Imagine what the multitudes in glory will be like! However, our work still continues carrying out the Great Commission. We plant and water as best we can, but God gives the growth. So we look to him to do just that for his name's sake.
