Yesterday seemed to be a good day for HTGP.
In the afternoon we held Making@Church.
After a massively encouraging first event we were surprised to see only one family attend. That one family have loved it so much they have come, on their own, for the last 3 months. Yesterday 3 more families joined them which is not exciting and impressive. I had got to the stage where I was genuinely starting to ‘feel’ for the sole family as it can seem quite awkward with only a few people there.
Yesterday we told the story of Noah and the lego creations are pretty impressive. Even the one with rocket launchers on the front!
In the evening we held 18:01 and Katie, who is on placement with the East Greenwich Parish before going down the ordination route, spoke incredibly well on the Parable of the Talents. Her message may be heard here.
Again we had a good attendance and to seems that the 5 new people, all be it one family, are coming each week (twice yesterday) and it felt like a bit of a key day when a corner may have been turned. We are now very visible and I wonder what the community thinks is happening on a Sunday night inside our bit of a goldfish bowl.
