The First Gathering
The Gathering got off to a flying start on Sunday afternoon despite the dark and the damp weather.
We are exploring the fruits of the Spirit and this month we were learning about 'Patience'. About how God is patient with us, how we need to be patient with Him and how we should be patient with those around us. There was an interactive prayer station, where we were invited to plant seeds and to think of and pray for 3 people who we need to be more patient with as we planted the three seeds. Seeds take time to grow, and as we water them every couple of days, we should pause and pray for those people and the situations.
Claire also gave a short and clear teaching about patience as well as using video clips and on-screen visuals to help us think about the topic. Matt and Becky lead the sung worship.
God's presence was very apparent and many people were moved by the event.
The next Gathering is happening on Sunday 23rd February 2020 from 3:30pm-4:30pm at St Augustine's church hall. Find out more about The Gathering here.
