Today, I leld worship at Sutton at hone church a small methodist chapel near Dartford. The service went well. The small congregation whislt mostly older, were not afraid to take on new challenges and there was a clear sense of reverence and dedication. it is such a shame that the congregation is so small, and I worry for the future with seemingly no youngstersf, or at least not enough.
For the first time today I felt like a preacher. i had to come up with some quick intercessory prayers and whilst presentin them was able to offer some extemporary prayer.
A big plus for the church is the organist who provides real muscial leadership.
Mhy nezt outing will be ast Swanscombe where I will be preaching the sermon
