June 2021

Our vision is to glorify God by being a bible centred, welcoming church family seeking to reach out with the gospel of Jesus in Wanstead. Although relatively affluent financially, it is a spiritually needy area. 25,000 people live there but less than 1% go to bible-centred churches in the area. We are a group of Christians seeking to bring the good news of Jesus to Wanstead and the surrounding area.

What’s been happening

Grace Church Tots has been able to expand to 20 families and there have been a few encouraging conversations. 

We put up a table on the High Street for the last couple of weeks and had a little gospel engagement. 

We held a vision/stewardship Sunday to remind ourselves of our part in God's great worldwide gospel plan. 

Trevor Archer, the London Director of the FIEC (Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches) visited us to help us in our continued thinking about joining the fellowship.

Give thanks

  • For being able to continue listening to Jesus' challenging teaching on discipleship in Luke 11.
  • For the encouraging numbers and conversations at Grace Church Tots.

Pray for our evangelism

  • For God to open doors at Grace Church Tots.
  • For more workers for God's harvest field in Wanstead.
  • For evangelistic conversations through putting out a table on Wanstead High Street.
  • For one-to-one evangelism with friends and family members.
  • For God to graciously grow the seed sown into a mighty harvest.

Pray for our edification

  • That we might know the certainty of what we have been taught about what it means to follow Jesus as we study Luke 9 – 13 on Sundays and midweek.
  • For ongoing reflection from our vision/stewardship meeting.
  • For wisdom on whether to join the FIEC or not.
  • For our practical needs (in particular, more musicians and a treasurer).
