Harborne Connect

The Lord kept the best till the last week! “I was really hoping someone would come” was one immediate response last Monday evening! Another woman got her diary out and requested an appointment to see team members on the afternoon of Monday, 30th. Lots of interest in joining Alpha in January including one man who invited Peter and Paul into his lounge. After describing himself to be an atheist, he discussed scripture for 45 minutes and then signed up for the Alpha Course! There were lots more positive reports!

We have been visiting homes in Albany, Emerson, Regent, Serpentine, Station and Wentworth Roads over the last 4 weeks. Each pair of visitors called upon about 20 homes each week. Mostly people were prepared for the visit thanks to the ‘Vicar’s letter’ sent in advance, and some were looking out for us! Responses varied from “Not interested”; “I’m atheist!”; “I’m Muslim and go to Mosque” to “No, I go to St Peter’s, though I’d call myself a social member!” but in the vast majority we had good friendly conversations. We gently tried to encourage people to talk about Jesus and invite them to “Back to Church Sunday”, Toddlers, The Crossway etc, as appropriate. Each week, virtually everyone seemed to come back with something positive. Please pray that the seeds sown would germinate & grow! We long for many to be introduced to, and become friends of, Jesus.

Every member of the regular team has really enjoyed the opportunity to talk the talk and to meet people so if you would like to know more about this ministry of Harborne Connect and would consider joining the next team which starts on Monday, November 4th, please contact John Cheatle 427 5362 or thecheatles@googlemail.com Training is available to encourage you!
