David and I joined the large and growing congregation at Wesley’s Chapel and shared in a service packed with activity and full of spirit. I’m told that members of the congregation have direct links with over 30 different countries and this was reflected in those who took part in the service. Young people with links to
David preached, reminding us that faith and actions go hand in hand. I shared prayers of intercession and we both helped with Communion. Following the service we joined with the congregation outside the church in what can only be described as a baptismal feast. It was also the first time I’ve had lunch in a grave-yard!
Much to the surprise of those welcoming us to Methodist Central Hall,
Methodist Central Hall is dynamic church working at the heart of our nation’s political world and it is involved in a wide range of ministries. Healing services take place every month and a large team of ministers and lay members support this work. This is an important ministry that is clearly valued by the many people attending the service.
I had the opportunity to preach about Jesus’ ministry of healing and prayer and David presided at Communion. Unfortunately I had to rush off in order to catch the train back to Leeds so I wasn’t able to stay after the service to thank those who had welcomed us so warmly, so I do so now through these web pages and apologise for my hasty exit.
