13 people, who told us they were not part of any church, said they prayed the salvation response prayer, when I spoke at Dartford Community Church’s Carol Service earlier today. It was a superb event, with loads more in the congregation than when I spoke there two years ago. It was a great pleasure to be with Quinton and Emma Handscombe, who lead the church. They were both in the band at DCC today. They are a multi-talented and super friendly couple who I got to know when they met at Christ Church London. I also had a lovely time catching up with Quinton’s sister Cressida, another star from Christ Church London days. It was great to be back at the Mick Jagger Centre, where the church has met for many years, and so encouraging to hear about how the church has grown in size during the lockdown. They did a great job this morning. A strong invitational event. Wonderful to also see Al & Jane Gregory who have been tremendous servants to that church and to the Newfrontiers family.
