New beginnings

Passion Church Launch

Do not remember the former things,
Nor consider the things of old.
Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert.
— Isaiah 43:18-19 (NKJV)

Last Sunday, July 14th, saw the launch of Passion Church Norwich 😇

After four beautiful years of preparing, planning, learning, correcting and connecting, the time finally came for God’s will to be done in Taverham. And what an evening it was! I was totally overwhelmed by the commitment from all those who were serving, how they self-organised and worked together seamlessly to make Passion’s first ever meeting an outstanding success. I was truly humbled to see these mighty men and women of God step up - whether they were on the worship team, welcoming people in, doing those technical things that no one seems to notice until they go wrong or making teas and coffees ☕️

We had way more people there than I could ever have hoped, dreamed or imagined and it’s been clear from the beginning that God IS in this. We’ve faced opposition, there’s been frustration, stress and uncertainty, but when I (finally) decided to stop doing things in my own strength Holy Spirit totally took over and made everything simple. We rest in His love and the rest becomes easy 😀

So Passion Church is now very much a reality, and I literally cannot wait until our next meeting in August. Last night was very real, not perfect, just real. And that’s totally how I’d imagined it. I pray that our next meeting is just as wonderful 🙏🏻 Thank you.
