Thank you to the many of you who came to support and serve us on Sunday Evening and those of you who have faithfully supported us in prayer.
There is a difference in counting but we had between 93 & 97 people in what turned out to be a warm, friendly environment at the Harlow Playhouse.
There were many guests who had heard about the event from a number of sources and so please pray that we’re able to build friendships with those who God is calling us to build with.
I think there will be many more coffees in the next couple of weeks, praise God.
God was so good to us right from the outset and although the evening wasn’t without hiccups, the biggest being having our speaker Colin held up on the motorway!, God blessed us with His presence and made sure His kingdom was extended and everything ran smoothly.
It was great talking to people at the end about what God had done and spoken to them on the evening.
In particular if you were one of those people who met with God either in prophecy, prayer or healing please could you drop me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org as we’d love to hear more of what God did.
We’ll be in touch with more details soon but in the meantime know that God is good and God is for His people!

Thanks for your continued support through what has been a busy but exciting week.
We’re looking forward to Sunday evening’s launch of our new name and the start of our next gathering phase and are genuinely excited by what God has planned. Throughout the week we’ve been praying and seeking Him and feel God has talked about new people coming to faith as well as existing Christians, especially those new to the town and alone, being drawn into our launch team. In fact we’ve already received enquiries and are looking forward to making some new friends on Sunday evening.
Please do let anyone you know who lives in or around Harlow and isn’t connected to an existing Church know of the event as we’re really wanting to make the most of the opportunity God has presented us with to proclaim His unquestionable goodness and to further extend His kingdom in Harlow. It’s a 6pm start at the Harlow Playhouse, full details on our website www.harlowchurchplant.org
Prayer requests would be for the practicalities in putting on the meeting in a new venue to all go smoothly and for key people to be drawn to us. We’re already almost at 30 people before the meeting and would love for that number to be significantly higher as a result!
We’ll try to do a special update on the meeting early next week so until then God Bless and please keep praying for us

Hello again to most of you and welcome to those of you who have joined the group recently.
Since we last wrote we’ve been busy seeking God for the next steps in our adventure with Him and specifically preparing for our forthcoming ‘Launch Event’ on the 14th November. We feel that this event is a significant milestone for us as it both celebrates God’s faithfulness on the journey thus far whilst it also allows us to go more public and so be exposed to new people. If you'd like to see the advert it is on our homepage www.harlowchurchplant.org
Please pray that people who are new to Harlow or keen to explore the Christian faith hear of the event and are able to come along. We’ve been fortunate to have new enquiries and so already have new people who will be coming along to the ‘Launch Event’ so it’s an exciting times as we wait to see what God is doing.
Please could you also pray for protection for us as a group as we know we’re in a battle at present with a few illness’ and job problems amongst other things.
We’ll try to give you another update next week prior to the 14th but please know your support is very much valued.
Have a great week and keep smiling
Ben & Clare
