I have now had two Sundays at the Chapel of Grace. The congregation is growing as the Semester gets under way. Around 900 on 2nd Sept and 1700 on 9th. It can get up to 2500 when all the students are back. I am going through the 9 blessings anounced by Christ in Matt 5. Last Sunday was “Blessed are those who mourn”.
My reception has been very generous and they cope with my strange accent quite well although some of the younger students have trouble understanding me. I cannot log all the friendships renewed and the kindnesses I have received.
The new committee are vigorous and there is a spirit of unity and progress around the place.
