JOURNEY TO A NEW CHURCH FAMILY
My husband Geoffrey and I had been members of a longstanding and well established evangelical church in central London called Westminster Chapel.
I was baptised there, we were married there and we both had established roles within the church and my stepdaughter Nicole was comfortable in her Sunday school.
Some years earlier, Geoffrey received a prophecy from 2 separate individuals one of which was a visiting Minister, that Geoffrey
would continue the Lords ministry work in a different church.
Fast forward to August 2015. Pastor Joe, invited Geoffrey and I to join COGIC Watford and out lined his vision for growing this branch and we were very excited and wanted to be part of this.
I knew that we would leave Westminster at some point, but I could not envisage how this would transpire.
November 2015 - tinged with some sadness but with much love and blessings, we said goodbye to our friends at Westminster.
From the very moment we joined COGIC, we felt much love and part of an extended family and we all found the transition so smooth and seamless.
We find it particularly refreshing that men and women are given the opportunity to offer prayers and give the word. It is also gratifying, that the youth are also given a voice and are able to share and run the service on Youth Sundays. These opportunities were certainly not available at Westminster.
In the short time we have been at COGIC, we have been touched and moved by the testimonies given by individuals, and we firmly believe that the spirit of the Lord is with us and is guiding all our footsteps to spread the Gospel and grow the church. I have to say that I really admire how the church family come together and participate in all aspects to assist in the running of the church.
We are very much looking forward to be obedient servers of the Lord and being part of the COGIC Sanctuary expansion.
