This morning we had an incredible time as we joined together for our first ever service as Redeemer Church Chester-le-Street!
As well as a powerful time of worship (including a new song, “Glory”, written by our very own Jon Cairns), we were blessed to be joined by Fusi Mokoena from City Hill Church in Dubai. Fusi shared with us from Acts 7:30-43 on “The Big Story” as we began our new sermon series called “Stories of Redemption” – looking at lives transformed by the love of Jesus. You can listen to his sermon again here.
We are delighted that Fusi will be in a position of apostolic oversight for us as a church, and we look forward to seeing more of him over the coming months and years!
After our service, it was also great to celebrate the launch of Redeemer Church with a shared lunch, as we spent time together as family. Gabby Knight baked a brilliant cake to celebrate the occasion, which was cut by Ali during the meeting.
Tonight, members of our church will also be joining together with other churches across Chester-le-Street at a joint service at Bethel (URC), to lift up our town and one-another to God. A great way to end a great day! We look forward to the journey God has in store for us as Redeemer Church.
