Hallo Leute, WELCOME CHURCH BERLIN has officially arrived, wahoooo!! During this week we will be revealing our new logo and website. Keep your eye on our social media channels for the posts and big reveal. We will keep the Berlin Adventure site to share personal and church planting vlogs. However from now on please point people towards www.welcomechurch.de The site will be LIVE from Wednesday 1st July. What an adventure God has called us on. Starting a church in a new city and country, far away from everything we're familiar with. Oh and add to all that, during a global pandemic. But God is with us and doing some remarkable things in us. For example, we're planning on baptising our latest Berliner whos joined Welcome Church, praise God. We've been enjoying an extended time of laying foundations and team building. We're learning valuable lessons about being yoked to our older brother Jesus following His pace and rhythm. We've enjoyed precious moments of encountering God during our online church services and have been preaching through some values and biblical foundations. Whilst this is not the timeline we had planned for starting the church, we are learning to give thanks to God in all circumstances. This was supposed to be a big year of hosting outreach weekends and launches. Instead, it's a big year of going deeper into God and going public one small step at a time. We'll be enjoying a more prayerful and relational start to the church. With that in mind, we'd love you to join us in a season of prayer and fasting. At the end of August, we'll be having 21 days of prayer & fasting. A season of focussed prayer seeking God for Berlin and Welcome church. Thank you for your on going support.

Hallo Leute. Sorry for the delay in sending out this recent email and video update. I said we wouldn't do it monthly but we didn't anticipate we would leave it this long. I hope this informs you well to the latest news about the church plant and our Berlin adventure. A lot has happened since our last email prayer newsletter and we have lots to thanks to God for. Thank you God for the start of our Verein (Non-Profit charity), the board, setting up our legals (appropriate insurances, taxes etc), payroll for Pete's part-time employment, and a church bank account. This involved a lot of hard work, patience and perseverance with a big thanks going to Sabine Cowell for all her hard work. We have also finalised our church name and designed a really cool logo, big thanks goes to the talented George Gibson for that. These are all such exciting steps as we move towards a public launch for the church in the Autumn. Before COVID-19 we had been meeting in a new venue that has been a real blessing for the next stage of the church. We loved the first stages of meeting in our apartment, but it's exciting to now be out in the city with the occasional Berliner walking into a God encounter. Please keep an eye out for the launch of our new website, repost it and share it with all your friends. We were due to host 'Connect Global' an outreach weekend with New Ground's '20s and 30's. We had 20 delegates coming to see Berlin, taste cross-cultural mission, pray and meet the church plant. Obviously, this won't be happening now due to the Coronavirus however we will still be hosting an online prayer meeting next Saturday 2nd May, 20:00 DE (19:00 UK). We'd love you 'friends & family' of the Berlin church plant and the 'Connect Global' delegates to join us plus Dave & Liz Holden for a Zoom prayer meeting and some exciting updates. Please email contact@berlinadventure.tv if you would like to join us and we'll send you the Zoom video link.
