April 2020 Video Update
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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join us and we'll send you the Zoom video link.
