This Sunday 2nd November all our London congregations are going to the movies!
Instead of our regular services, we will all be watching the “Son of God” movie from 10.30 -12.30. This movie has not yet been release on the big screen in the UK , so its a great opportunity. Have a look at the movie trailer below, grab some popcorn on your way in on Sunday morning, and take a seat to view this powerful telling of the story of the life of Jesus.
And it’s FREE, so share the invite with friends, and we’ll see you on Sunday at the movies!
VENUE CHANGE FOR HAMMERSMITH: Stratford & Slough will be in their regular venues, but the Hammersmith congregation will be at the Hammersmith CineWorld cinema in King’s Street. Directions here.
- The closest underground station is Ravenscourt Park, and there is plenty of free parking in the area.
- There will also be great childcare for all ages during the screening.

Wow, what an amazing Super Sunday we had this past weekend in London, when our three congregations met together in Hammersmith. It was a huge privilege to have J John speaking and equipping the church to share the Good News of our Saviour. If you missed it, you can listen to his message here – well worth it!
“Every Nation London exists to glorify God by making disciples and making a difference in the city, on the campuses, in our communities, and in the nations through church planting.”

Warning: Don’t read this and listen to this if you just want a “get happy” message…
Go and make disciples of all nations… how?
The “pass it on pattern” is an attitude and action that every disciple must embrace to see Jesus’ great commission fulfilled through their lives. What God does in you is never just for you. Its through you to others. In this message I look at this pattern and some practical application of what it takes to “pass on the Gospel by which you are saved.” Here you will learn, amongst other things:
- Not to “leave it to the mamma’s”
- Don’t pass on the “cousin’s”…
- Don’t pass the banana…
- How to leave an inheritance for you children’s children.
- That Sodom and Gomorra were not husband and wife…
- What the true Gospel is…
Listen to the message here, and make yourself available to “pass it on.”
In the message I butchered the Jamaican accents in one of the illustrations, so below is a minute of June helping me with how do do Jamaican properly!
- I thank God, whom I serve, as my forefathers did, with a clear conscience, as night and day I constantly remember you in my prayers.… 5 I have been reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also. 2 Tim 1:3-5
- Prov 13:22 A good man leaves an inheritance for his children’s children
- Judges 2:8-10 Judges 2:8-10 – After the Joshua generation had possessed the promised land, we read the following: 8 Now Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the Lord, died when he was one hundred and ten years old. 9 …. 10 When all that generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation arose after them who did not know the Lord nor the work which He had done for Israel.
- 1 Corinthians 15:1-3 … I want to remind you of the gospel (the glad tidings of salvation) I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. 2 By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.
This is a week of prayer & fasting for our congregation in London Hammersmith. We ask everyone to “choose your fast” – either skipping meals for a day, or 2 or 3, or skip some meals, switch off the TV – choose to STOP doing something and draw closer to God for Him to fill you. As a congregation we are hearing the Spirit say:
- You have lived a long good life, but there is much land still to take…
- Live for my glory in the city…
- “Fill your horn with oil; Go, I am sending you… (1 Sam
Fasting is a “consecration”; a setting yourself aside for God. Consecration is what you do today, for God to do amazing things that He has promised tomorrow: in you, through you, and for you.
Like Joshua, who one day stood at the banks of the Jordan looking across at the land he had longed for and looked for again for over 40 years of wandering in the wilderness. Now it was time to cross over. They didn’t have a bridge – they needed a miracle. “So Joshua said to the people: Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things amongst you.” (Joshua 3v5)
If you are standing on the banks of something “new” that you have longed for, then consecrate yourself with us this week.
Fasting is not a duty, but a DESIRE. A desire for more than we have. A desire that says: This world is not enough. A desire that expresses a spiritual hunger and thirst that cannot be satisfied with anything or anyone is this world.
By the way: Personally, I don’t think that fasting should be seen as something to do only when you want to/need to add some muscle to getting a prayer answered. I don’t think fasting is something we add to prayer when prayer alone doesn’t seem to be enough. When Jesus’ disciples couldn’t cast out a deaf and dumb spirit, and they asked Him why they couldn’t but He could, He answered: “This kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.” (Matthew 17). But did Jesus go away and fast before He prayed for her? No, not right there. But it seems that He had a discipline of fasting and prayer. He demonstrated a desire and delight in the Father, that drew Him as the Son of Man to seek out God the Father in prayer and fasting. Fasting is more a spiritual disciple aiding a desire, rather than being something to add to prayer when prayer alone doesn’t seem to work.
