I write this with our 20th anniversary as a church in mind. I literally can’t believe that Hencia and I have had the enormous privilege of leading this wonderful church for this long.
It seems as though only a few years ago that we launched out with four friends, not having a clue how things were going to look…
So, what stands out to me most?
Firstly, God has been so good to us. His faithfulness, presence, protection, provision and anointing has always been with us.
Secondly, we have wonderful people in our church. There are so many people who give of their lives, time, energy and money to what we’re a part of, simply because they love God’s church. We are so appreciative of every person God has added to the church, and we thank God for His activity in their lives.
Thirdly, our sense of mission. God joined us together for a purpose. We are to glorify Him as we worship and equip ourselves for working in God’s kingdom. Our church ‘motto’ says that we love, celebrate and serve. We have God, Christians and non-Christians in view here. Our church, newDAY, is centred around mission. We want to preach the good news of the gospel, make disciples and seek first the kingdom of God, together….
Thank you, a massive thank you, to every single person who has contributed in some way to who we are today as a church.
As I look ahead, we’re gonna continue with what God has given us, and press on for even more. Our future involves multiplication of everything we are, at every level, and our glory is in doing God’s will.
Lots of love, Greig and Hencia
