A visit to Winchester Family Church
On July 22 we attended the Sunday evening prayer meeting at Winchester Family Church. The church building has a superb location in the heart of Winchester and is very easy to find (and to park).
The building was originally a large cinema with one big screen. Through the years it became a bingo hall and fell into a sorry state of repair. Eventually it was bought by the church and a beautiful restoration has just been completed. The church website describes the history of the church which dates back to 1928. The image of the church is fresh and non-chuchy, right down to its motto you can see on the sign here: something different!
As we moved into the building we were warmly greeted and shown the results of the renovation. The building has a very welcoming feel and one is drawn through into the large auditorium.
The meeting began with a worship time that was very appropriate for the occasion and led naturally into prayer.
We began praying for needs in the church, for different people and outreach opportunities.
There was a report of a lady who had been healed after extensive prayer from the church, and we prayed for a teenager there who had problems with a lung collapsing.
The meeting concluded with a very focussed time of prayer for NewDay, the Newfrontiers youth camping event which was about to begin. We prayed for some of the youth and for the leaders.
We left with that deep satisfied feeling of having spent time in the presence of God.
