Concert All Soul's Church - Travel to Brockworth

The Centurymen gave two mini-concerts at All Soul's Church Langham Place this morning in the 9:30 AM and 11:30 AM services. Check out this evangelical church of England:

The church really has a heart for the lost and are ministering to the people of London. All Soul's is mission-minded and multi-cultural. Imagine a pipe organ with a drummer, guitar, complete string section, a worship leader and two female vocalists. AWESOME!

Hugh Palmer, the senior pastor, is very Bible believing and teaches very practical Biblical truths for everyday living. He really understood the challenges of the church today and spoke to his congregation and challenged them to take their faith to the streets...every day.

The concert today included, "My Tribute", arr. Red/Joubert - Soloist: Renay Joubert; "O God, Our Help in Ages Past" arr. Red; "Every Time I Feel the Spirit" arr. Red/Joubert.

It rained on and off all day, at times it was pretty heavy. The bus ride from London to Brockworth was about 2 hours. A beautiful drive. Here are some pics from today's concert and travel to the rolling hillsides of Brockworth, Glouchestershire.

Here's the drive to Brockworth, Glouchestershire:

In the hotel we put in about 3 hours of practice time. Here they are working on some new music.

Today one of our dear Centurymen, Joe Walters, from St. Simon's Island, Georgia, became ill this morning and we had to leave him in the hospital in London. We're hoping he can rejoin the group in a few days. Joe has served The Centurymen as historian and is a charter member of the group. Please pray for Joe's speedy recovery. We're all so sad to have to leave one of our group behind in a strange city. The travel agency has been very thoughtful and provided an agent to stay with Joe until he get's back on his feet.

We love you Joe!

Prayer requests for today:

  • Joe Walters speedy recovery,

  • A little less rain for travel,

  • Monday July 7th Concert - Central Hall Methodist Church, Coventry,

  • All those who will hear the word of God, may their hearts be softened.
