Northwest Churches are working together

Three of London’s churches in the northwest are working together to create a shared community and to help in the area. Beginning in the spring of 2014, churches there began coming together to establish an active relationship that is focused on working together and building unity. The results have been very positive, and good things are getting done together.

3 pastors from the NW got together to shoot an encouraging video
Seated are pastors Jude St. John (WLA),
Rick Boyes (Gateway) and Charles Stone (West Park).

In August of 2015, the senior pastors of West London Alliance, West Park, and Gateway gathered to pray and brainstorm ways to move forward together. The resulting plan included:

  • Creating a video that affirms the group’s unity, including with the residents of the area.
  • Presenting the video at each church on Sunday, November 15th.
  • Creating a prayer card that asks church attenders to pray for each church, and for our shared community.

The participation has been growing, with lots of excitement and interest at each of the churches.

In October of 2015, there were 6 townhouse fires in the Limberlost area. The three churches — who were already involved in this area — were now even more able to respond. Working with the North West London Resource Centre (NWLRC, located in the Sherwood Forest Mall) the churches have been able to serve these families and to help rebuild lives.

These northwest churches are continuing their efforts, and will meet again in January to map out their next steps for working together.

Here at Churches Together London we applaud these good, shared efforts, and encourage all churches to reach out to other churches in their neighbourhoods.
