Biggest crowd we have had at ‘regular’ church yesterday…..approaching the size of the crowd we had at our launch.
A lot (lot) of new folk…coming back and staying.
We ran out of communion elements….we had to open up the back doors…..
It does make you feel overwhelmed. I have always been a pastor of a church hovering around the 80-100 mark, and I have known everyone…..well.
I still make it my business to introduce myself to new people, and to shake hands at the door.
But we are actually utilising the systems we have put in place now. Pastoral care leaders etc.
A loss of feeling like I know everyone and what is happening in people’s lives.
But as we grow, and continue to grow, this is only going to become more so. Interesting times ahead.
