We give thanks to Derek, Helen and their family for all they have given over the last 21 years in the Parish of Brentford.

Sunday, 30th April was Derek’s last one with us.  Thank you for all that came to say goodbye.  We had a wonderful lunch afterwards – more details and photos to follow!

At his last talk, speaking from Isaiah 62:6-10, he gave us an inspiring message to be a church on the lookout, a church looking outwards, bringing blessing to the whole community and becoming a house of prayer for all nations.

He reminded us that God wants the church to have a reputation, a reputation of blessing.  There are more  parties to come, celebrations of what God is growing, of His hope for the future and all centred on the  call to follow Jesus.
