Street Invasion (Werrington)
Street Invasion was the epic missional project all across the city, if you want to know how it went down in Werrington - PLEASE READ ON
The week was full of Adventure and Provision, seeing God lead us in the impossible, growing in their faith muscles.
THE TEAM WHO LED AND VOLUNTEERED WERE AMAZING.
"I was just reading Exodus 3, looking at the journey that Moses took with God and we need to ask where along the journey we find ourselves. Moses was a man under a death sentence, as a result of his birth and as a result of his own actions. We, too, are under the death sentence of sin!
God intervened in Moses's life in 'an irresistible way', capturing his attention through a bush of flames. I just want to remind you that when God speaks, he speaks to us by name and this demands a response from us, just as it did from Moses. God commissioned Moses with his life's work - to lead God's people out of Egypt. This working shepherd must have felt under-equipped for the job! I encourage you to live out God's purpose for your life, even though we may feel ordinary and unremarkable, for, like Moses, we are called TO BE right here, right now, for such a time as this."
During Street Invasion, these people made a response to Christ. 8 people made first time commitments to Christ and 2 people made re-commitments to Christ.

'COUNT ON IT THERE'S MORE JOY IN HEAVEN OVER ONE SINNER'S RESCUED LIFE...'
THIS IS WHAT WE GOT UP TO:
- Cup a soups and rolls (Meals on wheels) at the Skate Park in Werrington: Giving about 20 soups and rolls away.
- Giving away Ice lollies and drinks on a very hot day (too many to remember were given out). Imagine a very large bag filled with iced goodies.
- Washing peoples cars for free (washed about 15 cars) even running down the road to wash a man’s car outside his home.
- Dropping leaflets through peoples doors about the evening stuff (Someone wants to get involved because of the leaflet they received).
- Painting all the benches in Cuckoos Hollow in Werrington- I recommend having a look, even underneath.
- Running a youth Group each evening, having lots of fun.
- Sending young people in the City Centre to do practical evangelism deeds.
- God stopped the (flooding) rain for us to continue our work when we prayed.
- Young people going out into our local area.
- And loads more...
Difficulties we had
- Lots of Building troubles.
- BBC Cambridge were going to do a video article on us but cancelled.
- Car breakdowns and problems.
- Building problems.
- Weather conflicts.
But to have 10 people who want to venture closer to God, that is soooooooo worth the trouble.
