Christ for the Nations

Kevin Wren who works for South Asian Concern joined us for our morning service today and also preached.

He made the interesting observation that while many churches called themselves multicultural, what they were actually was multi-ethnic. While emphasising that Jesus Christ has come for the whole world, he also emphasised the importance of allowing South Asians to continue their own culture when they began to worship Jesus. He challenged us as to what our attitudes were. He also suggested that South Asians were often more willing to talk about Jesus than white British.

After the service Kevin manned a stall and spoke to members of the congregation about his own work (see here) and about their experiences, as well as offering literature.

Hopefully, his suggestions will make us wiser and more sensitive as we seek to share our faith.
