Christians ‘go behind the music’ in England


NORTHAMPTON, England — More than 120 Christians from 13 British congregations attended an evening of singing hosted by the Church of Christ in Northampton, England.
Graham Fisher, editor of The Christian Worker , distributed copies of the 2013 directory of Churches of Christ in the United Kingdom.
Richard Sharpe and Kunle Orekoya, two elders of the Northampton church, led the hymns discussed by Rushford, with Pepperdine University’s International Program in London.
Frank Worgan, a 91-year-old minister for the Corby Church of Christ, led the closing prayer.
“It was one of the best evenings I have spent in a long time,” said Trevor Williams, an evangelist from Stapleford who made a three-hour round trip to participate in the event. “I think we are forgetting to sing for the sheer joy of it, quite apart from praising our maker.”

    I went on a mission trip to Northampton in 1984, we helped conduct a VBS there. My Northampton brothers and sisters in Christ will always hold a special place in my heart. I am so happy to see the congregation thriving.
