An anniversary gives us another opportunity to remember, and on 15-16 September 2018 the members and friends of West Park Church, Wolverhampton, recalled and celebrated God’s goodness since the founding of the church 50 years ago.
In those days it was called Merridale Church and was in a different part of the city. Much has happened in those years, including a new location, outreach, conversions, but always with God’s inerrant Word central to all, and preaching deemed to be of vital importance in our worship.
During the weekend, Geoff Thomas preached Christ-exalting sermons. The history of the church was briefly recounted. Fellowship and friendships were enjoyed over a meal. We rejoiced in God’s gracious leading over the years and prayed not only for God’s grace and help but also that, as a church, we will remain faithful to the gospel and be enabled to stand fast in the years which remain.
