I was a young student in search of an Anglican church in the beautiful town of Cambridge shire in England .One Sunday morning I set out to find a place of worship being new in town with little or no friends and definitely no family. I was in search of a church family that I can call my own. And being brought up as an Anglican, (Episcopal), I was looking to join an Anglican church.
I found a gigantic building that looks like it used to be a cathedral judging from the size. It looked deserted but I went in and found that it was partitioned, so I went from one room to the other and eventually found a room where about 5or 6 people were having prayer meeting. I stayed with them enjoyed the fellowship and had a cup of coffee after the meeting.
However as I was leaving a gentleman that led the meeting said “we hope to see you again if ever “I do not know why he said this and I pray that if I judged him wrongly may God forgive me. I wish he did not say that, because I really did want to fellowship with them, but I was discouraged by
what he said because I felt that if he really wanted me to come back he would not have said see you again if ever .
The following Sunday I went to another church, a different denomination near my hostel and I felt welcomed and the Reverend of the church came to visit me in my little room at the YMCA.
As I continue to grow in my Christian walk I have found that our approach to new converts or Newcomers to our church matters a lot as to whether or not they come again ever or they stay and, make the church their home church.
