WATCH THE VISION
HUB MOVEMENT STORY
Over a period of time God spoke to Nigel and Nicky Langford about planting a church into North East London. In January 2014 it seemed to pick up a pace and over the following six months God spoke really clearly on a number of occasions. One night in January 2014 Nigel was looking at Google maps and found Woodford zooming out at him. It had been a long day but still this was quite impacting. Just a few weeks later when watching the TV they were asking God about whether Woodford was the right area. On that particular day there was a tube strike and the reporter was stationed at South Woodford underground station. It started to feel more than a coincidence.
On 13th September 2014 Nigel and Nicky were travelling on the central line into London. As they chatted and wondered if God was really leading them to Woodford they noticed that the tube station for Woodford on the map was huge!
It continued this way and so Nigel & Nicky went to the Senior Leaders of their church in Chelmsford and shared their hearts. It resonated and so they intentionally moved toward being sent. In April 2015 and over the summer period a team of people along with the Langford’s moved up to South Woodford starting a small group (or Hub) in their lounge. In October 2015 Hub Church was commissioned to begin as a church plant.
As time is elapsing more Hubs are multiplying and that is how we see the church growing into whatever plans and purposes God has for us in the London area. We are convinced that when people meet Jesus the course of their lives and the course of history can and will change.
