Chris and Josephine Hatch, New City Church England

(Chris and Josephine with friends)

Chris and Josephine Hatch moved to London, England in 2005 to work primarily among the immigrant communities of West London.  After 5 years of assisting in a South Asian church, they moved to Shepherd’s Bush to plant New City International Presbyterian Church. By the grace of God, New City has grown to be a healthy multiethnic congregation with 15 different nationalities represented and a strong outreach to the poor. As Chris and Josephine continue their HMA in Chicago, please pray for Chris who is pursuing his PhD in missiology and for their children Rahel and Kaleb who are both facing times of transition. Also, pray for New City International Presbyterian Church in west London as Marcus Gadson and Oong Lee lead the congregation this year. Finally, please pray for Israel Kolade, who is a young, Nigerian-background, member of New City in London. He recently came under care of the presbytery in London in order to begin the steps needed to become a pastor.  Ask the Father to guide his steps as he prepares for the ministry.
