In May 2015, we celebrate 50 years of KT. It would be equally justified to celebrate 84 years, as the history of KT really started in 1931 – only we were ‘in exile’ from 1943 to 1965.
I believe that Kensington Temple is part of God’s covenant with the early Christians in Kensington. When I see us alongside other significant London churches it’s very clear to me how and why it works. I’m a great believer in the God of the generations – Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. When Kensington Temple was built, or Horbury Chapel as it was then called, was built, it was built as part of the covenant God made with those people when they dedicated their work to God. It came from their prayer meetings, from the people weeping, the sacrificial offerings that were taken. God had spoken to them. That was a covenant of his faithfulness and we are still living off the fruit of it today.
Here is a link to an article outlining the history of KT.
