Well, it seemed to go very well. The sermon was well received. One woman came up to me at the end all smiles and excitement and said that she had been waiting for a sermon on that topic for ages and that God had just completely spoken to her. Yay! Also, my tutor was very encouraging - I really respect this man and it was great to have his affirming words.
The sharing of the sermon didn't really work as originally planned, I ended up actually doing most of the talk, but I think that was ok and as a whole the service flowed well.
A couple of friends came along to support me, who I don't think would call themselves Christian, and one of them whispered to me afterwards "I think you've found your home, haven't you?"
She could be on to something....
