Friday 9am – 9:30pm | Saturday 9am – 9:30pm | Sunday 9am – 6pm
Bethel Convention Centre, Kelvin Way, West Bromwich B70 7JW
Theme: United for Purpose
Scriptures: Numbers 29:1,7,12 | Acts 2:1-4; 38-42
We are thankful for the move of God upon our lives and our church in our journey to our current position. We also give God thanks for the leadership and our faithful members who have worked and committed to the advancement of the Kingdom of God through the church, in the past challenging years of economic austerity.
I am persuaded that our current position provides us with excellent opportunities to march forward as a corporate church and seize the promises that God has given to us. What are the opportunities? I believe that our post-Christian and post-modern society, with all its sophistication, is now more ready for the Gospel of Jesus Christ than ever before. We must therefore collectively turn our eyes outward on the harvest and reposition and realign our efforts and our resources to ensure we proclaim the Gospel and demonstrate its power and practicality through our mission and ministry efforts. Simply put we must become even more united for our purpose than ever before.
We will always achieve more as a compact and focused unit, than when we attempt tasks by ourselves, locally, regionally or even as a corporate body within the United Kingdom. We must continue to identify the synergy that flows from collaborative working at all levels and in all theatres of kingdom work and witness.
