Billy Graham Evangelistic Association to host evangelistic summits across UK
Christian leaders will meet in four locations across the UK to discuss the challenges and opportunities for evangelism in the nation.
The Summits of evangelization are free – although registration is required – and are hosted by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) to encourage UK religious leaders “in these uncertain times” and to equip Christians to share the Gospel.
The first summit will take place in Glasgow on October 12, followed by Liverpool on October 14, Cardiff on October 19 and London on November 15.
Speakers include Dr Hugh Osgood, Moderator of the Free Churches Group and President of Churches Together in England, theologian Dr Amy Orr-Ewing, Coptic Archbishop of London, Archbishop Angaelos and Evangelist Dr Crawford Loritts.
“With people all around us looking for answers to the pressures of life, now is not the time for the church to hide its light,” said Dr Osgood.
“We need to experience the difference that comes from having a relationship with God and proclaiming that Jesus Christ is the answer.”
BGEA President Reverend Franklin Graham said churches across the UK are uniquely placed to share the gospel.
“We cannot remain silent. We know that Jesus Christ is the hope of the world, and he has asked us to come out and share this truth with others,” he said.
“The need is urgent and time is running out. We all need to ask ourselves: what am I doing to bring hope and care to a world that is shaken?
