Christians of All Sorts to Gather in Europe

I found this post over at Christian Today this morning and thought it was really cool.

“Hope will launch in its new form as part of Europe’s largest gathering of Christians, an all-night prayer and praise event hosted by the Redeemed Christian Church of God which expects more than 25,000 people to attend.

Hosted by Pastor Agu Irukwu of Jesus House, the Hope launch will be part of the Festival of Life on 23 July at the ExCel Centre in London.

The General Overseer, Pastor EA Adeboye is also keen to pray over and commission Hope. The event signifies a move towards a wider involvement in Hope from across church denominations and cultural divides and will strengthen partnerships with the black majority church.

Pastor Agu Irukwu said: “Hope is one of the tributaries that will flow into this river of revival. There is a feeling that God is in this and that it is actually larger than we all think. There is a real desire to do something – working together, black and white majority churches, urban based missions and missions that are out in the country.”” – “Hope to launch at Europe’s largest gathering of Christians”

25,000 people all meeting up to spend the night at an overnight prayer function? Wow, looks like there is hope for the world after all. This is really a great thing to see, especially with the endless reports of dwindling faith that are constantly being brought to my attention. These are all Christians too, meaning that everybody who falls under the title of being Christian is welcome to attend. By the sounds of it there will be quite a mixture of faiths too, which is a great thing!
