REVIVAL MONTH IN GROUP 4

The Circuit Revival Month is here again.  This time we will gather for worship at the Greasby Centre, Greasby Road, CH49 3AT on Saturday, 12th May from 7.30 p.m.  The theme is “Who is this Jesus?”  (John 14:6)

Worship will involve:

-          Praise, celebration and testimonials

-          A musical band will lead.

-          Preaching the Gospel. Marcus Torchon will be the preacher.

-          Prayer invitation and response.

We will pray for each other.

What precisely is required of Group 4 (West Kirby, Greasby & Irby)?  You simply need to advertise it, spread the word, come along and bring a friend and be prepared to worship in a strange place.
