Upcoming meetings for 2019:
June 27th - Brian Greenaway "The Lies We Are Told" Brian is an ex-president of the Hell's Angels. A life of violence and drug abuse resulted in four times in prison, where he found Christ. After his release and time at Bible College, Brian served as a London City missionary before spending 33 years in the ministry working mainly with prisoners and alongside prison chaplains. Brian has spoken throughout the UK and internationally. He is the author of three books.
July 25th - Roy Taylor "The Dynamite in 1 Corinthians" Roy was an Assemblies of God minister for more than 30 years, with 8 years mission work in Spain. He pioneered churches in the UK and has preached the gospel of Jesus Christ in Africa, Europe and India (where an orphanage of hundreds of children was established and supported for many years, and a school built). He is no longer in a pastoral role but is continuing to serve the Lord and seeking to press ahead in this time of a 'Spiritual Changing Wineskin'.
