A Special Invitation – 5th Anniversary of Grace Baptist Partnership

| December 12, 2014 | 1 Comment

Dear Partners in the Gospel,

When church-goers in the Victorian era heard Joseph Parker preach we are told they said, “Isn’t Joseph Parker wonderful?”  Whereas, when they heard Charles Spurgeon preach they said, “Isn’t Jesus Christ wonderful?”

When we meet in early 2015 to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Grace Baptist Partnership it is not to trumpet our accomplishments or to heap praise on our leaders. Rather we will meet to give an opportunity for those who have supported the work of the Partnership through their prayers and finances along with those who have been supported by our efforts in church planting and revitalisation to glorify God for the great things HE has done. Here is the plan.

The Venue

Regent HallThe service will be held at Regent Hall, Oxford Street, London on Saturday, 7th of February from 3:00 – 5:00 pm.

The venue will seat more than 500 people so there should be adequate room for everyone desiring to attend.

The Service
The service will feature singing, prayers, testimonies, Bible readings and a message from God’s word delivered by Conrad Mbewe from Kabwata Baptist Church in Lusaka, Zambia.

Many of you will already be familiar with the ministry of Pastor Mbewe and his church. Those of you Conrad-Mbewe-Preachingwho are not may want to watch this brief video in which Don Carson interviews him about his life and ministry.

I do trust you will join us for this special afternoon of worship and fellowship. It would aid us in our planning if you will let us know how many will be in attendance from your church.

Warm regards in Christ,
Barry King

General Secretary

    Barry,
    I have just resigned owing to ill health and age as a trustee of Carmel Chapel Fleckney Leicestershire–I believe you used the Chapel once a few years ago, for a commissioning service. You may be interested to know the few who met there have cease to do and so and the Chapel stands empty–It is the only GB place of worship in South Leicestershire.
    The Trustees are the–GB Trust Corporation Sec. Eric Cousins–In tending my resignation I requested that you be informed of the situation, and be asked to investigate the possibility of re-starting the work. Fleckney is a fairly large village with a Cof E Church a BU Church and a “Happy Clappy” group meeting in the Village Hall but NO witness to the Reformed Faith.
    I grew up in the village and it was the Church meeting in Carmel Chapel that I and my family were associated with. I was baptised there (Jan16th–1965) and it was the church then meeting there that examined my “Call to the Ministry” (March 1966) and who-as we said in those far off days (60yrs ago)who “Sent me out into the Ministry” but more, I have more than a passing concern that the witness to the Doctrines of Grace be maintained in the village as clear testimony to the Truth as it is in Jesus–
    I may add that it is declining numbers, sickness, and old age are the main reasons for this sad situation.
    I leave it with you to think this over and act as you think fit–meanwhile please be assured of my prayers for you on-going work
    Your in Christ Jesus
    Ray Simons
