World Conference News

The Apostolic World Conference was held in Ghana from Tuesday 29th October to Friday 1st November. Pastors Eric Parker, Nigel Bainbridge and ActionOverseas Team Member Carol Jenkins travelled to the conference from The Ark.

There were around 1000 delegates from 31 nations, the biggest world conference ever. The organising committee had done a tremendous job in every area and the conference was a great success. The delegates from The Ark thoroughly enjoyed the preaching, speakers and fantastic Ghanian hospitality. The theme for the week was 'Belting the Globe with the Gospel.'

The conference finished with a celebratory dinner where a prophetic word was given of God moving in the nations of the world to spread His Kingdom. The next World Conference will be here in the UK when the Apostolic Church will be celebrating its 100th Year Anniversary. 

While in the country Eric, Nigel and Carol all had the opportunity to preach in different churches in the Accra region where God really blessed their ministry. They were also able to spend some time travelling to other areas and a little trip to a local market. One of their trips to a market resulted in five young men coming to know Jesus. Pastor Patrick Fitzgerald, a pastor from Ireland who was with the group, prayed for the men and gave them Bibles. We pray they will now attend church and grow in their Christian lives.
