Black Country Mission Launches
This first Black Country mission will launch on at the end of August
The interdenominational initiative, the subject of prayer for 15 years, seeks to bring people ‘to share the love of God in Jesus, bring people to a saving knowledge of Christ as Lord and Saviour and to provide healing and wholeness in the community.’
So far those involved have distributed gospels, conduct open air evangelism every second week in Cradley Heath Market and visit three nursing homes each month to sing a variety of gospel songs.
In addition there will be a fortnightly car boot sale, stocking Christian goods and providing an information point for anyone interested in local churches or Christian charities. There are also plans to have a healing and wholeness meeting once a month and grow the open air evangelism into different town centres.
The launch will take place at Cradley Heath Baptist Church, the home base for the mission.
Member Robert Jones said, ‘This has been the subject for prayer for fifteen years. The emphasis is on the gospel and healing as we are endeavouring to follow the example of Jesus in Luke 4:18-19.
‘So far we have given out God's word to over 10,000 households in and around the Halesowen. We visit nursing homes, spread the Gospel on the street and do open air work in Halesowen and Cradley Heath. We continue to sow seed and are beginning to see the fruit of our ministry!’
