WEST BROMWICH, ENGLAND (ANS) -- At their annual National Convention over 1700 New Testament Church of God leaders and members from across England and Wales responded to the call to mobilise all of their churches and networks to gather for the historic National Day of Prayer and Worship, September 29, 2012 taking place in London's Wembley Stadium.
“We’re doing everything we can to ensure that members from our denomination will be well represented at NDOP Wembley. It will be an instrument for positive change in this nation and we want to be a part of it,” said Eric Brown, NTCOG’s Administrative Bishop for England and Wales.
As well as NTCOG, churches from all denominations are uniting together towards NDOP Wembley including the Methodist Church, Elim, New Covenant, URC, RCCG, Church of England and the Baptist Union of Great Britain.
Bishop Brown believes the unity of the church is key towards a national revival: “It’s important that we all come together because we are working for one Lord and His heart is that the church should be one. Therefore NDOP Wembley is one of the best ways we can come together around a common purpose. My hope is this unity won’t just be for a one off event.”
Many other NTCOG leaders shared their excitement of mobilising their churches towards NDOP Wembley:
“NDOP Wembley is a wonderful opportunity for Christians of all church groups to come together with a sense of unity and powerful prayer together for the nation. Our own local church is planning to make its way to NDOP Wembley, so we’re already booking tickets.”
Rev Brian Robinson, Senior Pastor NTCOG Clapton
“NTCOG has totally bought in to NDOP Wembley. Many of our churches across the country are already promoting the event. This is a vital opportunity for people to demonstrate unity in their attendance at this gathering.”
Bishop Derek Webley, NTCOG Handsworth, Birmingham
“This is going to be one fantastic event that I believe will touch the city of London and all of the UK.”
Bishop Larry Hess, NTOG Field Director of the UK, Europe and Middle East
The latest confirmed artists include Noel Robinson, Graham Kendrick, Matt Redman, Tim Hughes, Guvna B and the RCCG Mass Choir.
