A Call To Mission at Cullybackey Elim Church will take place on Saturday, 20th October 2018 at 7:30pm.
Cullybackey Elim will be hosting this evening to remember the 40th anniversary of the Vumba massacre in which missionaries, including Cullybackey’s own Roy Lynn, laid down their lives on the mission field. The evening will include worship from Elim Sound and a drama called ‘A Call To Mission’ performed by the Elim Missions team.
‘Remembering the Elim Missionaries who surrendered all, inspiring our movement with a future of Global Mission.’
“In collaboration with Elim Sound and Richard Hasnip, Elim Missions present ‘A Call to Mission’; a call to action through an evening of worship, preaching and drama, to see the Church surrender to our Saviour’s call to ‘go to all the world.”
Paul is the Elim International Missions Director and has oversight over the Elim Missions office, our missionaries and Elim Global. As well as visiting a number of churches in the UK to share the vision of Elim Missions and to build up support, Paul regularly visits our missionaries, partners and Elim Global Leaders across the world to encourage, teach and resource them. Paul’s heart is for the Gospel to be known in every country around the world and feels Elim has a huge part to play in seeing this come to fruition.
Elim Sound have a rich heritage that spans almost an entire century and are the product of the collective skill and passion of members of a new generation currently emerging within the UK’s Elim Pentecostal Churches.
Bringing together a community of worship leaders, pastors and creatives from the Elim movement and beyond, Elim Sound are committed to inspiring, encouraging and equipping the church in worship.
