Bangor Worldwide launch details of their 2024 Convention – ‘Reaching People, Changing Lives’

Bangor Worldwide has released details of their plans for Convention week, which runs from Friday 16th to Sunday 25th August 2024, during its preview launch events.

Speaking at the launch events this week, Chairman Tom Clarke said, “Our theme for 2024 is Reaching People, Changing Lives. This captures the essence of what the convention has been about since its inception in 1937. There is the activity of people, whether in distant lands or on this island, being reached for the Gospel and many lives being changed as a result. However, there is another aspect; some who attend the convention will be reached by the challenge laid down by the speakers and have their lives totally changed by answering the call to respond.

“Bible teaching forms a core element of Bangor Worldwide and this year we are delighted that Colin Smith, a Scot who has been based in the USA for the last 25 years. Colin will be leading the studies each morning from Monday to Friday, at 11.30am.

“Other international speakers include Bob Fu, author of God’s Double Agent, Pete Hansen, an award winning filmmaker, Dr Beryl D’Souza-Vali from the Good Shepherd Church of India and Taysir Abu Saada from the Middle East.”

The majority of events of the Bangor Worldwide 2024 Convention will be held at Hamilton Road Presbyterian Church but there are also events in the neighbouring Baptist Church as well as in Dublin, Drogheda, Drumreagh, Lurgan and Magherafelt.

There are specific events for young adults on both Fridays as well as a special Equip Gathering on Saturday 17th in City Church, 1st Bangor Presbyterian Church. A ladies afternoon tea event will take place in Bangor Parish Church on Thursday 22nd and a seminar, Growing the church in difficult times, at Lisnabreen Presbyterian on Saturday 24th August.

Registration will be required for certain events such as the seminars, so check the programme in full and book in via the Bangor Worldwide website –
