40 Nights of TLC
Gateway 2 New Life, an Elim Pentecostal church, is about to launch out on its biggest Mission covering large parts of Cornwall.
The church which is based in Launceston and Bodmin also has plans to launch out in Truro. Senior Pastor John Berriman stated that he has a heart for the whole of Cornwall and that he has been troubled by the lack of people professing to be Christian in the County. “Recent surveys have suggested that less than 5% of the population would be considered to be practicing Christians. This concerns me a lot and I feel that we in church need to get the message of the Truth, Love and Compassion out into our communities.”
With this in mind the church has set up an ambitious plan to reach out to towns and villages within a 30 mile radius of their meeting centres over a period of 40 nights*. Each night there will be an hour presentation to include some life changing testimonies as well some live music and, of course, The Gospel. John added “All too often modern type church sets up in the larger towns and we really wanted to also include some of the smaller villages.”
*The 40 nights is planned to be over an 8 week period starting on the 17th April at Altarnun Village Hall, Near Launceston @ 7.30pm.
