The Turning – Encounter An Evening Of Praise And Worship

The Turning – Mission Gloucestershire

Encounter evening of praise and worship

with Pastor Yinka Oyekan

Tuesday 9th October 7.30 pm 2018

Jesus said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” (Matthew 9:37-38)

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

In 2016 The Gate Church in Reading held what they thought would be a small evangelistic mission but during this God imparted a grace and anointing and in 3 weeks over 1,200 gave their lives to Jesus! Since then this has been replicated through out the UK in places such as, Bristol, Southampton, Wiltshire, and abroad, such as France and Belgium. God’s people are being mobilised in evangelism, thousands are responding to the Gospel, and churches are working together to provide the important follow up discipleship. This exciting move of God, and openness to the Gospel, has been named ‘The Turning’ and is being led by Pastor Yinka Oyekan, Senior Minister of The Gate Church in Reading, and Apostolic Team Leader for Barnabas Fellowship of Churches.

Yinka’s desire is to help enable us all in bringing the gospel message to the streets of our county. The Turning Gloucestershire mission launch is scheduled for Thursday July 4th to Saturday 13th July 2019, so please make a note of this in your diary. 

This is an open invitation for you to find out what this is all about, come and join us for a regional encountering evening of praise and worship with Pastor Yinka Oyekan. I for one am very expectant that God will outpour his His Spirit on us and we will receive a fresh conviction and anointing on this evening. Please join us on Tuesday 9th October 7.30pm at The Salvation Army, Bath Road, Cheltenham GL53 7HG. Parking is available in the town centre and car park opposite the venue.

Please share this with any contacts that you have throughout the county. I am particularly keen for this to reach church leaders but it is an open invitation to anyone to find out and experience what God is doing through The Turning. Please do let me know that you are attending or want to know more.

Psalm 133:1-3   Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!  2 It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down on the beard, the beard of Aaron, Running down on the edge of his garments.  3 It is like the dew of Hermon, descending upon the mountains of Zion; for there the LORD commanded the blessing — Life forevermore.
