Major Christian outreach gathers momentumThe size and scope of the November outreach to Inverclyde involving members of Times Square church in New York and its Senior Pastor Carter Conlon is gathering pace according to the Inverclyde Christian Initiative, Teen Challenge and the Haven drug rehabilitation centre who have formed a local steering group to plan and co-ordinate the outreach with their American counterparts.n November 2008 Carter Conlon, Senior Pastor at Times Square church spoke in the Greenock Town Hall as part of an international Christian revivalconference and felt the desire to come back and lead a series of outreach meetings which will take place in the Greenock Town Hall on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings the 10th to the 12th of November and then on Friday 13th November in the Port Glasgow Town Hall. These meetings willalso be broadcast live on the internet and the steering group is writing to ministers and leaders in all the major towns and cities in Scotland inviting them who hold their own outreaches simultaneously by being able to receive live feeds through the internet and relay the meetings in halls and homes throughout the country.The outreach plans in Inverclyde are gathering momentum. Originally, it was thought that a group of up to 50 members of Times Square church would come over to Inverclyde to help with various aspects of the outreach, but this has grown in recent weeks to over 200. And while the outreach will centre on the evening occasions there will be a large number of other activities taking place during the day. These will include outreaches and visits to prisons, to young people, in schools and colleges, to business people and in old folks' homes, as well as street work and the Teen Challenge bus outreaches in over a dozen locations. The group coming from Times Square will feature a large choir and there are plans to undertake a number of singing events across Inverclyde. The Greenock Healing Rooms in the Oak Mall will also be open each day throughout the week. The steering group believes that this outreach will have a huge and lasting impact on the people of Inverclyde. 'God wants to change so many lives for good here', said a spokesperson, 'and to take many out of the woes and sins they find themselves dominated by. Lives will be changed forever, families will be changed and communities can be changed. The power of God is here to do this, and to set people free and to heal them from all kinds of illness and hurts. We would urge the people of Inverclyde to be a part of this outreach and to come to the Town Hall meetings and other outreaches. Further details will be available soon.'If you would like to join a co-ordinated prayer groupo for this event, please email me with "Inverclyde Prayer" in the subject line.In His GripStuart Patterson[email][email protected][/email]
