Thousands of Anglicans Worshipped at All Saints Gathering in Jos

st-johns-college-all-saits-gatheringThousand of people gathered at the St John’s college, Jos, Central Nigeria, for the annual All Saints Gathering on Sunday, 20th November 2016. The annual event brings together all members of the Anglican Diocese of Jos in worship, praise music and dance.

Hundreds of people made commitment for Christ and about 300 people comfirmed-memberswere confirmed as members of the Church at the service.
The Archbishop Benjamin Kwashi, addressing the gathering said, “The Church, to be relevant and fulfil its God given mandate, must reach people with the light of the gospel and must play its primary role of caring for orphans and widows, feeding the poor, protecting the vulnerable and showing the love of Christ to everyone. Otherwise the Church simply becomes a club. The church therefore ceases to be a “church’ the body of Christ.”

 

A woman, over 80 years old was confirmed at the service, who gave her life to Christ and was baptised. “I have found Christ, at my old age and I am very happy. I am at rest.” She said.

The Mother’s Union, Lead by Mrs Gloria Ladi Kwashi, undertook the mu-songtask of feeding the thousands of people who attended the gathering. The Mother’s Union sang praise to God in the very evangelical fashion that is highly appreciated and which is the popular mode of worship in may suburban Christian communities.

The Mother’s Union, last month, had planted two churches in an evangelical outreach to Buhit village, a rural community about 20 kilometres from Jos.

The theme for this encounter was: “…found faithful.” Primates, Bishops and representatives of Anglicans in the Global South reflected on mission.

Below we publish excerpts from their message to the worldwide Anglican Communion. 

 

7 October 2016

God places in our hearts the resolve to be part of his mighty work in our generation. He is merciful to us and has answered our prayers in ways and in circumstances that far exceed our expectation. We have witnessed the gracious and powerful breaking in of the Holy Spirit in the present time. We recall with joy the many ways that God has revived our Churches through his light-shedding holy Word and fresh-anointing of his Spirit. He makes us able to take up responsibilities and initiatives for mission. He uses us to contend together in the face of false teaching for the faith that was once delivered to the saints (Jude 3).
