Mission returns to Harringay 60 years after Billy Graham's crusade
Exactly 60 years after Billy Graham's crusade, another gospel mission in Harringay is gearing up to bring the good news to a new generation in the area.
Hope for Harringay, organised by Harringay United Baptist Church and two British evangelists, will commence Sunday,19 October with a service at 7.30pm, which will take place every night until the following Saturday.
The Greater London Crusade in 1954 saw 38,000 people register their decision to become Christians. It's hoped this new mission will draw the same enthusiasm, as churches and local individuals have already got behind the week-long event.
Alex Bowler, who received the call to ministry while Billy Graham was preaching at Crystal Palace Stadium, and Steve Mullins of the Dry Bones Trust, will lead the mission.
Alex said: "Steve and I are feel very privileged to have been invited by Harringay United Church-Baptist to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to the people of Harringay.
"60 years may have passed since Billy Graham preached in Harringay, but the message of God's love remains the same! People everywhere are searching for hope, joy and peace in their lives. We would like to invite the residents of Harringay and surrounding areas to come to the Mission and hear the greatest message of hope there is!"
The Hope for Harringay mission will be held from Sunday 19th October until Saturday 25th October.
Admission is free and all are welcome to attend. Visit www.hucb.org.uk for more information.
