The new UNITE 30/31 youth service got off to a great start last Sunday evening (24 October) at All Saints in The Beacon Centre on Chafford Hundred.
And UNITE 30/31 does what it says on the tin – it’s come out of unity, it’s bringing together young people from across the borough in unity, and it’s promoting unity by its very existence.
The theme of the night was UNSTOPPABLE DISCIPLES – the borough’s young believers were challenged to take a stand in their daily lives for Jesus.
Worship was led by a group of young musicians from a variety of Thurrock’s churches (see picture).
Danny Sedano, Youth and Community Worker with the Grays Team Ministry, told Transformation Thurrock, “We had an amazing turn up of 120 people – far more than we hoped would be there. The service ran really well with good worship and a great talk from Kev McGlade of 29th Chapter fame”.
Danny added, “I think that the youth all had a great time and we are awaiting feedback before deciding what to do next.”
Edwin Hughes of Grays Baptist Church and Thurrock Epicentre said, “There seemed a good turn out of young people from many churches and youth projects”.
Edwin also said that “Kev spoke to the young people about Acts 17 being an indicator to turn the world upside down. There is no doubt Paul in that chapter certainly stirred things up wherever he went and left a lasting impression. Kev then encouraged the young people present to become UNSTOPPABLE DISCIPLES with the majority of them standing to receive an anointing from God to enable them to be that.”
It sounds like the inaugural UNITE 30/31 was not only successful but was a pivotal event for the up-and-coming generation of believers.
