BIRMINGHAM TURNS OUT TO PRAY
Desirous to start 2015 seeking God’s direction for their lives and purpose, hundreds turned out for Headstart, a six-day long series of prayer services, organised by God’s Bride Ministries, founded by Christian leader, Seth Pinnock.
Christians from across the UK flocked to Headstart, held at Cannon Street Baptist Church, Birmingham, where prayers were said for various issues, including the Church, Christian unity and young people, as well as prayer requests.
Features speakers and special guests at Headstart included: Lord David Urquhart, Lord Michael Hastings, Bishop Wayne Brown, Pastor Celia Collins-Apeagyei, Nicky Brown and Pastor Jonathan Oloyede.
Seth Pinnock, who is known for his work hosting the popular youth event, Midnight Oil, was overwhelmed at the response to Headstart, and wrote about it on Facebook stating “7 mornings, 6 nights, 13 services, 400 in attendance, 300+ prayer requests sent in, 20+ new Project8 supporters, 5+ salvation reports, and an awesome testimony of a man whose scheduled operation got cancelled after healing prayer – none of it could be done without GOD, the amazing God’s Bride Ministries team and Cannon Street Memorial Baptist Church”.
REV GEORGE HARGREAVES FINDS LOVE
Keep The Faith extends hearty congratulations to Rev George Hargreaves, CEO of Kingdom Films. He recently married beautiful actress/model and TV presenter Maureen Jolly Nankya, in the Ugandan capital, Kampala, in front of 40 guests.
Rev Hargreaves was widowed in 2011. When he met Maureen, a Christian, in 2013, he knew that she was the woman for him. Talking about his newfound happiness, Rev Hargreaves told Keep The Faith that he is ‘elated’ with the marriage. He shared, “I knew she was the one the first time I clapped eyes on her, and I promised her we’d get married in 2014. Despite some challenges, we tied the knot on December 28.”
As far as Rev Hargreaves is concerned, he has found a real helpmate in Maureen. This talented woman recently produced her first movie, and runs Kingdom Cinema East Africa in Uganda.
Keep The Faith wishes Rev Hargreaves and his new wife all the best as they embark on this journey of life together.
