An invitation to
Whitefriars Church
Harvest Festival
Sunday 19 October 2014
Worship service
Lunch for all
Charity Auction for Tearfund
Whitefriars Junior School
Boughton Drive, Rushden, NN10 9HX
We welcome as our Harvest speaker
Nadine Parkinson, who heads the
Tearfund and New Wine partnership,
‘Change a Nation’.
Her job is to help churches like ours build
links with churches in Uganda, so that we
can work with them to do just that.
Nadine’s visit will launch our link with Okunguro Assembly Church,
Church which
the Whitefriars
ars Church Council has committed to support for three years.
Our funding enables a development worker to assist the local church to
increase their biblical understanding of how God’s existing provision for
them can grow and be multiplied, enabling them to sustain growth. In
other words they will not depend on us for gifts, but use their own
existing gifts to grow in confidence, skills, and resources. Growth will be
literally in terms of crops and produce – but also spiritually.
It is an incredibly exciting
programme led by the
Pentecostal Assemblies of God across Uganda,
resulting in improved health, sustained
development, construction, financial security,
stronger communities ... the list goes on.
Okunguro Assembly Church is in the Agule subcounty of eastern Uganda, around 200km from the
capital Kampala. Okunguro Assembly Church is led
by Pastor Robert Epianura. He is married to
Florence, and they have three children. ‘Our vision is to build a church
that sustains life in all its fullness,
ness, in service of God,’ says Pastor Robert.
