Global invitation to follow the Christ
Most of us are familiar with the work of Jehovah’s Witnesses but if there seems to have been more of them on the streets at the moment there is a good reason.
Volunteers of all ages throughout Northland and north Auckland have been sharing in the global distribution of an invitation to the international ‘Follow the Christ’ convention series.
Their goal has been to hand out as many invitations as possible in the days leading up to the convention this weekend.
The three-day event, being held in over 150 countries, will focus on the life, ministry and future activities of Jesus Christ and the scriptural basis for identifying true Christianity.
Internationally nearly 100,000 congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses will share in distributing the invitation.
The local programme will be held at the Telstra Clear Events Centre, Manukau City, Auckland, from Friday, 3 August to Sunday, 5 August. Sessions start at 9.30am. Admission is free and all are welcome to attend.
