Bangor Worldwide is preparing to host its 79th annual Convention celebrating and promoting world mission.
The 2015 Convention, held mainly at Hamilton Road Presbyterian Church, will begin on Friday, August 21 and continue until Saturday, August 29, finishing with a celebration in Belfast’s Waterfront Hall.
Committee Chairman Tom Clarke extended a welcome to the many events that are part of an “action-packed” programme.
“Our theme this year is Building the Kingdom,” he said. “ We have an incredible line-up for our closing event at the Waterfront Hall, including Professor John Lennox from Oxford University. Maud Kells will also be taking part and praise will be led by the New Irish Choir and Orchestra and Alistair Hamill and band.
“Throughout the week there will be an exhibition of over 70 mission agencies in the church hall Monday to Friday, open from 6pm.
“This is a great opportunity for people to talk to representatives about their work in the global mission field and encourage them in the process.”
