EMW looks ahead
Churches in Machynlleth, Llandudno, Gower, Welshpool and Bala are considering how to extend outreach in their areas, the latest Evangelical Movement of Wales (EMW) newsletter has said.
The decision follows the encouragement given when, in November 2010, six churches across the Llanelli-Swansea area met to pray and make inroads into their communities with the gospel in their own language.
More than 20,000 gospel-centred newspapers had been distributed in the area, prompting more enquiries from churches across Wales.
While the outreach into communities continues, EMW also announced that its summer camps, and its presence at the annual National Eisteddfod at Wrexham, have borne fruit.
According to the newsletter, new displays, tracts and books were evident and well received at the Eisteddfod, while ‘there is news of a steady stream of young people being converted’ at the camps.
The EMW has also asked for prayer regarding a consortium of Cardiff churches that it hopes will take up the opportunity of sharing the gospel in the heart of the city in 2012. It has also asked for more volunteers to help in its bookshops.
Other matters for prayer include staffing, printing of various books and leaflets, and the work of youth camps, training courses and conferences.
