International missions archive to move to Leuven

On 19 October in Leuven, Belgium, Peter Conlan of Operation Mobilisation International (OM) will formally hand over the organisation’s records to EVADOC, Belgium’s archive for Protestantism and Evangelicalism. The archive will include sixty years of material which covers Bible smuggling into Soviet Russia, shipwreck, overland passage to India, mountain adventures in the Himalayas, and the growth of a movement estimated to have touched the lives of one billion people worldwide. Linked with KADOC-KU Leuven, Catholic University of Leuven, Evadoc is a leading research unit in the history of evangelicalism and protestantism in the Low Countries. Evadoc’s first task will be to catalogue the materials. Some restrictions will apply for security reasons. Peter Conlan has been with OM since the 1960s. The handover will take place at Evadoc’s 10 year anniversary Study and Meeting day, at the Evangelical Theological Faculty, Sint-Jansbergsesteenweg 95-97, 3001 Leuven, Belgium.

Aaldert Prins, spokesman for EVADOC, said today: “The OM archive is one of the greatest treasures of the modern protestant missionary movement. I am delighted that OM has chosen to entrust its records to EVADOC.”

Further information on OM is available at www.om.org.

Home360 is an immersive film experience which tells the story of the Bible. Projected inside a nine metre Dome, the film can be seen by 30 people at a time.
 
Bible Society are asking local churches to support this project through the provision of small hospitality teams and by bringing their friends, family members work colleagues etc to come and see the film. In 2020, this experience will be taking place in the following nine cities: Hull, Exeter, Manchester, Liverpool, Leicester, Swansea, Brighton, Birmingham and Newcastle. .

Prayer spaces in public places

‘May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.’ Romans 15:13

41% of practising Christians say that a spiritual experience or an experience of the love of Jesus was a key influence in their coming to faith – so if we help more people to experience God’s love and presence, more of them will come to know him for themselves.

In 2020, 24-7 Prayer and HOPE Together invite you to unite as local churches to host a creative, public prayer space. Invite your community to experience God through talking and listening to Him in prayer.

Imagine, all over the country, people meeting the God of hope in schools, work places, high streets, gardens and unexpected public places.

Will you offer your community a place they can meet God in prayer?

In the coming months we will be developing an information pack and resources to give you everything you need to provide Hope Spaces in your community in 2020. To register your interest email: hopespaces@24-7prayer.com
