Brothers and sisters,
Greetings and Blessings in Christ
Plans are afoot for our Aldersgate celebration 2019 and we encourage congregations and members to begin preparations as look forward for God to do far more than we can ever ask or think.
Prayer Caravan (Saturday May 11)
This year the prayer Caravan will be a joint venture with the Georgetown-Mt. Coke Circuit. It would be a nation-wide prayer caravan. The Caravan is scheduled for Saturday, May 11 beginning at 2pm and culminating with an Open Air Service in Calliaqua, at 5.pm
Three simultaneous caravans will begin at 2pm. The starting points are Chateaubelair & Layou for the Kingstown-Chateaubelair Circuit and Georgetown for the Georgetown-Mt. Coke Circuit. Congregations in Zones 1 and 2 will meet at Layou to begin that Caravan with Troumaca and Biabou being points of convergence for the other two caravans. Each caravan will make approximately three 30-minute stops where all members will go in the immediate vicinity to pray with persons. More details will be communicated.
Congregations are encouraged to begin making arrangements for transportation. It is critical that you begin making transportation arrangements early. Each congregation should have at the very least one van.
Aldersgate Rally (May 26)
This year’s format will be similar to that of last year. The rally Begins at 9.00 a.m. Lunch is scheduled for 1.p.m and the worship and communion Service at 3pm. During the morning session we will have a devotional time, teaching sessions which will include Sunday school for the children and ministry celebration where both circuits will display some of their outstanding talents/gifts.
