Inverness Gospel Mission - Summer 2010

For the fourth summer running People With a Mission Ministries are working with local churches to host a series of outreach events in Bught Park, Inverness during the month of August.

When Jesus had gone indoors the blind man came to Him and He asked them
“Do you believe I am able to do this?” “Yes Lord” they replied. Matt.9:28

Monday 16 - Wednesday 25 August, 2010


PCC Tent1Pastor Mervyn Milne of People with Mission Ministries writes:

"A number of church leaders have again expressed their desire to hold a Gospel Mission in Inverness during August 2010 and our ministry  – People With A Mission Ministries (PWAMM) – has been invited to join with them. We have already hosted Missions in the summers of 2007, 2008 and 2009 with a number of people positively responding to the Gospel during these outreach events. This year's event will be the longest to date.

PWAMM is now involved with over 300 pastors and leaders throughout Scotland. Our vision is to share the good news of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ by working with local congregations in their locality. Our activities include tent missions, bus missions, children's street work, billboards, television outreach and pastors and leaders prayer for revival meetings.

We know that we are not starting something new because many congregations are already effectively reaching out in the City. Luis Palau's visit to Inverness in June 2009 was a tremendous occasion for the Church of Jesus Christ to reach out to the unsaved. We believe that the Gospel Mission planned for August offers an ideal follow through this year again on the Luis Palau Festival.

In the tweleve days of mission the 2010 programme includes:
  • 5 nights of Tent Meetings with guest speakers each night (21 - 25)
  • 2 Tea in the Marquee meetings for older citizens
  • 4 nights of Kids Club for primary age children in Inverness LeisureCentre (23 - 27)
  • 2 days of Bus Mission in Inverness City Centre(16 and 17)
  • 7 Primary School visits by the Challenger Bus Teams (Bishop Edens', Dochgarroch, Merkinch, St. Joseph's, Central and Crown)
