NIGERIAN (IGBO) DAY OF FELLOWSHIP
15th December 2016
On Sabbath 10 December, the Nigerian culture was expressed in its fullest as over 100 people came together for a day of fellowship with the Orient Lighthouse Fellowship (Igbo Language). With lively singing, joyous expression of gratefulness to God, and the auditorium arrayed with men and women dressed in beautiful colourful costume, the day would definitely be summed up as a colourful expression of worship.
Some of the highlights included a beautiful musical rendition by Stephanie Anurukem singing 'To God be the Glory', and a time of praise and worship, that brought the whole church together in one voice. Pastor Richard Daly, BUC Communication and Media director, shared words of appreciation and greetings on behalf of the Union of churches and Ike Anurukem presented the midday sermon on the theme 'Charity begins at home'.
This being one of a few times in the year that Nigerian fellowship was organised, it was decided that further worship experiences would continue in the future. Orient Lighthouse Day of Fellowship as they are called fellowship at the Hope Family Centre, Unit 7 Abbey Retail Park, Barking, IG11 7AP. The next service will be held on Sabbath 14 January, 2017.
