Join us for an evangelistic outreach during the Hindu festival of Diwali (festival of light). Wolverhampton’s motto is also “out of darkness cometh light.” The theme of this outreach is to combine both of these ideas with Jesus as the light of the world.
You will be part of a varied team, ministering alongside a new church plant in Wolverhampton reaching out with the love of God and the message of the Gospel.

As a pioneering outreach, you will help the church members reach out to its ethnically diverse neighbourhood and will involve scouting out the best places to conduct evangelism (surveys, leaflet distribution, book table, etc.).

While the goal is to share God's love with Sikhs and Hindus in Wolverhampton, we are by no means limiting ourselves here as others also participate in the festivities. Training will be provided.
