We are hosting a Leaders Gathering in preparation for an event which we believe has the potential to be of significant impact for the Kingdom of God in Cornwall.
Recently we were delighted to spend time with Yinka Oyekan and his team, hearing about their plans to take “The Turning” that has started in Reading, to cities and towns in the UK and then into Europe.
Since we first heard about what God was doing in Reading UK (over 2,080 genuinely becoming either new Believers or making a re-commitment to Jesus since it started) we have been excited to think that this could be one of the sparks that may ignite Revival in our Country and in Cornwall! Yinka is already planning to take teams to many cities around the UK and into Europe.
With all this in mind Yinka and his team have agreed to come to Cornwall. They are excited to see that together we could reach the major population centres in Cornwall all at once if enough of us leaders can get together to make it happen. Yinka has a real heart for the county having been based here with Don Double for 7 years in St. Austell. We are excited to have a chance for us all to impact a whole county rather than just a city!
Practically, the only way we think this can happen is for all of the Churches in Cornwall to partner together: so our heart is for every church leader in Cornwall to come and meet, hear from and pray with Yinka and his team. As Open Heaven we see our role as facilitators and hosts and we hope that others will partner with us in co-ordinating this event too.
Yinka is coming to do an initial envisioning and sharing meeting with LEADERS ONLY on Monday 26th September from noon to 2pm at Truro Baptist Church.We will host this on behalf of 'The Turning' and will provide a pasty lunch (we will take up an offering to cover hall costs and the pasties!).
The main Turning event will then follow, likely in early February next year (waiting on Yinka to confirm dates soon) to be run simultaneously with one in Plymouth for Devon. Ours will be unique as all the others are city-focussed while ours will be to reach a whole county! Yinka and team will explain how this will work on the 26th to give us all plenty of time to prepare together.
If you would like more information about The Turning, please email us at: email@example.com and we will send you a document that Yinka has recently written.
