Moment & Prayer 30 April 2020
The Anglican Church in Brazil is one of 11 Anglican Provinces that are part of GAFCON. It came in to being after the liberal Anglican Episcopal Church of Brazil abandoned bible-based Anglican orthodoxy. It is led by Archbishop Miguel Uchôa and grew from the Diocese of Recife through being very active in church planting.
Brazil, Recife diocese.
'Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season;' (1 Tim. 4:2)
Archbishop Miguel and his wife, Juliane, report that lockdown has provided opportunities for the gospel. Their church's online service has had 2.8k views on YouTube, which is a big increase on the normal number. They have also started a daily online devotional and many have appreciated this, and some are coming to faith. Thank God for these opportunities to faithfully proclaim the gospel and for people coming to Christ. Pray that these social media initiatives will continue to be effective.
Global Anglicans Moment & Prayer is an initiative for churches around the world so that each week they are kept up to date with news and a prayer item. Please share these in your church's bulletins and media announcements.
Throughout Gafcon churches worldwide we are looking to build up the faithful global Communion by sharing these bulletin updates in Gafcon churches' media announcements. We are seeking to have a Gafcon representative or advocate in each church who will be our point of contact for the Moment & Prayer items. If you are a church staff member and/or an active church member who is using the Moment & Prayer news then we would love to connect with you and email the weekly updates to you.
Please email [email protected] if you would like to find out more and be added to the group of Gafcon Church Representatives/Advocates.
