On Friday February 5, the South American Mission Society (SAMS) Ireland will video premier its annual evening conference Friday Night Live online.
Friday Night Live gathers supporters of SAMS Ireland together for an evening of encouragement in mission.
The event will include contributions from church partners in South America as well as local stories of mission and inspiration.
SAMS Ireland Mission Director Rev Stephen McElhinney said: “Even though it’s been a difficult year for everyone, this February our prayer is that Friday Night Live will once again bring us hope and encouragement with the Global perspective on mission. This year we have even more connection with the South American church, many of whose members will be able to join us online for the first time.”
Stephen said many people had been able to contribute to the video premier event. “We are especially delighted that Rev Ronald Irene from Asuncion, Paraguay, will lead us to reflect on prayer and the theme: TIES in the Gospel – to Thank, Inform, Encourage and Support.
“We will welcome Bishops Raphael (Bolivia) and Daniel (Uruguay) as well as hear from Anglican Church community leaders in remote areas such as the North Argentine Chaco region.”
‘TIES in the Gospel’ will be the central theme of this service, reflecting on the message of Colossians 4:3-6.
Friday Night Live will initially be launched as a Facebook Premier Video, which can be viewed at 7.30pm on Friday February 5. The video of the full event will be available on other platforms following the premier.
