Australian Greeting

100 years Anniversary Greeting

The Apostolic Church Australia is almost 90 years old. The church in Australia began when young men and women responded to the call of God to ‘belt the globe’ with Good News.

The church in this nation commenced on the back of evangelistic rallies around the nation. There were miraculous healings, crowds filling public halls and many people made decisions to follow Jesus Christ. Men were called into ministry through prophetic declarations, churches were planted in obedience to Holy Spirit promptings and the nation was touched by these efforts.

The Apostolic Church, in Australia and indeed around the world, grew through faithful obedience to the gospel because men and women heard the call, paid a significant price and went to foreign lands. They were people who were moved with passion, acted with courage and served with faith.

We celebrate 100 years of the Apostolic Church and recognise in particular the people who brought it into being. We honour the sacrifice, generosity and pioneering spirit of our founders and the contribution of each generation since. We commend their efforts today. Our desire is to follow in their footsteps. We want to be a ground breaking, globe shaking movement, a team of people who take seriously the great commission and extend the kingdom of God, for his glory.

Congratulations on all your efforts to celebrate this significant anniversary.

God Bless,

Wayne Swift

Congratulations on the centenary of the Apostolic Church in the UK.

We believe that every conquest must be celebrated. The conquest of our first centenary is reason enough for a great celebration.

All the people of the Apostolic Church in Brazil are glad to be part of this big family around the world, and we want to thank all our brothers and sisters in the UK for all their commitment in the Gospel over decades so that Brasil was reached.

We join with you in this celebration! We look forward to see you face to face in the official celebration of the centenary in Cheltenham.

I am sending the greetings from all the pastors in Brasil and our thanks for everything the church in the UK has done for the church here.

May God bless you for the next one hundred years and beyond.

We believe that there is still a flame burning especially in Penygroes. Let it shine.

The greater is yet to come!

God bless,

Flávio Antonio Aredes Apostolic Church – Brazil.
