Franklin Graham announces 2020 Tour of the United Kingdom

Tour cities include Glasgow, Newcastle, Sheffield, Milton Keynes, Liverpool, Cardiff, Birmingham and London

London, Jan. 8, 2020—Franklin Graham has announced a number of live events across the United Kingdom in 2020 as he seeks to share a message of hope with all who would attend. Graham will offer the life-changing message of God’s love to eight cities in England, Scotland and Wales through the Graham Tour UK.

“The year 2020 marks a huge shift in the UK. In a year of change we need the certainty that only God can provide,” said Judah Cole, pastor of Open Well Church. “Franklin Graham is going to bring a clear message of faith and peace as he points people to Jesus Christ, the source of true and lasting stability. We are excited to partner with the Graham Tour UK and we can’t wait to see what God will do here.”

The tour comes at a time when disunity and uncertainty are keenly felt across the United Kingdom and around the world. Franklin Graham believes, as his father Billy Graham did, that what the world needs is spiritual renewal.

“I’m coming to the United Kingdom to share the same powerful message that my father preached here for more than three decades,” said Franklin Graham, who is president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, which has had an office in the UK since 1954, and the international Christian relief and evangelism organisation Samaritan’s Purse, which has had an office in the UK since 1990.

“My father loved the UK and preached here more than any other place in the world outside of the United States,” Graham said. “Just like my father, I’m looking forward to sharing with the people of the United Kingdom that God loves them and has a purpose for their lives.”

The Graham Tour UK will be free of charge and everyone is welcome.

Along with a message from Franklin Graham, these hope-filled, family-friendly events will feature musical performances by Planetshakers and Michael W. Smith.
