MEDIA ALERT—THIS SATURDAY: Franklin Graham to share message of God’s love at ExCeL in London

WHO:

Revd Franklin Graham is bringing the God Loves You Tour and a message of hope to London. The programme will feature several musical guests, including CeCe Winans, a 15-time Grammy winner and the best-selling female Gospel artist of all time, and multi-platinum selling artist Michael W. Smith, who has been honoured with three Grammys and an American Music Award. The event is free, family-friendly, and all are welcome.

WHAT:

This is the closing night of the four-city God Loves You Tour that began in May with stops in Liverpool, South Wales, and Sheffield. Thousands of people in each of those cities came to hear Revd Graham share a message of God’s love. The tour is an outreach of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, which has had an office in London since 1954. Christians from more than 1,000 churches across London are working with Mr Graham and the God Loves You Tour because they believe the life-changing message of the Bible needs to be shared in their community.

WHEN:

Saturday 16 July at 7:00pm

WHERE:

ExCeL London
Royal Victoria Dock
1 Western Gateway
London

WHY:

“If ever the UK needed the message of the Good News of Jesus Christ, it is now! The nation has been gripped with sorrow and the pain of loss. Many have lost hope and they are filled with anxiety and worry over the direction the world is heading,” said Revd Paul James, senior pastor of Harrow International Christian Centre in London. “The answer can only be found in Jesus Christ. We desperately need the God Loves You Tour, and we look forward to hearing Franklin Graham share the most important message the world will ever hear.”

Revd Graham is coming to London 33 years after his father Billy Graham’s final event in the city at Wembley Stadium in 1989.
