The Castle Green, Leisure Centre in Dagenham, London was filled with brethren of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) together with their guests and friends last 27th October 2019, Sunday.
With a mission to share Lord God’s words through stage performances, the brethren from local congregations of Stratford, Romford, and Eastbourne, and Royal Greenwich Group Worship Service (GWS) invited their loved ones and acquaintances to attend and enjoy the INConcert.
INConcert is an activity where the talents of the brethren are showcased through musical presentations using the Iglesia Ni Cristo Original Music.
On that day, it served as a platform to take the obligation of each member of the Church to proclaim and share the holy teachings of Almighty God.
“The aim of the event was to share our faith and to celebrate the 105th year of the Church of Christ. Also, we want to reach hundreds of visitors and sign up as many Bible students as possible,” remarked Brother Leslie Jordan, one of the head deacons of the local congregation of Stratford.
Before the concert, an evangelical mission was conducted to preach God’s words led by Brother Glenn R. Gomez, district supervising minister of United Kingdom.
As the musical presentations kicked off, the brethren and guests witnessed the graceful performances from the Christian Family Organisation (CFO) which they enjoyed.
Sister Jasmine Clarize Bagayan, INCMedia Bureau Coordinating Producer, did not let this event pass by and actively participated in preparing and managing the performances and stage production.
“I was excited when I heard we were having another INConcert this year. I can truly say that each and every member had done their best to invite as many of their friends and family. Praises be to God,” she declared.
The performers, on the other hand, took weeks to practice their production numbers. Despite their struggles, they continued to uphold their responsibilities in this kind of holy endeavour of God.
“What we have learned is that everything is easy when the brethren are united. Everyone is helping voluntarily. It was overwhelming!” said Sister Bennielyn Joaquin, a CFO officer and the stage manager.
Indeed, this activity is not only to showcase the abilities of the brethren in singing and dancing, but also to promote brotherhood, camaraderie, and the commandments of Almighty God written in the Bible.
