Bible Week 2018 will take place from 28–31 August in Willowfield Church Belfast.

Bishop Harold has announced Grant Lemarquand, currently Area Bishop for The Horn of Africa, as our Bible Week speaker in 2018.

Grant is a Canadian missionary and academic and Bishop Harold had the pleasure of hearing him teach at this year’s Albany Convention. Unfortunately, Grant’s wife Wendy has suffered ill health, so at the end of October the couple will leave Ethiopia and relocate to North America.

You can follow their blog at Please pray for them during this time of transition.
