Arnos Vale Covenant Assembly celebrates four years
The fourth anniversary celebrations of the Arnos Vale Covenant Assembly (AVCA) begin this evening from 7:00 p.m. with a mission focused service with guest speaker Pastor Hanspeter Bolli of Martinique.
Tomorrow, Saturday, November 3, the men will meet for a prayer breakfast and the ladies will meet for afternoon tea. Sunday morning is a thanksgiving worship service and the anniversary celebrations will conclude with a special evening service from 6:00 p.m.
Over the last four years the church has served the community and people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines with an “Authentic Voice, Compassionate Action.”
AVCA places precedence on sharing the unfiltered gospel of Jesus Christ to the nation and the world by extension. The Christian assembly is known for its involvement in a number of social outreach responses including disaster relief, small business development, and helping to build and repair homes for the displaced both locally and regionally.
Following the Christmas floods of 2013, while AVCA was just in thought, Pastor Walford Thompson led a small team who delivered supplies to the victims in Spring Village and Troumaca in particular and ended by building a house for the young man who survived the collapse of his home in which he lost five family members. That house was built in Rosebank.
Since AVCA was officially established four years ago, members of the congregation have received help in housing, starting their own businesses and other areas of counselling. It is the stated objective of the Church leadership to focus on encouraging and assisting members in personal development as a priority.
AVCA is located upstairs the Eastern Caribbean Eye Care Center on the Windward Highway in Arnos Vale. The church is shepherded by Reverend Dr E Walford Thompson along with a pastoral team in the persons of Pastor Robert Fitzpatrick, Pastor Roy George and Bro. Bertram Mapp who leads the young congregation in worship, prayer and the study of God’s word. The assembly meets every Sundays from 9:00 a.m and Wednesday afternoons from 5:30 p.m.
