Sydney Town Hall Outreaches
Once a month, members of the Revival Fellowship in Sydney, Central Coast, Newcastle and Wollongong meet together on the steps of Sydney’s Town Hall to tell people about Jesus and His salvation message. We spoke to Jesse Jesus, from the Central Coast fellowship, to tell us a little bit about these events.
How did the Sydney Town Hall outreaches start?
We saw the need of salvation for Sydney, the most populated city in Australia.The idea was to show the love of God through songs to Sydney, a city comparable to Sodom and Gomorrah, where evil deeds are seen as normal and a desire for God is vanishing.
The Lord put a desire in our hearts, to focus on Sydney. We just needed to gather ourselves together and do it!
Our very first outreach was almost a year ago on Saturday 15 July 2017. On that day we saw things we never thought we’d see on our own doorstep - people receiving the Holy Spirit on the spot, and people asking us for prayer. The Lord has fully blessed ever since.
How often do you come to Town Hall and who gets involved?
These outreaches take place on a monthly basis. Occasionally we do extra ones when there is a particular need or for an upcoming event. For example, the week prior to the NSW State Conference we headed up to Newcastle for an outreach to promote the upcoming event.
On average we get 30 to 40 saints involved and most of them travel in by train. It’s open to all revival saints regardless of their age. We love to have other assemblies support the outreach too when they are in town. Some of us might not actively witness to people but our presence is just as crucial as those who are talking to people. For various reasons not everyone in the fellowship can get to the outreach, but we know they are always praying for us. It’s really a great example of teamwork for the glory of the Lord.
Tell us about those wonderful blue T-shirts?
We knew that getting T-shirts printed would make us look organised, serious, and help us stand out in the crowd.Apart from promoting the NSW website, the T-shirts challenge those who doubt God or have never experienced God’s power in their lives
When is the next Town Hall outreach?
The next Town Hall outreach is on14 July from12noon – rain, hail or shine! This one will be our first year anniversary!A scripture that has been inspirational for us at Sydney Town Hall is:
Acts 18 v 9-10: ‘Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace: For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.’
Jesse Jesus (Central Coast Revival Fellowship)
‘We believe the Bible is the true and inspired Word of God.’ John 12 v 48-50
