Reaching children has always been a priority. The first ‘Children’s Special’ was launched in 1970 and well over a hundred children attended. We met in a local junior school hall in the East end of London. The ‘Special’ continues to this day.
We thank God for the thousands of children that have passed through our hands since 1970. Children from all kinds of backgrounds, all walks of life and creeds.
Our ‘Specials’ were established and ‘sprung up’ in other areas: Stratford, Hackney (East London), Brixton (SW London), Birmingham. Overseas: Jamaica and of course Nigeria (you can read more about Nigeria on our Child Gospel Mission page)
In all our tent Crusades ‘Children’s Specials’ are also held, enabling us to reach children, in the major cities, who come into our ‘Canvas Cathedral.’
