LEAF Leaders Lunch with Yinka Oyekan

Yinka Oyekan speaking at confereneceWith this year HOPE 2018 drawing to a close we are looking forward to hearing from Yinka Oyekan: Senior Leader The Gate Reading*, at the next Leaders Lunch on September 27th 2018.

Yinka, originally from Nigeria is also the founder of THE TURNING, a rapidly growing initiative that seeks to empower churches to reach out to people on the streets of their neighbourhoods. This is happening across the UK, Europe and America. He is speaking at various Christian conferences this year.

Good New Crusade

Don Double with Yinka OyekanYinka came to the UK in 1998 to learn under the tutalage of Cornish evagelist Don Double of the Good News Crusade. This has given him a great heritage - not that he needed it. His father was the King (Oba) of Lagos! Adeyinka Oba Oyekan II was installed as Oba of Lagos where he reigned as Monarch between 1965 and 2003. Oba Oyekan was only the second Christian Oba of Lagos and had been a Sunday School teacher before taking office. This has given his son Yinka a wonderfully rich Chritian heritage which comes across in his ministry.

This meeting is primarily for Church Leaders but interested church members are welcome along too. A buffet meal and refreshments will be provided with the entrance fee and there will be a time of corporate praise and worship.


Come and hear him talk about the Reading Revival and how it has led to the foundation of THE TURNING and the planned Mission England in 2019. Coming after the completion of the 'HOPE 2018 Year of Mission' headed up by Roy Crowne, the beginning of the year will see churches from every borough in London reaching out on a mission which will see over 60 churches working together simultaneously on evangelistic street mission in Mission London which will kick off the Mission to England.

There is a proposed Turning Bournemouth 2019 being planned for June next year. Yinka will be speaking about this after the Leaders Lunch at a public meeting at Lansdowne Church Woodbury Avenue Bournemouth in the evening. All are welcome.
