On Monday, 23 May 2016 we are delighted to have Ash Kotecha back as our speaker. Ash was raised a Hindu in Malawi south-east Africa but came to faith in 1979 after a dramatic out of body experience. He went to Bible school where he met Sharon his wife and they have one daughter Esther. Having worked as an assistant pastor, in 1987, Ash and Sharon pioneered a church in Central London which ten years later, having grown to around 200 people, they handed over as God was calling them to the evangelistic field.
Ash’s healing ministry, for which he is particularly well known, began soon after his conversion as he faced tremendous persecution from family and friends. When Ash’s father suffered a slipped disc in his back they blamed Ash for bringing a curse upon them and challenged his faith in Jesus. Ash prayed for his father who was instantly healed and gave his life to Christ. After that his sister in law diagnosed with mouth cancer was also instantly healed and committed her life to Jesus. One by one family and friends received healing and turned to Christ and the persecution stopped.
“The Filling Station” is intended to serve rural communities and available to all Church denominations. It is a facility to bring like-minded people together from all streams of the Christian faith for excellent teaching, worship, testimonies and prayer ministry. The Filling Station initiative, which started in the West Country, is explained by the founder and director, Rev’d Richard Fothergill, on the main website: www.thefillingstation.org. The website lists all Filling Stations, news and forthcoming events.
Ash will be praying for the sick. So do come and invite anyone who needs healing to hear Ash Kotecha speak about ‘The Gift of Healing’ on Monday, 23rd May 2016 – 7.00 for 7.30pm – coffee – cake – chat – excellent worship – talk – prayer ministry
