CHRISTIANS of all backgrounds and churches are once again set to meet at the ‘Omagh Coffee Bar’ this Saturday to unite in worship, music and prayer.
The informal event, for all ages, takes place at the Emmanuel Christian Centre on the last Saturday of every month.
Guest speaker this weekend will be Armour Young from Omagh, who has encouraged ‘anyone and everyone’ to attend – regardless of what stage you are at on your Christian journey.
“What I love about the Omagh Coffee Bar is that it’s so welcoming to everyone,” Armour described. “It’s a relaxed and casual night for everyone to come together and worship.
“I try to make any message that I share accessible and relevant to real life: God didn’t give us the Bible so we could throw about impressive religious words that don’t actually mean anything for everyday life.
“I’m confident that He wants to speak to each of us in a way that actually impacts us and I believe He will on Saturday through worship, my message and hanging out after.”
Armour added, “Christianity is not about following a bunch of rules so you can look down on others. It’s not about being perfect. It’s not about going to church every week, and doing a lot of religious activity.
“It’s actually a lot simpler than that. Being a Christian means that I get to have a relationship with God because of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection.
“It works pretty much like any relationship: I get to talk with Him, and I listen to what He has to say. And as I grow in the relationship, He keeps healing, transforming and bringing purpose to my life and the lives of those around me.
“It’s all about falling more and more in love with this guy Jesus, who we’ve all heard about, but who turns out to be so much more than we could have ever imagined.
“Whether you’re following Jesus or you aren’t sure what faith is all about, I’m confident that the event will add value to your life. I’d love to see you there.”
