Press Release: Korean Christians descend on the New Forest

Next week will see 600 Korean Christians visiting the UK, with teams visiting 30 locations throughout the UK. One such team led by pastor HyunChul Shim will be staying at Lyndhurst as part of the Local Evangelical Alliance in the New Forest 'Prayer Mission 2015'. Another such team will be hosted by the St Thomas' Church, Fair Oak, Eastleigh.

LEAF Administrator Brian Edgeley said "Today the Korean church is thriving and those Christians visiting us come from a church with congregations numbering 10,000 strong. They are a very respectable people and hold the United Kingdom in high regard because one of the first Evangelical Christian Missionaries to Korea 150 years ago came from our shores. In fact it was Welshman Robert Jermain Thomas who made such an impact on Korea; he worked for the London Bible Society and travelled to China and Korea in the 1860's."

The visiting group of Korean's will be hosted by Revd. Dr. James Bruce at St Michael's and All Angels Church Lyndhurst but will also be visiting other New Forest churches throughout their stay. Meetings have been planned in Lyndhurst, Ashley, Hythe, Lymington, Tiptoe, Winsor and the Waterside area with a final public service of thanksgiving and testimony scheduled for the evening of Sunday 28th June at St Michael's and All Angels Church.
