1 December 2019 Wesley Impact! TV

In this week's episode of Wesley Impact! TV, Rev Keith Garner looks Matthew 24 and asks the question: are you ready for the return of Jesus?

You’ll also hear from Reverend Anna Zhang, one of the ministers of the Wesley Mission Chinese Congregation, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

Plus, we hear a special performance from Craig Gower and the Wesley Impact Band of ‘Come Thou Long Expected Jesus’.

Interview: Reverend Anna Zhang 

The Wesley Mission Chinese congregation is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. The congregation began in 1989 and today includes weekly Bible study groups, a Sunday school, and a Chinese library.

Reverend Anna Zhang is one of the ministers serving this congregation, and as she explains, “in Chinese culture, 30 is a perfect number to mark a person who's mature in his life.” This celebration is especially significant as the church reflects on how God has brought many of their members through particularly hard times in China in the 1980s to peace and ongoing faith here in Australia.

Hear Rev Keith Garner and Anna talk more about this on Wesley Impact! TV this week.
