SEBAArabic Community Church

  • A congregation of Arabic speaking people from the Middle East, based at the Southern Cross Evangelical Church in Portslade, Brighton

  • Encouraged by a Evangelism Street Project in 2017, the church will repeat this again in 2018 and then run regular outreach projects in Brighton and Hove through the year

This has been another fruitful and blessed year through God’s presence and guidance in the UK and Egypt. The church worships together on Sundays with a Bible Study once a month after Sunday worship, and a regular Prayer Meeting on Fridays.
Church news and activities:
  • Church meetings run well and there is a good spirit within the church fellowship at this time.
  • Around 50 new families in Brighton and Hove are regularly visited, which includes sharing Word of God with them and prayer.
  • The Evangelism Street Project for 10 days in August 2017 was fruitful, encouraging and inspiring.  We met around 170 people from The Gulf, Palestine, Algeria, Tunisia, Syria, Pakistan and Afghanistan. 
  • Two people received Jesus Christ as Saviour, the one from the Gulf now is strong and active in evangelism among his family and community.  Halleluiah!   
  • The Prayer Meeting has a great impact on the life and ministry of the church. Many of us have seen our lives change and also receiving answers to our prayers for our difficult issues and problems.  A member said “God works with us as a family more than ever before, that because he hears our prayers”
  • The Arabic Christian Church and Arabic Community Church will join in The Evangelism Street Project in August this year.  We will then run outreach in Brighton and Hove together every other month.  

Mission in Egypt:
  • The Arabic Community Church grows in its Mission in Egypt alongside other Evangelical Pastors and local church leaders.
  • Evangelism through sports in Egypt.

He travelled to USA from 18 January to 5 February 2018 in this capacity with Christian Reformed Church (CRC) in North America. The trip included New York, New Jersey, Michigan (Grand Rapids) and California.   

Things to praise God for:
  • Arabic Community Church continues to grow in the Holy Spirit and mission activities.
  • God was glorified in the Evangelical Street Project, and praise God for those who accepted Jesus Christ as a Saviour, and are now being used by God in their families and in the community.  
  • The Prayer meeting that makes big difference in church members lives.
  • New experience with CRC in North America. 

ACC2018Things to ask God for:
  • Blessings for prayer meetings and the new people who became members recently, especially those who came from a Muslim background. And for a new Syrian family in Coventry, pray to God to plant a new Evangelical meeting there.
  • For providing and resourcing our ministry in Brighton and Hove and in the wider Egyptian Mission
  • For good church leaders to be raised up for the future in Brighton and Hove
  • For Pastor Gadalla to be able to carry on his Masters course. And guide him in his Church mission work in Egypt.

Things to thank God for:
  • For the funding from Baptist Home Mission to enable the church to continue.
  • For all SEBA Leaders who enable Gadalla to feel cared for and supported in his ministry.
  • BUGB for providing a bursary for the pastor’s study this year.
  • For congregations who support Arabic Community Church and who invite pastor Gadalla to share God’s Word in Sundays
