A New Sunday School in Antigua
The story of the new Sunday School in Antigua
In August 2022, two fieldworkers arrived in Antigua from Nairobi and planned to remain there until this coming August. The fieldworkers are Bro. Amos Natembea and Bro. Albert Mwashi from Kenya. Bro. Clive Solomon has for decades supported the work in Antigua and with the help of the CBMC, was able to arrange for these brothers to commit to a year-long service in Antigua.
Their focus was to generate contacts and teach the truth of the gospel. However, a pleasant surprise has turned out to be that the focus of their work is with the enthusiastic Sunday School. The Antigua Ecclesia has three sisters and eleven Sunday School participants, ranging in age between 2–24, with several regular visitors.
Bolstered with recently supplied Bibles, hymn books, and first principles courses from the Christadelphian Save the Children Fund, spreading the gospel mainly goes on through the Sunday School program.
A recent visit from the Tudor and Turton families from the UK in February 2023 confirmed the vibrant environment in this little ecclesia of sisters, children, and some friends. They provided a couple of exhortations, a Sunday School class, and a Bible class to support the work of the Kenyan brothers. God willing, in August, the Kenyan brethren will return home to their families and ecclesia. Our hope is there will be volunteers to continue the work in Antigua in the future.
