In a modern fast-paced city like Lagos, we are burnt, bruised and battered by traffic, life issues and struggles, forgetting that there is a place of complete rest and surrender in God.
It is in response to this that a new movement called City on the Hill (COTH) is organizing a SOAK; it is a spirit-led musical voyage into the heart of God – It is spontaneous worship, weaving in conversations, scripture, spoken word and poetry. It offers the opportunity to relax, unwind and receive from Him!
SOAK will take place at the Mouse Pad, 8, Mayaki Usman Street, off Wole Ariyo Street, off Admiralty Way Lekki Phase 1 Time is 5 p.m., on Sunday, July 5, 2015.
While speak at a briefing on the event, the team lead, Pastor Ferdy Adimefe of the COTH movement said “For some of us worship is not about the entertainment, it is an experience of coming into that place where we to give ourselves wholly to Him. It is more than songs; it is more than the social experience, it is an exchange with our loving and gracious father.”
Answering to the question of what COTH is about; Ferdy explained that “COTH is an evangelical movement that is committed to reaching the next generation through creative and artistic expression of the gospel. We hope to organize programs such as dance classes, soirees, theatre shows, music concerts, plug in sessions of bible study, but essentially they are great opportunities to discover and experience God’s love, find joy and experience fulfilment. The heart behind everything we do is to reach people for Christ; it is about transforming lives, propagating cultural renewal and reforming society. That’s what it’s all about. We are here to help each person take their next step towards God and towards serving people.
At COTH, we believe we are called to make a difference; to be the change. Join us and make a difference. It caters to people from a wide range of backgrounds, both the churched and the unchurched. The journey is about understanding how God’s incredible love and grace changed our lives.
Friendships are gifts to be cherished – having true friends is the way of life at COTH. Relationships are the heartbeat of COTH. It is about deep rooted friendships with God, and with authentic people, who are not afraid of being themselves. There is a circle of friendships within the community and a strong, shared sense of identity. Friendships grow and faith is built in our fun meetings. You can laugh, grow, and serve with people who genuinely care about you! We intend to keep following where He leads, by reaching more communities for Christ, one friendship at a time.”
