The Arabic Community Church
The church was started in 2006 and it has around 25 Christians from Muslim backgrounds and is slowly growing with new families attending. The church worships at Southern Cross Evangelical Church on Sundays with a Bible Study once a month after Sunday worship.
The church is involved in evangelism and mission to the local community in and around Brighton and Hove and this year (7-25 August 2016) will be conducting a Street Evangelism Project.
The Pastor, the Revd Gadalla Tiab, is also involved in putting together a Christian TV programme containing 13 episodes about his calling to ministry and what is involved in being a minister. These episodes will also be transferred to a book. The programmes will be aired in May this year in the Middle East, Europe and the USA. The Catholic Church (with whom they closely work) has asked for another programme which will be based on Paul’s letter to the Philippians. There will also be two live episodes, one about Hezekiah and the other about forgiveness.
