Fr. Soji Olikkal

A heavenly ministry of the Word who became flesh led by the divine helper The Holy Spirit, through the hands of Fr. Soji Olikkal and team. A full anointed day with our Lord Jesus Christ who do miracles and extraordinary deeds among us. we welcome every one of you to join the heavenly banquet as Jesus says in John 1:39 ‘ He said to them come and you will see so they went and saw where he was staying and they stayed with him that day. It was about 4 in the afternoon.’

Second saturday gathering started in mid 2010 at the Blessed Robert Grissold church Balsall Common by Fr. Soji Olikkal and Fr Sebastian Arikat . As St Paul says in Ephesians 3:20 ‘ the power of the spirit of Jesus who work within us who is able to accomplish far more than all we ask or imagine’ God took the control of the second saturday convention as God wanted a ministry in this part of the world. By the end of 2010 the convention at Blessed Robert Grissold church couldn’t accommodate all the faithful and was moved to a new place at St Cateherines church Birmingham.The Lord Jesus who blessed us through Matthew 28-19, 20 and promised us to be with us always until the end of the age took the convention to a new level in May 2011 and the convention was moved to Bethel convention centre West Bromwich By January 2012 the number of kids rose to 1000. In February 2012 when the Convention was moved to Malvern more than 8000 people including children gathered to receive word of God. Fr Xavier Khan Vattayil was the main Preacher. Now every month’s service  is led by Fr. Soji Olikkal and Fr. Shyju Naduvathaniyil.
