A WELL-known evangelist, author and speaker is set to speak at St Helens Parish Church next month.

Eric Delve is scheduled to appear at the town centre church’s next Live at 7pm service on Sunday March 17.

Mr Delve will be remembered by many for leading the “Down to Earth” mission in St Helens in 1984, at which many people became Christians.

A church spokesman said she hoped that people who remember that mission would come along to hear the message he brings to the town nearly 30 years later – and also bring a friend.

Entry to the service is free of charge and the doors are set to open at 6.30pm for pre-service refreshments.

Vicar David Eastwood also spoke of his delight at Mr Delve accepting his invitation to return to St Helens.

He said: “Eric had a profound impact on the town when he was last here and I know that many will want to come and hear him once more as he speaks about the relevance of Jesus Christ in 2013.”

Eric Delve is also set to speak at Wells of Revival at the St Helens Christian Life Centre on Monday March 18 at 7.30pm.
