LONDON WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN FROM 14TH AUGUST WITH PUSH


PUSH! (Praise Until Something Happen), an annual event, started in 2008. Its objective was to gather people and build an altar of praise & worship that will invoke the presence of God, and cause men to have an unforgettable encounter with the King.

Since praise manifests God’s presence; we also realize that praise repels the presence of the enemy, Satan. An atmosphere which is filled with sincere worship and praise to God by humble and contrite hearts is disgusting to the Devil. He fears the power in the name of Jesus, and flees from the Lord’s habitation in praise. “Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I show the salvation of God” (Psalms 50:23).
Guests are expected to start arriving the
Open Heavens Christian Center, 194-198 Broadfields Avenue Edgware, HA8 ATF London, venue for the 8th edition at 6:00pm (prompt) while the stage lights come on and the drums roll at exactly 6:30pm on Friday 14th of August 2015. 


enquiry lines: 07931167531, 07862729455, 07969 803 849
