THE big church that had to make way for the 2012 Olympics is getting ready for its 18th annual week-long conference with three pastors, four bishops, three doctors of theology... and a prophetess.

This gathering by Kingsway International Christian Centre in East London from August 24 to 31 is about 'the wellbeing of the entire person,' spirit, soul and body.

It is also focussing on 'economic empowerment' in the current climate to 'improve life with the principles of the Church.'

A youth event called What da X is being run for teenagers alongside the main conference.

Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo is hosting the eight days with Kingsway International's founder Bishop TD Jakes at East London's Excel Centre in Custom House from August 24 to 31.

Guest peakers arriving from America and Africa include Bishop David Oyedepo from Nigeria, Dr Mensah Otabil from Ghana, Bishop Tudor Bismark from Zimbabwe and Prophetess Juanita Bynum, Pastor Robb Thompson, Bishop Eddie Long, Dr Jamal Bryant and Dr Bill Winston from the USA.

Conference times are: Sundays August 24 and 31, 10am-2pm and 6.30-10pm, Monday to Friday, August 25-29, 10am-12pm, 2pm-4pm and 6.30pm-10pm.

Kingsway International ran services with up to 12,000 worshippers every Sunday at its former centre in Waterden-road in Hackney Wick until the 2012 Olympics Authority took it over last year to make way for the new stadium grounds.

The church had to move out to a new locati0n at Hoe Street in Walthamstow, where it now holds its Sunday services, with a growing number of smaller branches and chapels around London.
