Bangor Worldwide Missionary Convention
Unique is probably the best word to describe the Bangor Worldwide Missionary Convention. As far as is known, there is no other Convention quite like it in the United Kingdom.
Founded in 1937 by Mr Herbert J. Mateer, the
Convention has continued without a break as
an annual event ever since.
Today, the original purpose of the Convention is
as valid today as it was when it first began – to
promote and support world mission.
With meetings held over eight days, it is an
event of considerable significance in the
missionary life of Northern Ireland.
