Ghana?s Alabaster Box continues to make the country proud in the UK as they are billed to spice this year?s Easter for audiences in London with two concerts and a participation in the largest Christian gathering in London, dubbed Festival of Life.

This comes after the group placed Ghanaian gospel music on the global map with a surprising appearance on BBC World?s Focus on Africa TV early this month. The group was the first gospel group in the world, and the first Ghanaian group to be on the show.

The BBC show went viral on social media and on other platforms, leading to invitations in the UK and from other part of the world.

Group leader, and News Editor of Multimedia?s Adom FM, Sammy Dowuona said following the BBC show, the group has been invited to participate in Festival of Life (FOL), a one-day interdenominational gathering of over 40,000 Christian adults and several additional children in London on Good Friday, April 18, 2014.

FOL is organized by the 670 branches of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in London, and is hosted by the church?s General Overseer, Rev. Dr. Enoch A. Adeboye himself.

Sammy said ?this is the second time we would be participating in FOL in London. The first time was in November 2007 when we ministered to over 36,000 people at The Dome in London.?

This time round, FOL is being held at the London Excel Centre in the Docklands, East London.

Sammy said the November 2007 FOL was a spiritual moment for the group, ministering to such a large gathering for the first time, and they expect this year?s FOL to be more impactful on the group.

?We are also praying that God will use us to bless many lives as we minister the way God has commissioned us to,? he said.

After FOL, the group is also billed to perform in two ?Special Easter Concerts with Alabaster Box? on the nights of Easter Saturday and Easter Sunday, at the Alperton Baptist Church, headed by Ghanaian pastor Rev. Claude Halm and his wife Mrs. Trudie Halm.

Sammy said the two concerts would be evangelistic in nature because of the season and also because the church is located in a Hindi and Asian dominated area so the concert is planned to invite people in the community to come hear the gospel through a unique kind of music ministry.

Rev. Claude Halm believes the uniqueness of Alabaster Box?s music could be an effective tool to bring home the message of salvation in Christ Jesus to a people who would not normally listen to the preaching of the gospel.

Sammy says the group is very much aware of its duty to use the uniqueness of their gift and ministry to draw men unto Christ and that is exactly what they would be seeking to do in those two consecutive Easter concerts.

The group, according to Sammy, would be also be ministering at Praise Chapel in Kilburn on the morning of Easter Sunday, prior to the evening concert. Praise Chapel is founded and headed by Pastor Kofi Banful and his wife Mrs. Jane Banful.

In the post-Easter season, Alabaster Box would be Ministering in a concert at Sureway Christian Ministry, and Assemblies of God Church in Herne Hill, London on Tuesday April 22, 2014.

Then between April 23 and 28 the group will shuttle between London and Bath for various performances.

On Wednesday, April 23, 2014, Alabaster Box will minister at Integrity Conference held by Trinity Baptist Church (TBC), led by Ghana?s Rev. Dr. Kingsley Appiagyei. The group will then travel to Bath on April 25th for a performance that night and on Saturday morning. They will then return to London on Saturday for a concert at TBC that night and for church service at TBC on Sunday morning.

The group will then travel back to Bath on Sunday for another concert at 16.30 and for another performance at a school on Monday morning, April 28th. They will finally return to Ghana on April 30th.
