In 2011 a group of people tried to get the restortion started. Sadly, it didn’t appear to be Gods timing and after much consideration the trustee’s decided it was diligent to lay aside the Bowland street project.
In a time of worship at the Thornton Chapel, Pastor Vincent Mann found himself transported to the Mission in Bowland Street where he looked towards the platform. Everything was clean and renovated and he heard God speak clearly saying ‘take back My Land’’ at the next moment he was back in Kipping Chapel. From that moment on he was waiting for God to press the start button.
In October 2016 Bowland street came up for lease and Irene from the Acorn Bible bookshop Bradford, noticed the sign. She contacted Pastor Vincent on the 29th October 2016 as she knew he was keen to restore the building. Irene got all the information and phone number for him. He prayed and opened his bible, his eyes immediately fell on Mathew 24v14. He took this as being confirmation to go ahead as he knew it lined up with Smith Wigglesworth’s 1947 prophecy. Contact was made with the estate agent and they started the ball rolling. Pastor Vincent suddenly knew this could come to fruition. A time was arranged to visit the site on Monday the 31st October 2016 and a business plan was created. On the 8th November 2016 the deposit was paid and the lease was put into the hands of the agents for final preparation and finally signed 21st January 2017.
Is it possible that the Smith Wigglesworth 1947 end time prophecy is to be started from his own mission in Bowland Street?
