Crack cocaine, knives surrendered during London church service


Knives and drugs handed over in after altar call

Originally Published in Premier

Class A drugs and three “massive” knives were among a haul of items handed over at a Pentecostal church in London last weekend.

Heroin, crack cocaine and five blades were surrendered at SPAC Nation by a “newcomer” following an altar call on Sunday, leaders said.

Senior pastor, Tobi Adegboyega said: “Our determination to clean the streets is stronger than ever before and the items handed in are a testament to that.”

The knives and illicit substances are being passed on to police, according to SPAC Nation which holds a weapon and drug amnesty every week.

Some 113 people gave their lives to Jesus when the altar call was made. SPAC Nation says 1 000 people regularly attend its weekly service.

Adegboyega continued: “Each time we take in such items, it means one less person who will go to jail or end up dead.

“It is up to us as a community to do what we can to save these young people.

“SPAC Nation as a church and a force in the community has a dogged determination and a passion for young people to clean up the streets and give young people hope for their future.

“We will keep on doing this one knife pickup at a time.”
