Billy Graham turns 96 with message for UK followers

He's marked the day by launching a new video for UK audiences, 'The Cross', with the aim of helping UK churches reach out to their communities.

In the film, the 96-year-old is seen at his home in Matreat, North Carolina discussing his personal stories of faith, which includes one from Grammy award winning hip hop artist Lecrae.

Simon Barrington who's executive Director of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association told listeners to Premier's 'News Hour' that despite his ailing health Billy Graham remains strong: "His eyesight and hearing is failing somewhat, he still keeps up with current affairs and has devotions with his team everyday and realises the need in our world for people to hear the good news of Jesus and to respond to that."

Simon Barrington, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association:

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
