Remembering the late John Wimber

A MEMORIAL service was held on November 24th to commemorate the life and ministry of John Wimber. The pastor, preacher, composer and singer, whose Vineyard stream of churches has been one of the most significant spiritual movements in the post-war church, died after a brain haemorrhage on the 16th November following a fall in his California home. Various worship leaders and musicians including Andy Park, Eddie Espinosa, Terry Butler, Scott Underwood and Cindy Rothmeier participated in the worship band at the service. All the music used in the service, with the exception of two songs, was written by Wimber. Others in attendance included the Crystal Cathedral's Robert Schuller and Holy Trinity Brompton's Sandy Millar. The Wimber family, including grandchildren, were present while John's son, record producer Chris Wimber, was wheeled on stage in a wheel chair. He has suffered the loss of most of his hair because of chemo treatment for cancer.
