(Worthy News) – A professor of African Christianity at a University in England says that the prayers of European missionaries to Africa centuries ago are being answered by a wave of Christian immigrants to the increasingly secular European continent.

Dr. Harvey Kwiyani of Liverpool Hope University, who grew up in an African village that received the gospel from British missionary David Livingstone, said that the “blessed reflex” prayed for by so many missionaries to Africa from Europe is happening today.

“[The blessed reflex is the idea] that there’s going to be a reflex in the future when Christians from Africa from Asia would come back to strengthen British or European Christianity,” Kwiyani told CBN News. “In London, on any given Sunday, over 60% of people who attend church are black Africans going to African Pentecostal churches.”

British people from African backgrounds now comprise over half of London’s church attendance, as the British Social Attitudes survey records that 53% of British adults say they have no religion, compared with 31% who said the same thing in 1983.
