Preaching commenced in 1996. In 1999 responsibility of Nepal passed from CBM to ACBM. The ACBM has continued pastoral work with the local ecclesias and assisting brothers and sisters with preaching to contacts.

2016 Update:

In Nepal the memorial meeting is held on Saturdays. On 25 April 2015 at 11:56 Nepal Standard Time our brothers and sisters in Nepal were meeting around the table of the Lord when a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck. This was followed by a second quake on 12 May. By God’s grace all our brothers and sisters were ok. But it was an extremely distressing time as over 8000 people lost their lives and many more were displaced. The ecclesias in Nepal were able to help those around them providing food, shelter and comfort. The Chabahil ecclesial hall was damaged with cracks appearing in the walls and floor. Some of our brothers and sisters’ houses were damaged, some extensively. The home that is used in Sitali for meetings collapsed, With the generous support of the brotherhood worldwide the ACBM has been able to assist with the repair and rebuilding work. In the face of all the hardships the truth continues to grow as our brothers and sisters continue to proclaim the truth of the gospel.

On most days of the week between the two ecclesias in Kathmandu the members are able to meet together around the word of God. In late September or early October Dashain falls and is a very popular festival in Nepal. It is the longest and the most auspicious festival in the Nepalese annual calendar. It’s at this time our brothers and sisters in Nepal are able to come together and have their bible week. A local function centre is booked and brothers and sisters attend each day. Being local allows older brothers and sisters that can’t travel far to come and share in the fellowship. Our brothers and sisters love to have the company of fieldworkers that come to assist and support them in the work of the truth.
