Lois Powell: April 2017
Lois Powell, a former member here before moving up north, sends us this invitation:
"I have been led to the Archbishop of Canterbury's website: thykingdomcome.global which is drawing ALL Christians to special prayer during the period 25th May — 4th June. All the major denominations are 'on board': Pentecostal and Evangelical, Anglican and Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and Coptic, Protestant ...
Already around the world Christians have pledged to pray and has there ever been more need? (Human trafficking/brutal dictators/child pornography/worship of material goods/reliance on horrendous weaponry/abuse of many kinds/persecution of minority faiths...)
So I would invite you to visit the website above and join this movement. Our churches can also get involved via videos and prayer ideas. Please pass the word!
