There will be a number of wider church based initiatives over the next few weeks in relation to the NI ABORTION LAW including:
- CARE are organising 40 days of prayer and fasting starting on Monday 19th They are recommending some sort of a Daniel fast (see Daniel 10:2-3) where he chose amongst other things not to eat “choice food”. This is not a legalistic fast in any way and some may decide to fast from TV or reduce their time on social media, in order to focus more on God. Our purpose is so that we may pray for our nation in a deeper and more passionate way. We intend to post daily devotions and prayers on Facebook from the 19th. Please follow us on Facebook and join us in whatever way you can.
- Prayer event at St. Anne’s Cathedral at 8pm on Monday 2nd September
- silent protest walk at Stormont beginning at 7pm on Friday 6th September
Please speak to either Jeff or your elder for further information.
OFFICE – Please email announcements etc this week before Thursday. If you, or someone you know, is going into hospital, please let the office know.
