Between 25th May and 4th June, communities and churches around the world are gathering together to pray for their friends, families and neighbours and for the wider world. Find out more…
Our churches in Thornthwaite, Braithwaite and Newlands are always open for prayer, but during these 10 days, there is a special invitation to make time to pray.
There will be ideas for prayer available at all three churches, and prayer activity stations suitable for all ages at St Herbert’s, Braithwaite.
COME AND JOIN IN A WAVE OF PRAYER
We are asked to pray, plan and prepare for the Moving Mountains mission which will take place 8-11 March 2018.
Something like 35 teams of 4-5 people each led by a Bishop or senior Methodist, URC or Salvation Army Church leader will come to Cumbria. One of the teams will be here with us in Cockermouth and Keswick.
The Keswick Mission Community, with Churches Together in Keswick will be exploring if it wants to put on one or two joint events. Here in the parish, the challenge is to think about how the visiting team might help us with activities we’re already doing or perhaps a new event which will help us reach out further.
We’ve got plenty of time pray and plan. We’ve got lots to build on. We’re specifically asked to run an enquirers course after the mission, so that’s something specific to work towards.
Moving Mountains is the Cumbria wide mission taking place 8-11 March 2018. How are we going to be taking part?
Imagine if everyone had the opportunity to discover what God wants for their lives…
God for all, you reached out to the world in your Son Jesus Christ.
Help us to reach out in faith and love and witness to all.
God for all, you send your Holy Spirit to empower and gift your Church.
By your Spirit help us
grow in unity,
grow as followers of Jesus Christ,
and grow your kingdom in Cumbria and in this world. Amen.
