Event Description

Friday 3rd May, 2019

Light a fire in my bones that an ocean cannot drown

Give me hope, give me strength until my work is done
(from the song Keep the Banner Flying High)

Graham writes: “It’s a time to look upwards and fill our vision afresh with Christ as we worship. It’s a time to gather as God’s people; churches and generations together in our Father’s house, to attune our ears to his voice and pray blessing, healing and reconciliation upon our nation and neighbourhoods.”

The event is approximately 2 hours long, and includes a break of about 20 minutes for refreshments. The atmosphere will be relaxed and informal, worshipful and participative.
