Day of Prayer 2018

We came in through the the worship Gazebo expressing  the Living Water flowing through broken pots of clay. God can use us in our brokenness .

 

The back drop speaks of God's beautiful creation.

The main focus of the worship tent was the empty Cross of the Risen Christ; there was a candle signifying Jesus Christ, the light of the world; the Bible, the inspired word of God;
The bread and the wine, emblems of Jesus sacrifice for each and every person on the planet.

 

 

 

Displays included our mission work locally, in the wider UK, and with partners overseas.

We were reminded of

  • Partner missionaries Annie & Dan Dupree, and children Charis, Isaac and Amaya
