Church leaders invited to plan Norwich Civic Prayer Event
Across the country the Cinnamon Network has helped Christians organise Civic Prayer Events for their towns, cities and villages. Now leaders of churches and Christian organisations in Norwich are being invited to plan one for their city.
On Monday, March 19 at 12.30pm a planning meeting will be held over lunch at the House of Prayer for leaders of churches and Christian organisations in Norwich to come together to plan a Civic Prayer Event.
Representatives from the Cinnamon Network will be at the planning meeting, which has been initiated by Jill Gower, Director of Call to Prayer, Norwich Methodist Minister Rev Nigel Fox and Dominic De Souza, Leader of One Church in Norwich.
The national Christian charity, Cinnamon Network, founded by Matt Bird, has equipped and inspired church leaders across the country to organise Civic Prayer Events within their communities.
The aim of these events is to pray into key community issues and build relationships between civic leaders and local churches. Typically church leaders get in touch with community leaders – from the police, council, education, health, business and media – to identify needs within the city. Using that information, a Civic Prayer Event is then organised, often over breakfast, inviting both community and church leaders to hear about these issues, to build relationships and to pray for them.
Dominic De Souza said: “We are looking to gather church leaders over lunch so that they can find out more and contribute their ideas.” The proposal is to plan an event for Norwich in Autumn 2018.
If you are a leader of a church or Christian organisation in Norwich and would like to attend the planning meeting please RSVP via this link.
