Building on last years’ successful Pentecost event at Chichester Cathedral there are now exciting plans in place for this year to celebrate Thy Kingdom Come. Last year a prayer pilgrimage, Led by Bishop Richard, culminated at the cathedral with hundreds of people from all corners of the diocese in attendance.
This year the event will take place at the Dome in Brighton on Sunday, June 9.
Booked as the keynote speaker is Roy Crown from Hope Together. Roy became HOPE Together Executive Director in March 2010 and was previously the National Director of Youth for Christ in Britain for 12 years.
Stuart Barbour, acclaimed singer and songwriter from Sussex, will be providing first class worship music and Revd Martin Poole will be applying his usual Beyond style creativity using both traditional and contemporary ways to provide a stunning visual effect in a way that helps everyone to worship God and be inspired by the Spirit.
PRAYER SPACE INFORMATION From 2pm-6pm the Brighton Dome will be open for prayer. There will be three prayer spaces – family, healing & contemplative.
FAMILY The family space will be accessible for all ages at any time and will offer an opportunity to engage in creative activities on the theme of ‘The Kingdom of God is like…’. There will be a multisensory soft play area for toddlers and lots of things to make and do which can be taken home afterwards.
HEALING The healing space will be run in two blocks with the Bethesda Healing Rooms team in attendance from 2pm-4pm and a team from the Chanctonbury Churches from 4pm-6pm. In addition the Acapella Lifestream Gospel Singers who use music as healing prayer will sing at 2pm and 3pm for a short time. This is a drop-in space when anyone can come for personal prayer for healing.
CONTEMPLATIVE This space will be run by the Brighton & Hove Centre for Spirituality and will include a prayer labyrinth and various workshops on different types of contemplative prayer as well as there being open time for reflective prayer. Numbers are limited for particular workshops so please book in through Eventbrite.
