Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2018: January 18-25th

the right hand of GodJoin us for services during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity in January. The theme this year is: "Your right hand, O Lord, glorious in power" - "Ta main droite, Seigneur, éclatante de puissance" (Exodus 15:6), put together by an ecumenical group of Churches in the Caribbean.

At least once a year, Christians are reminded of Jesus’ prayer for his disciples that “they may be one so that the world may believe” (see John 17.21). Hearts are touched and Christians come together to pray for their unity. Congregations and parishes all over the world exchange preachers or arrange special celebrations and prayer services. The event that touches off this special experience is the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.

Oak Hall Expeditions: Travel to Jerusalem 

oak hall expeditionsLinked with my ‘Home Church’ back in the UK is a Christian Holiday company, called Oak Hall expeditions which offers a range of holidays, all over the world, with a Christian message. But by far the most popular of the summer trips is the Bible Study Tours of Israel.

The help of volunteers helps make these trips as accessible as possible, and I am such a volunteer. Trips are divided between time in Jerusalem, where we will stay within short walking distance of the Old City, and Galilee, where we will stay on the shores of the lake; with an overnight stop in Bethlehem in between.

Activities include visiting Old and New Testament sites, a boat trip on the Sea of Galilee, and swimming in the Dead Sea, and evening talks by the accompanying Speaker on a biblical subject (this year I believe my speaker will be doing a study on Mark’s Gospel). The Speaker will also lead us in morning prayers, which in Galilee will be on the edge of the lake as the sun rises; a truly amazing experience.

Please feel free to contact me for more information (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), I would be happy to give you more information. To read more, click here.
