Date(s) - Saturday, 18th November, 2017
10:30 am - 1:30 pm
Faversham, St Mary of Charity
Prayer connects us to God: the air we all breathe, our magnetic north, our daily bread. Through prayer we are rooted in God and discern a direction of travel. As a diocesan family, we are a praying people, together in community, rooted in a shared life of prayer.
At the Open Diocesan Synod on March 11th Bishop Trevor issued a call to prayer to the diocese. A call to renew our life together in prayer and join together in a Diocesan Day of Prayer on 18 November 2017. From Margate to Maidstone, from Sheppey to Sandwich, from Dungeness to Deal: we will be called to share in prayer to renew us for God’s service.
The day is for anyone of any age who wants to come and pray together in our diocesan community for a renewed world. There will be opportunities for everybody to get involved in all kinds of ways, whoever and wherever you are.
The event in Faversham will run as follows:
10.00 Doors open, refreshments served
10.30 ENTER: the event starts with a welcome from Bishop Trevor
10.45 ENCOUNTER: worship together with Scripture and Song
11.30 EXPLORE: the shared hour of prayer
12.30 EAT: a bread, cheese and soup lunch will be served (free of charge)
