'Thy Kingdom Come': global wave of prayer 25th May - 4th June

thy kingdom comeAnswer the call to Prayer!

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to know Jesus.  What started in 2016 as an invitation from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York to the Church of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.  Take part and "Pray it - Picture it - Post it" and add your daily prayer to the Prayer Walls below:  

During the 11 days of Thy Kingdom Come, it is hoped that everyone who participates will deepen their friendship with Jesus, bring other to know Jesus or know him better, and come to know that every aspect of their life is the stuff of prayer. 

Join the global wave of prayer and sign up to Pledge 2 Pray here.

Bordeaux choir to sing in Royan: 10th June, 17:00pm

Think about taking a day trip to beautiful Royan, to support the Bordeaux choir! (beach towel and suntan lotion, oysters and a glass of wine for lunch, need we say more?) Saturday June 10th at 17.00: A Concert of English Sacred Music, by the Bordeaux Anglican Church Choir, at the Eglise Notre-Dame de Royan in the Charente-Maritime.

Richard Hunt and the Choir have prepared a nice mixture of classic and modern sacred music for the pleasure of all, and in a fabulous setting. The Eglise Notre Dame de Royan, built after the WW2 bombardments of the city of Royan and inaugurated in 1958, is considered a chef d'œuvre of modern architecture, inspired by the esthetics of huge gothic cathedrals.

If you have friends who live up that way, please send them an invitation! Carpooling will be arranged.

Tour de France in Eymet: July 12th - water of life

We are now in a race to get the Temple ready for the Tour de France Wednesday 12th July 2017. What do we hope to do? Offering water to people who need a drink, prayer for those who need prayer and a listening ear to those trying to reconnect or discover God for the very first time. We are preparing a new exhibition on the water of life and we will have prayer areas dedicated to encouraging that connection. The Mairie will mark the Temple as a place for people to meet or to find someone who is lost. This is a big commitment for our congregation but we recognise the importance of being a beacon of light and living water when Eymet is a guest to what could be 15,000 visitors on the Tour de France trail.

Easter is about bringing new life and the hope of the resurrection.  For the Temple in Eymet we have an opportunity to bring new life to many people and enable them to discover the life giving water of Jesus.

Provence Praise 2017: July 1st-8th and 8th-15th

provence praiseProvence Praise is a week (2 sessions planned for 2017!) of fellowship, food, and fun in France, planned by a team from English speaking churches from across France led by Bob Hurley (Chaplain at St Marc’s Grenoble), who is working together with a small group of Chaplains to make this fantastic opportunity together. 

The vision is to gather English speaking Christians of all ages, based in France for a week of spiritual refreshment, rest and fun; out of this to build effective networks and relationships that continue to encourage people throughout the year. To be an encouragement and an oasis for church leaders in France.

The objectives are: to offer sound and inspiring biblical teaching; to lead lively, Spirit infused worship; to create a useful space for church/ministry leaders to network and build relationships; to provide opportunities for prayer ministry; to offer training in relevant subjects/topics... Save the date, and watch this space about updates for the 2017 programmes...

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.
