GREENBELT  FESTIVAL 22ND - 25TH AUGUST 2014

Greenbelt is an arts, faith and justice festival which is taking place this bank holiday weekend in the grounds of Boughton House, Kettering. This festival provides a wonderful opportunity to think deeply about issues of faith and justice, to be provoked and challenged by a variety of excellent speakers, enjoy great music and meet other Christians with a passion for Justice and Peace. For a full festival line-up visit www.greenbelt.org.uk.

 

THE DIOCESAN SERVICE TEAM: Recognise the need to focus on God and his power through praise, worship and intercession. With this in mind we intend to lead evenings of praise and worship in different parts of the Diocese. We will do this through attending an already existing prayer group and invite prayer groups and individuals that are near that place to join us. The evening will include praise, worship, teaching, intercession and prayer ministry. The next meeting will be on Monday September 8th, 8 pm at Sacred Heart Parish, Weston Favell, Northampton, NN3 8DP. If you or your group are located within a reasonable distance drive of Northampton, please come and join us as we discern together what the Holy Spirit is asking of us today.
