Thy Kingdom Come - Weymouth & Portland
Join us for Thy Kingdom Come 2018, an ecumenical global wave of prayer encouraging Christians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost (10 May – 20 May) for more people to know Jesus Christ.
In Weymouth and Portland there will be two Beacon events. These are major celebration gatherings, open to all Christians, to join together to worship, hear stories of faith and pray. There are two prayers that we are focusing on:
to pray the prayer of Pentecost ‘Come Holy Spirit', and
pray that others will come to know Jesus Christ.
Beacon Service Tuesday 15 May at St John's Church, Greenhill 7.30pm start. Prayer stations will be open from 5.00pm and refreshments served from 7.00pm.
Beacon Service Sunday 20 May at All Saints, Portland. 11.00am start. A celebration service for Pentecost followed by a Bring and Share Lunch.
In between these celebrations, you can set up a prayer event in your home, church, pub, on the beach, a residential home or school. If you want ideas for prayer you can find them on the website: www.thykingdomcome.global
This ministry will be available in Weymouth town centre from 10am-12noon on the following Saturdays: April 21st, May 5th, 19th .

A Night Shelter for Women
I wish to explore the potential of establishing a Night Shelter for women in Weymouth. I did a lot of research into it last year and I feel God is now saying it's time to step out in faith.
I am looking for people who have an interest in, a heart for, or experience of working with the homeless, to help, as I cannot possibly do this on my own. At present I am interested in people who could come on a steering committee, although I will obviously need volunteers for the project itself.
This group are in need of more volunteers to work with the young people at their Open Arms Centre at Easton, Portland, particularly on Saturday evenings from 6.30-8.30pm. Please speak to Donald or Jocelyn Crocker if you may be able to help.
Letter to Church Leaders
Dear Church Leader,
I am writing on behalf of the Refresh Trustees to bring you up to date on developments with the Refresh finances. This letter goes hand in hand with the letter Cherry Clarke has just sent out about the prayer and Vision Day in May. Read more.
