'Come to the Light' update 2012


undefinedParishioners from across Wallasey gathered recently to hear the Bishop of Birkenhead explain the big push to make new disciples in the town next year. The meeting took place at Prezzo, a restaurant at the redeveloped New Brighton seafront. Bishop Keith is pictured outlining details of next Lent's mission project 'Come to The Light'.

The bishop explained how special greetings cards are being printed to be distributed at Christmas services. These cards will describe what will happen as ‘Come to the Light’ is rolled out.

The highlight of initiative will be FIVE talks next Lent to be given by Bishop Keith in The Light – New Brighton’s landmark cinema on the seafront.

Those talks will feature clips from popular screen dramas and examples of personal Christian witness from Wallasey people.

It’s expected the cinema talks will be attended by 1,000 people over the five nights.

Special prayers written by the people of Wallasey, together with photographs of the town, will be seen daily from next January onwards on the diocesan website.

The overarching aim of the project is to grow parishes in Wallasey.

Our Parish Development officer, the Revd Richard Burton, attended the Prezzo event. He said: “The ‘Come to the Light’ project is drawing all of the churches in Wallasey together in mission. There is a real sense of hope as we look to Lent next year.”
