Light a 'Candle of Hope' every Sunday at 7pm. Reflect and pray with people from across the world.
‘The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.' John 1:5
People from across our Diocese displayed a 'candle of hope' in their windows last Sunday evening, uniting in prayer with many thousands of others around the world. As our nation faces the unprecedented challenge of the coronavirus pandemic, Churches Together in England (CTE) is encouraging Christians across our nations to continue uniting in this way, praying #PrayersOfHope in their homes at 7.00 pm each Sunday evening.
Following the overwhelming response which the National Call to Prayer and Action received on Mothering Sunday, CTE has prepared a candle poster for those who would like to place a permanent symbol in their front windows of Christ’s light shining in the darkness. This poster has been made available due to our awareness of the potential fire risk posed by lighting live candles, particularly on windowsills. We are keen to avoid adding any pressure to our emergency service personnel, particularly at this difficult time.
