Alex Dunstan: September 2019
On Sunday 1st September, Haltwhistle Methodists stated their intention of sharing Jesus with others, and held a 'Get out of Church' Sunday. One group went to the local hospital and sang hymns and said prayers for the patients there; one group went Prayer Walking around the town, praying in strategic places, and chatting to people as they walked; a third group remained in the church hall, making invitations for the upcoming Harvest Festival so that these can be given out to folk so that they receive a personal invitation.
Ken, the Community Worker coordinated the whole morning and it was 'topped and tailed' with informal worship and prayer.
We look forward to doing it again.
