Korean UK Prayer Mission SPECIAL Celebration
THY KINGDOM COME
Each year for the past 6 years teams of Korean pilgrims have been coming to the UK on a pilgrimage of prayer. This year there will be 250 pilgrims arriving in the last week of June specifically to pray for revival within the UK church and the areas that are hosting them.
This SPECIAL evening of international celebration and prayer was initiated on Ascension Day 2017 to mark the beginning of 9 days of prayer hand-in-hand with the Archbishop of Canterbury’s call for a global wave of prayer.
In the days after Pentecost we will see the first team of Korean pilgrim’s of prayer arriving in the UK and we will have the joy of welcoming 12 Koreans to Bournemouth. They will be staying at The Life Centre, the home of Bournemouth Community Church.
There will actually be 5 teams staying for a week along the South Coast with churches hosting teams in Portsmouth, Eastleigh, Ringwood, Bournemouth and Hardley on the Southampton Waterside. The reason they come is because they see the UK church as their mother church and God has called them to stand with us in prayer! <read more… a tie that binds>
Special Celebration Event:
On Thursday 29th June one of the New Forest teams who are staying in Ringwood will be joining with the Bournemouth team for a special evening of praise and worship at the Wessex Filling Station Korean Prayer Mission SPECIAL. The Ringwood and Bournemouth teams will comprise of around 26 pilgrims whose passion for prayer for the UK is a mark of their deep dedication to this country who sent the first missionaries to Korea in the 1800’s. From the martyrdom of those missionaries whose story is fascinating and illuminating, the Christian church in Korea grew. Today the Presbyterian church from which the pilgrims come numbers over 10,000 strong. <read more… a tie that binds>
Calling all churches Intercessors and Prayer Teams:
The Life Centre in Winton is a 1000 seater complex and we hope that representatives from all churches, intercessory groups and prayer teams will come together on this evening to join with us as we celebrate our unity in Christ through international praise and worship, and call upon God for the spiritual revival of our land. During the evening we will also hear from Pastor Adam Skirton from Ringwood who will share how the Korean’s prayers, and HOPE 2014 have played a vital role in uniting the churches and impacting the community with a new spirit of unity and positiveness.
Namjin Kim returns:
Hosts for the evening are Wessex Filling Stations Brian Edgeley and Namjin Kim: Director Prayer Mission Europe. Namjin seeks to match prospective Korean pilgrims of prayer with churches across the country. He will be returning to Bournemouth – after being our keynote speaker in February 207 – for this special event to share and interpret for others during this celebration.
We look forward to a fantastic evening of praise, worship and prayerful intersession with input from the two host churches, the Korean teams themselves and the Wessex Filling Station worship team.
