PRAYER AND PRAISE FOR NORTHAMPTON
Prayer & Praise for Northampton was hosted by
Northampton Cathedral on 5th November.
No fireworks, just candles, praise & worship and lots to pray about, in Northampton.
PPN takes a break now, until next year.
“Unity is a journey, not a destination”
During the last few months,
Prayer and Praise for Northampton has been on a journey to Anglican, Baptist, Orthodox and Pentecostal churches in the town.
The music is usually led by singers and musicians from the host church. Recently we were inspired by the Romanian Orthodox Choir singing a beautiful hymn in their own language and the lively worship songs that followed were led by the Church of God of Prophecy.
We have prayed for various groups of churches working together in the town, for the work of organisations that help the homeless, for Northampton’s County Council and Borough Council, for the Christian Police Association and for Thy Kingdom Come.
The monthly Prayer and Praise for Northampton is an ideal opportunity to visit different churches, to sing and pray alongside other Christians and to pray about local issues.
“They are very special occasions, nothing in my previous experience has brought together Christians from so wide a spectrum of traditions.”
Revd Anne Davis, St Benedict’s Church

Is it time to move on now? Hopefully, yes.
We cannot change the past but we can change the future.
Pope Francis said that
“Unity is a journey, not a destination.”
So let’s move on by working together.
Allotments are a great example of how
churches in one area might see the need
to get on better with their
next door neighbours.
