It has just been confirmed that we are not being invited to lead a Rock Eucharist event at Greenbelt 2009 in order to give the event a rest from the festival worship programme. This is not an entirely unexpected turn of events … in fact, when we led the first one in 2007, we were effectively told that we would probably be rested after two years and, following a couple of changes in worship personnel on the GB team, this is exactly what has transpired.
Hopefully, we will be invited back to lead some more of these events in future years.
All that said, in advance of the showcase event on 7 May, the diary for Autumn/Winter is already starting to take shape. In addition to an event for Churches Together in Driffield at the end of November, and a further one in Barrow Upon Humber, we have now been invited back to lead two further events at Hutton in October 2009 and February 2010.
Please pray for the churches where we have led events to date, and also for those inviting us in for the first, second or third time. Pray that they provide the members of those churches with a new and exciting worship experience and a new way of looking at the most wonderful of all the Christian church’s set services, Holy Communion.
