Monday 2nd July, 7.30 at Wythenshawe Community Church
The Freedom Session is an evening of worship and prayer to equip and encourage those fighting for social justice issues in the city of Manchester. Training the Church to strategically pray and intercede for justice and freedom is a core part of our mission as a House of Prayer.
We believe that God has given us the authority and invitation to partner with him in praying for His will to be done and his Kingdom to come. We can wholeheartedly declare the truths and promises he has provided in and through the word, over every situation and cry out with hunger and expectation for His Justice and His intervention. As a group of burning hearts for justice and freedom, we can corporately join with one voice and accord, in spirit and in truth and start to see a spiritual and physical change.
We are excited to be collaborating with Barnabus for the upcoming Freedom Sessions in July. We have invited Neil Cornthwaite, who works as the Head of Operations at Barnabus, to speak to us before we partner together in prayer. Neil is passionate about seeing people set free into their true identity as sons and daughters of God to live from a place of freedom and to be all that God has made them to be. He wants to see our friends off the streets empowered into a lifestyle that will see them leave homelessness and rough sleeping behind them forever.
We love Neil's heart and as a House of Prayer, we are so excited to partner in prayer and worship, with Barnabus' vision of hope for this city.
Whilst some of this may be new to you, we hope that this evening will serve as a re-awakening and encouragement to see fellow brothers and sisters coming together for one thing. We hope that for all, it will serve as a commissioning of faith for day and night prayer throughout the week and hopefully, the rest of your lives.
