Can you help us bring the Prayer Porch to life?

Posted on: May 26th, 2017

Excitement is building here at Newcastle Cathedral, as we prepare to host the “Thy Kingdom Come” Beacon Event on Saturday 3rd June. (If you don’t already know all about it, you can find out more here:

One of the most important parts of our preparation will be to encircle the event with prayer! In the three days leading up to and including the event – from 8am on Thursday 1st June to midnight on Saturday 3rd – we would like to have a 24 hour praying presence in the Cathedral. We are calling it a “Prayer Porch”!

Please come and help us to bring the Prayer Porch to life!
You can sign up here

The plan is to keep the North Porch of the Cathedral open constantly: to have 3 to 5 people, visibly praying there at all times, for the Holy Spirit to bring the people of our City and Region to come to know Christ. People passing by will be welcome to come and ask for prayer, or join us in prayer if they want to. There will be music, ideas and pointers for prayer available if you aren’t used to praying aloud – or you can just pray silently with us. If you’re feeling creative, we could even create some prayer stations out in Cathedral Square!

Might you be able to sign up for an hour or more to make this possible?

We have registered with a sign-up system through the national 24/7 Prayer Project. You will have access to the loos and facilities of the Cathedral throughout, and if you are coming by car, we can give you a permit to enable you to use the Cathedral car park.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
