Join us for a quiet vigil with the Flame of Hope - drop in any time between 7pm and 9pm.
- to be quiet or light candles
- to bring your concerns to God about what is happening in the world and in this country post-Referendum and Chilcot Report etc.,
- to pray with and for Hope for friendship and good connections between peoples and communities across S. Yorkshire.
The Flame of Hope (a Miner's lamp) was lit at the Your Kingdom Come prayer event outside Sheffield Cathedral on 6th August and since then has been taken on a prayer walk around Wisewood outer estate, a family fun day at Winn Gardens inner city estate, a city-wide youth event quiet space in Sheffield; and due in Warmsworth, nr Doncaster, Parson Cross and will be at Whirlow Spirituality Centre on 31st August, before being passed onto other locations in South Yorkshire.
It is so right that the Chapel of the Holy Spirit hosts this Prayer Vigil. The Chapel has been a place of reflective and contemplative prayer for well over 50 years, and its role in prayerfully supporting South Yorkshire and surrounding communities continues in many different ways.
The Tour is organised by a S Yorkshire Quiet Prayer Group and supported by the Church Army, and CTSY. The Flame comes with a set of resources and a display.
