What a terrific time we had together yesterday for our two Church Unite gatherings at the Melbourne Convention Centre. Over 7,000 people from over 130 churches attended, with no agenda other than to spend time in prayer and worship. We laid aside our denominational and church names to focus on no other name than that of JESUS.
A special thanks to the organisers and our volunteer teams who worked so hard to bring all this together. We couldn't have done it without you. Thank you everyone for their financial contribution also, including our partners, LIGHT FM and Concilia, and other churches who contributed so generously. Donations can still be made on the Church Unite web site.
Church Unite exists to gather Christians and churches in unity for prayer and worship. We'll do this for 3 years, then evaluate where to from there. Dates for Church Unite 2015 will be released soon.
Until then, may we continue to pray for churches across our city, regardless of shape or size, liturgical style, ecclesiastical structure, eschatalogical leanings, or racial and generational makeup, to experience a renewing and reviving of the Spirit so we can be a bright light for Jesus in every suburb and neighborhood across the city and in every sector of society, whether it be business, government, arts and entertainment, sport or education.
May Melbourne be known as the place where the name of Jesus is held in high esteem. Together, let's make His name famous!
