8.6.12 - 'A New Thing' on 14 July 2012
‘A New Thing’ on Saturday 14th July 2012. 11am-12pm: Singing on every street, 2pm-4pm: ‘Flashmob’ at Trafalgar Square.
“See I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:19
On the day of Pentecost, God did a new thing. A sight was seen, a sound was heard, and Jerusalem was never the same.
Thousands turned to Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit had come… We have a dream to see the same thing today in London.
‘A New Thing’ is a vision to see the Church unveiled to London through worship and prayer. For Christians of every creed to unite, to be Church but Church without walls. We are ‘7:14’ and ‘Joy to the Streets’. We’re not big. We’re not strong. We don’t have power, name or influence. Indeed the acronym of this event is ‘ANT’, which tells you all about us! But we know our God, and believe He’s with us, calling us to rise…so on July 14th, we’re taking to the streets and inviting the Church to join us!
From 11am – 12pm, we’re inviting the churches of London to come out of their buildings and sing. With one voice we’ll claim every street for Jesus and cast a net of song across the city. And as we do, we’ll see the joy of the Lord poured out on a hurting nation.
Then from 2pm – 4pm, we’ll come together in London’s heart, Trafalgar Square. We’ll gather as one, ‘an army of ants’, for a ‘flashmob’ of worship and prayer. No stage, no microphones, no brands, no speaker. Just the people of God in one place, at one time, with one voice seeking Him for the nation.
We’ll pray and we’ll praise, we’ll stand and we’ll kneel, we’ll shout, we’ll be silent, we’ll have a good time! But whatever we do, we’ll be seen and be heard and like Pentecost, impact our city. God is calling His church to the streets at this time, all across the world. This is our chance to respond to that call and rise up for the glory of Jesus! Join in and spread the word… we have friends partnering with this vision, who will spread the word from above, but ultimately it belongs to us all and will spring up from the ground.
