Guest speaker, Dave Richards, joins us this morning as we continue our 'Following the way' series.
Dave is a spiritual father in God in our international family of churches - Salt & Light Ministries - and exercises his apostolic and prophetic giftings whenever he speaks to us. We're excited to hear what God has to say through him!.
OCC, together with our Salt & Light Advance family of churches, are attending Wildfires and Big Church Day Out (BCDO) 2022. Larger 'festival' events are really good for us as individual Christians, as a local church and as a wider family of churches.
We will camp together for each event, and are exploring whether it is viable to have an ‘Advance marquee’ as a community hub/village hall. Some people may want to do both, or one or the other. The choice is yours! If you book for Wildfires, BCDO is free – two festivals for the price of one!
DON’T book directly on the Wildfires or BCDO websites, rather please use special booking links (below), which will enable us to camp as a group.
Wildfires is a three day festival at the Wiston Estate, West Sussex, UK. It was launched in 2018 as a joint adventure between 24-7 Prayer, Worship Central, Bible Society, Pioneer, Fusion, Big Church Day Out and Tearfund. "Thousands of all ages gather from different church expressions and communities, hungry to see revival in our time; gathering around Camp Fires that deepen friendships and community; pursuing together Holy Fire through worship, prayer and teaching; and encountering the Wild Fire of the Holy Spirit to take back to our homes, communities and our nations."
Big Church Day Out: Join with over 30,000 people from across the UK and beyond to worship together. Artists include Matt Redman / Casting Crowns / Jonathan & Melissa Helser / Lecrae / Travis Greene / Guvna B / Elle Limebear / Pat Barrett / Rend Collective / Lin D / Martin Smith / Joshua Luke Smith / Lion of Judah / Dante Bowe / Riley Clemmons / Galactus Jack / Dj Shunz
This Sunday we are not having a service at The King's Centre.
Instead, we are encouraging you to join in with local celebrations in your community and to be a source of light and hope where you are.
People are invited to share friendship, food and fun with neighbours as part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations. A Big Jubilee Lunch can be big or small - street party or picnic, tea and cake or a garden barbeque. The Big Lunch provides tips and ideas for hosting an event. Over 1400 people have registered to host Big Jubilee Lunches so far, with events being planned across the length and breadth of the country.
