Churches in 40 days and nights of prayer
Eighteen churches in Lisburn have launched 40 days and 40 nights of prayer for their city.
The Relentless Prayer initiative, covering the Lent period and launched at Trinity Methodist Church, invites anyone to call into a participating church.
Rev Simon Genoe, the vicar at Lisburn Cathedral, said: "This is the most significant gathering of local churches for many years. We are hoping people will visit. Everyone is welcome to pray."
He added each church would have a prayer room, and 'prayer champions' would help to co-ordinate the slots in each church to make sure every minute of the 40 days and nights is covered.
The churches taking part are First Lisburn; Railway Street; Harmony Hill; Legacurry; Hillhall and Hillsborough Presbyterian Churches; Lisburn Cathedral; Christ Church; St Paul's and Derryvolgie Parish Churches; Seymour Street and Trinity Methodist Churches; St Patrick's and St Colman's Roman Catholic Churches; Lisburn Christian Fellowship; Lisburn City Church; Mount Zion Community Church, and Lagan Valley Vineyard.
