Upper Room Intercessors 13th-20th May 2018

Upper Room Intercessors 13th-20th May 2018

Upper Room Intercessors is a seven-day 24/7 residential prayer initiative running from Sunday 13th May to Sunday 20th May 2018 (Pentecost), at Cornerstone Church. It is our response to Thy Kingdom Come this year.

It serves as a gathering of, and a clarion call to, all who have a heart and a passion for intercessory prayer. Though repentance, intercession, and heartfelt prayer the expressed aim of Upper Room Intercessors is to see a foundation laid across the UK for the coming weight of God's glory.

The week will start and end with worship services on the 13th & 20th May and will include prayer walks around the borough on 14th & 15th May, a Holy Spirit Night hosted by Army Rising on Friday 18th May and the East London Burn on 19th May. The remainder of the week will be spent in prayer in an environment of worship as God leads. Other ministries both in London and around the UK are supporting the initiative in prayer. We also welcome prophetic artists, dancers, and those involved in other worship, warfare and intercessory ministries. Attendees are welcome to the entire event (with the option to sleep in the church), or to come and go as they please.

This is a ticketed event although tickets are free. They can be purchased here.

Watoto Children's Choir Concert - 'Signs & Wonders' - March 22nd & 23rd 2018

Watoto Children's Choir Concert - 'Signs & Wonders' - March 22nd & 23rd 2018

The Watoto Children's Choir are back with the second year of their incredible production: 'Signs & Wonders'

Watoto Children’s Choirs have travelled extensively since 1994, sharing a message of hope for Africa’s orphans and widows. To date, the choir has toured six continents and performed to enthralled audiences in schools, retirement homes, churches, parliaments, state houses and royal palaces. 

The Watoto Children's Choir concert is a fundraising event for Watoto. The choir's members are orphans and other vulnerable children; many of them have suffered the loss of one or both parents and now live in a Watoto village.

Accompanied by a team of adults, the choir presents Watoto’s vision and mission by sharing personal stories, music and dance. While on the road, the children act as advocates for the millions of other African children who have experienced the same heartbreaking pain and suffering as them.

Through the power of their testimonies the children will share stories of how their lives have been changed, and how they have been called into a life of purpose to transform their communities. Each story will declare the miracle of transformation – from darkness to light; from despair to hope; from loss to purpose; from fear to faith.

Hosted by Leyton Churches Together, both concerts will be held at Elim Pentecostal Church on Hainault Road, Leytonstone, E11.

Service of Thanksgiving for Howard (From Cheryl)

Service of Thanksgiving for Howard (From Cheryl)

Dear friends,

It is wonderful how many of you are able to join us as we celebrate Howards's life on Monday. 
I just wanted to let you know a few details about the day

Firstly the time has changed! Thankfully the Funeral Directors have given us an extra 15 minutes for the service so the timings are now as follows

1.00 - Doors open
1.30 - Service starts
3.00 - A small party of close family will depart to the crematorium
3.00 - Refreshments will be served for those staying at the church
There will be a video booth where you can record your memories of Howard
There will also be a book of condolences for those who prefer pen and paper
3.30 - Hot food will be served
4.00 - Family party will return
4.30-6.30 - Open Mic where friends and family can share memories of Howard
7pm - Finish

The Celebration will be held at: Elim Pentecostal Church, Hainault Road, Leytonstone, E11 1EL

Dress code - Whenever I asked Howard what I should wear to an event he would say "Whatever you are comfy in" so that is the dress code for his Celebration. If you want to wear bright colours feel free to do so, if you prefer to wear black please do. Formal or casual it is entirely up to you.

Travelling by Public Transport
The church is 5-7 minutes walk from Leytonstone Underground Station.
There are also several buses that stop outside the church: 
W15 & W19 that run from both Leytonstone and Walthamstow Central Stations
W16 that runs from both Leytonstone and Wood Street stations

Parking - We are expecting over 350 people so parking will be in short supply.
The streets around the church are mainly CPZ but the police have lifted parking restrictions on the following roads Fairlop Road and Hainault Road.
We also have parking vouchers for the Abbots Park/Midland Road area (AM) which is about 5 mins walk from the station (these will be available from Cheryl prior to Monday or on the day from the reception desk at Elim Church.

Flowers - we will just be having flowers from the immediate family. However we will be having a collection on the day that will be shared between four charities that Howard regularly supported.

Cakes - Many of you have asked if you can bring anything. We have caterers who will be providing a range of hot food but if you are a baker and would like to bake a cake that would be great. 

Viewing - Should you wish to see Howard you can contact the Funeral home to arrange a visit on Friday 19th January. 

Finally we are expecting a lot of people so to be sure of a seat I would recommend that you arrive as early as possible.

I look forward to seeing you all on Monday,

Cheryl x

Thy Kingdom Come 2017

Thy Kingdom Come 2017

From Thursday 25th May (Ascension day) until Sunday 4th June (Pentecost) we will be joining with the global wave of prayer, Thy Kingdom Come, an initiative of the Archbishops of Canterbury and York. The aim is to pray that people in our City, Country, and around the world, will come to know Jesus as their saviour.

During this time we will be joining forces with both Gateway Community Church and Elim Pentecostal Church (Leyton Churches Together) and holding joint events, individual events, and a combined 24/7 prayer rota from Sunday 28th May until Sunday 4th June (sign up here) with the aim of ensuring every single hour is covered in prayer by someone from our three churches. We are also hoping to open our prayer room from 9am-4pm during the week. 

The week of prayer will begin on Sunday 28th May with a 'Leyton Churches Together Thy Kingdom Come Prayer Launch' at Elim church at 6.30pm. It will end one week later with a 'Leyton Churches Together Thy Kingdom Come Celebration,' again at Elim, at 6.30pm.

See some of the videos below to get inspiration.

Citizens UK Listening Training

Citizens UK Listening Training

As a Parish, we’re excited to be offering free training with Citizens UK on Wednesday, 3rd May, from 7-9.15 pm at St Mary’s RC Primary School in Chingford. 

At the Listening Training, we’ll learn more about key aspects of Community Organising, including how to have short and effective relational meetings (one-to-one conversations), how to host house meetings and more. As part of strengthening our alliance in Waltham Forest, we’re hoping to have hundreds of conversations with our neighbours in 2017 about what matters most to them and what they are concerned about; from these conversations, we will then build a manifesto to present to politicians before the 2018 local elections. Do join us on 3rd May – we’d love to have you!
