Author to speak at N Norfolk worship meeting
Local speaker and writer John Wright will be the guest speaker at the June Filling Station meeting in Swanton Novers at the end of June.
“Shout it from the Housetops: The Romance in sharing our faith more effectively” will be John’s theme as he encourages us to speak about our faith. He reminds us that we are each called to bear witness in our own way. He is well known and respected by many globally, not just here in Norfolk where he and his wife Sue live.
John Wright brings a richness from his life experience. Having been educated at Winchester and Christ Church, Oxford he received his business training at Harvard and PWC. As a bachelor of 32 with an E-Type Jaguar it seemed as if a brilliant career lay before him; but at this point he had a dramatic conversion experience which was the prelude to a period of tribulation balanced by many great blessings. Businesses collapsed, he went through the desert experience of two years unemployment, he had cancer twice and finally the undeserved humiliation of prison.
Throughout these trials and afflictions John’s sense of humour never left him. The joy of the Lord has been his strength. John founded the St Matthews Housing Association which provided housing for the homeless in over 80 houses in East Anglia. He is also a Lay Reader in the Church of England and a member of the College of Evangelists Emeritus instituted by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York.
A fascinating speaker and accomplished writer, John delivers the truth of the gospel with humour and encouragement. It promises to be a very enjoyable evening.
The Filling Station, which was born out of the Church of England in the West Country, has grown exponentially in terms of venues opening all over the United Kingdom and continues to serve and refresh both Church leaders, congregations and more importantly to open the eyes of those who are seeking answers to the meaning of life through the Christian faith. The Filling Station is helping to bring unity amongst believers from across the whole Church spectrum.
The event is on Monday June 27, and will be the last meeting before the summer break. The evening will start at 7pm with coffee, cakes and chat. The meeting will start at 7.30pm with fellowship, wonderful worship followed by the main talk. There will also be a time for prayer ministry at the end of the evening.
The venue is Swanton Novers Village Hall, St. Giles Road, Swanton Novers, Melton Constable NR24 2RB.
