Hundreds in Norwich join global prayer meeting
2010: Hundreds of Christians from dozens of Norfolk
churches gathered at Norwich Cathedral
on May 23
to join millions of others right across the world in the Global Day of Prayer
Pentecost Sunday saw events held across the globe in over 220 countries ranging from football stadiums and cathedrals to the open air or people’s homes.
In Norwich, the event was hosted by Pastor Trevor Pimlott
from Norwich Family Life Church
and the Very Rev Graham Smith, Dean of Norwich Cathedral
Leaders from churches and Christians organisations from across Norfolk led worship and prayers for the new government, the poor and vulnerable and community service agencies.
While the main service was going on, children of participants were enjoying interactive prayers at the close-by Open Youth Venue involving footballs, climbing walls and Fairtrade chocolate. They returned to the Cathedral to lead the last section of prayers.
