Churches Together in England have now produced a candle poster which is now available at www.cte.org.uk/prayersofhope and we would be most grateful if you would publicise this as widely as possible and as soon as possible.
The poster comes in many forms and includes one that can be coloured in. Churches Together in England have released the following statement
As our nation faces the unprecedented challenge of the coronavirus pandemic, Churches Together in England (CTE) is encouraging Christians across our nations to continue uniting in prayer, praying #PrayersOfHope in their homes at 7.00 pm each Sunday evening.
Following the overwhelming response which the National Call to Prayer and Action received on Mothering Sunday, CTE has prepared a candle poster for those who would like to place a permanent symbol in their front windows of Christ’s light shining in the darkness.
This poster has been made available due to our awareness of the potential fire risk posed by lighting live candles, particularly on windowsills. We are keen to avoid adding any pressure to our emergency service personnel, particularly at this difficult time.
‘The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.’ John 1:5Please join us prayer at this challenging time.
