The URC has signed up to HOPE, and is represented in the initiative by Rev Andrew Willett.
HOPE's Friday Focus 2017 calls churches to unite across our nations, praying together on Fridays (whenever possible) supporting ongoing mission across the UK and preparing the way for HOPE 2018.
Each week Friday Focus will take a different theme: supporting national initiatives of prayer and mission; key seasons in the church’s calendar; the different people groups highlighted in the Talking Jesus report (www.talkingjesus.org); the people we know and meet; the communities we are part of, and the places where we live.
Leaders from denominations, mission and prayer organisations and networks are writing the reflections based on a Bible passage, and there is also be a written prayer to accompany each theme. Use Prayer Focus for private prayer or in church services and prayer meetings.
