Proclamation

Proclamation Group Saint John

Mission
To gather a group cross-denominationally from the body of Christ in the Greater Saint John Region to discern scriptures to be proclaimed publicly and prayed in unity over the city.

Current Scripture Focus
Reading the Epistles of Paul and identifying passages to pray and read over the Saint John Region.

Background
The Greater Saint John Ministerial chose to commemorate the 150th Anniversary of Canadian Churches by joining together as one church to read the whole scripture over the 10-day period leading up to Pentecost. Participants from thirty-three local congregations took part in this endeavour which was hosted by Full Gospel Church. This was a blessing for many involved and it was discerned to continue with some readings in public spaces.

In September and October a small group including Catholic, Anglican, Baptist, Wesleyan and Pentecostal participants read the Gospel of John in King’s Square. The format included praying for the city out of what had just been read between every chapter. As the winter doesn’t lend itself to outdoor proclamation the group met through the winter to agree on the scriptures to read in the spring and to grow in relationship.

Thy Kingdom Come

25th May – 4 June

Between Ascension and Pentecost, Archbishop Justin Welby, leader of the Global Anglican Communion has put out a call for the church worldwide, all denominations, to participate in 10 days of prayer in unity. The desire is for a move of the Holy Spirit leading to friends, family and neighbours coming to know the Jesus. We want to make this invitation know across our region for people to join in as they feel drawn to. If you are intending to participate please register with the site. It would be great if you could let us know to.
