A small group from Church were lucky to visit the Beacon House of Prayer and Christian Centre, located in Sandyford, just outside Stoke-on-Trent, on Tuesday 22nd July 2014.
We spent time in private prayer in the variety of prayer spaces available in the House and explored some of the many resources they have on offer. We then attended their daily act of worship joining in song and prayer and listening to readings from scripture. Finally, we joined in fellowship and discussion over our packed lunches.
What an uplifting and exciting spiritual experience we had and a deeply moving one to see such commitment from this group of Christians. Thanks to Andrea Ellams for arranging our visit.
The House of Prayer was established in 2007 and has continued to grow since. But what is a House of Prayer? The leaders of the House, William and Karen Porter, sum it up like this: ‘The word ‘Beacon’ sums up a lot of the vision—may it be a light of God’s presence, a fire of night & day prayer and a signal of burning hot Christian spirituality as people live out Jesus’ love.’
For more information about the House or if you wish to visit, the details are below.
