Under the banner of ‘A place of peace on earth at Christmas’ seven Lisburn churches have come together to offer prayer space in the city centre.
Thanks to a generous offer of premises, the prayer space has been created for the duration of the Christmas shopping period at 41 Market Square, Lisburn.
This is an initiative in partnership with some of the city centre churches and will operate from Friday December 4 until Christmas Eve. The prayer space will be open from 10am to 5pm Monday to Saturday, with late nights on Thursday December 10 and 17.
The concept is twofold – firstly to create and oasis of tranquillity during the hectic season and secondly to help people remember that the birth of Jesus is the real reason for the season.
Members of the seven participating churches will oversee the space and trained and sensitive people will be available to pray with anyone who asks. ‘A place of peace on earth at Christmas’ will be launched on Friday December 4 at 10am with a short Act of Worship.
