30 years of Kings, 30 days of prayer

1st — 30th September 2018

Kings was launched because faithful people prayed. We believe God has been speaking to us afresh about getting serious about prayer. This September we will celebrate thirty years of Kings with thirty days of prayer.

You can download our 30 day prayer guide, complete with all our key events for the month. This is also available to pick up from each of our venues on a Sunday morning.

You can also sign up for our 24-7 prayer rooms at the Kings Centre and Centro Lounge here.

Terry Virgo

Sunday 23rd September, 9 & 11am, Kings Centre

We're thrilled to have Terry Virgo with us at our Hampden Park venue.

Terry Virgo is the founder of Newfrontiers, a worldwide family of churches together on a mission to establish the kingdom of God by restoring the church, making disciples, training leaders and planting churches. Newfrontiers serves 1,500+ churches across 70 countries.

A well-known Bible teacher, Terry speaks at conferences internationally and hosted the Stoneleigh Bible week and annual Together on a Mission conference in the UK, which drew thousands of delegates from around the world. At the final Together on a Mission conference, in 2011, Newfrontiers was redefined as a network of apostolic spheres worldwide, and Terry passed the leadership on to fifteen apostolic leaders.

Terry has written several books, including The Spirit Filled Church, God’s Lavish Grace, God Knows You’re Human, The Tide is Turning and No Well-Worn Paths which is his biography.

Family Prayer Event

Saturday 29th September, 2pm & 3pm, Kings Centre

Our family prayer event will feature two prayer slots: pick either 2pm or 3pm. In both sessions we will start in Vivo with a brief time of family worship and an introduction. Then we'll wander as families upstairs through our prayer corridors and rooms which cover our 30/30 prayer subjects of Mission, Presence, Justice and Joy (at kids level).

Take as much time or little time as you like... (the 2pm slot is not restricted to one hour, but the 3pm isn't).

Finally we'll head back downstairs to the Sussex for drinks and cookies. Event finishes at 4.30pm.

If you would like to donate any school uniform (as part of a prayer) or food for foodbank as a family—please bring it with you on the day—as we will be taking collections of these things in our justice / mission section.

Tope Koleoso

Sunday 30th September, Hampden Park & Centro Venues: 9, 10 & 11am

It's fantastic to have Tope with us again, and he'll be with us at both our Hampden Park and Centro venues on Sunday 30th September.

Pastor Tope Koleoso has been the lead Pastor for Jubilee Church London since 2005, having joined a church planting team in 1995 that planted Jubilee in North London. Tope cares deeply for God’s church and is passionate about equipping other pastors for the furtherance of God’s Kingdom.

30-30 Big Finale

Sunday 30th September, 8pm to midnight, Kings Centre

Come and join us for the big finale of our 30 days of prayer! We'll be having a four hour celebration as we tie up 30 days of non-stop prayer. Come for all or part of the evening.

The Alpha Course

Our next Alpha Course starts Thursday 4th October 2018

The Alpha course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith. It’s relaxed, low key, friendly and fun.

Our Alpha course is a series of nine evenings. At the beginning of each evening a free meal is served, giving you a chance to get to know others, relax and enjoy yourself.

Then there’s a talk, addressing key issues like ‘Who is Jesus?’ ‘What happens when we die?’ and ‘What about suffering?’

And then there’s an opportunity to discuss what you’ve heard, share your views, and ask anything you like. Alpha is a place where no question is too simple or too hostile.

If you want to join the thousands of other people who have been on Alpha, visit our Alpha web page to find out more and sign up.
