Momentum builds for National Day of Prayer
Momentum is building for an event which will see 80,000 Christians worshipping together at one of the most iconic venues in the country.
National Day of Prayer will bring Christians together in unity of worship, prayer and mission when it takes place at Wembley Stadium on 29 September.
The day will be a chance for Christians in the UK to come together after the nation waves goodbye to the Olympic and Paralympic athletes who will be returning home after the Games.
It is aimed at bringing everyone together, regardless of age, denomination or cultural background in a spirit of unity.
The Alliance is encouraging all member churches and organisations to attend the event, which will also feature worship from leaders including Noel Robinson, Matt Redman and Tim Hughes.
More than 9,000 tickets have been sold since they went on sale a fortnight ago, but the team is hoping that Wembley will be filled with the sound of Christians praying and worshipping together come September.
Dean Seddon, part of the Connect House media team, who are handling all ticket enquiries, said: "The response has been really encouraging. This is a once in a generation event and to see Christians getting involved now at the very beginning of ticket sales rather than waiting until the last minute has been a huge blessing."
