1,000 NDOP Wembley tickets available for the homeless
Organisers of the National Day of Prayer at Wembley are making 1,000 of free places available to the homeless, poor and marginalised.
As Christians across the nation prepare to attend the historic worship gathering at Wembley Stadium on 29 September, organisers are encouraging churches to use the event to reach out to those in their communities.
Already more than 30,000 tickets have been booked for the worship event, which will feature artists including Noel Robinson, Graham Kendrick, Matt Redman, Tim Hughes, Guvna B and the Redeemed Christian Church of God Mass Choir.
NDOP Wembley organisers say the event will be a historic opportunity for the church in the British Isles from every denomination, stream and tradition to unite at Wembley Stadium to pray for the nation.
Jonathan Oloyede, who runs NDOP, said following a prayer meeting last week that the team were given a word from Luke 14:15-24. He said: "The Lord was calling out to all His people, especially those on the margins and outside the warm huddle of church life to come to worship with their family.
"'Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled'."
He told the Alliance: "GDOP would like to see everyone irrespective of their culture, class or creed united for the Kingdom. One of our friends has made this possible through their generous donation. We are therefore calling out to agencies working with the homeless and marginalised to bring them to Wembley.
"At the moment, we are liaising with the Trussell Trust Food Bank network, Teen Challenge and others to ensure every one of the 1,000 tickets gets distributed."
