We are joining with our wider movement and family of Churches, the Australian Christian Churches for a 21 Day National Prayer and Fasting Initiative.
Over the 21 days, we will focus on Local, National and Personal matters. It also includes our support for the National Day of Prayer & Fasting on 10th February 2018.
We encourage all individuals, families and lifecoms to participate over this 21 day period. There is a prayer journey in terms of focus we will be taking as listed below.
There are alot of Christian myths around Fasting including the 'Daniel Fast' and 'Fasting' things other than food / drink. What is fasting? What do the scriptures teach? Click the link below to see a blog post by Divergent Leader - Josh
