One Bright Week

One Bright Day 2014 was the foundation stone for One Bright Week 2015 – just to remind you of what happened in June last year – One Bright Week is a different initiative and it will stretch from Friday 12 June – Friday 19 June 2015; there is a specialist team going into schools across Telford & Wrekin, enthusing & commissioning our young people. YWAM are praying on our streets with our youth and also going into schools, alongside our 72 Disciples. There will also be community events: cafe, visiting elderly people in community, litter picking, community painting, planting seeds/flowers in cemetary and many other projects.  We need more volunteers to make this event a real blessing to our town – “Come Holy Spirit enthuse your people and fill them with love for this town”. If you want to volunteer please email: Call Rita Wilkinson 01952 878592.

Last year the true worth of One Bright Day was that 32 different churches, across Telford & Wrekin, worked together to bring about a blessing to Telford. 

The week will be totally community orientated, church going out to community.   Details of the event so Far:
