Nightfever in UrmstonThursday 19th July 2018
The Hope for the Future Team at the Parish of English Martyrs and the Holy Rosary Urmston launched ‘Nightfever’ in their church on the evening of the 15th June.
‘Nightfever’ is a very gentle way of Evangelisation. The concept is very simple, the church remains open from around 7pm – 10pm, bathed in just candlelight. On the altar is the exposed Blessed Sacrament with opportunity for confession. Live music is softly played in the background. The atmosphere is one of beauty and of peace.
Trained volunteers from the parish invited people to come into the church and light a candle. At the front of church was a basket with paper and pens so that anyone who wanted to could write down the name or a cause to be included as a special intention. A number of regular parishioners volunteered to pray in the church for the street mission taking place outside.
Over 30 new people were brought into the presence of Jesus that evening. It was a very uplifting experience.
