Kingdom Come 2012 year of prayer: ‘Alpha and 24-7 Prayer are uniting to resource and champion Kingdom Come 2012, a year of continuous prayer for the British Isles. We want to humble ourselves, unite and seek the face of God that he might heal our land. There is a growing urgency; the London riots shook us to the core, the economy is in crisis and the typical, tried and tested solutions are coming up short. Secondly, there is an increased sense of expectation that God is preparing His body for a fresh touch from heaven to equip us and, finally, there is a humble realisation that none of us can do it on our own; we need God and we need each other. We are expectant and excited!’ www.alpha.org/kingdomcome; www.24-7prayer.co.uk/kingdomcome.

Could you offer accommodation in your home for an athlete’s family member to stay during the Games in 2012? More than Gold’s Athlete Family Homestay team are looking for volunteers who will provide free accommodation for the family members of 2012 Games competitors. This is in response to the high cost of hotel accommodation this summer when prices are expected to at least double. Without this opportunity, many family members of athletes would otherwise be unable to attend and give their support. Accommodation is needed in the areas near or around London and in Benfleet, Birmingham, Broxbourne, Cardiff, Dorney Lake, Glasgow, Manchester, Newcastle, Weymouth and Portland Harbour. All registrations will be on line, and all hosts interviewed. More details under Athlete Family Homestay: www.morethangold.org.uk.
