CHRISTIANS of all ages and denominations will flock to Langtree Park on October 12 for the Saints in the Stadium event which is part of the National Day of Prayer.
They are expected to arrive from all parts of the north west, Yorkshire, Cumbria and Staffordshire for a day of worship and prayer at the home of the Saints.
The continuous five-hour programme will begin at 11am and feature a whole range of singing styles, hymns, modern songs, prayers led from the stage, said aloud together by the audience and on the big screen or said quietly by individuals or groups.
Pastor Philip Fell, co-chairman of Saints in the Stadium who is based at the Christian Life Centre in Atherton Street, St Helens, said: “St Helens is one of the foremost Christian towns in the UK. It is in the top 10 per cent of towns where people claim to be Christians according to the 2011 census.
“Working in partnership with the National Day of Prayer, the north is inviting the nation to St. Helens to stand together and call on God to heal us, forgive us and transform this nation again.”
Worship leaders who will be participating include Ian Yates of Elim Sound, Lara Martin from Northampton, Godfrey Birtill, and Noel Robinson from Ilford, Essex who works with Stephen Derbyshire who was Pastor at the Elim Church, St Helens.
Other notables attending include the Bishop of Lancaster, Jonathan Oloyede, Compassion UK and Ian Cole of the World Prayer Centre.The event has been endorsed by the Archbishop of York and the Archbishop of Canterbury and will feature worshippers from Free, Anglican and Roman Catholic churches.
Monthly prayer meetings have been held at Langtree Park in the run up to the big event on October 12.
