Pentecost conference goes online for all who thirst

The Sion Catholic Community for Evangelism in Brentwood is helping to organise an online ecumenical retreat, which is taking place over the Pentecost weekend.

The theme of the gathering is “Come All Who Thirst”. It was due to take place in Coventry, but has been moved online because of the restrictions caused by the pandemic.

It will now run as a Zoom webinar from Friday May 29 to Sunday May 31. The event is free, but contributions via crowd funding are welcomed to cover the cost.

The event will include times of prayer, including adoration, the rosary and Mass. Speakers will include the Jesuit Biblical scholar Fr Nicholas King, Brendan Thompson from Catholic Voices and Natalie Orefice, who is an evangelisation officer of the Archdiocese of Birmingham. As this is an ecumenical event, there will also be Anglican and Baptist speakers.

Friday evening will be designed for welcoming the Holy Spirit, with worship led by Prayer Storm, a testimony and a talk, followed by prophetic prayer ministry led by Clare Bell. Saturday evening will focus on healing, with a talk followed by prayer ministry.

For safeguarding reasons, participants will not be able to activate their microphones or cameras as in a normal Zoom meeting, but will be able to communicate via a Question-and-Answer function, which just the host and panellists will see.
