ADORE RETREAT – Alton Days of Renewal 2018 Programme – Good news for Everyone

Jul 28 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Adore Alton Days of Renewal

Programme for 2018 Theme: Good news for Everyone

Renewal and Mission

The Church exists to evangelise. “The presentation of the Gospel message is not an optional contribution for the Church.” –

Pope Paul VI Evangelii Nuntiandi 5.

Luke 4:18-19 Set Prisoners Free

Key Scripture: Luke 4:18-19 “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.”


“Although every Christian is called to evangelism, none of us is equal to the task. We all need the Holy Spirit. That’s why the Charismatic Renewal has an essential contribution to make in the whole area of evangelization….we should understand that nothing is impossible when people are willing to submit their lives to the Holy Spirit’s transforming power… He will equip us to play our part…. We are to be joyful witnesses to what God has done for us, and to what we know He longs to do for every human being….We must go out in the power of the Holy Spirit and talk about the Jesus we know and love.”

Charles Whitehead in Pentecost is always for living.

Overview: Our 2018 programme will seek to inspire and equip us in the essential area of mission and evangelization, with speakers looking at both the theory and practice of bringing the good news to the world, especially the needy.

Please put the dates in your diary and please keep our 2018 programme in your prayers.
