Kingdom Come is our quarterly prayer gathering at HTBB Church. Each time we include a creative and active element within the service.
For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ.
This Kingdom Come was on Easter Sunday and the question for the evening was: 'What difference does the resurrection make to the way we pray?" Looking at 2 Corinthians 1:20-22 we focused on the promises of God and the need to take hold of them in prayer on behalf of others.
Give your best prayers away.
As a physical symbol of what we were encouraging people to do in prayer we fired large confetti strips each with a promise of God printed on them out of three makeshift cannons above the gathering. People had to catch the promises whilst they were in the air, a sign of what we do in prayer with God's promises. We then encouraged people to take these strips home and stick them up and use to pray in the week following.
We borrowed a floor dryer from the gym next door which blew air into three pipes attached with paper and gaffer tape. We cut slot holes in the base of each pipe through which to push the large confetti strips.
For the confetti we printed this template out on A4 and cut them up, we kept them in ordered bundles of around 10-20 to slot in in one go.
And here was our setup in the balcony:
