  • Eternal Wall prayer drive


    Inspired by Nehemiah’s rebuilding of Jerusalem’s wall, ‘Eternal Wall: 52 Days of Prayer, Fasting and Worship’ is underway.

    It began on 3 September in support of a crowdfunding campaign for the Eternal Wall of Answered Prayer, a Christian landmark planned for the West Midlands, UK in 2023. It is to include 75,000 ‘heritage bricks’ celebrating answered prayer as far back as 600 AD. The 52 days of prayer is a flexible prayer schedule that can be followed daily – either individually or in a small group, or in a church or organisation. For more information visit eternalwall.org

  • God Squad

    British Comedy Guide

    A new BBC Radio 4 comedy pilot will follow the trials and tribulations of four new Christian students at university.

    God Squad will feature a Christian Union and has been co-written and created by atheist-turned-Christian Jack Chisnall (see photo). He told the British Comedy Guide that the show explores the ‘reasonableness of belief in the 21st century’. He said his hope is that people ‘see it as a fair “stating of the case” as regards the Christian religion; its vices and virtues’. Chisnall added: ‘I have an evangelical grandmother who does a good job of making the questions of Christianity unignorable.’ The show is to be recorded on 3 October at RADA studios.
