Over 70 christian leaders from across the many spheres of the Liverpool City region met recently to begin a long term Movement Day process. Senior leaders from the Police including Chief Superintendent Ngaire Waine, the Council including Cllr Jane Corbett Deputy Mayor and Richard Kemp Leader of the Liberal Democrats. The meeting which also includes leaders in the Arts and Media, Law, Politics and the Church met for a Civic Prayer Breakfast to talk about ways of working together better for the sake of the Kingdom.
"We felt it right to bring together christians in the different sectors” says Tani Omedeyi a Church leader, “because we recognise that in order for things to change in our city the church needs to get involved.”
Nic Harding the leader of unity movement Together for the Harvest said “we wanted to start a conversation about the possibility of praying and working together to answer some of the needs of city.”
Counsellor Richard Kemp the leader of the Liberal Democrats in the city council said “I’m here because we need to do something fundamentally different …what excites me is that we can come together…to make really effective change.”
The event is part of a series of conversations across the region including St Helens, Wirral, Liverpool city centre and Halton which will culminate in a large regional Movement Day Gathering in the autumn 2020.
