Our theme for 2018 was "GOOD NEWS FOR EVERYONE" - Renewal and Mission.
Although every Christian is called to evangelise, none of us is equal to the task. We all need the Holy Spirit - He will equip us to play our part. The programme was designed to inspire and equip us to be joyful and effective witnesses, bringing the Good News to the world.
On this page we are giving links to resources which will enable you and your Parish to develop your own evangelising skills and programmes.

The Lord is calling us to PREPARE. A prophecy given at ADoRE in November 2018 indicates that the Lord is preparing his people - the new wine of his Spirit - to bring many souls to him. But He is calling us to PREPARE:
P = Pray, pray as if your life depended on it
R = Repent and Reconciliation
E = Enter
P = (His) Presence
A = Adore & Worship
R = Reach out
E = Evangelise
