Preparations for the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham – and beyond – have been going on for several years already….
Prayer-walking Birmingham’s postcodes
After a break over the school summer holidays, Andy Mackie has re-started his series of prayer walks through Birmingham’s postcode areas. This week sees Andy covering the B20, B21, B24 and B25 areas.
At 9.00am each weekday, Andy is praying outside a designated church building in a postcode area. Between 9.15am and 10.00 he prayer-walks the local area. On each occasion, Andy is joined by local leaders and supporters. A full list of postcodes and locations can be found at THIS LINK. In light of the new restrictions on public gatherings, please do not arrive unannounced at the named venues, to enable the group of intercessors to remain small.
In conjunction with the series of walks, Andy has written a poem, entitled, ‘Prayer Walking Birmingham’s A to Z.’
