Andy Drozdziak invites you to an hour of praise.
You are invited to another hour of praise on Wednesday 29 April from 7-8pm. Alice Hall from the Sion Community will lead this on the CCR England Facebook page for this hour. The link is We are blessed with some wonderful praise and worship leaders in CCR, many of whom are generously serving us each Wednesday. Many thanks to them all for this service. At this time, we believe praise is enabling many to encounter the Lord’s power, love and freedom. Last week’s praise was wonderfully led by Ruth White from the Metanoia Project.
Below are some prophecies which have come in recently. We believe the Lord is calling us to not be afraid, as He is the Lord of life, and that the Holy Spirit is bringing freedom and fresh anointing at this time.
- "I have an image of us all being drenched by God’s living water, as powerful as standing under a waterfall and he is washing away our fears and doubts and sickness. He wants to anoint us in this special time of coming away from it all and being with Him."
- El Chuwl - The God who gave you birth. “But now, this is what the Lord says - he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are mine.” (Isaiah 43:1)
- Isaiah 43:19: “I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry land.”
We believe we are being called deeper into praise, deeper into God’s love and a recognition that, without Him, we can do nothing (cf. John 15:5). We are called to remain in this love, especially in this Easter season, when we recall that Jesus has defeated death, disease and darkness, transforming them into light, hope and life. Praise the risen King!
As last week, you can praise however best suits you: in your homes with others if you are able, on Zoom or WhatsApp with your prayer group, or on your own. We may be singing different songs or proclaiming different Scriptures, but we will be united spiritually through the act of praise. For those who wish to be led, Let’s again stand united in praise for this one hour. We then invite you at 8pm to have a time of silence and listening to the Lord. If, after this time of listening, you have a prophetic word to share, we invite you to do so via email: Let’s also take time to praise each day because this is our gift to the Church and the world at this difficult time.
Maria Heath recommends two videos
As we begin to look towards Pentecost, we wanted to share this video as a possible resource you may be interested in. It has been created by Gary Stephens, Chairman of the New Dawn in the Church. In this 28 minute video, Gary shares about Baptism in the Holy Spirit, including his own testimony, and then leads the viewer into a time of prayer for Baptism in the Spirit. You will find other helpful teachings on this youtube channel too. video on this youtube channel that we wanted to highlight is Daniella Stephen’s teaching ‘Is it time to get our house in order?’ It is a reflection on the current issues we are facing:
Tim Stevens wants to remind us that CAFÉ has recently launched CaFE@HOME for parishes and groups to spiritually nourish people in the midst of this terrible virus crisis and which is proving very helpful around the country.

Gerard Pomfret reminds us that Gooodnews Books are still sending out books, and publishing. Why not have a look at Charles Whitehead’s autobiography on the CCR website then order it – or any other book - from the Goodnews website or by phone 01582 571011 anytime.
Celebrate at Home
Finally, may I remind you about, and encourage you to look at, the new Celebrate@home resource pack for families on the Celebrate website -
It is really accessible and can be sent to parishes as well as those in Renewal. Please spread the word.
Thank you for all you are doing. May God continue to bless you.
