Resurgence and House of Prayer Edmonton (HoPE) present…
The EDMONTON BURN 2016 is 50 hours of continual, corporate worship of Jesus Christ. The vision and heart of the EDMONTON BURN is expressed by the apostle Paul when he prayed:
“May God give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” – Romans 15:5-6
The EDMONTON BURN is a Christian, cross-denominational event, made up of a diverse expression of believers from throughout the capital region and is being led by various local worship and prayer teams. It is being co-hosted by House of Prayer Edmonton (HoPE) and Resurgence Initiatives.
Various local worship teams will lead 2-hour sets throughout the event. The 50 hrs will consist of extended times of worship as well different expressions of prayer at various points. People are invited to come and go at any time and stay for as long as they wish.
WHEN is it happening?
The EDMONTON BURN begins Thursday, October 20, 2016 at 7:00 pm and will continue for 50 straight hours until Saturday, October 22, 2016 at 9:00 pm (approximately!).
WHERE will it be?
The location will be at Central Baptist Church @ 9419-95 Street in Edmonton.
WHY is it happening?
The primary reason is simply because Jesus is worthy of unceasing worship!
God is moving in this generation to establish a global worship and prayer movement. Literally in nations all around the world God is awakening different expressions of continual, day and night worship and prayer that seek to glorify God on earth as He is worshiped in heaven. Jesus told us to pray for the kingdom of God to be “on earth as it is in heaven” (Matt. 6:10), and in heaven there is an unceasing expression of worship and adoration of God (Rev. 5:8).
This is the FOURTH 50 hour BURN that has been hosted in the capital region. Last year, we had over 21 Worship leaders from churches all over the Capital Region. It is such “stake-in-the-ground” type moment for our region. We believe that again it will have a significant impact on the spiritual atmosphere as we come together in unity to exalt and worship Jesus as both Lord and Christ!
WHO is invited?
As a powerful expression of unity within the Body of Christ, we are inviting believers from all across the capital region to this special, multi-denominational event.
We need your help in letting people know about it, if you want posters or postcards for your church…we would love to get those into your hands.
We also want to invite everybody to the final 2 hours of the BURN, from 7:00 – 9:00 pm, Saturday October 22!
Please note: We regret that because of limited resources, we are NOT able to provide childcare or childcare facilities.
WHAT does it cost?
There is no charge to participate in the BURN, however there will be a FREE-WILL OFFERING taken in the evenings in order to offset the costs of the event.
Pastors, Leaders…we need your help! We need your help inviting your entire congregation to be part of these 50 Hours. Would you promote it on Sundays, in your announcements? We have posters, postcards and would love to come and make an announcement on a Sunday at your church! We are calling together churches from across the Capital Region of every denomination! Join us!!
