Chippenham Deanery and Through Faith Missions have teamed up to organise two weeks of outreach in the rural areas of the deanery. In 2013 they will return to lead a mission in the towns of Corsham and Chippenham.
The theme of Flame of Hope echoes the Olympic theme and the mission team will be carrying the flame of faith from village to village. In the lead up to the mission special candles are being lit each Sunday in all the churches and special prayers are being offered. Preparatory work will be carried out by advance teams in many of the villages.

FLAME OF HOPE PRAYER
We thank you for Flame of Hope.
We pray that we may see signs of new life
In our churches and communities.
Give us a sure faith in Christ,
And the willingness to step out in his name.
There are still opportunities available to become part of the mission team.
For fuller details visit the Through Faith Missions website.“Churches in Chippenham Deanery launched the Flame of Hope mission in a public way on Advent Sunday. Last year “Advent Angels” went from their own churches to others in the deanery with testimony and greeting. This Advent they repeated this but also lit a Flame of Hope candle in the receiving church – something that will be lit each week to remind local Christians of the countdown to the mission in May. Some even have plans to take their candle to community events as a witness there.” From TFM website
