Christian Police branch to relaunch in Norfolk

CPALogoHatBy Keith Morris

2009: A Christian Police Association branch is being relaunched in Norfolk thanks to the help of Network Norfolk, prayer support from churches across the county and two faithful Police officers.
The branch will be relaunched at the Norfolk Police HQ in Wymondham on November 23.
Branch Leader, Sergeant Rachel Thrussell, said: “When I attended the CPA Leaders’ conference in October 2008, the Lord spoke very clearly to me saying that I was to write to all the churches in Norfolk to get them praying for CPA in Norfolk. This followed approximately eight years of regular praying by myself and another Sergeant. The Lord said that we had prayed faithfully from within for a long time and now what was needed was the prayers to be coming in from the outside.
“With the help of Network Norfolk and others, I was able to get a letter out to Christian groups across the county. I have since had a large number of Norfolk churches praying for us in CPA and been able to put churches in contact with their local Safer Neighbourhood Teams. We have seen our membership start to grow and heard of a number of officers who have come to faith.
“I can only describe this as something like the walls of Jericho and it seems that the prayers from the churches was the final ‘shout’ that was required to bring down the barriers. We are looking forward to an exciting future.”

We now have two regular prayer groups in Norwich and Wymondham and a quarterly social evening with a speaker, designed to help us all get to know each other better. We meet in different parts of the county so all can be involved and have something to invite others to who may be interested in what we believe.

“We welcome any who would wish to join us in prayer and fellowship and we ask prayer for guidance as we seek to promote the Lord’s work through CPA here in Norfolk."
