Transformation expert Petrie in Norwich visit

An exciting opportunity exists for the church in Norwich and Norfolk to work together towards seeing the cultural transformation of our city and county through the visit of globally reknowned preacher, teacher and writer, Rev Dr Alistair Petrie in May. Biddy Collyer reports.


Dr Petrie has been involved in the transformation of cities worldwide for many years.  He is currently working with churches in Australia, USA and in the UK.   
He teaches on the principles and relevance of the Gospel in the 21st Century, and combines prayer, and research in order to prepare communities, cities, nations and the marketplace for lasting revival, authentic transformation and the release of Kingdom culture"
Members of Transforming Norwich have been in contact with Dr Petrie for two years to plan his visit and they are excited that he is committed to returning annually to Norwich for a further two years.   He feels that God has called him here at this time and is flying over specially from Canada for this visit.
The programme of events includes Dr Petrie speaking at the monthly Revive meeting on  May 18 at the City Gates Centre, Colegate.  On Wednesday May 22 at 7.30pm he will be at The Beacon, St Elizabeth’s Earlham.  There will also be a Training Day for Cultural Transformation on Thursday May 21, 10-4pm at the House of Prayer as well as opportunities to get involved with prayer walking across Norwich on Friday May 22.  
medium1As well as these engagements, Dr Petrie will be preaching at two Norwich churches, New Hope Christian Centre on Sunday May 17 at 10.15am, and St Stephen’s, Norwich on Sunday May 24, at 11.30am.  The culmination of his visit is on Pentecost Sunday at the Global Day of Prayer in the Anglican Cathedral on Sunday May 24 at 6.30pm.
Transforming Norwich believes that this is another part of the jigsaw of pieces that God is bringing together as we continue to pray for our city.  Come and hear how together we can transform Norwich and Norfolk, bringing hope instead of despair into our communities.
