EXILED ZIMBABWEAN CRICKETER INVITES NORTHERN IRELAND CHURCHES TO STAND AGAINST INJUSTICE

Exiled Zimbabwean cricketer Henry Olonga will invite Northern Ireland churches to join One Voice, a global movement of prayer and action led by Christian relief and development agency Tearfund.

Henry, who was exiled from Zimbabwe after wearing a black armband during a 2003 World Cup match, will be speaking and performing at Whiteabbey Presbyterian Church on Friday 25th February.

Pete Greig, of 24/7 Prayer, said: “Tearfund is brilliant and unusual in the way it marries practical action with prayerful reflection. I’m sure that the One Voice prayer week will change lives. We’re excited to be part of it.” One Voice is a global movement inviting hundreds of thousands Christians in a hundred nations to pray and respond to issues of global injustice.

The event runs for a week from Sunday 27 February and will create dedicated prayer spaces that will be open 24 hours a day. Tearfund resources, including an animated film for both children and adults, will help individuals and church groups to reflect on some of the biggest issues facing our world.

Tearfund Chief Executive Matthew Frost said: “At this time, Tearfund particularly seeks to pray for those still suffering in the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti one year ago and the thousands of refugees displaced by the post-electoral violence in the Ivory Coast. Our prayers are also needed for all those affected by political instability and unrest in North Africa and the Middle East.”
