INVERCLYDE Christian Initiative has posted an online film to make up for not being able to hold its annual civic prayer event in person.
The session would normally have taken place earlier this year in Greenock Town Hall but was not possible because of pandemic restrictions at the time.
Instead a short film was produced with the help of local video production company Tall Tale Films.
Alistair McAlees of the initiative said: “It is always much better to be able to meet in person for this annual event and to pray together.
“However, the video alternative not only shows off some lovely parts of Inverclyde but will enable wider coverage of the event through social and other media and enable more prayer for our community.”
The film is available to view on YouTube.
In it, prayers are offered for Inverclyde and for various elements which make up its community, including the council and its staff, health and emergency services, industry and commerce.
“Like many other areas, Inverclyde has been hit hard by covid-19,” said Alistair, “and we are praying for growth and revitalisation and well as better health for our residents.”
Inverclyde Christian Initiative is a non-denominational local charity which is also responsible for the operation of Street and Rail Pastors in Inverclyde and for a number of other initiatives including the Inverclyde Intercessors prayer group which meets monthly to pray for the area.
