WEST HAM PRAYER: Saturday 5th March

The next prayer meeting at West Ham against the proposed 'megamosque' - and for our nation is Saturday 2nd April.  Start 10.30am finish time is 12.30pm latest
The planning appeal by Tablighi Jamaat to continue using land at West Ham as a mosque has ended. The appeal was brought against an enforcement notice served on the group by the London Borough of Newham, requiring them to stop using the site for public worship.
The appeal, held at Newham Town Hall, finished on Tuesday 1st March with summing up from the barristers for Newham Council, Tablighi Jamaat and the Objectors.
The Planning Inspector will now go back to Bristol and consider the case. The verdict is expected in mid-May.

Christian Voice members met at West Ham for a prayer meeting against the proposed 'megamosque' and for our nation on Saturday 5th March.  The next meetings are on 2nd April 2011, 7th May 2011.
We have been meeting for prayer on the Greenway overlooking the site on the first Saturday of every month without fail since January 2007.  Numbers have rarely fallen below ten, and there has been constant prayer for confusion in the mosque camp.  I believe the Lord has honoured our prayer with powerful answers, as Tablighi Jamaat have failed to meet deadlines, sacked and replaced architects and PR people and held a disastrous open day.
'The intended "megamosque" cannot now be built in time for the Olympic games, so that is a triumph in itself.  We would have taken that when we started in 2007, but now we are encouraged to press on and press in.  The March prayer meeting was crucial, and those in April and May will be even more important as we pray for the Planning Inspector utterly to reject the Tablighi Jamaat proposals, that their appeal fail and that they cease the unlawful use of the site, between West Ham Station and Channel Sea House, as a place of worship.'

Future dates: 2nd April 2011, 7th May 2011.  Meet at the site where the Greenway pedestrian path crosses Canning Road.  Aim for Channel Sea House, E15 3ND.  We start at 10.30am and finish at 12.30pm.
West Ham Station is on the Fenchurch Street line to Southend, and on the Hammersmith and City, District and Jubilee underground lines.  Check at Transport for London for 'planned engineering works' to the Tube.
From West Ham Station, turn right out of the station, turn right along Manor Road, under the railway bridge, under the Greenway bridge and if on foot turn left into Leywick Street, then left into Abbey Road then left into Canning Road, which is where we shall be, where the Greenway crosses Canning Road.  If coming by car, turn into Mitre Road which becomes Abbey Road, but you will need to park in Leywick Street or take a chance and park at Channel Sea House.

Do come and stand up for Christ whatever the weather and be challenged and blessed!  (Phil 1:27-29).  The meeting is always a great time of fellowship.  Future dates: 2nd April 2011, 7th May 2011. 

PRAY: That there is a good turn-out with powerful prayer for our nation at all events.  Pray that the Tablighi Jamaat appeal will fail.  We are under threat from both Secularism and Islam.  Who is on the Lord's side?

BEHOLD, the LORD's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear. (Isa 59:1)
