Reality of Abortion Finally Revealed in Norwich
On Friday 18 June, for the first time ever, the reality of “abortion” was publicly unveiled in the city centre of Norwich, as Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform UK (CBRUK) took to the streets with their brand-new Norfolk team.
More than 3 babies are killed every day in Norwich.
With volunteers from New Hope Christian Centre, St Albans (STN), and Stowmarket Baptist Church, the public education team gave those who happened to be in Norwich Market between 12 noon and 2pm the opportunity to see for themselves the wonder of life in the womb and the truth behind “abortion”, so often hidden by euphemisms.
Teams of intercessors at New Hope and Stowmarket Baptist upheld those on the ground throughout the display, and the effects of their prayers were certainly felt.
- Approximately 3,000 people passed by over the 2 hours and saw the reality of life in the womb and the violence of “abortion”.
- Many thoughtful conversations were had and minds changed at least to some degree.
- We were able to share the gospel with a number of people and even pray for one or two there and then on the streets, with others taking home a copy of John’s Gospel to read.
- Hundreds of others were visibly moved and challenged by the powerful visual display.
Here’s what some of the team had to say after the display:
"It was a real buzz to be on the front line and feel the sense of the Lord's presence in the face of opposition. Like I'd just stepped into the first chapters of the book of Acts! Knowing that people were praying for us while we were in the city centre was great."
“It was clear to see how much this education is needed.”
“I was nervous before going on the streets, having never been part of a public education display before. Nevertheless, the Holy Spirit gave us amazing boldness to speak on behalf of the vulnerable, and during the two hours I had a great sense of peace as we spoke out. I was amazed at how easy it was to go from discussing abortion to the gospel, asking who gives life value? Rather selfishly perhaps, being obedient to God in this way (Proverbs 31:8) greatly increased my own faith and desire to talk with more people regarding abortion and faith.”
We are already looking forward to going out again in July, and plan to exhibit monthly.
