Olympic Prayer Guide

The old record shop next to Argos has been confirmed as the location for
Run the Race café in Coalville. With the generous allocation of outdoor space this venue will be a community hub throughout the Olympic Games.

In the heart of the town centre there will be fun, games, chat and lots and lots of cake. Big screens in the café will be streaming live BBC coverage. The Olympic buzz will flow out into the Coalville Precinct with a fortnight’s program of sporting opportunities and displays.

Heartland Youth for Christ (Britain) invites you to join in prayer over the Olympics and their ministry during the Olympics:
