A Day of Prayer for the UK

Newfrontiers Leaders’ Prayer Day, Westminster Chapel, 5th July 2017

I was in my early 20's when I first attended a Newfrontiers prayer event – around 125 leaders met at King’s Park Conference Centre in Northampton to pray for this nation and the nations beyond. It was a memorable time of worship, prophecy and prayer.

At that time I was new to this family of churches, but I soon learnt that prayer was foundational to this group of believers, modelled and encouraged by our leader Terry Virgo. Over these last 30 years or so, I have been in numerous such meetings: large gatherings of leaders praying at the annual Brighton Leadership Conference; days of prayer and fasting, in increasingly large halls and auditoriums, at Stoneleigh, Derby and then Peterborough; and in smaller contexts, in Terry’s front room; or weekly Thursday mornings spent seeking God with local London leaders. All were times of encounter, refreshment and intercession.

The last six years have seen a season of multiplication and expansion through the ministry of Terry's ‘spiritual sons’. While these new movements continue to flourish, we believe God has spoken to us about gathering again to pray for the UK, under the banner of Newfrontiers.

So on Wednesday 5th July, let's come together at Westminster Chapel, in the heart of our capital city, to pray and seek God for our nation. This is a day for all leaders – elders, pastors, staff and spouses, of any Newfrontiers related church in the UK. Tickets cost just £5 and you can book in today via Many thanks to Commission for allowing us to use their venue and for organising the booking!

We have not held an event like this for six years and we are very excited at the prospect of gathering to pray again. This new era has many strengths, but I have missed coming together to pray with friends and partners in the Gospel from across the nation. While affirming and rejoicing in our new era, we still believe 'we can do more together than apart'.

Newfrontiers is a group of apostolic leaders partnering together on global mission, joined by common values and beliefs, shared mission and genuine relationships.
