Corporate prayer is vital to the life of every church and so we have a regular prayer meeting once a month in Derby. The dates for these are published on the calendar page and they are also listed on our events page. LifeGroups do not generally meet on a prayer meeting week.
We’re looking forward to hosting our prayer meetings in-person this year. Come and join us as we worship, pray and seek God. We’ll spend some time worshipping together and .
We want to invite you to join us as we gather in January 2022 for a week of prayer and fasting. We feel that God is speaking to us about preparing for Him to move powerfully amongst us, so let's meet to pray and respond to what God is saying to us. We will be praying for God to build His church, for us to see people saved and added - in both Derby & Burton. We will also be praying for the neighbourhoods around us, for our nation and the nations. Come expectant that as we call on God, He will speak to us and equip us for His mission through His church.
We've tried to provide a variety of opportunities for us to gather together to pray. Some of our meetings will be on Zoom and others will be in-person. For details of timings please see the pdf below. Please contact the church office or your LifeGroup leader for the Zoom log in details. You can download a copy of the running order here.
To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing" - Martin Luther
As a church we recently completed our '40 Days of Prayer'. We looked at the subject of prayer both in our Sunday gatherings and in our small groups. To find out more click here.

The power of prayer has never been tried to its full capacity.
Nothing tends more to cement the hearts of Christians than praying together. Never do they love one another so well as when they witness the outpouring of each other’s hearts in prayer.
Prayer is stressed over and over again in the New Testament as a vital pre-requisite for the release and experience of God’s power.
Prayer lays hold of God’s plan & links his will & its accomplishment on earth.
You can do more than pray after you have prayed; but not until you have prayed.
Prayer can never be in excess.
Prayer does not fit us for the greater work; prayer is the greater work.
Learning to pray doesn’t offer us a less busy life; it offers us a less busy heart.
