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.
Our morning prayer gathering called AMP grew out of our week of prayer and fasting and has carried on as we have hungered for more of God together. This group meets on Zoom on Wednesday mornings at 6.30am.

We’re looking forward to once again hosting our worship & prayer evenings in-person this year. Come and join us as we worship, pray and seek God. Usually we'll start with a time of worship and go on to pray about various aspects of church life.

To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing" - Martin Luther
We are excited to be gathering in early 2024 for a week of prayer and fasting. It has become our pattern over the years to have a week of focussed prayer at the beginning of each year. We want to see God moving amongst us in a more powerful way and so do join us as we gather to pray. We'll 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're planning 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. More details about timings will be available soon...
It has become our pattern to gather the whole church for a Week of Prayer and Fasting at the beginning of each new year. As in previous years we gathered in various places across the city in the evening, as well as at various times online. To help guide people's prayer we put together a list of prayer ideas, many of them flow directly from prophetic words which God has given us as a local church!
We prayed for all sorts of things during the week, for God to build His church, that we would see people saved and added to us. We also prayed for our neighbourhoods, our nation and the nations.
We will keep our ideas for prayer document available throughout this year so that you can join us in prayer. To download a copy click here. If you are considering fasting and would like some advice please click here.
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.
