About us

Call to Prayer exists to enable, encourage and facilitate prayer.

The Call to Prayer team was commissioned at the instigation of Transforming Norwich on 2 April 2008. Jane Holloway, National Prayer Director from the World Prayer Centre in Birmingham was guest speaker at the service, when she said that this was the first time in her experience that a prayer movement had received official recognition by the local body of Christ in this way.

This marked a definite change of gear, and since then the team has continued to grow as different initiatives have taken off.

In April 2009 we were awarded charitable status (Charity No 1127275). In January 2011 we took on the lease of St Edmund's Church, Fishergate, from Norwich Historic Churches Trust. We are now a 'Light House' - a place of prayer for Norwich and Norfolk.

We work closely with Transforming Norwich and have links with a number of other prayer ministries both locally and nationally, as well as with the House of Prayer and Retreat Centre at Ffald-y-Brenin in Pembrokeshire and with Bethel Sozo UK.
