HOPE Prayer Spaces

First published 7th May 2020

Prayer spaces in public places: HOPE Spaces

41% of practising Christians say that a spiritual experience or an experience of the love of Jesus was a key influence in their coming to faith – so if we help more people to experience God’s love and presence, more of them will come to know him for themselves.

In 2020, 24-7 Prayer and HOPE Together are inviting churches to host a creative, public prayer space.
Through this communities can be invited to experience God through talking and listening to Him in prayer.

Together with 24-7 Prayer, HOPE have developed a 'Hope Spaces' guide and resources to give you everything you need to provide Hope Spaces in your community.

You might set up a 'prayer sofa' on the high street in April and give out hot cross buns, or a gazebo prayer tent in the local market in May, or prayer stall at the community fun day in June. There are lots of options and this is a great opportunity to take the church outside the walls of the building and invite people to #TryPraying

"2020 is such an exciting year of opportunity. But if we are going to see anything, the need for the church to pray is critical. Prayer 2020 is one such exciting initiative that everyone can get involved in, which is on the 20th day of each month at 20:20 we will pray for 20 minutes for friends, family and the nation as a whole to come to faith in Jesus Christ. I have been thrilled with the take up right across the church in people doing it. So please both together an individually, join in with us this year!" Roy Crowne
