Praying for the transformation of Ipswich

By the presence and power of God!

Ipswich 24/7 Prayer Room - a place to intercede for this town

 —  —  —  —  —  —  —  —  —  —  —  —  —  —  —  —  —  —  —  —  —  —  — 

There is a 24/7 town wide Prayer Room which has been running since 14th February. It will run until at least the end of 2024. This is a place for Christians in Ipswich to intercede for this town, read prophecies that have been given over many years and record encouragements from God as we pray.
This document gives key background to the setting up of this room.
Please signup for a slot(s) here !

On 17th May it was wonderful to have a good number celebrating the first three months of the prayer room and hearing of the impact it had had on some of those who had spent time in it.

Crown Him with Many Crowns 2024 - this annual celebration of what God has done and seeking Him for new initiatives saw over 200 people gather from across the church community in the area. For those who were not able to be there please follow this link to a recording. A prayer leaflet was given out and this can be downloaded here.
Note that there will be a follow up “Crown Him, Ipswich!” prayer time on 18th July - please see the Events page for more information.

At Crown Him the following powerful declaration was spoken over Ipswich and is continuing to be used:

Lord God, we thank You and praise You for all that You have done in, for, and through this town over the years. We thank You for stirring our hearts to look to You again and again.

We pray Your blessing and leading for Your church in this town in 2024 and we thank You for what You are going to do.

We continue to pray Your Kingdom come in these days, in increasing measure.

We commit to contend in prayer for this generation - and the next - that Your Name, the precious Name of Jesus, would be lifted high and many, many more would come to know You as their Lord and Saviour. Amen

Ipswich In Prayer leads the “Prayer sphere” within Together for Ipswich praying for the cross-church work which is going on around Ipswich. One example is the annual “Crown Him with Many Crowns” event in January.

Doubling the number of children and young active disciples!

The Church of England has a vision to pray in a doubling the number of children and young active disciples by 2030. It’s about young lives being won and shaped by the goodness, beauty and truth of Jesus. It is about asking God for his enabling and empowering, his leading and guiding, his work to open hearts and draw young people to himself.

The prayer meeting will be every Tuesday on Zoom for 20 mins from 13:00-13:20. The link you’ll need for the Zoom ( is the same every week.

The prayer meeting will be reasonably fast-paced, and start and end bang on time. Some of the time will be spent in breakout rooms, but, all the way through, prayers can be offered verbally, in the chat, or silently.
