About us


Call to Prayer is made up of a team of over twenty from different church backgrounds. Our main focus is to build an altar to the Lord of prayer and worship, desiring that “Surely God is in this place” – not just in the building but in us as living stones. We are Bible-believing Christians who long to promote the Kingdom of God through His Word by His Spirit, through our seeking Him and seeing His people released into who God made them to be, in their unique gifting and anointing.  Prayer, Teaching and Discipleship is very much at the heart of who we are, and our passion is to help others know God, by revelation in His word, and taking hold of the gifts of the Spirit. We value the body of Christ in all its diversity, and work closely with churches in the region and across the Nation, standing together for the purposes of God.

2019 – a new dawn…

Several months ago, we as a ministry felt we were being challenged by the Lord to ask the question, “Who am I?” – a question to ask on a corporate basis but also as individuals.

As we at Call2Prayer embarked upon this journey, we found we were trying to meet the expectations and perceptions of who others thought we should be.  We soon realised that we could just simply be “who God made us to be”.  During this process, we are discovering so much freedom!  What is becoming very clear to us is that we, along with lots of other Christians, have been locked into this mindset of “man’s expectation” and not finding the peace and fulfilment that God intends for us.

As a ministry, we have chosen to be ourselves and to let other things fall to the floor!  We have embraced the reason that Jesus has taken hold of us for – as Paul said in Philippians.

We continue to press into this truth and are now discovering who we are as a people and who God has made us to be in our own unique gifting and anointing.  It is such a breakthrough time for us, and we long to help others find their unique place in God’s amazing Kingdom and just breathe and accept who they are!

On behalf of the Call to Prayer Team


Call to Prayer has always been about unravelling the depths of God’s Word through teaching and 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.

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.  The Bishop of Norwich, Graham James, and the Lord Mayor both attended our opening. 

We are now ‘Light House’ – helping the body of Christ to encounter God and equipping the saints for works of service.
