In October 2014 we held our first annual conference and the team who planned it had been brought together especially for this purpose. We are a small group of six people from across the county who share a passion for prayer and the belief that God has more in store for Cumbria. Some of us had never even met before but the oneness of spirit and purpose has forged a strong team of people from different contexts to form a partnership that will become a catalyst for change in Cumbria. We are not a closed team and we are always on the lookout for other like-minded partners to add their faith, skills and experience to the mix.
The conference came out of a partnership that was forged between Church Plus and the UK Prayer Movement. The vision of UKPM is to see an annual prayer conference in every county across the UK. Part of the vision of Church Plus is to see the Body of Christ unite in faith-filled, expectant and creative prayer – especially in our own county of Cumbria – so it was in this shared vision that we came together to make it happen.
Since then, and very quickly after the first conference, the vision to see the county connected in and through prayer has seen the introduction of ‘the tour’ which seeks to build and strengthen relationships of those faithful in prayer.
We will continue to seek and initiate opportunities to pray, connect and encourage wherever and however we can. If you want to be involved either as a team participator or an area connector then please do get in touch with us.
