Ipswich in Prayer seeks to build prayer network

"Praying for the transformation of the town by the presence and power of God".


The vision for Ipswich in Prayer, since its beginning in 2000 has been;

  • To raise the profile and commitment to prayer
  • To unite the Church in Ipswich in prayer
  • To see God transform the town through prayer

Across Ipswich there are many individuals, small groups and churches praying. Our aim is to serve the praying community in Ipswich, recognising our common purpose as together we pray, “Your Kingdom come, your will be done”.

We now have contact with over 20 churches across Ipswich and the surrounding area. Our hope is to link with as many churches as possible to build this network of prayer.

What we do


  • Connecting locally, regionally, nationally and globally
  • Seeking, discerning and sharing God’s word for the town at this time


  • Calling God’s people to prayer at strategic times
  • Praying across denominations, generations and nations


  • Facilitating, teaching and training
  • Encouraging a culture of love, respect and blessing
