Ipswich in Prayer has recently launched a new website! 

Ipswich in Prayer banner

Many individuals, groups and churches have been praying collectively under the Ipswich in Prayer (IIP) banner since October 2000. We have seen many prayers answered and great encouragements,
as well as challenges.
Some may remember the early days of our corporate story; others will have arrived in Ipswich more recently.

Our first event, an Evening of Prayer, was held in December 2000. We have gathered together many times since, as well as connecting by email, prayer walking, holding prayer schools and weekends of

We have taken a full part in national weeks of prayer and the Global Day of Prayer, as well as connecting with other prayer networks across England.

Recently we have felt it right to 'reboot' Ipswich in Prayer, and the launching of our new website is a beginning. We hope everyone will feel that they belong, as we pray together for our town, and wait expectantly before God. Please keep in touch, and send us any words, pictures, prayer requests, events and feedback. Please also visit the website regularly so we can pray corporately, even when
not physically gathered in one place. We will do our best to keep it regularly updated, and we value your input to help us to do this.

We will use the blog to share reflections and thoughts from our prayer meetings and from the messages you share with us. Look for us also on Facebook and on Twitter @ipswichinprayer.

Thank you so much for praying with us for our town. We believe in a great and a good God who loves and longs to bless Ipswich. "Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that
we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need".
