The Gathering

For years we have seen a growing momentum as God calls His church to seek his face in prayer and worship. We are called to be a presence people.

So this year we are bringing the prayer and worship streams together, as 24-7 Prayer and Worship Central partner to host a major conference in Birmingham, the UK's second largest city. 

Join us in 2017 for The Gathering
