Testimonials

It's marvellous! Two or three people, ten or twenty, it will be wonderful because God is going to be here amongst us.
Mark Macau, Oxford
It's a really good opportunity that we have as Christians to be together as one Church.
Veronica Rodriguez, Argentine student, Oxford
We've seen people coming along who maybe haven't been to church for a very long time, and have been able to reconnect with other Christians through the prayer breakfasts.
Dave Leal, Theology and Philosophy lecturer, Oxford University, Oxford
Definitely thinking of doing something ! Will be praying about it
Beth Knowles,
Today is the first Big Breakfast event. For me it's wonderful to be part of something that I know that God wants. To see Christians in all areas meet together and know who our neighbours are, and who our fellow Christians are.
Jason Luff, Student, Oxford
As a visiting student from America, I had a lot on my mind when I arrived in Oxford, like “Would I make friends?” During my first week, a time when I was feeling very much alone in a strange country, I saw a flyer for the Edgeway Rd. Prayer Breakfast. I started going to the meetings which led to me making some wonderful friendships. It was great being able to greet my neighbours when I saw them on the street.
Emma Hughes, American student, Oxford
I'm 83 now and getting around is more difficult. Meeting people on the street and singing praises together has been such a joy.
Phyllis Merriman, Pensioner, Oxford
I’m a great believer in streetprayer. It’s wonderful for Christians from different churches to get together unitedly in love for one another, get to know each other and then encourage each other to get to know their neighbours. Our communities aren’t as strong as they might be. And if we Christians start by getting to know each other and then reaching out in love to others, that could make a real difference to our city. So I really commend the work of the prayer breakfasts.
Vaughan Roberts, Rector, St Ebbe's Church, Oxford
I love this idea. We had our first prayer meeting last night - it was great!
Nina de Salis Young, , Woodhouse Eaves, Leicestershire
I did go ahead with a prayer breakfast. There were only two of us there, but it was a good time & well worth meeting and praying. Really enjoyed connecting with another Christian who lives across the road.
Suzanne C, Barton, Oxford
I am thankful to God for what you are doing. My prayer is that this ministry will grow throughout the UK and into Europe.
Dr Damon So, Research Tuto, Oxford Centre for Mission Studies
This is just to let you know that we have started a Soup & Prayer meeting monthly on our road, on the last Tuesday of the month. I put a sign outside for a few days before and everyone is welcome to join us to pray for whatever is on their mind. We live in , Leicestershire
Nina de Salis Young, Victoria Road, Woodhouse Eaves
I live on my own. I love people and company. I also like singing hymns, so I enjoy it very much. I'm very pleased they knocked on my door that morning
Phyllis Merriman, Pensioner, Oxford
For me, Streetprayer is an answer to so many questions I had: Why is it that every Sunday we dash across the city to our various congregations year after year while all the time living alongside Christians we have never met or hardly know? Why is it that when "The entire law is summed up in a single command: “Love your neighbour as yourself.”, we spend so little time with our neighbours? Why do neighbours come and go, and we never get to know them? Streetprayer helps us to reverse that trend and see our neighbours coming into the Kingdom as a result. Having experienced it at work since 2007, we're deeply grateful to God for what Streetprayer has helped happen on our street and we highly commend it to you.
Marcus Roberts, Rivers of Life Churches, Oxford
I have been living on Edgeway Road for 10+ years. All this time I did not feel a sense of belonging to or purpose for the street where I live. The prayer breakfast has opened up a door through which I have not only shared a meal with my neighbours but also prayer and conversation on matters that concern each individual.
