Vision and History

It’s a great joy to find Christians who life nearby. We are constantly surprised as new people invariably turn up each time we hold a prayer breakfast or other event. For people who’ve just moved into the area it’s a chance to get to know their Christian neighbours. For students it’s also a great way of linking with the neighbourhood.

Streetprayer began in 2007 when we visited all households on Edgeway Road, Oxford, UK inviting them to a prayer breakfast. Twenty people came to the first breakfast and we now hold regular monthly breakfasts or other events on our street or in the area around. We’ve found that not only is this a great blessing to Christians but it also builds a bridge over which people have come into the Kingdom of God. Read on and see if you’d like to work together with us.

Jesus said: “May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them as you have loved me.” We believe that developing our love for one another as Christian neighbours will have a profound effect on the faith of those around us. We dream of streets transformed by the love of Jesus working through the Christians living there. If you’d like to join us please register. May God greatly bless your neighbourhood!
