Elim Prayer Network

Who we are

The Elim Prayer Network came into being over 30 years ago to coordinate prayer across the Movement. It started as a small group, known then as the Elim Prayer Partnership, that met weekly in the Elim International Offices, Cheltenham. The group met to pray for issues to do with the life and ministry of Elim.

In recent years the prayer ministry has expanded and now calls upon the prayers of hundreds of partners in Elim churches throughout the UK. The influence of the Elim Prayer Network has gone beyond its original borders and is playing a vital role, not only in the life of Elim, but also in the wider prayer and church scene. The Network works in partnership with other national prayer streams in seeking to raise the profile of prayer within churches.

The Elim Prayer Network, for example, plays a vital role within the various prayer groupings that meet at Westminster. This helps Ministers and members to stay informed about prayer matters relating to Parliament.

The Network is also involved in a nationwide preaching and teaching arm led by Alistair Cole, which includes preaching at national, regional and local prayer events. The ministry seeks to facilitate joint town or city-wide prayer initiatives, and is involved in the training of intercessors.

A quarterly National Prayer Bulletin is published and sent out to prayer partners, Pastors, and prayer leaders in Elim Churches. This bulletin features prayer priorities for all aspects of Elim's work, but also reflects prayer needs relating to the wider Church and national scene.
