24-7 Prayer in Ibiza is a community looking to make Jesus known through the means of prayer, mission and justice. We are based in two locations on the island. We have a simple rhythm of community life, shaped around learning, hospitality and prayer.
In San Antonio, during the summer tourist season, we welcome individuals and teams from around the world to be trained and equipped in mission and serve in the West End – one of the most densely populated areas of bars and clubs in Europe. We look to meet the emotional, physical and spiritual needs of the people we meet, by offering prayer, helping people get home safe, giving out ‘Jesus Loves Ibiza’ Bibles, and being available, working nocturnally through the season and opening our centre during the daytime. We also work amongst those in the sex industry and those in prison. This is a developing work, beginning in 1999, and in recent years has begun to seek to serve the local community during the winter months too.
In 2014, we began a new expression of 24-7 Ibiza in Sa Penya, by beginning to explore how to pray for and serve a Roma community living on the edge of the main Eivissa town. We prayer-walk, offer hospitality, build relationships and creatively advocate for the people who live in Sa Penya. We are seeking to build bridges between different cultures and communities.
