Meet the community

24-7 Prayer has a vision to create a Mother house to provide a Hub for the 24-7 Prayer Movement, a Home for the global network of 24-7 Communities (including the Order of the MustardSeed), and a localHouse of Prayer,Mission and Justice.Our mission is to bring renewal and resource to the Church, to be a place where God’s purposes are birthed, and leaders and ministries are incubated.

Our Story

Our inspiration is Herrnhut, the village in Saxony, built on Count Zinzendorf’s estate, that became the epicentre of the Moravian100-year prayer meeting, and from which the Great Missions Movement of the Reformation was launched.

We will ultimately implement this vision through:

  • A residential community to host the presence of God, to host pilgrims who travel to the Motherhouse, and to model 24-7 Prayer’s culture and values
  • A disciplined rhythm of persistent prayer and worship, hosted by the residential community
  • Hospitality for pilgrims
  • The creation of a centre of excellence for spiritual teaching and educational resources
  • An incubator for creativity
  • Enterprise, as an outworking of prayer and worship
    Refuge for 24-7 Prayer affiliated missionaries and activists, to help facilitate respite and restoration

In September 2020 we begin the outworking of this vision by establishing the Seed Community on the Waverley Abbey Estate. Jill & Kirk Weber have just moved into Waverley Abbey House. In addition to hosting onsite and online prayer, the SeedCommunity will be running onsite and online retreats, courses, and internships.
