Geneva 16

27th-30TH OCTOBER 2016

- 2016 Programme Information and Travel Info now LIVE! - 

The momentum of our annual gatherings has been building. Last year, almost 1000 people met in Vienna to celebrate 15 incredible years of non-stop prayer and worship...

Over 4000 people from 40 nations worshipped at St Stephen’s Cathedral, at the invitation of Cardinal Schonborn, the Bishop of Vienna. We departed with the words of St Francis of Assisi ringing in our ears, ‘Now let us begin.’

"Awaken the Dawn..."

As we prepare for Geneva 16 our continent is being shaken to the core, as old certainties collapse and darkness intensifies. However, we are people of hope, and along with the psalmist, we want to be steadfast and confident in God as we set our faces to ‘awaken the dawn’ of God’s new story for Europe and the Middle East.

You'll explore the city, pray for it and the French-speaking world.

We're so excited to see how God uses this opportunity to travel and to pray for neighbouring cities.

3. St. Peter's Cathedral

On Saturday night we are honoured to be invited to gather in the beautiful reformed St. Peter's Cathedral, famous for John Calvin preaching there. 

Die Wichtigkeit unserer jährlichen Treffen nimmt stetig zu. Letztes Jahr trafen sich um die 1000 Menschen in Wien, um 15 geniale Jahre Nonstop Gebet und Anbetung zu feiern…

Auf Einladung von Kardinal Schönborn, dem Bischof von Wien, beteten über 4000 Menschen gemeinsam im Stefansdom in Wien Gott an. Die Worte von Franz von Assisi klangen bei der Abreise aus Wien in unseren Ohren nach: ‚Nun, lasst uns beginnen‘.


Während wir uns auf Geneva16 vorbereiten, wird unser Kontinent bis ins Tiefste erschüttert, Bekanntes wird in Frage gestellt und die Finsternis nimmt zu. Aber wir sind Menschen der Hoffnung. Standhaft und im Vertrauen auf Gott wollen wir seine Werkzeuge sein, wenn er die Geschichte Europas und des Mittleren Ostens neu schreibt.

Unsere Treffen sind offen für alle; ganz gleich ob du ein Künstler, Aktivist, Lehrer, Geschäftsmann, Gebetsleiter, Student, Missionar oder Gemeindegründer bist, ein langjähriger Freund von 24-7 oder unsere Bewegung gerade erst am entdecken bist: Wir möchten dich herzlich zu unserem Treffen im Oktober in der wunderschönen Stadt Genf in der Schweiz einladen.
