Will you pray with us?

Paul wrote in Philippians, 'In everything by Prayer'. There are impossible challenges in our country and we need God to act more than anything. Every day our teams pray together asking God to bless our Groups, volunteers and young people. We believe we can reach a generation of young people, thanks to your prayers, so please join in.

What's your 'one thing' for young people?

We'd love you to join us in praying for young people during this challenging season. Create or find a picture that sums up the word - write the word on a bit of paper or card, draw or paint something, take a photo or find a GIF or meme. Share it on your social media pages using the hashtag #prayonething, and/or email it to

Creative prayer spaces for Urban Saints

We produced some creative prayer spaces for the recent 24/2 Prayer event in October. They unpack some prayer requests and other creative ways to inspire prayer for the different areas of Urban Saints. Although written for the 24/2 we will continue to update them and they can help shape your prayers throughout the year:

Local prayer networks

We now have a prayer network up and running across the UK and Ireland, with Regional Prayer Coordinators (RPCs) in place in ten of our twelve nations/regions. The RPCs collect together prayer news from Urban Saints Groups to pass on to the prayer supporters. If you would like to join one of these local networks, you can sign up and select the region or nation you are most interested in from the list provided.

N.B. We still have vacancies for RPCs in the South East and South London. If you are interested in finding out more about the role click here.

"We are more than conquerors"

Being an 'Urban Saint' means prayer is essential and we seek to pray together regularly asking God to bless our Groups, volunteers and young people as well as the ministries of other youth organisations around the UK. We are passionate about inviting God into everything we do and we don’t want to achieve anything without God getting the glory. We can reach a generation of young people, thanks to your prayers, so please join in.

Anyone can join in with this and we encourage you to take part - wherever you are based and however you are connected to Urban Saints. 

Thank you so much for supporting us in this way!

More Than Conquerors

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written:

“For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:35-39 New International Version (NIV)
