How we started
Pray Haringey began in the 90s, as a group of church leaders who passionately believed in the power of prayer to transform Haringey. Through strong relationships and working together with the community in prayerful action, much has been accomplished for the kingdom of God. The focus of our unity is not so much events but friendships, genuine love for one another and seeing change in our community
Prayer - Continuing regular rhythms of gathered prayer. We use a prayer calendar that unites and focuses our prayer for the borough.
Relationships - Nurture our God-given unity through healthy communication and encouragement. We want to connect, challenge and bless local partners.
Action - Work together on projects that bless Haringey; support events that celebrate Haringey; and be ready to respond to local issues in appropriate and supportive ways.
Youth - Encourage and engage in every opporunity to listen to young people especially their prayers.
