Call to Prayer took on the lease of St Edmund Fishergate in January 2011, and have re-opened its doors as a House of Prayer for Norfolk and Norwich. With a team of over twenty drawn from different denominations in and around the area, the aim of Call to Prayer is to encourage, enable and facilitate prayer, and the opportunities opened up by having our own premises are key to this.
Our vision for Fishergate is to be asanctuary of Christian prayer for those from all churches, denominations and styles, where the body of Christ can come together, united by the Spirit, to build an altar to the Lord.To see His Kingdom come and His will be done. My house will be a House of Prayer Luke 19:46
To this end the following are in place
We understand that services have been held on the site since the late Anglo-Saxon period, and that in medieval times it was a place of pilgrimage, housing a fragment of St Edmund’s shirt, so are deeply mindful of the centuries of worship that have soaked this beautiful, ancient building. Call to Prayer is privileged to continue this into the 21st century.
The building will be closed on Sundays, but may be visited at appropriate times on other days, preferably by appointment.
