Declaration: a New Year Prayer Week

09 Jan 2023

In January 2023, churches across the UK united through prayer, worship, teaching and putting faith into action.

Watch the event

At the start of the new year, believers from across the UK joined together to boldly declare God’s promises over 2023, thanking him for his provision and asking for breakthroughs in the year to come. 

We had an inspirational line-up of speakers, teachers and worship leaders including: Juanita Francis, David Shosanya, Shermara Fletcher, Emmanuel Adeseko, Jonathan and Abbiih Oloyede, Tobi Ashimolowo, Volney Morgan and New Ye – and many more.

You can rewatch all of the morning prayers, theology sessions and live TV shows on The Well’s YouTube channel.

‘This is the confidence that we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.’

Together, we prayed for our brothers and sisters who are living in extreme poverty and suffering the worst effects of the climate crisis. Our God is sovereign over all the Earth, and we called on our almighty Father for his divine provision and wisdom.

This event was presented by The Well, a powerful initiative working with Black Majority Churches and Christians of African and Caribbean Heritage to tackle extreme poverty and injustice.
