We’ve got a unique opportunity for a team to head to India, over the Easter period, for two weeks of incredible prayer.

You'll be joining with our partner, Emmanuel Ministries Calcutta (EMC) and interceding for their work with children, who have little or no access to education, family support or health services.

The work of EMC is diverse and incredible; from homes for children who have been abandoned and lost, to rehabilitation centres for child drug addicts and a pavement club, providing education to children living on the street.

Each project is focused on helping one person at a time and believing that change is possible through God’s guidance.

So, are you ready?

Two weeks in India will challenge you personally and stretch your faith. You will experience how the local church is at the heart of tackling poverty and injustice. Plus you will have the chance to show God’s love in practical ways as you visit and learn from inspirational communities.

Who are we looking for?

Individuals with a heart for intercessory prayer. You’ll need to be flexible and adaptable, able to work in a team, alongside other volunteers and EMC staff.

What will you be doing?

You will spend time visiting the projects that EMC run and praying for the work of the organisation and the people you meet. EMC would love you to pray for new breakthroughs in their work and for their future as they reach more vulnerable children.

Spending time in India was eye opening, amazing and extremely faith strengthening.

Anne Ballard

India was hands down the best experience of my life. Never have I laughed so much, has so much fun with children and adults with stories that broke my heart so much. It was inspiring, amazing and heartbreaking but most of all so faith strengthening and fun!

Charlotte Adams

Going to India was an incredible privilege to see God’s power transforming the lives of people who came from extreme poverty. It was amazing to be involved with the projects and build relationships with the children, being part of what God is doing in their lives!
