Get involved

You can help every UK school become a prayed for school!  There are several different ways you can be involved with Pray for Schools: 1. Begin prayer groups or pray individually at any time.

Register a group or an individual

Why register?

Our vision is to see every UK school become prayed for.

There are many groups praying who aren’t registered with us – so we can’t let them know about others in their area who are praying, or give them resources and encouragement.

We also often have people asking whether a particular school (maybe yours!) is prayed for. If your group is registered, then we can put you in touch with them.

Registration is free, and you will receive a newsletter 3 times a year of encouraging stories and ideas to help you as you pray.

We love to hear from home intercessors/individuals who are praying for their schools too. Please fill out the form below:
