Oxford team

Please pray for our Student Life team working in Oxford, that they would “be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power, putting on the full armour of God, so that they can take their stand against the devil’s schemes.” (Ephesians 6:10-11)

 
 
Freshers' week

It’s freshers’ week at Anglia Ruskin Cambridge, Birmingham, Birmingham City, King’s College London, LSE, Newcastle and Queen’s Belfast universities from 18-24 September. Please pray for our Agapé Student Life societies to meet lots of spiritually open students that will lead to many gospel conversations.

 
 
London retreat

From 13-17 September the London Student Life team will go away on a retreat. Please pray this would be an encouraging time as the students and staff get to know one another better and pray and believe God for great things in the term ahead.

 
 
Relationships with student authorities

As the start of term approaches, student leaders of Agapé Student Life societies are making arrangements for events and stalls during Freshers’ week and into the start of term. Many of our societies are officially registered with their university Student Union. Please pray for good relationships with student authorities, that there would be no administrative problems and that Agapé Student Life groups would be a blessing to Student Unions.

GAiN team

The Global Aid Network (GAiN) team (Agapé’s aid partner) includes three staff and part time volunteers. Please pray for wisdom as they look for ways to involve people in the UK in responding to the needs of the poor.

 
 
New staff induction

From 4-6 September our new staff and interns will gather together in Birmingham for a time of training. Please pray for fruitful times of learning together and for good fellowship as our new staff get to know one another.

 
 
New academic year

As we enter into a new academic year please pray that Agapé's work would be "produced by faith and our labour prompted by love, with our endurance inspired by our hope in our Lord Jesus Christ". (1 Thessalonians 1:3)

 
 
End of conference

Give thanks for all our staff learnt during our recent summer conference. Please pray the lessons and principles learnt would stick with them and be useful for ministry in the year ahead.

 
 
Jack in Newcastle

Please pray for Jack who has recently returned from two years serving with Agapé in Russia to join our Newcastle Student Life team. Pray he’d settle in quickly and that God would use him powerfully in the lives of many students in Newcastle.
