This summer, the Commonwealth Games is coming to Birmingham!

The 2022 Commonwealth Games starts on Thursday 28th July and ends Monday 8th August. The eyes of the world will be on Birmingham. We want to invite you to join us in praying for the games before, during and after the event. We want to see God move in a powerful way through this event.

Queen’s Baton prayer relay

Join us as we follow the Queen’s Baton and pray for each area of the Commonwealth!  World Prayer Centre has developed a free prayer diary which gives the route of the Queen’s Baton and some prayer points and a video for each nation. 

Download the free prayer guide:

The Queen’s Baton left London on Thursday 7 October 2021, and is travelling an impressive 269 days around the Commonwealth Nations and Territories arriving in Birmingham on Thursday 28 July 2022. It will travel approximately 90,000 miles on its journey with over 7,500 Batonbearers trusted with the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to carry the baton in their community. See the route and upcoming locations here.

As the Baton travels through each of the different places, it provides an opportunity to pray for each of the Commonwealth Nations and Territories, recognising that many of The Commonwealth Nations make up the vibrant and flamboyant cultural community that is Birmingham.
