Walk of Blessing Sept 2023

Ian Cole, along with family and friends walked an 8-mile sponsored ‘Walk of Blessing’ across parts of South Birmingham, praying blessing on every church and school they pass. The walk took place on Saturday 30th September to celebrate the 80th birthday of Ian Cole, founder of World Prayer Centre. Ian has just recently been given the ‘all clear’ after being diagnosed with prostate and bladder cancer in 2020.

The walk blessed nine churches and 10 schools along the route with our blessing prayers. You can download them to pray for schools and churches near you.  Download the blessing prayers.

The walk has raised almost £24,000 so far and three charities will benefit from the money raised.  World Prayer Centre will be the main beneficiary with two other charities receiving a tithe (10%) each of the money raised.  We will be blessing Love Your Neighbour based in inner city Birmingham, and Advantage Africa working amongst the poorest in Kenya and Uganda.
