Awakening North

A small group of Christians from different churches in the region, with the support of the local churches, the team that led Gather: Events North East and Betel, a Christian charity based in Hexham, are planning to organise 1 day of fasting and prayer, 3 days of encounter meetings to share the Gospel and 7 days of outreach meetings, prayer & worship in September 2020, praying for a revival in our villages around Ponteland (Northumberland – Newcastle upon Tyne) in the North East of England.


In August 2018, while praying for Ponteland, The Lord directed us to start to pray for the villages around us, to the East, West, North and South of Ponteland (Genesis 13:14-18).

In December 2018, The Lord gave certain instructions: pray for the villages; prayer walk; pray, worship and blow the trumpet; post tracts, prayer meeting leaflets through doors, post prayer request cards; evangelism in the villages showing short film; meetings with short talk and worship in villages; and about September 2020.

On 16th February 2019, a group of us visited each of these villages to pray and worship and blow the shofar. In March 2019, we continued praying and shared the vision with others. On 13th April 2019, a group of us came together to pray and worship and plan evangelism outreach in the village halls.


“What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul?”
Mark 8:36

Jesus Christ said, “I am the way and the truth and the life.”
John 14:6

The first outreach event was held on the 11th of May starting in the North, in Whalton. We continue to organise one outreach event each month. During the second round of meetings, we have started to see people giving their lives to Jesus Christ and others encouraged in their faith and in living a life for Christ. The third round of village meeting began on 14th March 2020.

Please do join us for future events - if you cannot come, please do pray. If you live in any of these villages or know other Christians who do, please encourage them to join us and pray.

Please find below a prayer diary to help.

Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them. Matthew 18:19-20
