Praying for Young People in our Diocese

No matter how young or old you are, you can support the children and young people of Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Suffolk & Peterborough with your prayer! Please also pray for the Ignite Youth Mission Team and all who work with young people in our Diocese.

Below you can find a number of ways to join in this important part of our mission to help children and young people grow closer to Jesus:


Ignite Prayer Network

Why not join the Ignite Prayer Network? The network is made up of people from around the Diocese, and beyond, who regularly pray for the Ignite Team and the young people they work with. Anyone of any age can join, whether they choose to pray for us once a day or once a month! All members and their intentions are remembered at a monthly Mass offered by our chaplain.
