Introducing Peter!

As we prepare to launch into our brand new Internship in the next week we wanted to introduce you to our second Intern, Peter Prescott.  

"I was a student struggling to work out a direction for my life, when I wandered into a room that was hosting a week of 24/7 prayer. That week I encountered Jesus like never before, and I was permanently marked with a desire to be part of this movement of prayer and worship that the Holy Spirit is orchestrating across the earth in my generation. That desire led to my wife and I joining YWAM as full-time missionaries, and for the last four years we have been in Cambridge leading a nine-month urban Discipleship Training School and seeking to help establish the Cambridge House of Prayer.

After six years of full-time ministry, and the further joy and complication of two new little people being born into our family, we then stepped back last year for a sabbatical season. As we tried to discern what God was calling us to next, we found to our surprise that the Spirit was calling us to the North -- and so we are now the proud owners of a house in Liverpool. But that desire to connected to the House of Prayer movement remains unchanged, and so when we connected with Michael and Becci Ball and heard that in a few days Manchester House of Prayer would be starting a six-month internship, that still, small, familiar voice suggested that I should find out if perhaps -- just maybe! -- I should get involved..."


We are really excited to have Peter joining us and can't wait for him to start impacting the kingdom here in Manchester.  If you want to find out more about Peter and his wife Taryn head to or email him at
