We've had a busy few months and wanted to keep you all up to date with some of the things going on with us at the moment. Just this last month we hosted Jaye Thomas from IHOP-KC and also held a training day for around 30 people from Manchester and around the North of England.
Thanks for reading,
Michael and Becci

One thing that the Lord spoke to us about when we started and has begun to highlight again is that MHOP will have a base in the city, a building from which all that we do is run. At the moment we meet at various locations around the city, which has been great, but as things grow and the number of meetings increases this gets more and more difficult.
We wanted to ask for your prayers about this and your support. If everyone who reads this post or our email newsletters gave between £20 and £50 a month to MHOP then we could begin to look at renting somewhere to house the things we do. Also there may be people out there with connections or expertise who may be able to support us in this process or know of somewhere that we could base ourselves more permanently.
We wanted to encourage you that if you value what MHOP does, even if you aren't able to give you time to be a part of our prayerwatches, you can play a vital role by partnering in your finances with us. Everything we do as MHOP is through people's giving and MHOP is run by a team of Intercessory Missionaries (those vocationally called to be intercessors) and volunteers. Please consider how you can be a part of the prayer movement in our city.
As you may be aware, MHOP recently received charities status and as such we can now claim Gift Aid on any donations also.

It was a pleasure to have Jaye Thomas with us in June. Jaye lead a worship seminar for us which was full of insights in leading God's people in worship prophetically and then lead an evening of worship which was an incredible time of worshipping God and strengthening our commitment to Him. We hope that those of you who came were really blessed! Sadly, the audio from the worship seminar was not recorded so it will not be made available on our site but hopefully this won't be the last time Jaye is with us in Manchester!
Our next Intro course starts in September. Intro is an opportunity for you to give Monday and Friday each week for 6 months to the Lord in the place of prayer, receiving teaching and training on topics such as intimacy and intercession as well as pratical ministry experience from being involved in MHOP.
