About Us

House of Prayer Ministries is a non-denominational Church based in the heart of the city of Plymouth, on the South West coast of England. We are made up of over 20 nationalities and a multiracial Congregation made up of European, Asian and African backgrounds. We feel that this makes us incredibly blessed as we are enriched by the variation of our cultures and different expressions of worship.

We have a great freedom in Praise and Worship and we give the word of God the highest place in the sanctuary. The results are awesome as we see God enriching our lives in giving us power to live the way that He has designed for us. House of Prayer Ministries is registered charity in United Kingdom. Charity Registration Number:1173516

  1. To share Christ and make Him known;
  2. To equip believers for the work of ministry;
  3. To serve and love Christ and our community;
  4. To fellowship;

These are translated into five simple words that define the reason of our existence as a church:
