Prayer Collective Christchurch (PCC) is a missional community, a launching pad & connection point for prayer and worship expressions in Christchurch, New Zealand.
We aim to create, champion & inspire new modes of citywide & localised prayer & worship initiatives. We aim to cultivate unity in the Church through collective prayer and worship gatherings, mobilize intercessory & ministry teams, and partner with various initiatives in Christchurch to connect people to God in meaningful ways.
In 2015 PCC birthed DEEP—a reoccurring, 24 hour, citywide, worship & prayer gathering. Since those early days, we've pioneered several other initiatives. Find out more.
We also help promote other prayer & worship gatherings in churches happening across the city.
We want to inspire people's prayer life, equip them with resources and champion their own ideas around prayer & worship. Get connected with ongoing prayer & worship gatherings/communities or get inspired to start your own. Find PCC gatherings here & city gatherings here.
WHO WE ARE
While PCC is comprised of a core team of individuals from different churches and backgrounds, we are truly a wider community of believers around the city who interact regularly and support one another in pursuing a myriad of prayer, worship, creative & learning initiatives God is inspiring. There are many people involved at various capacities. We are not a "church" nor intend to become one and consider ourself more of a network & missional community. We aim to support the citywide Church body. Read about the backstory of PCC here.
We have been influenced by 24-7 Prayer International, BURN 24-7 and the faithful prayers of Christchurch's own intercessors of the last several decades.
The team leaders are under YWAM Oxford, New Covenant Church (Colorado, USA) and receive advisement from the PCC spiritual advisory board based out of Christchurch & Auckland.
