The Leeds Lent Prayer Diary remains an invaluable resource for bringing people together in prayer for the City of Leeds during Lent, providing Christians from different denominations with a daily focus to pray for current needs. Each day of the diary features a different project working to bring positive change to the city of Leeds through mission, social action, education, arts, and more. Entries are written by the projects themselves and provide an update on their work along with specific prayer requests.

We are now open for expressions of interest.  If you would like to submit an entry, please contact

Leeds Lent Prayer Diary Launch Event 2023

The Leeds Lent Prayer Diary launch event was organised by Leeds Church Institute (LCI) and took place at Roscoe Methodist Church. The evening began with market stalls run by the projects featuring in the diary. This was followed by a welcome to the Church from Reverend Edward Sakwe, an introduction to the launch by Helen Reid, director of LCI, and a series of prayers led by Candy Ferreira Powell from Youth With a Mission. Finally we were fed an incredible Carribean Spread, and ended the evening with more Networking. Thank you to everyone who joined, it was a huge success.
