Prayer Room

CLICK HERE FOR 40 days of prayer

The prayer room is closed following advice from the Government on Monday . – 26th March 2020

Info about the Prayer room – OPEN 24/7 for all ages, all churches, all people.

For six months (from Jan 2020!) we’ve all been gifted a space in the centre of Taunton to pray.

We’re not seeking to fill slots for the sake of filling up a calendar but simply there is an opportunity to spend some time with Jesus. If you are hungry for more of God, book out a slot or join in one of the open prayer times.


How to book?

  1. If you’ve not signed up for a slot before we’d like to meet you and show you around and how to gain access, you can meet Chris Sampson, Steve Reed, Sam Burton, Kate Solanki or Marion Hawkins at one of the open prayer slots or at Pursuit on a Friday night at Riverside. You can also email awakensomerset@gmail.com.
  2. Once you’ve had the intro you can sign up here: http://www.24-7prayer.com/signup/cbe735
  3. All prayer slots are just for you, although if you wish to invite some praying friends to join with you that is fine. The reason it’s exclusive to you is down to safeguarding to make sure everyone is safe.

Can I run an open prayer slot for anyone to come to?

If you wish to invite some people to your prayer slots, that’s fine, but if you’d like it to be listed on the 24/7 prayer website there needs to be a minimum of two people running the session for safeguarding reasons, then let us know the time, day & theme and we’ll add it email:

How accessible is the prayer room?

The main prayer space is a step up to a higher level, a wheelchair can be lifted up with help. Due to the length needed for a ramp we can’t put one in as it would be too steep to fit in the space. Toilets and sink is only accessible by stairs.


What facilitates are there?

There is a toilet, small sink, toaster and kettle with some supplies of tea and coffee. This is all accessible via a stairway, please take care on the stairs. There are also toilets at the Castle, Sainsbury, Morrisons and other central shops.
