A 10-session course to equip you in the foundations of the House of Prayer

Two Venues: New Milton and Fareham

New online version coming soon

Intro to NFHOP is a 1 day a month program designed to strengthen your prayer life, equip you for ministry, and above all teach you how to live a life of intimacy and encounter with Jesus. It is about calling a generation who are given in total devotion through prayer and fasting to pursue the heart of God.

This year we will also be running this course in association with Solent House of Prayer at a venue in Fareham, as well as at our regular venue in New Milton.

Participants will receive biblical teaching on the foundations of night and day prayer, intimacy with Jesus and other key messages and themes from within NFHOP. There will be practical teaching and training in both lifestyle and ministry. In addition, participants will spend times of personal devotion in the prayer room; there will also be specific training for those who are musicians or singers, or who would like to learn to prayer-lead.

Intro to NFHOP is for anyone who is looking to spend a focused season of time seeking the Lord to cultivate and develop a lifestyle of prayer and fasting, and to be fuelled with intimacy to do the works of the kingdom. Intro is also the training programme for those who wish to serve in the House of Prayer as musicians, singers, prayer leaders or in any other capacity. There is, however, no obligation to join New Forest House of Prayer.

Intro is designed to impart the vision, values and understanding of the basic structure of New Forest House of Prayer, along with the practical skills necessary to develop into a successful long-term intercessory missionary.


Intro runs for 10 sessions, on one Saturday each month except July and August, starting in January 2017. It is open to all over the age of 18, married couples or singles.

Each Saturday begins at 10.00am and ends at 4.00pm. Participants are also encouraged to attend as much of the House of Prayer programme as possible (either Solent or New Forest). There will be recommended reading and assignments to be completed.


The cost of the course is £50* – this covers the basic cost of running the course, including course notes for all sessions. There will also be a number of recommended reading books of which we encourage you to acquire your own copy.

*We do not want finances to hold anyone back from applying for this course, if finance is an issue for you, please get in touch and we will do what we can to help. Payment by installments is also available.
