The Seed Community

24-7 Prayer has a vision to create a Motherhouse to provide a Hub for the 24-7 Prayer Movement, a Home for the global network of 24-7 Communities (including the Order of the Mustard Seed), and a local House of Prayer, Mission and Justice. 

24-7 Prayer’s inspiration is Herrnhut, the village in Saxony, built on Count Zinzendorf’s estate, that became the epicentre of the Moravian 100-year prayer meeting, and from which the Great Missions Movement of the Reformation was launched.   

Phase one is the establishment of the Seed Community, which will be a House of Prayer based on the Waverley Abbey Estate. Waverley Abbey Estate is the home of Waverley Abbey Trust (formerly CWR), which was founded by Selwyn Hughes 55 years ago. It has a global legacy of teaching people to pray the Scriptures through its resource Every Day with Jesus. They have kindly made room on the Estate for 24-7 to begin to outwork their vision, and Jill & Kirk Weber live on the Estate where Jill is leading the 24-7 Prayer Seed Community. 

The Seed Community hosts onsite and online prayer and runs a number of onsite and online retreats, learning communities and internships.

Waverley Prayer Room – 9am-5pm
Come and pray in the Waverley Abbey Prayer Room at Waverley Abbey House or enjoy our prayer gardens! Sign up for a slot here between 9am – 5pm Monday through Friday.


For more information as to how to get involved in the Seed Community email Jill at jill.weber@emmausrd.com, or head to The Seed Community Website here.

On the website you can also book a retreat in The Shepherd’s Hut and find out more information about the Remembering Garden.


When our community was founded in mid 2006 (originally as Guildford Boiler Room and later Emmaus Rd Church), one of its foundational visions was to be a ‘House of Prayer to all nations’. Therefore we are so excited, that as a church which was born out of the 24-7 Prayer movement, we are partnering with the newly formed Seed Community and encourage you to get involved!
