You can contribute to the regional impact of Jesus’ kingdom in your city or country region. See the 83 regions of Australia listed below. 

Some Regional Strategies on Our Heart:

Some of this work is natural and ordinary. Some is supernatural and extraordinary.

1. Prayer for our Regions

We are developing a sites where you can list your prayer partnerships, prayergroups and regional Houses Of Prayer as private or public prayer groups that pray for your region.

Register your church or prayer group at Be encouraged to see and be flames on the map!

This helps others can join your group and helps you you connect with other local groups (e.g. periodically or via prayer chain) to pray together for your region.

We invite  you to use the list below to identify and pray for your own region regularly. You may like to print these regions so you can pray over other regions also. We sense a tremendous release of God’s power as we do this.

2. Prayer & Worship Gatherings

Initiated and hosted by multiple local churches and ministries, providing regular opportunities for the body of Christ to pray & worship together in various venues, regionally and centrally in and around Melbourne. This needs the active support of pastor’s networks.

We particularly envisage and encourage 24 hour events (e.g. Friday 7pm to Saturday 7pm) that are big enough to challenge us to work with the other churches in our region so we are praying together for our region, and building relationship and the ability to sustain collaborative regional 24/7 prayer and worship in the future. We envisage the inclusion of creative worship expressions such as painting and dance. Collaborative evangelism could arise.

Have a look at:


In practice:

Regional worship gatherings will emerge when there is local initiative and momentum that we can gather around to support. This needs committed church leaders, venues, worship leaders, prayer leaders, artists, dancers, event planners and organisers.

3. Freedom Festivals

We see the body of Christ, in different regions around Melbourne, combining resources to host all-age, family-friendly festivals with live music, comedy, evangelistic preaching, food, rides, healing tents, prophetic stalls, dream interpretation stalls, prayer ministry tents, bible study tents, quiet prayer and meditation tents, painting, dancing etc. This can begin by hosting stalls at general regional markets and festivals.

In practice:

Teams from many local churches are already present in local festivals and are collaborating as joint forces and are being discipled. It is another step to host Freedom Festivals – so this will happen when there is Spirit led mobilisation of organisers, evangelists and comedians to preach, and lots of people and resources from many local churches.

4. Prayer & Evangelism Training

Lifestyle training includes identity and character development, confession and repentance lifestyle, baptism of water and Holy Spirit, taking communion, living in community with other believers, fasting, learning how to worship God, chat with God, declare blessings, see the needs around you, connect with people, encourage people, identify persons or houses of peace, pray for people, tell your God stories, share good news, lead pre-believers to Christ, baptise people, lead bible discussions, receive from God, meet people’s needs, heal sick people, cast out demons, prophesy, receive words of knowledge, raise the dead.

In practice:

There are obviously many general and applied training courses and processes.

  • We are keen to engage in training that is based in relationship– discipleship- rather than event or task based.
  • We are examining materials and processes that can be adapted by local trainers to the proposed strategies.
  • Let us know training you recommend and trainers and authors who are willing to place their video, audio and written training materials online for people to download free of charge.
  • We’d like to hear from evangelists who are willing to disciple others in ‘natural’ supernatural relational evangelism. Is that you?

We list these  regions of Australia and our neighbouring nations to prompt you to partners to pray for your region and each others and to prompt you to connect, pray and reach out as the Body of Christ – one Church in your local area.

Spiritually we see ourselves as one in Christ: The Great Southland of the Holy Spirit – Australia, New Zealand, New Guinea and Papau, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Fiji and Samoan Islands.
