City Prayer Prayer has had a Steering Group to guide the vision. Originally with five members, as the ministry closes at the end of June 2021, there are two of us who have been holding the reins:
David Gilbey – Founder and Leader. Since 1980 a member of Life Church, (Elim Pentecostal), in the centre of the City. David is a retired police constable and a former Branch Leader of the Christian Police Association in Essex and until 2015 co-leader of Chelmsford’s Healing on the Streets (HOTS) Team. May 2018 to April 2021, David was Chair of Christians Together in Chelmsford (CTiC).
David is also regionally and nationally involved, including serving on the the Team of Transforming Essex Intercessors and since October 2020, as UK Pioneer for global ministry, The Rooftop.
Anne Bemmant – was one of the leaders in the youth work of a small FIEC Church in Barnston, near Chelmsford, for a number of years, before joining the City’s Life Church (Elim), during the early 90’s. Anne was involved in their Prayer Chain. Having a heart for the people of Chelmsford, as well as the Nation, Anne has been a part of the Chelmsford 24-7 Prayer Support Team since 2015, stepping-up to her current role on the Steering Group, July 2018.
