Try Praying is here!

Try Praying is a nationwide (and beyond!) initiative to encourage everyone and anyone to pray.

Did you know that...

  • 27 million UK adults pray?
  • 10 million pray regularly?
  • 1 in 5 people who say they are not religious do pray?

Try Praying is a very simple idea to get people praying. The main instruments for doing this are a small booklet—and you!

Simply obtain one of the little turquoise books from your church or Margins Bookshop, read it first, then pass it on to someone you think might benefit from it. This might be a member of your family, a neighbour, a friend...anyone. Simply offer it as a 'no strings' gift—and then see what happens!

For more information, please watch the (very) short video.

Mark's Pennine Way Challenge

This year In2Out is celebrating its 10th Anniversary. That’s 10 years of offering hope of a better future to over 750 young people as they left prison and returned to their communities across the north of England. It's been a privilege to journey with them.

Looking ahead we want to do more - reaching even more young people leaving different prisons and returning to different geographic areas. In this anniversary year, our aim is to raise £50,000 to help make that goal possible. In May, Mark is hiking the 268-mile Pennine Way in 15 days, with the aim of raising £20,000 towards that total. You can follow his journey by subscribing to his blog here and donate towards his total here.

Do support Mark and In2Out if you can.
