National Month of Prayer for Toddler Groups

The National Month of Prayer (NMOP) is an ecumenical initiative of the ‘1277 Make Them Count’ group and happens throughout June each year. It encourages churches, individuals, and toddler communities to pray three ways – in groups, for groups and across groups in the UK. 1277 refers to the average number of days from birth to a child starting nursery.

Salvation Army toddler groups offer an amazing space for babies, toddlers and their parents and carers to experience a warm welcome, play, learn and develop a supportive community. They come in all shapes and sizes and are a place where the love of God can be experienced in so many ways but especially through the warm welcome that is offered to all who attend. 

The theme for 2023’s National Month of Prayer is ‘Welcome One, Welcome All’ and is based on the story of Zacchaeus found in Luke 19: 1-10.  For more details and other resources check out:
