Seekers prayer meeting at the Háteigs-church

Thursdays at 15:00

Seekers prayer meeting is a community for prayer that is especially designed for asylum seekers in Iceland. But many of those who “used to be asylum seekers” (accepted as refugees) are participating, too. The meeting is also open for others who want to pray for asylum seekers/refugees and wish their well being.

The name of “Seekers” is coming from the idea that we all must be looking for something in our own lives on earth as well as actual asylum seekers as refugees.

Seekers prayer meeting at the Háteigs-church is held on Thurdsdays 15:00. Rev. Eva Björk Valdimarsdóttir and Rev. Ása Laufey Sæmundsdóttir (both district priest of Reykjavík west deanery) serve together with Toshiki Toma, pastor for immigrants.
