The fellowship was born in 1938 as the Baptist Revival Fellowship when a group of
evangelical pastors in London, concerned for the low spiritual state of their churches
and with a consequent longing for a visitation of God in revival, began to meet together.
(Click on link to go to Theo Bamber page). Since that time the Fellowship has emphasised
revival but has insisted upon the continuing duty of reformation according to the
Word of God in personal and church life. The desperate need of our land for an outpouring

Fellowship for all evangelicals of whatever background concerned to see God’s saving
power in the land and His glory restored in His church.
A vital prayer partnership burdened to pray for revival in our generation.

What is the need?
Reformation: The evangelical application of the Word of God to personal and church

An extraordinary visitation: by the Living Lord to a church, a locality, a nation
or a continent so that people are faced with the reality of His felt presence.
A time: in which backsliders are restored.
A period in history: when God’s people are made joyfully responsive to His will,
resulting in inspired prayer, empowered preaching, effective evangelism and an increased
desire for personal holiness.
