Please note that we will no longer have meetings on Tuesday or Thursday during the 12:00pm or 8:00pm time slots. Otherwise, everyone is invited to continue to jump into prayer with our Antioch New England body (for the 1st time, or for the 150th time) as we contend for God's heart, salvation, justice, and presence in New England and around the world. 80 days strong so far!
