Daniel Fasting

At that time I, Daniel, mourned for three weeks. I ate no choice food; no meat or wine touched my lips; and I used no lotions at all until the three weeks were over.
Daniel 10:2-3 NIV

The Daniel Fast as the passage above indicates is a partial fast. We are aware that people approach it differently. Some people decide to have all three meals in a day whilst others may decide to skip meals or have nothing at all on some days. We encourage you to participate at the level that you are able. Please keep in mind the main aim of this fast is to give ourselves to seek the Lord. Those of you who have specific health issues please be wise during the fast.

Practical Guidance

The following are recommended during the fast:



Wholemeal rice, pasta

Pulses – lentils, barley etc.



(Fruit or herbal tea)

(Meat and dairy are avoided)

Remember this is not a legalistic process! We trust that this will be a blessed time for you individually and collectively for us as a Church as we seek God together and learn about Covenant Relationship and Kingdom Rulership.
