Crystal Cryer has been the National Director of 24-7 Prayer Scotland for many years, serving faithfully as a volunteer leading the movement.
We were delighted when we heard that Crystal got engaged! After her years of faithful service we would love to make a donation to bless her and her fiancé Ondrej as they embark on their new life together.
Crystal was supposed to be here this week but unfortunately Ondrej has pneumonia so they were unable to make it. We’dre excited to surprise them with this gift!
How it works
The tradition of The Gathering Auction goes back further than we care to remember, and is unlike anything you will have experienced before.
The best way to sum it up in one word is OUTRAGEOUS.
It is an opportunity for outrageous giving to some highly worthy causes connected with 24-7 Prayer.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much can I bid?
We want everyone to be involved, but please only donate what you can afford to give. We’re encouraging outrageous generosity, but if you give £1 or £1000, you are still a star in our eyes.
Can I donate towards more than one item?
Of course! Donate towards as many items as many times as you like but, as hard as it may be, try not to get too carried away!
Where does my money go?
Each lot will support a different cause, and all causes are listed on the website. ALL the money received from the donations will go to that cause.
