In loving memory of Deirdre Hurst who sadly passed away on 22nd August 2022
A Celebration of Deirdre’s Life took place on 22nd September at Holy Trinity Brompton.
A video recording and personal tributes are shared below.
I don’t recall exactly when I first came across Deirdre, but my lasting memories are of her as a powerful intercessor, leading prayer groups effortlessly and with zeal. A true prayer warrior and foot soldier of Christ who now, has joined all the saints who from their labour rest, listening with a smile to the comforting words of her saviour: well done, good and faithful servant. And to David, Jenny, and the entire family, what a legacy!
Deidre’s teaching changed my life. I live in Sweden, and on a holiday to England in 1988 I was born again after praying with my sister Angie Mills. Angie had started attending a teaching group, taught by Deidre who travelled to Virginia Water weekly. I went home with several tape sets, and Angie regularly sent me new ones. On a few visits to England in the years following I attended Deidre’s meetings which were always faith filled and powerful. Thank you Deidre from the bottom of my heart, for giving me the tools of Faith, the power of confessing the Word and the importance of a faith-filled life at such an early stage in my walk. I have continued to live the life you taught us and have taught my children and now my grandchildren. God bless you in your heavenly home ❤️❤️❤️
Deirdre was a striking member of a generation who responded to the call to prayer and intercession. She was spirit filled but also incredibly sensitive and sensible. She could also be very funny but never at anyone’s expense. She and her admirable qualities will be remembered and also missed.
Our sincere prayers are with you and rest of the Family to celebrate the life of Dear Deirdre. Although we never met she was instrumental in ensuring you were part of the historical gathering of cousins where we met and connected in Sri Lanka. Our apologies that we cannot be at the service however we will be in sprit with our thoughts of all of you.
With Love and Gods Blessings

She was passionate about the Word and the authority of the Word of God. What a privilege to have met her in Virginia Waters Bible and prayer group. Her teachings are unforgettable! and I am for ever grateful!
May the Lord embrace her family, fill them with courage, peace and
His amazing tender kind love!
Deirdre was a woman of great faith and grace.
She was always a dear sister and friend in my heart, as you are David.
Let the Great Comforter surround you with His so overwhelming love, my dear brother.
Our sincere thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time of great sorrow. May you find comfort in the memories that are yours to cherish always, and strength in the companionship of those who share your loss. The meetings of cousins in Sri Lanka were special to us all.
God Bless You – Sincerely, Irving & Ann
