(A Women led, Global, Ecumenical Movement)
BUILD ON A STRONG FOUNDATION
On Friday 5th March, several million women and men around the world will be joining together to hold the same, specially prepared service on the same day. This years’ service has been prepared by the women of the Republic of Vanuatu, with it’s black and white sandy beaches, coral reefs and beautiful forests. This year we are called to ‘build on a strong foundation’ and live in unity, love and peace in the context of ethnic and cultural diversity.
The World Day of Prayer is an international, inter-church organisation which enables us to hear the thoughts of women from all parts of the world; their hopes, concerns and prayers. It is celebrated in over 170 countries beginning when the sun rises in Samoa, and travelling throughout the world – through Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas before finishing at sunset in American Samoa some 39 hours later.
Coronavirus means that we have to do things differently this year, and we are holding a zoom service instead of meeting in person. Everyone is very welcome to join us for this very special and inspirational service. A link to the service will be available nearer the time. It will appear in the benefice e-newsletter on Monday and next Thursday or, if you would like it emailed directly please contact Dee Tyrer 01865 820570.
More info on our service and the zoom link will come out on Monday…
