2 Mar 2018 - Women's World Day of Prayer
|Author: Lynne Vaughan||Published: 12th February 2018 09:24|
We welcome everyone to join us in the largest act of worship on the planet.
The theme for the service in 2018 is 'All God's Creation is Very Good!' We will join an estimated 3 million people around the world that day in a service which has been written this year by the women of Suriname in South America.
Starting in Samoa as the sun rises, and ending as the sun sets off the coast of American Samoa, the service will have been translated into more than 95 languages and 1000 dialects as we are reminded that we have responsibilities in caring for this wonderful world we live in. With its vast rainforest and wealth of resources, Suriname asks us to pray for conservation and the protection of wildlife, through an awareness of pollution, misuse and abuse, as well as for the situation in Suriname and concerns for the future.
The Day of Prayer is not just for women, all are most welcome, men, children, families - please do join us. Our motto is: ‘Informed prayer, prayerful action'.
