WORLD DAY OF PRAYER
(A WOMEN LED, GLOBAL, ECUMENICAL MOVEMENT)
Rise, take your mat and walk
This year the World Day of Prayer will take place on Friday 6th March 2020 at 2.00 pm at St.Thomas’. The Women of Zimbabwe have prepared this year’s service and they encourage us all to reflect on the difficulties and unrest that have plagued their country over many years. They encourage us to ‘Rise, take your mat and walk’ with them as they continue their often turbulent journey towards full reconciliation. The Day of Prayer is celebrated in over 170 countries. It begins in Samoa and prayer in native languages travels throughout the world — through Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe, and the Americas – before finishing in American Samoa more than 36 hours later.
The Canterbury group, which consists of members from all denominations of Christian Churches in our city, meet together to plan this service. We are asking everyone of all ages to join us for this very moving service which is followed by tea.
