We will be hosting the local service for the Women’s World Day of Prayer on Friday 2nd March at 6 p.m.

Women’s World Day of Prayer is a global, ecumenical movement of informed prayer and prayerful action, organised and led by Christian women who call the faithful together on the first Friday in March each year to observe a common day of prayer and who, in many countries, have a continuing relationship in prayer and service.

The service is written by a different country each year and that country then becomes the focus of the world’s prayers on the day itself, which begins as dawn breaks over the islands of Tonga in the Pacific and continues across each continent until the last services of this special day are held back in the Pacific, on the islands of Samoa, circling the world in prayer for 36 hours. This year’s service focuses on Malaysia and has as its theme ‘Let Justice Prevail’.

All are welcome to attend the service, including men and children! We will be holding activities for children during the service and refreshments (including Malaysian food) will be served after the service, which usually lasts just over an hour. A variety of local churches, including the Salvation Army, Methodist church and Anglican and Roman Catholic churches, will be joining us for this service, so please do come along and join us.
