Week of Prayer for Christian Unity - 18-25 January

During the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, Christians are reminded of Jesus’ prayer for his disciples that “they may be one so that the world may believe” (see John 17.21). Hearts are touched, and congregations/parishes all over the world exchange preachers or arrange special ecumenical celebrations and prayer services. 

This year, we are delighted to be hosting the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity service IN OUR VERY OWN CHS. This will be on Tuesday 20th January, at 7.30pm (put it in your diary!)

Traditionally the week of prayer is celebrated between 18-25 January, between the feasts of St Peter and St Paul. In the southern hemisphere, where January is a vacation time, churches often find other days to celebrate it, for example around Pentecost, which is also a symbolic date for unity.
