World Day of Prayer (3/4)
March 4 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm
World Day of Prayer 2022 is Friday, March 4th
England, Wales & Northern Ireland 2022
World Day of Prayer takes place internationally on the first Friday of March every year. In 2022 that will be March 4th If you can’t celebrate World Day of Prayer on the first Friday in March, choose another date that works for your community and celebrate in symbolic solidarity with women around the world! These days it is particularly important to be flexible. With all of the complications and disruptions due to the coronavirus – please have your service on another day or try a virtual service. Whatever you decide – be safe!
Through the worship service written by the women of England, Wales and Northern Ireland we focus on the letter that the prophet Jeremiah wrote to the exiles in Babylonia (Jeremiah 29:1-14) The exiles were in a place of suffering, uncertainty, and opposing views on how to respond. Today, we come together to hear the stories of women who feel excluded, listen to the fear of a child refugee and see a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, and multi-faith society in England, Wales and Northern Ireland (EWNI). For Jeremiah, God’s plan was clear, and we share this assurance by singing it.
