Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

The aims of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity are

  • To pray as Christ prayed ‘That they may be one’.
  • To pray for the unity of all Christian people as we share in Christ’s ministry.

The Week of Prayer started more than a hundred years ago and has spread around the world. It offers opportunities to meet and pray with fellow Christians of different denominations.

The theme for 2012 is We will all be changed

Change is at the heart of our Christian faith. Saint Paul said that anyone who is in Christ is a new creation, and we are called to live as children in the light. The theme comes to us from the churches in Poland, who have reflected upon their own experience as a nation, and in particular how, as a nation, they have been changed and transformed by the many upheavals of their history, and sustained by their faith.

Change is also at the heart of the ecumenical movement. When we pray for the unity of the church we are praying that the churches that we know and which are so familiar to us will change as they conform more closely to Christ. This is an exciting vision, but also a challenging one. Furthermore, when we pray for this transforming unity we are also praying for change in the world.
