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 offers opportunities to meet and pray with fellow Christians of different denominations.

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2021

Monday 18 to Monday 25 January

The Week of Prayer is international and offers local opportunities to meet and pray with fellow Christians of different denominations.

During the eight days we usually have a United Service, a Forum, midday services followed by a soup lunch, and Prayer Breakfasts. None of these is possible this year.

We hope individuals, and individual churches, will mark the week using resources downloaded from the Churches Together in Britain & Ireland website, https://ctbi.org.uk/ .  Materials have been prepared by the Monastic Community of Grandchamp in Switzerland. Printed versions are not available this year.

Ruth Ridge is aiming to do a short reflection each day at 6pm via the St John’s Community Team Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/stjohnsmethodistchurchsudbury .

    The Week was well supported, with an estimated one hundred people at the Sunday evening and about forty at most of the other gatherings. We experienced different styles of worship within the overall themes of the Week.
