Week of prayer for Christian Unity

5 January 2011 No Comment

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is kept in Sudbury from Sunday 16th to Sunday 23rd January 2011.

This special week has been celebrated for more than 100 years and has spread around the world. In 2011 the theme is All Things in Common and comes to us from an ecumenical group in Jerusalem.

The Christians of Jerusalem and indeed much of the Middle East are living under tremendous pressure and we are all too aware of the difficulties they experience both in terms of the political and religious situation and their dwindling numbers. However they are also communities of faith that worship, pray and study together, and work for the good of their society. In 2011 they invite the world-wide Church to pray with them for the unity of the Church, the coming of the Kingdom of God and justice and peace in the Holy Land and through the world.
