Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2021

27 January 2021 No Comment

This ran from Monday 18 to Monday 25 January. 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 were possible this year.

We hope individuals, and individual churches,  marked 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.

We are grateful to Ruth Ridge, who held a short reflection each day at 6pm via the St John’s Community Team Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/stjohnsmethodistchurchsudbury . The videos of about 15 minutes are still available from the same page. Only a handful of people watched live, but there have been numerous views afterwards – over 100 in one case.

Box River Benefice, the most recent group of churches to join CTiS&D, have also been using the CTBI material every day during the week. They plan to use the big service material for a live-streamed evening service at 5pm on 31st January 2021. Go to www.facebook.com/boxriverbenefice/ . We hope as many as possible from Sudbury and District will join this service.
