World Day of Prayer

1 March 2022 No Comment

This Friday, 4th March 2022

There will be a service at Glemsford Methodist Church, Tye Green, Glemsford, CO10 7RH, at 2pm. All are welcome!

Previously the Women’s World Day of Prayer, this is a global event where every country around the world takes part in the same service on the same day.  Each year the service is written by women of a different country; the service this year has been prepared by Christian Women of England, Wales and Northern Ireland with the theme “I know the plans I have for you”.

The WDP 2022 programme is based on the letter that the prophet Jeremiah wrote to the exiles in Babylonia (Jeremiah 29:1-14).  The exiles were in a context of suffering, uncertainty, and opposing views on how to respond to the moment.  Today, we come together to hear the stories of women who feel excluded, listen to the fear of a child refugee and learn to see the context of a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, and multi-faith society in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.  For Jeremiah, God’s plan was clear, and we share this assurance by singing it.
