Week of Prayer for Christian Unity
Week of Prayer for Christian Unity': Wednesday 18th January - Wednesday 25th January 2017.
As it is the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation (1517) it is an important time to reflect on the issue of Christian Unity.
The theme chosen for this year is 'Reconciliation the love of Christ compels us'(2 Cor 5:14-20).
Throughout the Christian world, people of different denominations come together during this special week for conferences, prayer services and social gatherings.

We thank you for this week of Prayer
that has brought us together as Christians
and that has enabled us to experience
your presence in different ways.
grant us ways to praise your holy name together
so that we continue to seek
reconciliation and grow towards unity.
