Week of Prayer for Christian Unity – Jan 18-25

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. 18th – 25th January

Before Covid, we marked this with a joint event together with the other churches in Ilkley. Unfortunately, this has not been possible this year. However, I have attached this year’s resources to this email should you wish to use them for personal prayer and reflection.

This year’s Week of Prayer for Christian Unity has been prepared by the churches of the Middle East, the history of which was, and still is, characterised by conflict and strife, tainted with blood and darkened by injustice and oppression. The Christians of the Middle East offer these resources conscious that the world shares many of the travails and much of the difficulties that it experiences, and yearns for a light to lead the way to the Saviour who is the light that overcomes darkness.
