The 2020 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity begins on 18 January. The week is sometimes referred to as the "Octave of Prayer for Christian Unity", with its eight days running from the feast of St Peter to that of St Paul (25 January).
Resources for the week have been prepared by Churches Together in Britain and Ireland.) This year, their starting point is the Unusual Kindness, and the materials raise some of the contemporary issues addressed by the churches of Malta.
"....In spite of the turbulence of the world at the present time, we also discover
acts of kindness, of love, forgiveness and hospitality in places or from people we did not expect. As in the natural world, there are still the places where the water of life seeps into the mainstream and brings colour and joy and offers a hopeful future."
We are invited in this year's Week Of Prayer for Christian Unity materials to see God working through people and places which offer unusual kindness. If only we would do the appropriate kind of looking.
6.30pm Sunday 19th January — Churches together service will be held at Glazebury Methodist Church.
Join us for tea first at 5.30pm
