Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

From Monday 18th to Monday 25th January churches around the world will mark the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. This year’s worship materials have been created by the Monastic Community of Grandchamp in Switzerland and are themed around Jesus’ words “Abide in my love and you shall bear much fruit“, (John 15:1-17).
The annual event, which first began in 1908, is designed to strengthen the ecumenical ties between denominations and encourage a sense of mutual support.
More information about the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2021 is available on the World Council of Churches website and points for daily reflection and action have been prepared by Churches Together in Britain and Ireland and are available here.
