The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is an international event which takes place every year on the same dates in January. Churches in different countries are invited to prepare the materials for use throughout the week, and recently Christian Aid has also got involved in suggesting actions as well as prayer.
In Frodsham we call this week ‘Christians in Frodsham Praying Together’. We are fortunate that for a number of years the churches here have generally worked very well together, notably over such things as the Churches Together newsletter which goes to every house in the town three times a year; Christmas and Easter Journeys for local primary school children; Fun Days in Castle Park and the ecumenical service at St Laurence on the last Sunday in the year.
The following events will take place during the Prayer Week:
Sunday 19th January, 10.45am: Covenant Service at Frodsham Methodist Church, to which all are invited; followed by lunch at 12.30pm
Tuesday 21st January: Frodsham Methodist Church open for prayer, with said prayers on the half-hour from 10am to 12noon, followed by soup lunch
Wednesday 22nd January, 7.30pm: combined service at St Luke’s Roman Catholic Church, preacher Rev'd. Denise Harding, followed by refreshments
Thursday 23rd January: Main Street Community Church Prayer Journey during the day
Friday 24th January: Prayer time at St Laurence, followed by tea
This is a very special time of sharing with our fellow Christians in Frodsham. Do support as many events as you are able.
