Week of Prayer for Christian Unity – 20th – 27th May 2012

How will you be celebrating the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity?  Perhaps you will be meeting with other churches in your area for a meal, or for an evening of prayer or a Taize service?

Resources from the National Council of Churches for the week are available here:

For something different, you might like to look at the resources used by Churches Together in Britain and Ireland where the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is held at the beginning of each year.

From   Wednesday 23rd May there will be a programme of events held at Wesley Uniting Church in the City.  The programme is entitled “Knit Together” and a full brochure is available here:WPCU Wesley

Please let us know if you are planning an event, so that we may include it on this page!
