Due to the current situation, it has been slightly difficult to plan the annual World Day of Prayer service in which all our village churches in Curry Rivel, Fivehead and Swell usually join together with Christians around the world on the first Friday in March. The service, “Build on a Strong Foundation” prepared this year by the Christian women of Vanuatu, will therefore take a slightly different form. For those able to access the internet we will hold a service on Zoom at 2pm on March 5th. For those unable to join this service, I have some paper copies of the service which can be delivered to anyone who would like to follow it for themselves on the day.
For the Zoom service, please email firstname.lastname@example.org before Sunday February 28th at the latest, to be added to the invitation list.
For a paper copy of the service, please ring me as soon as possible on 01458 251603 with your name and address.
The service is always interesting and looks at the issues facing people, and particularly women, in a different country of the world each year, using material they have themselves prepared. This year we are praying with and for Vanuatu, which is a scattered group of islands, east of Australia and north of New Zealand, with a British and French colonial history, and subject to devastating cyclones. In 2022, the service will be one prepared by representatives from England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and we hope we will be back together in one of our welcoming church buildings, but for this year we are doing the best we can.
Do join us – everyone is very welcome.
