This year, the annual Week of Prayer for Christian Unity begins on Sunday 18th January and concludes on 25th January. The theme this year is “The Well is Deep” and is inspired by the encounter between jesus and the Woman at the Well in Samaria (John 4:7).
Churches Together in Britain and Ireland have produced a series of useful readings, prayers and meditations that may be used throughout the week. They are available FREE of charge from www.ctbi.org.uk/weekof prayer.
The Archdiocese of Cardiff will play host to an ecumenical service of Evening Prayer at St. David’s Cathedral, Charles Street, Cardiff on Sunday 18th January at 3pm. The guest preacher this year will be Revd. Eden Fletcher who runs the successful Brunswick Methodist Church in Newcastle city centre. It would be wonderful to see as many people as possible attend this sign of desire for unity among all Christians.
