|1st March 2024- World Day of prayer
2.00pm at Christ Church Neston Road Willaston CH64 2TL
Every year the Christian women of a different country prepare a service which is used internationally in the largest act of ecumenical worship worldwide.
The preparation begins five years before the year they are used – and it is Christian Women from Palestine who have compiled the service to be used in 2024. As we all know, this is a country now beset by a war which has cost many lives.
The Theme of the service is 'I beg you, bear with one another with love'.
The Christian Women of Palestine are calling us to connect with the land from where Jesus came; where he was born, ministered and died – and from where our faith began and is rooted.
Despite living in an area of the world where there is ongoing conflict and the future is uncertain, the Christian women of Palestine are sharing with love a reminder that they are there, and they want to give hope to everyone.
There are many services in our country to celebrate the World Day of Prayer.
In our district, we are invited to join with Christians from all the local churches on Friday 1st March, at 2.00pm at Christ Church, Neston Road, Willaston CH64 2TL.
The service will be followed by refreshments, and everyone is most welcome to join us - men, women and children.
The theme of the service 2024 ‘Bear With One Another In Love’ seems very appropriate for these women who will not give up witnessing to the love of Jesus Christ.
World Day of Prayer is an international, inter-church organisation led by women which enables us to hear the thoughts of those women from all parts of the world: their hopes, concerns, and prayers.
The Day of Prayer is celebrated in over 146 countries. It begins in Samoa and prayer in native languages travels throughout the world - through Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas before finishing in American Samoa some 38 hours later.

Give the gift of Dignity this Mothering Sunday. They are ethical gifts you can give to empower women around the world – giving them their voices, rights and helping to turn the tide on gender inequality. You can dedicate your gift to someone who has supported you or who has inspired your respect. You can do it personally by going to the Mothers’ Union website www.mothersunion.org or put your donation in one of the Mothers’ Union collection tins/boxes in our churches.
