World Day of Prayer 2022

WORLD DAY OF PRAYER

(A WOMEN LED, GLOBAL, ECUMENICAL MOVEMENT)

“I KNOW THE PLANS I HAVE FOR YOU”


2022 is a special year for the World Day of Prayer in England, Wales and Northern Ireland as this year, we have prepared the service. It has been challenging and rewarding to write about three countries


that make up our area: our landscape, people and culture all shaped our history. We celebrate our diversity and the contribution made to our countries by the many groups and individuals who have made their home here. We use our Bible text “I know the plans I have for you” from Jeremiah to reflect on some issues facing us today: poverty, domestic abuse and disability, finding hope in difficult situations and encouragement in the help we can give to each other.

World Day of Prayer is an international ecumenical organisation which enables women all over the world to share ideas and concerns.


The service outline has been distributed to the rest of the world, along with a Bible reflection. All this work comes to fruition on Friday 4th March 2022 when services will take place in Samoa and moving on through New Zealand and Australia across Asia, Africa and Europe and finally the United States and South America finishing in American Samoa.


Across England, Wales and Northern Ireland services will take place in large urban centres, such as Central Hall Westminster, and in remote village churches.


The Richmond/ Kew service will be held in

St. John the Divine, Kew Road, TW9 2NA on Friday 4th March at 2pm.


All are most welcome in what promises to be a very moving and uplifting service. Refreshments will be provided after the service. For further information please contact Diane, your local WDP representative - dianemorris@btinternet.com
