The Women’s World Day of Prayer in Stone

Gimp-Office-1The Women’s World Day of Prayer is a global, ecumenical movement of informed prayer and prayerful action, organised and led by Christian women who call the faithful together on the first Friday in March each year to observe a common day of prayer and who, in many countries, have a continuing relationship in prayer and service.

The service is written by a different country each year and that country then becomes the focus of the world’s prayers on the day itself. The first service of the day will take place on the Island of Samoa and the last service will take place on American Samoa. From the time that dawn breaks over the Island of Samoa until the last services of this special day, the world is circled in prayer for 36 hours.

This year the Stone Service for the Women’s World Day of Prayer will be held on Friday March 7th at 2 pm at St Dominics Church Stone. The Service has been prepared by Christian women of Egypt and the theme is ‘Streams in the Desert’. As with most WWDP services all over the world services begin or end with refreshments; we usually have these after our service in Stone.

We look forward to seeing you at the service; men are most welcome to come as well!
