Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2017

 

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is traditionally observed from the 18th to the 25th January Ė the octave of St. Peter and St. Paul. However, some areas observe it at Pentecost or some other time.

'Crossing Barriers' is the theme, especially relevant to us, of this yearís Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. The material for this year's celebration has been prepared by Christians in Germany, based on the words in 2 Corinthians reminding us of how we share in God's love and in a commitment to his message of reconciliation.

The material is dedicated to the memories of the Revd Stephen Brown who passed away in February 2016 and the Revd Canon Gwynn ap Gwilym in July 2016. Both Stephen and Gwynn had served as dedicated members of the CTBI Writers Group for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity for many years, making enormous contributions through their creativity and colleagueship which will be greatly missed but never forgotten.
