To find out more about Women’s World Day of Prayer, visit the national website
The interdenominational movement of the Women’s World Day of Prayer invites everyone to attend one of over 5,000 services being held on Friday 2nd March with the title ‘All God’s Creation is Very Good!’ We will join an estimated 3 million people around the world that day in a service which has been written this year by the women of Suriname in South America.
Starting in Samoa as the sun rises, and ending as the sun sets off the coast of
American Samoa, the service will have been translated into more than 95 languages and 1000 dialects as we are reminded that we have responsibilities in caring for this wonderful world we live in. With its vast rainforest and wealth of resources, Suriname asks us to pray for conservation and the protection of wildlife, through an awareness of pollution, misuse and abuse, as well as for the situation in Suriname and concerns for the future.
This is not simply a day of prayer for women, but for everyone who cares about our world and those who live in it. For details of services in your area and for further information and resources, please visit the WWDP website: www.wwdp.org.uk
The service in Southwell will take place at Southwell Methodist Church on Friday 2nd March at 2.00 pm.
The Revd Peter Hibberts will lead The Reflection based on Psalm 8 and the service will be led by Mrs Jean Dando.
The service will be followed by refreshments.
We invite you to join us.
Jean Dando (Chair)
