DAY OF PRAYER 2021: Our Q & A document has been updated, please use the following link to view: Arrangements for Day of Prayer
The Day of Prayer this year will be different from any we have ever known. All over the world, people will be worshipping on the day as usual but in unusual ways.
The Day of Prayer is not only a global event: it is also an important date in every local ecumenical calendar – at least it should be. So the National Committee asks all branches to mark the day locally in whatever ways they can.
Many of you have expressed disappointment that the National Committee has chosen not to produce one service that everyone can join in with. There are a number of good reasons why we have not done this, not least the fact that we have 2,500 branches – only Germany has more.
We have been delighted at the enthusiasm shown by a number of branches to present this year’s service in imaginative ways and thank those who have offered to share these with others.
We have put together a number of tools to help you:-
• For answers to commonly asked questions – follow link above
• For a basic PowerPoint that you can customise for your own use – contact the office
• For a link to a download of the hymns for the service – contact the office
• For Helpful Hints about your service, including advice about Zoom – see letter sent by post to every branch secretary
