This year’s World Day of Prayer service takes place on Friday, 5th March 2021. Women of the Republic of Vanuatu (located in the South Pacific Ocean) have prepared this year’s service. Women, men and children of all ages are called to ‘Build on a strong foundation’, like the wise man who built his house on a rock, as encouraged by Jesus, and live in unity, love and peace in the context of ethnic and cultural diversity like Vanuatu and so many other places around the world.
World Day of Prayer is an international, inter-church organisation which enables us to hear the thoughst of women from all parts of the world: their hopes, concerns and prayers. It is celebrated in over 170 countries. It begins in Samoa, and prayer in native languages travels throughout the world – through Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas before finishing in American Samoa some 39 hours later.
Many of this year’s congregational services will not be able to be held in local churches, owing to the global coronavirus pandemic, but it is hoped to offer livestreamed or recorded services in some places, including Falmouth. This year the Falmouth and Penryn World Day Of Prayer Service will be hosted by Emmanuel Baptist Church on our Youtube channel.
Further details will be published here in the coming weeks, but in the meantime please mark the date.
