World Day of Prayer is a women led, global, ecumenical movement and The Day of Prayer 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 36 hours later.
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’ and live in unity, love and peace. We will learn more during the service about their country and the challenges they currently face.
Due to the pandemic, the Eastbourne committee representing several local churches, will not be arranging a church service this year, but we WILL be hosting a Zoom service at 2.15pm on 5th March. Those wishing to join the service will need to contact Margaret Stirmey by phone on 01323 731891 to receive the link, and also the service booklet for them to follow.
