Over 100 attend World Day of Prayer Event

World Day of Prayer Service at 2pm on Friday 3rd March 2023 at Our Lady of Ransom Church, Grange Road, Eastbourne.

The annual World Day of Prayer Service was hosted at Our Lady of Ransom Church, Grange Road, Eastbourne on Friday 3rd March, written this year by the women of Taiwan on the theme ‘I have heard about your faith’.

We received a warm welcome from the Priest, Father Kevin Dring and were pleased to have the Mayor of Eastbourne, Councillor Pat Rodohan and his wife with us in the congregation of over 100 people.

Before the Service and for the six hymns during the service we enjoyed the Children’s Choir leading us, conducted by their Musical Director, Marylou. One of the teenagers accompanied some of the hymns for us on the piano.

Five months leading up to the Service the eleven members of the local World Day of Prayer Committee representing 8 Churches in town have been busy preparing for the Service and then they all participate in the Service.

After the Service we enjoyed tea and cakes in the Church Hall and a narrated slideshow with pictures of Taiwan. Thank you to all who contributed to the offering of £700 + gift aid which will help the work of World Day of Prayer in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and projects run by Christian charities around the world
The Service was livestreamed and has had 60 views and is available on You Tube under Our Lady of Ransom, Eastbourne.
