World Day of Prayer


Ardnamurchan Parish Church 10.30 am

On Friday, March 6th an estimated 3 million people – men, women and children - in over 170 countries will gather to observe the World Day of Prayer, using an order of service written by Christian women from The Bahamas and translated into over a 1,000 different languages and dialects. In the British Isles alone over 5,000 services will be held. The day will begin when the sun rises over the island of Samoa, and continue until it sets off the coast of American Samoa some 35 hours later.

The theme of the service, ‘Jesus said to them, "Do you know what I have done to you?"' is taken from St. John’s Gospel, chapter 13 (the account of Jesus washing his disciples feet) and challenges us to demonstrate the same radical, unconditional love for others that Jesus showed.
