Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2021

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is traditionally observed from the 18th to the 25th January – the octave (=8!) of St. Peter and St. Paul.

On the eve of the week, (Sunday 17th 6:30pm) we shall meet together (online – see below) and each day share a short reflection. Stay tuned!

For 2021, prayer, worship and reflection materials have been prepared by the Monastic Community of Grandchamp in Switzerland. The theme that was chosen, “Abide in my love and you shall bear much fruit”, is based on John 15:1-17 and expresses Grandchamp Community’s vocation to prayer, reconciliation and unity in the Church and the human family.

The service, hosted by St Michael’s Sandhurst, will have the theme of the unity of the person, of the church, and of all creation, based on Churches Together in England (CTE) material.  It will start at 6.30 pm and last about 45 minutes. 

You can access the service via the public Facebook page, www.facebook.com/StMichaelsSandhurst/live .  It is not necessary to log in to Facebook or sign up for an account in order to watch.  Those with Facebook accounts will be able to participate by leaving comments during the service.

Following the service, there will be an opportunity to chat via Zoom, please contact your church or churchestogetherincrowthorne@gmail.com for details.
