                    All - men, women and children are very welcome

 

People of all ages are called to 'Rise, take your mat and walk' to join us in this day of prayer.   Women of Zimbabwe have prepared this yea's service and they encourage us all to reflect on the difficulties and unrest that have plagued their country over many years.  They share the challenges they have met and the hopes they have for the future.  They encourage us to 'RISE, TAKE YOUR MAT AND WALK' with them as they continue their often turbulent journey towards full reconciliation.

World Day of Prayer is an international inter-church organisation which enables us to hear the thoughts of women from all parts of the world, their hopes, concerns and prayers.  The preparation for the day is vast.  An international committee is based in New York and there are national committees in each participating country.  Regional conferences meet to consider the service and then local groups make their plans.  Finally, at a church near you on Friday 6th March 2020, people will gather to celebrate the service prepared by the women of Zimbabwe.
