The annual World Day of Prayer will take place on Friday 4 March this year. It will be celebrated in Cheadle Hulme with a joint service at Cheadle Hulme Methodist Church at 2pm.
Everyone is welcome. You do not need to book a place.
The service is entitled ‘I know the plans I have for you’. The worship is based on the letter that the prophet Jeremiah wrote to the exiles in Babylonia. The exiles were in a context of suffering, uncertainty, and opposing views on how to respond to the moment. In the midst of all the uncertainties we are living under due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the WDP 2022 theme is a balm of confidence. It is an invitation to place our trust in God in times of suffering.
The service materials were prepared by the Christian women of England, Wales and Northern Ireland (EWNI).
World Day of Prayer is an international ecumenical organisation that enables women all over the world to share the ideas and concerns of the writing country. The EWNI WDP National Committee includes 18 different Christian denominations.
