WORLD DAY OF PRAYER
Friday 6th March at 2.00pm.
This years’ service has been prepared by the Christian women of Zimbabwe and the theme is ‘Rise! Take up your mat and walk’. It is Great Wymondley’s turn to host this year and due to on-going building work on our church, the service will be held in the Village Hall next to the Green Man PH. We will be joining with people in over 120 countries and islands and we will all be taking part in the same service. This is a joint service for all the churches in our benefice and everyone is very welcome.
This year, during Lent, we will be meeting for Morning Prayer at 8.30am. - 8.50am. (Monday - Thursday) in St. Ippolyts Church.
What is Morning Prayer, I hear you ask?!!! Well, it’s praying......in the morning!!! Seriously though (if I have to!) the Church of England has a short service called Morning Prayer made up of Bible readings, psalms and prayers which are said every morning often by the Priest alone but, on a good day, with others too! We also pray for our own communities, those who have asked us to pray for them and any important events that are happening around us.
During Lent, I’m really hoping that more of us can gather together to pray so perhaps you would consider committing to join me for one or more morning a week? Sometimes we will use the formal Morning Prayer service but sometimes we will have a more casual style of prayer, depending on who is leading the service. Either way, everyone is welcome to join us - no praying experience required!!!
We begin on Thursday 27th February - hope to see you there.
With love - Ginni
