World Women Day of Prayer

Women’s World Day of Prayer

Women’s World day of Prayer is an international, inter-church organisation, which enables us to hear the voices of women from all parts of the world; their hopes, concerns, and prayers.

 

The preparation for the day is extensive; an international committee works from New York and each participating country has its own national committee.

Regional conferences meet to consider the service, and then local groups make their plans. Finally, Churches Together in Alderley gather on 7th March in St Philips & St James Church at 7pm to celebrate a programme of worship offered this year by women in Egypt.

The theme of the service is ‘Streams in the Desert’. And will have a universal appeal. Local resident Rachel Roberts will talk about her work in Egypt.

One of the oldest civilisations in the world, Egypt has long been home to the Coptic Christians. Since the uprising in 2011, there has been conflict between religious groups. Political change affects individual lives and we pray with the women of Egypt for peace.

We envisage a great wave of prayer, rising with the sun over the islandof Samoa and sweeping across Asia, Africa

Men, women and people of all ages welcome, with refreshments served at end of service 8pm.
