Women's World Day of Prayer Services
Women’s World Day of Prayer is an international, ecumenical, prayer movement that invites women, from a different part of the world each year, to prepare a worship service through which their hopes and fears for their country may be brought before the whole world in prayer on the first Friday in March. This year’s theme of ‘Am I Being Unfair to You?’ was written by the Christian women of the Philippines & focuses on the Bible story of the workers in the vineyard: Matthew 20 v 1-16.
In 2013, Typhoon Haiyan – named locally as ‘Yolanda’ – struck the Philippine islands in the western Pacific Ocean. This is mentioned in the service together with life experiences of a girl, a mother and an older woman. There is a reflection on the artwork designed by Rowena ‘Apol’ Laxamana-Sta.Rosa. It is very thought provoking and illustrates contrasting scenes. Why not find out more about the theme, the Philippines and the service?
This is not a day of prayer just for women - everyone is welcome! Services on Friday 3rd March at 10.30am & 7.30pm hosted by Abingdon Baptist Church
