Is Christ divided? That’s the theme of this year annual week of prayer for Christian Unity
January 18 to January 25 marks the annual week of prayer for Christian Unity. This is a world wide event in which the local churches take part each year.
This year’s service will be held at Our Lady and St. Charles Catholic Church, 69 Queen’s Road, Wisbech, and will start at 6.30pm on Sunday January 19.
The theme for this year asks the question “: Is Christ divided” While in faith his followers will answer ‘No’ the sad reality is that our church communities continue to endure scandalous divisions.
The preacher will be Canon Matthew Bradbury, Vicar of Wisbech St. Mary and Anglican rural dean.
A collection will be taken up during the service for the Syrian children, so traumatised by the horrendous violence sweeping across their country.

Refreshments will be served in the Rosmini centre following the service and everybody is invited.
The week gives church goers and all people of faith an opportunity to come together, acknowledge the divisions which exist, celebrate what they can do together, (witness the leading role played by churches in the running of the local food bank) and pledge themselves to work harder to promote unity.
