Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

‘Be-Longing: Praying for Unity amidst Injustice’ is the theme of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (WPCU) 2023.

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is traditionally celebrated between January 18 and January 25 – originally the octave of St Peter and St Paul.

For this Week of Prayer for Christian Unity we are guided by the churches of Minneapolis as we seek to explore how the work of Christian unity can contribute to the promotion of racial justice across all levels of society. Through this resource, the CTBI writers’ group has also focused our attention on the 30th anniversary of the murder of Stephen Lawrence, which we mark in 2023. The work of restoring hope through justice undertaken in Stephen’s memory continues to inspire and change lives for the better.

“As we join with other Christians around the world for this year’s Week of Prayer we pray that our hearts will be open to see and hear the many ways in which racism continues to destroy lives, and to discern the steps we can take as individuals and communities to heal the hurts and build a better future for everyone.” General Secretary, Churches Together in Britain and Ireland, Dr Nicola Brady.

Resources – including daily reflections and an example order of service – are available for download and to order.
