The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is an opportunity for Christians from local churches to come together in prayer, and many local Churches Together groups will host joint services together during this time.
The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is traditionally observed from 18-25 January each year. However, some areas observe it at Pentecost or some other time.
Resources are available each year from the Churches Together in Britain and Ireland (CTBI) website at www.ctbi.org.uk/weekofprayer
The international resources are adapted by the Britain and Ireland writers group, and extra material is often written, such as meditations for each of the eight days.
Stephanie Neville, a member of the Pray24Brum organising group, reflects on Birmingham’s annual ecumenical prayer relay.
