Women's World Day of Prayer
Women from around the world will be joining forces on
Friday March 4th to celebrate the annual Women’s World Day of
This year’s service has been written by the women of
Chile with a theme of “How Many Loaves Have You?”
The event will be celebrated in Hethersett Methodist
Church with a special service at 2 p.m led by Mrs Irene Sayer who is a
frequent visitor to Chile. She will be sharing some of her experiences.
“This is always an exciting day as a great wave of
prayer sweeps the world, beginning when the first service is held in Tonga and
continuing around the world until the final service takes place some 35 hours
later in neighbouring Western Samoa. By then the day will have been celebrated
in over 170 countries and over 5,000 services will have been held in England,
Wales and Northern Ireland.” Said Jean Hackett, president of the National
Committee of the Women’s World Day of Prayer Movement.
Although organised and led by women the services are open to all and the Hethersett event will conclude with refreshments and the sale of Traidcraft goods.
