18th - 25th January 2019 is the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. This year's theme is 'Only Justice' and the materials have been produced by the churches of Indonesia, working in a context of ethnic and religious diversity where there is a strong emphasis on the need for a unity that is built on solidarity and collaboration. They also highlight issues of economic injustice and how diversitty of religious practice is challenged in the face of radicalisation. The Week of Prayer for Christiam Unity provides an opportunity to reflect on the context in which we pray for Christian unity, explore how divisions in our society contribute to divisions in the Church and consider how injustice creates challenges to developing our shared life together. The Week of Prayer for Christin Unity is promoted in the UK and Ireland by Churches Together in Britain and Ireland where you can find further information and resources. You can also pdf download this year's pamphlet (5.43 MB) from our website. It contains background information, prayers for every day of the week and a variety of other resources.
