The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is an international Christian ecumenical observance kept annually between 18 January and 25 January. It is an octave, that is, an observance lasting eight days.
The material for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2018 has been produced in the Caribbean.
The themes of the daily material raise some of the contemporary issues addressed by the churches of the Caribbean.

  • Abuses of human rights are found across the region and we are challenged to consider our manner of welcoming of the stranger into our midst.
  • Human trafficking and modern-day slavery continue to be huge issues.
  • Addiction to pornography and drugs, continue to be serious challenges to all societies.
  • The debt crisis has a negative impact upon the nations and upon individuals — the economies of the nations and people have become precarious.
  • Family life continues to be challenged by the economic restrictions which lead to migration, domestic abuse and violence.
  • The Caribbean Churches work together to heal the wounds in the body of Christ. Reconciliation demands repentance, reparation and the healing of memories. The whole Church is called to be both a sign and an active agent of this reconciliation.
    We will reflect on some of these issues on our website during the week.
