As part of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, Rev. Helen Kirk will be leading prayers in our church on Monday 18 January from 10am for about half an hour. In addition to our prayers we are invited to St Joseph's Roman Catholic Church in the High Street at 6pm on 22nd January to share prayers with them.
Material for this year's event on the theme of 'the salt of the earth', was prepared for worldwide use by the Christians of Latvia. Today, Latvia is a crossroads where Roman Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox regions meet. Because of this unique location, it is home to Christians of many different traditions, but no single one of them is dominant. Gathered together by the Archbishop of Rīga, members of a variety of church communities and projects in Latvia were asked to reflect on the chosen theme and the experience of their work.
