The World Day of Prayer this year will be on Friday 1st March. It is an international, inter-church organisation, the service being prepared in a different part of the world each year. It is estimated that 3 million people in more than 170 countries will gather to observe the Day of Prayer, which comes this year from Slovenia. In the British Isles over 5,000 services will be held.
In Woodstock, at the Baptist Church, 5a High Street, OX20 1TA, there will be two services:
- 11.00a.m. for children from Year 5, Woodstock Primary School and from Year 7, the Marlborough School
- 7.00p.m. ecumenical service with the theme 'Come – Everything is Ready!'
Everyone is warmly invited to either or both services; parents, grandparents and friends are welcome to attend at 11.00a.m.; adults, especially those at work during the day, are welcome to attend at 7.00p.m.
