SUNDAY 16TH JANUARY 2022 (start date)

+ Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity – an advance date for the diary – Sunday 16th January 2022 will be the launch service and more detail to come. The theme is 'We saw His star in the East...' from Matthew chapter 2. This year's Service is written by the church in the Middle East where there has been, and still is, so much division, conflict and strife.

Once again it is a great opportunity to go deeper in your relationship with Jesus around a subject so relevant today.

This event is organised by Petworth Area Churches Together (PACT)
