One in the Spirit, one in the Lord
Today we begin the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. It's our annual call to seek the reconciliation of Christians which will only be found in Christ, in whom all barriers are torn down. Our Lord prayed that his friends would be one, so that the world might believe. This week we make a special effort to join our prayers with his.
We've got services, prayer gatherings and events with our brothers and sisters at other churches in Attleborough every day until next Thursday, the Feast of the Conversion of St Paul. We're hosting the main service for the week at St Mary's this Sunday at 4pm. It'll be an Epiphany Carol Service, followed by tea. We'd love to see you there.
There are also Prayers for Unity at 12 noon each weekday in various locations: details below!
We'll be thinking and praying about Christian Unity at the 10am Parish Eucharist in St Mary's this Sunday, and again would be delighted to see you and yours. In the Gospel we hear about our Lord's first miracle at Cana in Galilee; the choir is singing the anthem 'Almighty and everlasting God' by Orlando Gibbons. And there's Sunday Club for children!
