Annual Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

The Annual Week of Prayer for Christian Unity takes place in the coming week from 18th to 25th January. The theme for this year is “We saw a star in the East and we came to worship him”, (Matthew 2:2), taken from the account of the Magi to pay homage to the infant king. It is a call to unity of those from the North and the South, from the East and the West, old and young, men and women.

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity has a history of over 100 years, in which Christians around the world have taken part in an octave of prayer for visible Christian unity.
