WOMEN’S WORLD DAY OF PRAYER

Friday 2 March 2012

This year it was a great pleasure to have the joint service for The Bridges Group at St Lawrence’s Church Napton.

The service had been compiled by the Christian women of Malaysia and both the pictorial display mounted by Mrs Monkhouse and the service sheet gave information about life in modern day Malaysia.

The service included both modern and traditional hymns and Mrs Gillian Roberts gave a very appropriate and interesting talk on the theme: “Let Justice prevail”.

Refreshments were served after the service – tea and cakes.

The collection made amounted to £83.50 and this has been sent to the WWDP office from where it is used for grants to a wide variety of Christian based charities, as well as in preparation for next year’s service, which will come from France and will have the title:”I was a stranger and you welcomed me”. We look forward to another interesting and enjoyable service.
